The version in which they rode is the C 220 BlueTec, which sports the same 2.1-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder from the current generation, albeit with about 20 percent better fuel consumption and better performance thanks to a much lower weight.
They seemed to be most impressed by the new technological features though, with stuff like the new touch-screen Comand controller that supports two-finger swipes like on a tablet and the Airmatic-based Agility Control system, which has five settings – Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Custom.
The new NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) levels are purportedly on a totally new level compared with the current model, with the oil-burner murmur under the hood of the test car being vaguely audible in the cockpit.
We're expecting more details about the new C-Class in the following days, but you can already color us excited about it.
