In our detailed review article we will deal with one of the most popular 2018-2019 Mercedes from Russian motorists – the third generation of C-Class (sold each year about 3,000 new cars in Russia). We estimate the design of the exterior and interior design from the photo and video materials, convenience and comfort of the cabin. Recall specifications, carry out a test drive, find out the real fuel consumption. The car is well known and loved in the Russian expanses, in the very near future, the model will be phased out, it will be replaced by the new fourth-generation 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class in .
- Let’s start with the external dimensions of the sedan the W204 (wagon W204): 4591 mm (4606 mm) in length, 1770 mm and with external mirrors 2008 mm wide, 1447 mm (1459 mm) in height, 2760 mm wheelbase, 145 mm ground clearance.
- Coupe W207 has a length of 4590 mm, 1770 mm (mirrors 1997 mm) in width, 1406 mm in height, 2760 mm wheelbase of 145 mm and clearance.
The severity of lines, correct proportions of body, family mersedesovsky design – these are the three pillars on which floats a 2018-2019 Mercedes C-class waves of successful global sales. Despite modest for a D-class external dimensions “tseshka” looks solid and presentable. German designers have tried to give the image the maximum similarity of the car with the 2018-2019 Mercedes flagship line – the 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz the S-class W221 . In our opinion, his work automotive artists performed excellently, while awarding “tseshki” many elements from other members of a large family with a three-beam star on the hood.
2018-2019 Mercedes C-Class is offered to the order of execution in four lines: the serial version, Elegance, Avantgarde and Sport package AMG. The production version is somewhat restrained due to a modest round foglights on the body of a powerful bumper fairing and wheels 195/60 R16 or 205/55 R16 on alloy 16-inch wheels in comparison with the other versions, the bumper which is decorated with ribbons of LED daytime running lights and the wheels more large size 225/45 R17 (for the version of the C 63 AMG front axle mounted tires 235/40 R18, while the rear – 255/35 R18).
Let us stop their attention on the more sought-after lines Avantgarde and Elegance performance. The head optics with bi-xenon adaptive cold eyes headlights and LED direction indicators strokes, compact false radiator grille, aerodynamic bumper with additional sections of ducts, hood with proprietary V-shaped vyshtampovki slightly towering above neat wings.
The side of the bodywork sedan and wagon show grace and accuracy of lines, large doorways, barely perceptible dropdown aft roof, the classical solution of the rear trunk to lean in three volume sedan and increased luggage compartment wagon.
Unlike the front and side of the body and feed the sedan C-Class station wagon will not shine brilliance and style. Everything is so simple and trivial, that evokes a feeling of sadness. Not able to adjust to major way, even with LED marker lights and bumpers filled with aerodynamic skirts and diffusers. In short bland and boring look behind the sedan and station wagon.
Dvuhdverka 2018-2019 Mercedes C-Class Coupe for the design laws of the genre, of course, looks much more dynamic, sporty and utilitarian its charismatic fellow with four or five doors. And if the front part of the body from the car are identical, the sides and stern design are fundamentally different.
Profile coupe with reduced roof rack, and front and rear racks are filled up much towards each other to form a harmonious range of the dome. Rapidly rising sill line with nispadayushey aft roof line formed at the confluence of the trim and stylish window for second-row passengers. Frame glasses wearing a chrome decoration. Compact rack fits perfectly into the smooth, soft lines of the body giving the car a more solid and presentable. Making poop C-Class Coupe at the apparent similarity with the back of “tseshki” sedan turned more attractive and organically through some form of marker lamps and bumper.
In general, the appearance of all three cars 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class family is respected, classic design, and thus not aging.
Salon sedan and wagon is designed for comfortable accommodation of the driver and four passengers, the default compartment for four.
Let’s start with the front part of the passenger compartment of a sedan, the versatile C-Class W204 and W207 coupe. The first row even civil armchairs (can be ordered comfort or sports seats with more colorful side support, heated and ventilated) provide a comfortable fit and great support driver and passenger with active cornering, the range of seat adjustments and the steering column is wide, and behind the wheel without problems located the driver even with the growth of more than 190 cm.

In the second series sedan and wagon places without visible stock for three passengers, but with an increase in passengers of 180-185 cm can accommodate a whole comfortable and cozy, but for two seats with a margin. To sit down on the rear seats are comfortable, the downsides of a tunnel is to provide a high floor and a low ceiling coving.
In separate rear compartment is provided two of the passengers comfort, interior space for the width and legroom allow to stay loose, but the ceiling is strong pressure on the crown. Nothing can be done, practicality was never a strong point of the compartment.
It’s nice that the quality of materials, detailing and assembly of interior elements interior to the high level and comparable to the older classes of Mercia.
