2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan

Mercedes has been overhauling its entire lineup of cars over the last few years, with a new family design-language, the last (but not least) car to receive the new look and a completely new design is the all-new 2015 C-Class.

The C-Class sedan has been the bread and butter car for Mercedes, so it was important to make it right, and it also needs to compete with the likes of the BMW 3-Series and Audi A4.  I think Mercedes has done a great job with the 2015 C-Class, it looks great and looks like a shrunken version of its big brother, the S-Class.  I also really like the short front overhang, very BMW-esque.

The new C-Class has grown in size, yet weighs less and is more fuel efficient than its predecessor.  The car is 3.7” longer (184” overall length), 1.6” wider (71.3” wide), and has a 3” longer (112” long) wheelbase than the car it replaces.  The new C-Class weighs up to 220 pounds less than the previous generation car, thanks to lightweight materials like aluminum usage in the body and chassis.  According to Mercedes, the new C-Class is up to 20% more fuel efficient than its processor.

When the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is launched in the US, early 2014, it’ll come with 2 engine options:  a 2.0 liter turbocharged direct injection 4-cylinder engine producing 235 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, in the C300 4MATIC, and a 3.0 liter turbocharged direct injection 6-cylinder engine producing 329 HP and 354 lb-ft of torque, in the C400 4MATIC.

In Europe, the C-Class will be launched with three engines: C220 BlueTEC diesel, C180 and C200 gasoline versions.  The C220 BlueTEC is powered by a 2.1 liter diesel engine producing 168 HP and has a 58.8 mpg rating.  The C180 is powered by a 1.6 liter gasoline engine producing 154 HP and it gets 47 miles per gallon.  The C200 is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine producing 181 HP and averaging 44.4 mpg.

After the initial release, there will be many more engine choices available and of course the AMG versions and the coupe and maybe even a convertible C-Class.

The new C-Class also benefits from an all-new interior, I haven’t been a fan of most of the Mercedes interiors over the last decade or so, but the new wave of cars come with much improved interiors.  And the new C-Class’ interior is no exception, it looks pretty nice and is more like the CLA’s interior than the S-Class but it’s still way better looking than the previous generation C-Class.  The center console is very “button-free”, which I personally like but many of the “older gentlemen” seem not to prefer.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is available for ordering in Germany, with a starting price of $46,000 for the C180 diesel base model.  Mercedes hasn’t announced US pricing yet.
