South African pricing for the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been revealed, with model listings now available on the local Mercedes-Benz website.
South African pricing for the C200 starts at R856,080 – while the C220d starts at R911,740.
This follows the international launch of the sedan in February 2021.
The new C-Class has a dynamic stance thanks to the combination of short overhangs and a long wheelbase.
For the design of this vehicle, the designers have kept lines to a minimum.
From the sides, the surfaces create unique light effects and 17-to-19-inch wheels add to the sporty design.
Up front the signature radiator grille with a central star and louvres are fitted to all variants, and the bonnet features power domes.
The new C-Class is also equipped with the newest infotainment system that Mercedes has to offer – the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX).
It features a more capable voice assistant that responds to “Hey Mercedes”, which lets you control vehicle functions such as calls and assistance features.
The MBUX system also offers a smart home function, which lets your vehicle become a mobile control centre from where you can find out if someone is at home, turn appliances and lights on and off, and monitor your property.
Under the bonnet sits an engine range that will only be offered in 4-cylinder configurations.
Both the diesel and petrol engines also have integrated starter-generators (ISG) for intelligent assistance at low engine speeds.
“The ISG uses a 48 volt on-board electrical system that ensures functions such as gliding, boosting, or energy recovery, and makes significant fuel savings possible,” said Mercedes.
The diesel variants are the first of its kind with an integrated starter-generator.
An energy recovery function and the ability to “glide” makes the engine more efficient, and a maximum output of 195kW – with an additional 15kW from the EQ Boost system – is available.
