What's New for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

The most significant upgrade on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class compared to the 2017 version is the transmission. The new Mercedes C-Class has been drastically upgraded with a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission. This is a significant upgrade from the previous 7 speed automatic transmissions. The new transmission will give the vehicle a smoother ride for an overall more enjoyable driving experience, which is something we have come to expect from Mercedes. This price increase is easily ignored however, because features that were once optional and had to be paid extra for now come standard with the C-Class. The sunroof is now standard on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Heated steering wheels are also available but are optional and it will cost extra for this feature. The engine will remain the same, but you won't see anybody complaining any time soon about the performance of Mercedes' 2.0 liter inline 4 cylinder turbocharged engines. The DYNAMIC SELECT drive performance adjustment will also be available on the new C-Class. With DYNAMIC SELECT, you can switch from driving in SPORT mode or ECO mode. This feature was available on previous models but is worth mentioning because of how convenient it is.

Trim Choices

The only new features on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class are the dynamic sunroof and the upgraded transmission. The trim options are expected to remain the same. There are three options with the Mercedes Benz C Class; these include the standard Mercedes Benz C Class, the the four wheel drive Mercedes Benz C Class 4MATIC® sedan, and the C 350e Plugin-Hybrid Sedan. The only differences between the three are that the 4MATIC® is four-wheel drive, and that the C 350e Plugin-Hybrid Sedan is a hybrid. All of the other features and styling remain the same. Mercedes has also added the AMG® series to the C-Class. If you are not already familiar with Mercedes AMG® it is their racing division and has gained a reputation as one of the best performance car divisions in the world. The AMG® is then classified into 3 models, these are: the AMG® C 43, the AMG® C 63, and the AMG® C 63S. Each of the AMG® models come with different trims, with the styling of the exterior and interior getting progressively more sporty and luxurious as you go from the AMG® C 43 to the AMG® C 63S.
