Pre­miere of new Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - SHEPPARTON CAR WEEKLY -

The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class sets new bench­marks in safety and ef­fi­ciency, as well as in com­fort and well­be­ing.

The new C-Class is the first car in its seg­ment with high-tech fea­tures in­clud­ing a chas­sis with air sus­pen­sion and the Stop&Go Pi­lot for par­tially au­ton­o­mous driv­ing.

‘‘With the brand-new C-Class, we are con­tin­u­ing to ac­cel­er­ate our rate of in­no­va­tion,’’ Daim­ler AG board of man­age­ment chair­man and Mercedes-Benz Cars head Dr Di­eter Zetsche said.

‘‘For in­stance, it’s the only car in its seg­ment to enable par­tially au­ton­o­mous driv­ing.

‘‘The in­tel­li­gent ap­pli­ca­tion of light­weight ma­te­ri­als is also ground-break­ing.

‘‘This makes the new model up to 100kg lighter than its pre­de­ces­sor and there­fore also the most ag­ile and ef­fi­cient C-Class ever,’’ Dr Zetsche said.

To­gether with best-in-class aero­dy­nam­ics and new, fu­el­ef­fi­cient en­gines, the new C-Class achieves the best ef­fi­ciency fig­ures in its seg­ment.

‘‘The new model con­sumes up to 20 per cent less fuel than its pre­de­ces­sor,’’ Daim­ler AG board of man­age­ment mem­ber Prof Dr Thomas We­ber said.

When it comes to drive and safety, the new C-Class ben­e­fits from lux­ury class in­no­va­tions and a raft of in­tel­li­gent as­sis­tance sys­tems of­fer­ing the high­est lev­els of safety.

The new C-Class joins the lat­est gen­er­a­tions of the E and S-Class to cre­ate the youngest and most wide-rang­ing sa­loon line-up of any au­tomaker world­wide.
