Get a new feel for the road


The C-Class : Agility and effortless superiority

Grey asphalt may not be one of lifes most inspiring sights, but for over 120 years now, our vehicles have shown that it can give drivers a lot of fun. Reason enough, we thought, to go a step further and offer a new interpretation of driving pleasure. So here it is : the C-Class, a car that allows you to experience the road as never before. Few cars can compete with its ability to adjust so many facets of its character - from the interior to the drive - so quickly and precisely in response to external conditions and your own particular needs. The key to this flexible response is the standard-fitted AGILITY CONTROL package which includes selective damping. Even more sophisticated handling technology is optional available in the form of the new DYNAMIC HANDLING package with special sports mode which allows you to adjust the vehicles handling at the touch of a button. And with a range of thrilling engines to choose from, the C-Class can be specified to match just about any taste. Youll also find that the interior offers noticeably more space - and, thanks to fine materials and a new design - a more distinctive atmosphere. Whether you give it a more sporty feel or put particular emphasis on comfort is entirely up to you. The C-Class comes in several different guises. As you will see, it is the perfect embodiment of the Mercedes-Benz philosophy. Unlike any other.

Your most enjoyable drive ever. Each time you get in


Agility - right down to the last centimetre

The C-Class is a pleasure to behold: its taut lines lend it an air of effortless superiority while the wide radiator grille and distinctive rear section announce a vehicle with real presence and a dynamic personality. But these compelling looks are only the beginning of the story. The C-Class is equipped with many innovative technical features which deliver a driving experience that is unique in this class. Think ease and confident.

Among the highlights is the new AGILITY CONTROL package. This includes the selective damping system which automatically adjusts the suspension set-up in accordance with the condition of the road - giving you a consistently high level of driving enjoyment. As an option, you can specify the DYNAMIC HANDLING package with special sports mode which allows you to choose a particularly sporty suspension response or a distinctly comfortable one at the touch of a button.

The DYNAMIC HANDLING package for the C-Class: choose the driving mode to match your mood

One of the principal innovations in the C-Class, the DYNAMIC HANDLING package with special sports mode is an electronically controlled damping system which constantly adjusts to the driving situation and the condition of the road. This makes for a smoother ride, increases handling safety and, above all, makes the vehicle more agile. Equipped with the DYNAMIC HANDLING package, the C-Class sits 15 millimetres lower than standard and has noticeably more dynamic handling thanks to the modified spring and damper set-up. The package also includes speed-sensitive power steering which has a sportier feel and conveys an even greater sense of control. Although the different elements are under fully automatic control, it is possible to intervene manually: by pressing a button, you can tell the system whether your preference is for a sporty driving experience or a distinctly comfort-oriented one. With sports mode selected, the system not only adjusts the firmness of the damping, but also sharpens the accelerator response. Assuming, of course, that you are in the mood for it. Otherwise, you can simply choose the comfort mode and enjoy a particularly smooth and comfortable ride.

BlueEFFICIENCY

Another reason why filling stations have to sell newspapers and sandwiches: the C-Class BlueEFFICIENCY
The air resistance of the C-Class BlueEFFICIENCY has been reduced thanks to the carefully calculated adjustment of a number of details. Smooth underbody cladding, for example, allows the airflow to pass under the vehicle with little turbulence. The joints between the bonnet and the headlamps as well as between the bumper and the headlamps have been sealed to provide even better airflow over the front section of the vehicle. All of which means that your C-Class BlueEFFICIENCY uses less fuel and has lower CO2 emissions.

Proficiently efficient: the C-Class BlueEFFICIENCY


The BlueEFFICIENCY measures: the Mercedes-Benz efficiency package. An engineer who wants to save fuel needs one radical idea or a whole raft of small but still very well thought-out - solutions. As in our BlueEFFICIENCY vehicles, for example. In developing these models, our engineers analysed every detail to identify those which could be made to work even efficiently. The numerous measures they developed as a result range from drag reduction and lightweight materials to an intelligent energy management system and an improved, more energy-efficient power steering system. Each of these enhancements reduces fuel consumption. Although only a small amount is saved by each measure individually, their combined impact is remarkable: the combination of the Mercedes-Benz BlueEFFICIENCY package and our efficient engines cuts fuel consumption - and with it CO2 emissions - by up to 23%. So as well as getting you to your destination, our BlueEFFICIENCY models help to move environmental protection forward, too.

Why long trips are going to seem much too short from now on
Your very own comfort zone: the spacious interior of the C-Class

With its soft materials, fine trim elements and more space than ever, the interior of the C-Class is particularly inviting. The position of the drivers seat has been raised slightly and shoulder and elbow room increased. The rear passengers will also quickly feel at home thanks to their increased legroom. The newly developed front seats are equipped with a lumbar support for the driver and are electrically adjustable for cushion height and backrest inclination. These settings and others, such as the steering wheel position, head-restraint height and exterior mirror position, can be stored by means of the memory package. Your personal settings are recalled as soon as you settle into the drivers seat and insert the ignition key. You will find that the C-Class also offers plenty of space if you ever need to transport objects rather than passengers.

