C-Class act

Herald Sun - Motoring - - News -

MERCEDES-BENZ has re­leased fur­ther de­tails of the 2011 C-Class Es­tate. Mercedes calls the ‘‘new’’ C-Class, due here mid-year, a ‘‘com­pre­hen­sive mod­erni­sa­tion’’, with re­designed front and rear, up­graded dash and in­te­rior ma­te­ri­als. It claims a 31 per cent re­duc­tion in fuel con­sump­tion thanks to an en­hanced sev­en­speed auto trans­mis­sion and Eco start/stop func­tion. It also has 10 new driver aid sys­tems. More than 2000 new com­po­nents are in place. Vis­i­bly, though, the changes are hardly dra­matic, al­though some mod­els have a new alu­minium bon­net.
