Mercedes-Benz is dealing with an upgrade for its C-Class. The update is to refresh things as the C-Class reaches the midway point in its life process. Recall, the car was presented for the 2015 model year, so in Mercedes tradition we must see the upgraded model introduced for the 2019 model year.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Design
A number of models have been spotted and expose that there will be small tweaks made to the exterior design of the small sedan. Look for new bumpers and changes made to the internals of the lights. One of the earlier prototypes had headlights that more closely resembled the units on the latest E-Class. Inside, there’s a new touchpad controller in the center console that replaces the rotary dial currently discovered in most Mercedes models. The style of the guiding wheel is also new and features various controls.
An analog instrument cluster stays, though we’ve seen a C-Class fitted with the digital instrument cluster from the E-Class and S-Class models. It’s possible the instrument cluster in the updated C-Class will make the switch to digital, or possibly it will be offered as an alternative like Audi makes with its own digital instrument cluster for entry-level models. We’ll remind you that the Cabriolet variation of the reviewed C-Class has actually also been spotted screening. As you can picture, the prototypes feature the very same quantity of camouflage, despite their roof type.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Engine
In the powertrain department, the upgraded C-Class is most likely to adopt Mercedes’ next-generation engines. The new engines launching in the 2018 S-Class and feature various efficiency enhancements including a single electrical motor to replace the starter motor and alternator as well as supply a performance increase. The brand-new engines also feature a modular style, with the 6-cylinder systems relocating to an inline design rather of the current V-6 design utilized by Mercedes.
