August arrival for new C-Class

Mercedes-Benz New Zealand Ltd has announced pricing and specification for the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class (model designation W 205) which will be available from dealerships on August 23rd.

The new C-Class sedan will initially be launched with five variants into the New Zealand market boasting equipment tailored directly to core customer’s desire.

The C 200 (petrol) is not only the most popular C-Class model, but the most popular model of the entire Mercedes-Benz range. The new model in New Zealand receives equipment and performance enhancements to meet customer desires.

These include LED headlamps, 18” alloy wheels, collision prevention assist plus, electric seats and blind spot assist are matched to a 0-100km/h time that rivals the outgoing C 250. Its diesel sibling, the C 200 BlueTEC (diesel), is set to become one of the most fuel efficient vehicles in the Mercedes-Benz portfolio.

Other standard features for both the C 200 and C 200 BlueTEC include, Garmin Map Pilot satellite navigation, ambient interior lighting throughout the cabin (3 different colour modes), power operated park brake, keyless start function, active parking assist, reversing camera and agility Select with five driving modes just to name a few.

Both the C 250 (petrol) and C 250 BlueTEC (diesel) not only increase standard equipment levels over the outgoing C-Class, but introduce technology yet to be seen in this segment of the market says Mercedes-Benz.

The new C 250 variants will arrive with the full driver assistance package plus most recently seen in the latest S-Class, including steer assist. Other standard features include keyless-go with hands-free access, leather upholstery and stunning 19” alloy wheels are all part of the outstanding value equation.

The economy hero of the range will not doubt be the C 300 BlueTEC Hybrid, combined fuel efficiency estimated to be as low as 3.6L/100kms and with equipment equal to the C 250 models.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class range is now available to order.
