The current-generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is still at least a year away from receiving asuccessor, so the German carmaker thought about freshening things up a little bit with a new special edition.
Called the “Edition C”, the new package is available with the C-Class Saloon, Estate and Coupé models and consists of added equipment and design enhancements both inside and out.
Edition C models stand out among other regular C-Class models due to their exclusive radiator grille with high-gloss black louvres and chrome trim, plus the smoked headlights. Other exterior features include chromed tailpipes and and “Edition C” badge on the wing.
In the case of the Coupé, there’s also AMG bodystyling for the front apron, side sill panels and rear apron. The Saloon and Estate models can also get the AMG bodykit if they’re specified with the Avantgarde equipment line.
On the inside, the special edition C-Class models get sports seats (the Coupé gets AMG sports seats) in ARTICO leather and DINAMICA microfibre in black with two-tone contrasting topstitching in blue/alpaca grey and a dark aluminium trim with longitudinal grain.
There’s also an 11.4 cm multifunction color display in the instrument cluster, which includes the Attention Assist system. The multifunction three-spoke steering wheel is covered in nappa leather with contrasting topstitching in alpaca grey, as do the gearshift lever and door center panels. The price for the Edition C package in Germany is €1,785 ($2,325), while for the models already featuring the Avantgarde equipment line, the premium is €1,011 ($1,316).
Mercedes also announced the introduction of a new C-Class model, the C 220 CDI 4MATIC. With an output of 170 PS (168hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, the entry-level AWD C-Class is available in either Saloon or Estate guise. The new model also brings updated features including the COMAND Online multimedia system with real-time Live Traffic Information and a new control logic for the optionally available Dynamic Handling package that now offers separate setting options for the suspension (SPORT button) and powertrain (E/S button).