Youve worked hard enough. Now its our turn


Stress-relieving comfort in the C-Class

A driving environment which allows you to concentrate on the task in hand is not just a luxury, it is also a major safety feature. It all starts with the well-designed drivers area: the new dashboard is horizontally structured and positioned higher than in the predecessor model. The three-tube instrument cluster is situated in the drivers immediate field of vision and provides information about key operating parameters. Depending on the equipment version, you can use the buttons on the multifunction steering wheel to control various comfort features while keeping both hands on the steering wheel. A comfortable travelling environment comes courtesy of the THERMATIC two-zone automatic climate control which is fitted as standard in the new C-Class.

PRO-SAFETM

A theory which can save lives in practice


PRO-SAFETM: the integral safety concept from Mercedes-Benz

If there is one area more than any other that drives us to ever greater achievements, it is researching new safety technologies. As early as the 1950s, we passed an important safety milestone when legendary vehicle safety pioneer Bla Barnyi invented the passenger safety cell. This era also saw revolutionary ideas put forward by many others - such as Rolf Maier. In order to be able to study the crash performance of steering and restraint systems quickly and costeffectively, Rolf Maier and his engineer colleagues designed and built a special sled which was to be driven into a wall at high speed. When they needed to create a crumple zone, the team came up with a simple, yet brilliant solution: gherkin tins from the staff restaurant - a typical example of the creative spirit which characterised this pioneering time. As much as we like to reflect on the past, though, our focus has always been firmly on the future.

The best example is our vision of accident-free driving which is closer today than ever before thanks to PRO-SAFETM. This integral safety concept from Mercedes-Benz divides automative safety into four phases. During the journey, the vehicle helps the driver to identify critical situations promptly and handle them safely. In the second phase, just before a potential accident, numerous preventive measures can be activated to reduce the risk of injury. In the event of an accident, the occupants can benefit from effective, individualised protection provided by the comprehensive range of passive safety systems. Finally, the fourth component comprises the phase after an accident when further measures come into play - to make the task of the rescue services easier, for example.
Additional information about the Mercedes-Benz safety concept is available on the internet at: www.mercedes-benz.com/airbag-brochure.

PRE-SAFE

You should take important decisions yourself. Or leave them to your car
Ready in a fraction of a second: the safety systems

In the event of danger If there is an immediate danger of an accident occuring, the optional PRE-SAFE systems can tension the seat belts, close the side windows and move the seats into a more favourable position (in conjunction with electrically adjustable seats and memory package)

In an accident Standard safety features in the C-Class include, amongst other things, twostage airbags for the driver and front passenger, front sidebags and windowbags which extend across both rows of seats

Where safety is concerned, you can never start too early - in the case of the C-Class, it begins with a particularly ergonomically designed interior, where every switch and every function is easy to operate. Intelligent systems, such as COMAND APS or LINGUATRONIC ensure that you can keep both hands on the steering wheel. When driving you can count on over 60 eletronic support systems. Some are designed to alert you in the event of a problem - the tyre pressure loss warning system, for example. Others are there to provide active assistance, such as the Electronic Stability Program ESP, Brake Assist BAS and, for the first time in the C-Class, ESP trailer stabilisation. The ESP and BAS sensors can detect hazardous driving situations - such as pronounced oversteer or understeer, vigorous steering movements, emergency and panic braking - and can assist the driver accordingly. Theres more. When faced with situations which are typically associated with hazards, the C-Class can initiate preventive measures to protect the occupants - with the optional PRE-SAFE system. This comprises a reversible seat-belt tensioning function, automatic positioning of the front passenger seat (if electrically adjustable and equipped with the memory function) and automatic closure of side windows.

Numerous occupant protection systems can reduce the risk of injury in an accident considerably: in the event of a rear-end collision, for example, sensors cause the standard-fit NECK-PRO head restraints for the driver and front passenger to move forward and upward in a few microseconds in order to support the head at an earlier stage. This reduces the risk of whiplash significantly. The C-Class is also equipped with belt tensioners on the front and outer rear seats as well as a wide range of airbags including two-stage driver and front-passenger airbags and windowbags which cover almost the entire side window area. The C-Class helps to protect other road users, too, with features such as the smooth body surfaces with their extensive, programmed yielding properties. In order to reduce the risk of further damage being caused following an accident and to simplify the task of rescuing the occupants, various different measures are taken automatically depending on the nature and severity of the accident. These include turning off the engine and cutting off the fuel supply, switching on the emergency interior lighting, opening the side windows and unlocking the doors. To complete its holistic safety philosophy, Mercedes-Benz has also published multilingual rescue guidelines (accessible worldwide on the internet) as an additional aid for the emergency services.
