Mercedes-Benz C-Class gets its new generation. Incorporating many firsts in the history of the model, the C-Series, with the W206 case code, has innovations such as taillights, which are first carried on the tailgate in the rear design, automatic transmission as standard in all engine options, second generation MBUX, optional rear axle steering and heating function in the rear seats. The new C series will come to our country in the last quarter of the year. In the new C-Class, the power units in the range of 170 to 265 HP in the first stage, all four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, have a second generation integrated starter generator (ISG). With the new turbocharger developed with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 team, efficient engines will meet low emission rates.
Change in design
Filling the front view, the brand-specific front grille has a Star centrally positioned on all versions. However, depending on the version, the details of the grill vary. When viewed from the rear, the lines typical of a Mercedes-Benz Sedan car stand out, while the taillights draw attention with their unique day and night appearance. Inside, a high-resolution LCD screen dominates the driver’s cockpit. The screen, which seems to float in the air, makes the cockpit look different from the traditional round display screens. There are two screen sizes available, 10.25 inches (26.0 cm) and 12.3 inches (31.2 cm).
4 cylinder petrol engines
For the first time, the four-cylinder petrol engine (M 254) with a second generation integrated starter generator (ISG) is available in the new C-Class, offering 20 HP additional power and 200 Nm extra torque. With the contribution of functions such as energy recovery and gliding, the gasoline engine reveals a much more efficient structure. Mercedes-Benz brings together all the innovations of the modular engine family consisting of four and six cylinder gasoline and diesel engines for the first time with the M 254. These include NANOSLIDE cylinder liner, CONICSHAPE cylinder honing and exhaust gas purification directly on the engine. The new turbocharger was developed in conjunction with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 team. The transfer of technology to mass production sets completely new standards in terms of performance and efficiency. In the C 300, 27 HP of instant additional power (overboost) can be provided.
