This is the next generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class Saloon, the firm’s popular premium executive saloon. It now shares much of its technology with the flagship Mercedes product – the S-Class.

Equipment

There are three equipment levels available from launch on the C-Class – SE, Sport and AMG Line – along with a long list of optional extras to further personalise your car. Even the lowest SE spec cars get a fair amount of standard kit.

Standard Mercedes-Benz C-Class saloon equipment

Starting with base-spec SE, you get 16-inch alloy wheels along with artificial Artico leather upholstery, the Audio 20 multimedia system with a seven-inch screen and the new ‘Touchpad’ fingertip information input syste. Added to that is comfort suspension, halogen headlights, reversing camera, pre-wiring for the Map Pilot sat-nav, automatic windscreen wipers, cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring, a three-spoke steering wheel, digital radio and a storage package with front cup-holders.

Moving up towards Sport trim means larger 17-inch alloys along with aluminium interior trim and contrasting stitching. The outside gets chrome detailing, while sat-nav and heated sports seats are thrown in too. There’s an interior lighting package installed, LED headlights, lowered comfort suspension, an autonomous parking system with parking sensors and split-folding rear seats.

At the top of the tree you find AMG Line specification. This means 18-inch alloys, and AMG bodykit, AMG sports seats and steering wheel, a leather upper dashboard, sports steering and suspension, and paddles for the gearbox if an automatic ‘box is fitted.

Optional Mercedes-Benz C-Class saloon accessories

You can expect a wide range of optional extras on many C-Class models. There’s a number of packages available to buyers which allow you to add more equipment for less than it would cost to specify each component separately.

The Executive Pack is for SE models only and adds heated seats, sat-nav and split folding rear seats.

Sport and AMG Line models can have the Driving Assistance Pack, which adds radar-guided cruise control as well as blind spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist and pre-safe – which prepares the car in the event it detects an impending accident.

Models fitted with an automatic gearbox and in either Sport or AMG Line will be able to add the Premium or Premium Plus packs. These include a glass panoramic sunroof, a powered tailgate, keyless entry, a memory package for the seats and ambient lighting. The Plus pack adds COMAND sat-nav and surround sound.

Other options include a range of paint schemes, interior trims and alloys. You can order a tow bar, a 360-degree reversing camera, a head-up display, active air suspension and even a system to keep the cabin smelling nice.
