Daimler declassified the updated Mercedes-Benz C-Class on the eve of the Geneva Motor Show , which is due to open in mid-March 2020. In our review of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2019-2020 model year – photos and videos, the price and specifications, the technical characteristics of the most popular to date Mercedes in the world. Having survived the restyled Mercedes-Benz S-Class, it acquired a renewed appearance, a modernized interior with more modern equipment, improved safety systems and a new 9-speed gearbox. The updated Mercedes-Benz C-Class will go on sale in the summer of 2020 at a price of 32,000 euros, which is not much more than the cost of the pre-reform model.
The C-class family is the locomotive of sales of Mercedes-Benz and the real breadwinner of the German concern Daimler. Since entering the market in 2014, as of the end of 2019, more than 167,000 fourth generation Mercedes C-class sedan (W 205), station wagon (S 205) , coupe (C 205) and convertible have been sold worldwide. So, the specialists of the German company very cautiously, literally optically modernized and improved the most popular model, giving it a greater similarity with the top-ranked Mercedes E-class , both in terms of appearance and equipment level.
The body of the updated Mercedes C-Class has changed minimally and got a redesigned front bumper, as if taken from the E-class (in the standard version with a wide mouth of the air intake, with AMG Line versions with compact central and inflated side air intakes), modified headlights and rear headlights. Versions with an additional AMG package received a falshradiator grille from a powerful Mercedes-AMG C 43 with a large Mercedes emblem and a scattering of crystals, as well as an individual rear bumper. Such light strokes of the C-class family have modernized the exterior design of the body, but most of all the head optics and parking lights have changed.
The overall lighting technology is fully LED with a stylish C-shaped insert in each plafone (body sedan) and double pointed ovals (station wagon), headlights are also fully LED MultiBeam (in the base with the upgraded and more efficient high-end driving light Ultra Range, as an option LED, matrix type with 84 individually controlled diodes in each headlight).
As a pleasant addition to the refreshed body, the manufacturer offers several types of alloy wheels with a new design and two entirely new colors for the Mojave Silver Metallic (Mohave silver) and Emerald Green Metallic (emerald green) enamels.
The saloon of the modernized Mercedes-Benz C-class did not change in basic performance, unless, of course, we take into account the new multifunctional steering wheel with wide-spoke wheelbases. However, in a rich set of equipment, the cars sport a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel with a screen resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels (three themes of the Classic, Sport and Progressive screen), an advanced multimedia complex with voice control, integration with smartphones and widescreen 12.25-inch color display, parking assistant Remote Parking Pilot.
As additional options for the renewed Mers C-Class, a modernized front camera and a longer-range radar are available, providing more productive operation of the semi-automatic autopilot Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive (operating at speeds up to 210 kmh), an upgraded navigation system capable of informing the autopilot in advance of the approach to a crossroads or a sharp turn on the road.
