Mercedes-Benz C-Class gets mildly tweaked for 2018

Mercedes-Benz C-Class gets mildly tweaked for 2018

Against all skeptics, Mercedes-Maybach became an impressive success - mostly in China and the US.

The Mercedes-AMG G63 will arrive in Australia later this year. In this scenario, rolling out the BS-VI emission compliant S-Class facelift will give Mercedes-Benz an edge over its rivals like BMW and Audi.

Acceleration will cause increased heart beats with AMG estimating a 0-100kmph time of 4.4 seconds which is a full second quicker than the previous model and will go on to hit a top speed of nearly 240 kmph.

The fuel-saving cylinder deactivation system, nine-speed, twin-clutch SPEEDSHIFT transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel drive system have all been developed or optimized by AMG.

Exact specifications and prices for the United Kingdom have not been confirmed, but it's expected that customer deliveries will start in the summer.

Prices are yet to be revealed, but the current version starts from $235,410. However, the C330e's turbo 2.0-litre engine is claimed to deliver 208bhp and the C300de's turbo 2.0-litre engine 191bhp. We'd told you earlier that the company is looking to launch the auto in the first half of 2018 and well, the company announced that the S-Class facelift will be launched on February 26, 2018.

There are some notable differences from the coupe though too. Some praised the major overall improvement over the outgoing model, but others were not thrilled by the design that pretty much copies the larger CLS-Class.

The C-Class features a range of new infotainment and connectivity, along with fresh engines, but it stays on the same platform as before, so the car's styling gets a subtle evolution instead of any major changes. Buyers can now opt for the 10.25-inch COMAND display screen, along with the 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster.

Clever design touches include dash-top speakers that mirror the car's trademark bonnet-mounted indicators and the iconic passenger grab-handle in its rightful place.

Now, the German vehicle manufacturer has released the specifications and details about the range-topping AMG-tuned G 63 model.

Following the tweet, Mercedes-Benz USA also joined the party adding a its own official images, though full-body camouflage keeps most of the finer details at bay.

Also available are electrically-adjustable heated seats that feature a massage function and climate-control, as well as an "AMG Performance" steering wheel finished in nappa leather.
