BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Tuesday September 2, 2014 – The Mercedes-Benz C-Class was first introduced to the world in 1993. Twenty-one years later the fourth and latest generation of the C-Class – the W205 – has been released at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show to rave reviews.
Car and Driver opined – “Consider the C-class as all that Mercedes knows about full-size luxury, distilled into a smaller package. Its handsome lines are inspired by its upscale sibling, the S-class, with an interior that continues the theme.”
The new C-Class is a trailblazer in its segment with a unique mix of modern design and countless pioneering highlights, such as the LED Intelligent Light System1 including “Coming Home” function. The comfortably sporty driving sensation and the high-quality interior with innovative assistance systems from Mercedes Benz Intelligent Drive set new standards.
Top Gear wrote that “The new (C-Class) is styled more elegantly, but feels aimed less at hooning about and more at proceeding in great comfort, safety and refinement. Tech includes optional adaptively damped air suspension, a first among its rivals.” Like other reviewers they said “It feels like a smaller Merc S-Class, and that’s a very good thing.
Designed with individuality in mind, the new C-Class takes style to the next level. High quality materials carefully fitted throughout, create an inspiring atmosphere while advanced technology provides a truly up-to-date edge: there’s the intuitive touchpad which controls the new central screen, or the optional
“The swish new cabin design is as much of a step ahead as the exterior look. Seats are great too, and space improved. Whatever number of the vast gadgetry options-list you’ve ticked, a screen guides you through it all in a series of slick animations. It’s easy to use too, with a quadruple-redundant layout of a big control wheel, shortcut keys, voice activation and a new touchpad.” – Top Gear

While the C-Class is designed to appeal, it’s equally constructed to keep you and yours safe. Collision Prevention Assist Plus can help prevent an accident by warning if the distance to the car in front suddenly decreases, increases the brake force if required, or initiates the brakes if there is no driver reaction. The new C-Class also reminds you to take a break if a relaxed mind threatens to become a tired one. Wipers are automatically switched on at the first drops of rain, and automatic parking offers new levels of comfort and safety on the Sport or AMG Line as standard. To put it simply, the C-Class takes over where it’s pertinent, so
you can focus on what matters most: a thoroughly safe and enjoyable journey.
