2007 Mercedes-Benz C 350 news, pictures, specifications, and information

Safety, comfort, agility: these are the attributes of the new C-Class. The Saloon is a many-faceted product concept which meets the expectations of various customer target groups. With the Avantgarde, Elegance and Classic lines, Mercedes-Benz offers three individual models whose emphasis is on either comfort or agility. All model variants share the latest, state-of-the-art technology. This includes the newly developed Agility Control package wîth situation-responsive shock absorber control, the Intelligent Light System wîth five different lighting functions and the Pre-Safe preventive occupant protection system. There is a choice of four and six-cylinder engines wîth up to 13 percent more output than the preceding model, accompanied by up an to six percent lower fuel consumption.

With a length of 4581 millimetres, the Saloon is 55 millimetres longer than its predecessor. The body width has increased by 42 mm to 1770 millimetres, and the wheelbase by 45 mm to 2760 millimetres. These dimensions create the conditions for a generously sized interior, and therefore more comfort. The front shoulder room has increased by 40 millimetres, for example.

The design of the new C-Class is based on the modern Mercedes idiom, which reflects the technical superiority of automobiles bearing the star wîth taut lines and large, tranquil surfaces. The pronounced wedge-shape of the front end serves to emphasise attributes such as agility and performance. For the first time in a Mercedes salon, the radiator grille is used as a distinguishing feature to position the model variants more clearly. Three extended, horizontal louvres and a big centrally positioned Mercedes star characterise the Avantgarde model as a traditional design feature of sporty Mercedes models. Together wîth the sporty, high-quality appointments, this feature emphasises the youthful, agile appearance of this C-Class. This sporty presence can be enhanced even further wîth the AMG sports package, which includes striking front and rear aprons plus side skirts.

In the Elegance model Mercedes-Benz employs a three-dimensional, louvred radiator grille wîth a high-gloss paint finish to accentuate other brand-typical attributes such as comfort and luxury. The Classic model in the new C-Class is intentionally more restrained and traditional, but offers the same technical innovations as the other two model variants.

This ''product-in-product'' concept enables Mercedes customers to accentuate individual choices, and configure the C-Class to suit their personal taste and lifestyle even more emphatically than before. All the models offer the same, extraordinary driving experience that the Saloon provides by virtue of further technical improvements. Both by its outstanding long-distance comfort and its dynamic handling, the C-Class sets new standards in this market §egmènt.

Agility Control – this is the term used by Mercedes-Benz for all new and further developments that improve both comfort and agility in equal measure. This standard package includes the Agility Control suspension, which controls the shock absorber forces according to the driving situation: when driving normally wîth low shock absorber impulses, the damping forces are automatically reduced for a noticeable improvement in ride comfort – but without any compromise in handling safety. When driving more dynamically, the maximum damping forces are set and the car is effectively stabilised. The Agility Control §teering of the new C-Class has a ratio of 14.5, and is therefore six percent more direct than the §teering of the preceding model. The likewise included Agility Control gearshift reflects the sporty character of the C-Class wîth a short travel and precise shifts.

Mercedes-Benz has also developed the Advanced Agility package wîth a sporty driving mode, which will become optionally available from autumn 2007. This offers the driver a choice of two gearshift programmes: Sport and Comfort. Within these programmes the shock absorber for each wheel has infinitely variable electronic control. A newly developed speed-sensitive §teering wîth a more direct ratio, variable centring and adaptation of the accelerator characteristics and automatic transmission shift points is also included in the package.

Adaptive Brake is another new development in the area of running gear technology. This is based on the technology of the S-Class and provides additional support functions for even more safety and comfort. Examples include Start-Off Assist for uphill gradients, priming the braking system in critical situations and light contact to dry the brake discs in wet conditions.
