2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class New Features
Anytime a Mercedes-Benz model gets a redesign, it’s going to make some waves within the automotive industry. When it’s a model as prolific as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it has the potential to compete for some major automotive awards. As one of the most popular models in the lineup, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is fast, elegant, and one of the most appealing sports luxury cars available. While the 2015 model maintains the C-Class persona, there are several changes that come with the redesign. We’ll explain some of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class new features so you have a better idea what to expect from the next-generation model.
For the 2015 model year, the first C-Class model, the C300 4Matic, gets fitted with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that generates 235 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The more performance-focused C400 hosts a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that muscles out 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Both engines pair to a seven-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class also went through a slight growth spurt for the new model year. As the Mercedes-Benz CLA now carries the responsibility of being the entry-level model, Mercedes-Benz had room to let the C-Class grow. And grow it did. The wheelbase is 3 inches longer and the C-Class itself is almost 3.7-inches longer. Not to mention it’s also 1.6 inches wider. Those bigger dimensions add to the passenger and cargo space of the C-Class, making it more versatile and family-friendly.
While it grew, it also lost weight, as news from Mercedes-Benz is that the 2015 C-Class is 220 pounds lighter than the the outgoing model. Thanks to a body and chassis that are about 50 percent aluminum, you can expect a slight bump in fuel economy as well.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will arrive at Loeber Motors this fall and we can’t wait to see what Mercedes-Benz has done with this already well-received vehicle. In the meantime, check out the 2014 C-Class models and read about how the 2014 and 2015 models compare.
