Mercedes-Benz will make a use of the Geneva motor show to uncover powerful and updated models. As you know 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 has already shown, now it is time for Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan 2019. This generation C-Class arrived for the 2015 model year, so the changes are typically minor. Mercedes says “The engine is also more efficient, but we’ll have to wait for EPA ratings to see just how improved it is”.
On the outside, the front and rear bumpers are reworked, and the headlights and taillights are now standard LEDs that also get a new look. A new LED Intelligent Light System joins the options list, and it comes with a wide high beam. The front bumper adds chrome-plated trim, while cars equipped with the AMG Line Exterior option get a diamond radiator grille. The standard twin five-spoke 17-inch wheels are also new.
Inside, the C-Class adds standard smartphone integration, an optional larger center screen, and the optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster from the S-Class. The 12.3-inch screen changes a pair of 5.5-inch displays and offers three display styles: Classic, Sport, and Progressive. A 7.0-inch center screen stays standard and the new optional screen is 10.25 inches. A new leather-wrapped steering wheel has touch control buttons to handle both the center screen and the instrument cluster. The infotainment system can also be controlled via voice commands or a touchpad controller on the center console that adds haptic feedback. To keep safety, the C-Class improves a suite of active safety and autonomous driving features from the E-Class. The semi-autonomous driving system is enabled by improved camera and radar systems. A forward camera lets it see up to 1,640 feet ahead (including 295 in 3D), while the radar scans 820 feet head, 130 feet to the sides, and 260 feet to the rear. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan will continue to sale in the U.S. late this year.
