2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Mercedes-Benz is dealing with an update for its C-Class. The upgrade is to freshen things as the C-Class reaches the midway point in its life cycle. Remember, the car was introduced for the 2015 model year, so in Mercedes tradition we must see the upgraded model presented for the 2019 model year.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Design
A variety of models have actually been spotted and reveal that there will be small tweaks made to the exterior style of the small sedan. Search for brand-new bumpers and changes made to the internals of the lights. One of the earlier prototypes had headlights that more closely resembled the systems on the current E-Class. Inside, there’s a new touchpad controller in the center console that replaces the rotary dial currently found in most Mercedes models. The style of the guiding wheel is also new and features many controls.
An analog instrument cluster stays, though we’ve seen a C-Class fitted with the digital instrument cluster from the E-Class and S-Class models. It’s possible the instrument cluster in the upgraded C-Class will make the switch to digital, or perhaps it will be used as a choice like Audi makes with its own digital instrument cluster for entry-level models. We’ll remind you that the Cabriolet version of the reviewed C-Class has also been spotted testing. As you can envision, the models feature the same amount of camouflage, regardless of their roofing system type.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Engine
In the powertrain department, the updated C-Class is most likely to adopt Mercedes’ next-generation engines. The new engines debut in the 2018 S-Class and feature various performance enhancements consisting of a single electric motor to change the starter motor and generator as well as offer a performance boost. The new engines likewise feature a modular design, with the 6-cylinder systems moving to an inline style instead of the present V-6 design utilized by Mercedes.
