Mercedes has revealed the price and specifications for the new C Class Saloon, which is expected to hit the UK markets in June this year. The model will be offered in price ranges between £26,855 and £34,355 depending on the variants you choose.
The new and improved saloon will be available in two engine variants: a four cylinders 1991cc petrol C 200 engine generating 184bhp and an even stronger 2143cc diesel C 220 BlueTec capable of delivering 175bhp and 295lb-ft of torque. Splendid engine capacity can be integrated with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission to deliver performance at its best. Although the suspension has not yet been confirmed, if C Class comes with a four-wheel drive suspension, it can pose serious competition to the BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4.
The new model not only has a stronger engine but is also efficient in fuel economy. 100kg lighter 2014 C-Class accompanied with efficient aerodynamics has improved the economy figures by almost 20% compared to its predecessor. The fuel economy ranges between 70 to 74mpg depending on the engine variants you select. You can opt for a base trim level or The Sport trim level, which includes 17-inch alloy wheels, satellite navigation, chrome trim exterior, and lowered suspension to enhance driving comfort.
You can always choose the higher AMG Line range which gives you 18-inch AMW wheels, an AMG body kit, Sports Suspension and an Artico finish on the dashboard.
The all-new C Class Saloon gives reduced CO2 Emissions and emits only 103g/km with a diesel engine and 123g/km while running on a C200 petrol engine.
