New for 2015 C-Class models, Mercedes-Benz introduces two completely redesigned models, the C300 and C400. Both models will come standard with Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® all-wheel drive technology for the first time. In addition, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class features a new body design, making it both lighter and more aerodynamic than 2014 models. These new enhancement aids in both increased performance as well as fuel economy marks.
In addition, the new C-Class models will be utilizing start/stop engine technology. What start/stop technology does, is when the vehicle comes to a stop (at a red light for instance) the engine actually shuts down automatically to conserve fuel and fires back up when even the slightest pressure is applied to the accelerator. No official fuel economy figures have been released for the C300 and its 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, but we can expect it to perform similarly to the 2014 CLA. The CLA uses the same 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine displacement, and also features start/stop technology where it obtains a 38 highway mpg rating.
Due to the extensive redesign of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, people are now calling it the S-Class’s younger brother, which is a very good thing. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers both more interior cargo and passenger room, which Mercedes-Benz says is to compensate for the growing average height of drivers. Not only will 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drivers benefit with more room to stretch out, they also receive a completely refreshed form of luxury and sport-styling. Available is a class-first automatic air suspension as well as an enormous 8.4-inch tablet style infotainment system. A new controller is also placed inside of the C-Class for a more intuitive driving experience which features a new touch-pad module.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz release date will also give drivers a chance to experience some of the most cutting edge safety features in the industry, including Distronic Plus with Steering Assist. A huge step for a vehicle in this class, the new Distronic Plus system works as adaptive cruise and steering control, limiting the chance of roadside accidents.
