Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2017 Pricing And Spec Confirmed


Mercedes-Benz Australia has announced sweeping price changes for its C-Class Sedan and Estate ranges, with increases of $500 to $1596 before on-road costs affecting all variants as of this month.

\n

Specifically, the C200 and C250d models have risen by $500, while the C350e petrol-electric hybrid has copped a $600 hike. All Estates continue to cost $2500 more than their Sedan equivalents.

\n

However, AMG variants are impacted the most, with C43 having increased by $711 and $712 for its Sedan and Estate versions respectively, while the biggest change is reserved for the flagship C63 S that jumps by $1596.

\n

Additionally, the C250 and C200d models have now been superseded by C300 and C220d respectively for both body styles, with their replacements costing $500 more.

\n

Along with the change in monikers comes upgraded engines for both variants, with C300 uprating outputs from its predecessor's 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol powerplant to 180kW/370Nm – an increase of 25kW/20Nm.

\n

Meanwhile, C220d welcomes a more significant change, as the 100kW/320Nm 1.6-litre turbo-diesel four-potter from the outgoing C200d has been discontinued along with its seven-speed automatic transmission.

\n

Instead, a 2.1-litre unit that produces 125kW/400Nm sits underneath the bonnet of C220d, while power is sent to the rear wheels via a nine-speed auto.

\n

There are no changes to the powertrains or specification levels of any other model.

\n

Furthermore, buyers of four-cylinder variants – excluding C350e – will be offered the no-cost option of an 'Exclusive Line' package, which the German carmaker says has been popular among E-Class customers.
