Mercedes-Benz created their C-Class line of compact executive cars in 1993. Created to replace the Mercedes 190, the C-Class became the smallest model in the brand’s lineup until 1997, when the A-Class was introduced.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class was originally offered as a station wagon and sedan and has been available in varying body styles ever since. The latest generation of the C-Class was introduced at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and was the first car to use a Modular Rear Architecture platform.
This fourth generation of the C-Class includes the 2015 model year, the latest iteration of the compact executive car.
For the 2015 year, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is completely redesigned, restyled, and re-imagined. Featuring the latest in-vehicle technology, luxury interior appointments, and an exterior design inspired by the S-Class, the 2015 C-Class is offered solely as a sedan.
Available in multiple trim levels, the C-Class has a model for varying price points, levels of power, and interior amenity preferences. Thanks to the all new design of the 2015 C-Class, Mercedes is taking over other competitors like BMW’s 3 Series, in nearly all areas of consideration.
The all-new 2015 Mercedes C-Class is a sedan worthy of even the toughest competition.
Stunning, supple, and sublime - these are just three words that come to mind regarding the all-new 2015 C-Class. The new exterior styling was crafted in similar fashion to the S-Class lineup, and the interior showcases a completely new level of luxury.
For the new model year, the C-Class is available with two engine options. The 2015 C300 model comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine, which makes 241 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque.
The 2015 C400 comes standard with an upgraded 3.0-liter twin turbo V6, which achieves an impressive 329 horsepower, and 354 lb.-ft. of torque. Each model is rear-wheel drive and features a seven-speed automatic transmission.
A 4Matic all-wheel drive system is also available. For drivers looking for even more power, the exclusive AMG C63 S sedan features a segment-exclusive 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine, that gets 503 horsepower, and 516 lb.-ft. of torque.
All engine options include brand new high-pressure Direct Injection technology, multispark ignition, and ultralow friction, which allows for increased efficiency and lowered emissions.
The overall styling of the C-Class is new for this model year, featuring lightweight alternatives to bulky steel, decreasing the overall vehicle’s weight by 200 pounds.
The interior boasts an all-new centrally located 7- or 8.4-inch color display, which can be completely controlled by a new touchpad that rests at the driver’s fingertips. Metallic round air vents in the C-Class’s dashboard offer even more new touches for 2015 that are reminiscent of the S-Class its design was based on. Brand new standard features are included in the 2015 C-Class, including Collision Prevention Assist Plus technology, which uses radar to determine the distance and speed of other vehicles on the road.
The convenience of a keyless start system are also included on all C-Class models for 2015. For the first time in C-Class history, Mercedes is offering its advanced full-color Head-Up display as an optional feature, which allows for drivers to keep track of pertinent vehicle information without taking their eyes off the road.
The 2015 Mercedes C-Class may still have the same heart it did before, but the all-new styling, amenities, and engine options, give it the long awaited refresh that it deserved.
The 2015 Mercedes C-Class not only gained new engine offerings and a redesigned exterior, but a whole suite of new in-vehicle technologies. Drivers who value technology and convenience, the C-Class delivers on an entirely new level. Discover the ways that the C-Class incorporates advanced technology for added convenience and practicality.
Every bit of the all-new C-Class is outperforming expectations. The competition can’t stand up to the redesigned sedan, which has been turning heads since it first hit showroom floors. The base 2015 Mercedes C300 sedan beats out tough competitors like the 2015 BMW 3 Series 320i sedan, in nearly every category.
It is clear that Mercedes-Benz puts their drivers first, with the full list of standard amenities, safety features, and ultimately - power.
