Mercedes-Benz C 400 4MATIC Coupe, designo hyacinth red metallic, Leather magma grey/black.;Fuel consumption combined: 8.1-7.7 l/100 km; Combined CO2 emissions: 186-176 g/km Mercedes-Benz SA has launched the new edition of its highly successful C-Class range to the local market. This happened recently at an event in Johannesburg’s inner city, celebrating the brand’s strong links to South Africa amidst themes of improvement and renewal.

The C-Class is the most successful model series from Mercedes-Benz, and the new edition boasts a wealth of enhancements. In terms of looks, it features a redesigned front-end, with new look headlamps and tail lamps.

The electronics are completely new, with safety and driver assistance systems now at the level of the flagship S-Class series. There are also new petrol and diesel engines across the range.

The current generation C-Class was the company’s top-selling model, selling more than 415 000 cars worldwide last year. The secret of the C-Class success is partly down to the wide model range, also including two sporty two-door versions: the coupé and the cabriolet, which have opened up entire new audiences in the local market, says Selvin Govender, marketing director of Mercedes-Benz Cars SA.

“South Africans just love the C-Class,” says Govender. “This new model is our sportiest and most dynamic C-Class to date, and with its looks, safety and performance, we are confident it’s going to appeal to a broader audience than ever before.” The new C-Class has a strong South African flavour: it is built at Mercedes-Benz East London plant in the Eastern Cape.
