Five Facts About The All New C-Class You Might Want To Know
The recently launch Mercedes-Benz C-Class Saloon is sold out.
Yes, it is sold out at the moment. However, more units are on the way and you can put your booking now but be prepared to wait until March 2023 to get your new C-Class, both the C200 and also the C300. Parts shortage, shipping issues and the continued war in Europe are all part of the problem.
Meanwhile, here are some interesting facts about the C-Class to get your attention.
- The C 200 features a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which generates 204 hp and 300 Nm. Powered by a petrol 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit, the C 300 can produce up to 258 hp and 400 Nm of torque, with an additional 20 hp and 200 Nm available from the ISG. It can deliver between 40.4 and 42.2 mpg and emits between 152 and 159 g/km. Every C-Class engine is mated to a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission.
- In the last decade, the C-Class was the highest-volume Mercedes-Benz model? Since the introduction of the still current generation in 2014, over 2.5 million Saloon and Estate models have been sold. All in all, over 10.5 million Mercedes-Benz cars in this category have been delivered to customers since 1982.
- China has been the largest sales market for the C-Class Saloon since 2016. In addition, the USA, Germany and Great Britain have been the largest sales markets for the C-Class Saloon and Estate models in the last ten years. Two out of every three C-Class cars sold in Germany are the Estate variant.
- Both the front and rear passengers benefit from the moderately increased exterior dimensions of the new model generation. Elbow-room has been increased by 22 mm in the front and 15 mm in the rear over the previous model. Headroom in the rear has increased by 13 mm (Estate: 11 mm). Thanks to up to 35 mm more knee-room in the rear, journeys are even more pleasant for passengers in the rear.
- The C-Class has taken another major step forward with respect to digitization and high quality. The interior now has highlights such as the display and operating concept adopted from the new S-Class, with a sporty interpretation. This is accentuated by another design feature: the dashboard and central display are slightly tilted towards the driver.
