Kuala Lumpur. Following the successful launch of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia today introduces the new locally-assembled C-Class. Proudly assembled in the brand’s production facility in Pekan Pahang, the C-Class continues to stand for a more digital and efficient world, and in all respects creates a future-proof comfort zone in a time of worldwide transformation.

Sagree Sardien, CEO & President, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia said, “The C-Class has been our bestselling model to date. Since its introduction as the 190, over 10.5 million Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been delivered globally and we are confident this new localized C-Class will be well-accepted by our customers. As part of our continuous commitment to the local market in the luxury automotive sector, the C-Class which debuted earlier this year, is now proudly assembled in our production facility, in Pekan and will further cater to the individual requirements of our esteemed customers. We are excited and confident to continue the success story of our bestselling model in Malaysia.”

Michael Jopp, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia said, “Our customers have always loved the C-Class, because it has always been top with regard to comfort and technology as well as to spaciousness and design. These two new additions to our local production line are testament of our commitment to further expand our local foothold and increased investment in the local automotive sector. The C-Class is truly one-of-a-kind.”

Exterior highlights

The C-Class has never been in a better shape: modernized all round and enhanced with sporty design elements, thanks to the combination of short front overhang, long wheelbase and rear overhang. The interior adopts highlights from the new S-Class, adding a sporty touch.

The brand’s hallmark radiator grille characterizes the front. All models feature a central star, with the design and character of the radiator grille differing in the details. The C 200 is equipped with Avantgarde line exterior. The highlights include in particular the radiator grille design with central Mercedes star as well as elegant trim strips in high-sheen aluminium and chrome with lowered comfort suspension and 18-inch 5-spoke wheels.

The distinguishing feature of the C 300 with AMG Line exterior is the Mercedes-Benz pattern grille with the star design in chrome. The expressive body styling of the AMG Line lends the exterior of the C-Class a sporty, exclusive touch along with 19-inch AMG multi spoke wheels. Other key exterior highlights of including panoramic sunroof, LED High Performance headlamps with Adaptive High Beam Assist.

The rear-end design is typical of a Mercedes-Benz sedan. The high-quality design of the tail lamps fascinates with an unmistakable day and night appearance. The lamps for the first time have a two-piece design in the C-Class, with the light functions divided between the side wall and boot lid lamps. Their precisely configured interiors also showcase the standard of particularly high quality in detail with the silver grey diamond-pattern trim.

Interior highlights

The new C-Class brings the innovation leadership of the flagship S-Class to the sport sedan segment. From its lifelike voice assistant to its next-generation driver assists, the vehicle looks after driver and its passengers like never before.

Driver-focus adds to the sportiness: the dashboard and central display are slightly tilted towards the driver by six degrees. It features a high-resolution 12.3” free-standing driver display, setting it apart from traditional cockpits with classic round dials.

The touchscreen appears to float above the expanse of trim. Like the dashboard, the screen is slightly tilted towards the driver. A high-quality chrome insert divides the center console into a rear, padded section for the armrest and a front section in lustrous jet black. The seemingly free-floating central display rises smoothly and seamlessly from this three-dimensional surface.

The vehicle is equipped with the latest generation MBUX (NTG 7) with MBUX Navigation Premium . The driver area features a high-resolution LCD screen. It is free-standing, and appears to float in front of the wing profile and the expanse of trim. This sets the driver display apart from traditional cockpits with classic round dials.

The central display with touch control, which is slightly inclined towards the driver is 11.9 inches. In combination with this, the driver display measures 12.3 inches. The dashboard is divided into an upper and a lower section: into a wing-like section with new, flattened round vents reminiscent of aircraft engine nacelles, and into an opulent expanse of trim.
