With the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA now providing entrée to the brand in the compact premium segment—and helping M-B achieve record sales in November—the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class moves out of “entry lux” territory and will feature just about the entire Mercedes content list when it arrives in dealerships next year. On the other hand, thanks to increased use of aluminum throughout the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the new car is significantly lighter than the one it replaces, with corresponding improvements to both driving dynamics and fuel efficiency.
Drivers also can expect plenty of fresh technologies in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, with segment-firsts like:
- Air suspension
- GPS-enabled climate control
- Next-generation multimedia features
- Driver-assistance systems, including most of those introduced in the all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and E-Class
"Mercedes at its best—that's the new C-Class, which sets new standards for the mid-range segment on many fronts," according to Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber, member of Daimler AG’s Board of Management for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz cars Development. "It is characterized by an emotional yet clear design which is continued in the high-quality and modern interior. Its efficient and high-performance engineering provides the basis for a high standard of driving enjoyment."
Now, keeping in mind that details could certainly change before the car reaches the United States, let’s check out some of the preliminary highlights of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
