Geneva debut for the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Mercedes had launched the current generation of their popular sedan, the W205 C-Class in 2014 and have been working on the facelift for quite some time now. The new C-Class will debut globally at Geneva on 6 March 2018 in both sedan and station-wagon forms.

While it might look as a mere facelift from the outside, with tweaks to the LED DRLs, reworked front and rear bumpers and new alloy wheels, there is a sea of change underneath. The new C-Class gets the latest 48-volt architecture which readies it for the connected and autonomous platforms while also improving the energy efficiency of the powertrains. 

The new C-Class gets the latest multi-beam LED headlamps on the outside while on the inside, you can opt for a fully digital instrument cluster screen like in the S-Class. The touchscreen infotainment system with the touch-digi-pad controller will also be tweaked for better performance. The interiors, as always, will be luxurious and you can expect a wider choice of materials and customisation options from the three-pointed star.

As for the powertrains, this will also mark the debut of the plug-in hybrid C-Class, as the premium sedan readies itself for the future generations. The 2.0-litre petrol and diesel mills that power the existing car will also continue with their presence along with respective automatic gearbox options. In terms of safety, the Mercedes’ safety net of ABS, ESP and airbags will be complemented by the radar-controlled cruise control amongst other driver-aid systems.

The new C-Class will go on sale internationally by mid-2018 and here in India we can expect it to arrive by early 2019 if not by the end of 2018.
