The new appearance of the C-Class is defined in particular by its front exterior and the design of the headlamps and rear lights.
In the new version, the AMG-Line features the diamond radiator grille as standard. The front bumper has been redesigned for all lines. These new designs make the Exclusive exterior even more expressive and give the exterior of the Avantgarde a more dynamic character. The front bumper features a chrome trim strip (in combination with the Avantgarde exterior) or a chrome three-piece strip (exclusive exterior). Together with the AMG Line Exterior, the vehicle boasts an AMG front apron with a new geometry and the rear diffuser insert features a new design. The rear bumper of the sedan has a new lower section; the geometry, finish and finish of the exhaust pipe vary according to the selected engine variant and equipment.
The design of the front and rear lights is defined by sharp outlines. Intricately crafted details add highlights and emphasize the modern character. The C-Class comes with high performance LED headlights with a particularly purist interior design. For the first time in this series of models, Multibeam LED headlamps with ultra light beam are available (see below for details).
The color spectrum was magnified by the addition of metallic Mojave silver and emerald green metallic.
The sporty interior emanates class, presenting fluid forms in a new interpretation of modern luxury.
The center console is characterized by an elegant finish. It is available in open chestnut wood or anthracite oak with open pores. The real 3D wood veneer on the center console combines a handcrafted character with a modern twist. Magma Gray / Black are new interiors in addition to brown for the AMG Line Interior.
The starting function of the Keyless-Go is standard. The start / stop button comes with a new turbine design. The vehicle key also features a new design. Customers have the choice of three variants: black with high-gloss chrome surround, white with chrome surround or bright white with matt chrome finish.
The Multicontour Seat package is new. With this package, the side supports and the lumbar support can be individually adjusted by means of an electrically driven pneumatic pump. A massage effect on the lumbar region is provided by air chambers that are inflated and deflated in a pulsating or undulatory movement when the function is activated. The pneumatic functions of the bank are operated through the multimedia system.
Class C adopts the current Class S display concept with an optional all-digital instrument display offering the three different display styles: Classic, Sport and Progressive.
The basic model has a classic two-pipe instrument panel. Between the tubes there is a colored display of 5.5 inches (resolution: 383 x 600 pixels). The display style here is & # 39; Classic.
The all-digital instrument display is available as an option. The screen has a diagonal of 12.3 inches and offers high resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels. The next-generation screen design offers three very different display styles: "Classic," "Sport," and "Progressive." Styles can be changed quickly according to personal tastes or to fit the selected interior. Together with certain menu items such as trip data or consumption numbers, the driver can now additionally display the data of the navigation display or the ECO display on the instrument panel. The latter supports the driver in adopting a style of driving with low fuel consumption.
The multimedia screen above the center console is also available in two sizes. In combination with the Audio 20, it has a diagonal screen of seven inches and a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. Here too, the display style is & # 39; Classic & # 39 ;.
In conjunction with the Audio 20, a high-resolution 16: 9 center display is available for the first time with a screen diagonal of 10.25 inches and a resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels (standard in conjunction with the Comand system optional). As with the dashboard, a choice of three display styles is also available here. The state of the art presentation mode allows the displayed information to be captured intuitively, with clear and informative graphics accompanying the text information in the Vehicle menu item, for example.
