The facelift of one of the carmaker’s best selling models in history is priced in Europe starting from 48,070 Euros for the entry-level C200.
The C200 is the first car in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup to get the EQ Boost mild-hybrid combo made of a regular combustion engine and a 48-volt onboard network with a belt-driven starter-alternator.
The system is supposed to assist the engine with an additional 14 hp in the time it takes for the turbocharger to build its maximum pressure. A gliding mode with the engine switched off is also possible thanks to the EQ Boost system.
The same C200, this time in the 4MATIC configuration, will retail for a bit more, 50,450 euros ($61,700). The only diesel in the range, the C220d, will sell starting from 50,807 euros (62,100). It offers an engine with a smaller displacement than its predecessor, but packs an additional 24 hp, bringing the total output to 194 hp.
For the first time on the series, the new C-Class comes with Multibeam LED headlamps with Ultra Range high beam and, optionally, a fully digitized instrument display.
“The new C-Class embodies sportiness in connection with emotion and intelligence,” said the carmaker in a statement.
“In addition, the new C-Class offers the latest in active safety through the use of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems with cooperative support from the driver.”
