Take a quick glance at the exterior of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C300, and you"d be forgiven for not spotting any conspicuous visual changes. Squint, và perhaps you might notice the revised shape of the bumpers, or the way the standard LEDs brighten up the head- and taillights at night. But that"s about it.

The choice lớn keep things similar is intentional, Mercedes says. Customers are happy with how the oto looks, so why mess with success? Instead, Mercedes" focus is khổng lồ bring the 2019 C-Class up to the top of the tech heap, upgrading its electronics architecture khổng lồ accommodate the lathử nghiệm và greatest safety features—with a few extra tricks added for good measure. Indeed, it might not look all that different, but the big khuyễn mãi giảm giá here is that the C-Class is much smarter than before.


All of the intelligent drive sầu features found on the S- và E-Class are now available on the smaller C. Semi-autonomous driving is enhanced by the use of GPS data, automatically adjusting speed for curves & intersections, while upgraded radar & camera systems keep an eye on traffic conditions ahead of và around the oto. Active Lane Change Assist is also included—engage the turn signal while the system is operating, and it"ll change lanes for you, even leaving the turn signal on until the maneuver has been completed. Automatic emergency braking & adaptive sầu cruise control are also on hvà. Even the climate control is now smarter courtesy of GPS, automatically recirculating the air when the car enters a tunnel and reverting to lớn fresh air upon exit.


Inside, the changes are a little more obvious. Buyers can opt for an all-digital cluster that replaces the traditional speevì và tach with a 12.3-inch configurable display. In the center of the console, the "floating screen" is now a little less prominent. Going from a square shape to lớn a squat rectangle makes it feel more harmonious & less of a tacked-on afterthought. It"s bigger now, too, with the standard screen measuring 7.0 inches và the upgraded display clocking in at 10.3 inches. Apple CarPlay & Android Auto are now standard across the board.

A redesigned steering wheel features the thumb pad controllers from the S- & E-Class, as well. Using little swipes, the driver can use the left one to lớn change the info in the instrument cluster, and the right one khổng lồ interact with the center display. Continuing with the tactile theme, the COMAND touchpad now offers haptic feedbaông chồng.


The rest of the interior is a knockout, as it"s been since the C-Class debuted in 2015. My tester wears a domino-inspired scheme, with diamond-quilted Trắng Nappa leather nestled in between swaths of black, part of the optional AMG Line package. And although some might admire the anthracite blaông xã open-pore wood trim, it looks a little too artificial và drab for my tastes. The warmth of the brown walnut wood is a much better complement.

In the 2019 C300—the base tryên ổn for U.S. buyers—a new 2.0 turbo-four makes 14 more horsepower than the old engine, for 255 hp, while torque stays steady at 273 lb-ft. Peak torque now arrives 500 rpm later at 1,800, likely contributing khổng lồ the slight manufacturer-estimated dip in 0-60 to lớn 5.9 seconds from 2018"s 5.8.

Part of the horsepower increase comes from how the new twin-scroll turbocharger gets its twist on. Instead of exhaust gases hitting the turbine all at once, it"s now divvied up into two cylinders at a time, providing a more even và metered flow of air. Think of it lượt thích blowing out candles on your birthday cake: A big heave sầu of breath might have more power behind it, but it"s the controlled exhale that lasts longer.


The result is a happy little mill, delivering a healthy dose of grunt throughout the rev range with only small pockets of turbo lag on occasion. Even in the upper revs, Mercedes" 2.0-liter retains its composure, avoiding the thrash & clatter that befalls other four-cylinders. Only at much higher speeds on the autobahn does the C300 begin to show any kind of strain.


Throw it into a corner, and the C300 quickly reminds you that it"s tuned for comfort, not agility, even with the suspension phối khổng lồ its Thể Thao setting. Of course, if it"s more chutzpah you"re after, Mercedes offers the C-Class in C43 guise. And even though the nine-speed automatic delivers its gear changes in a mostly refined fashion, at times it was a little too eager lớn hold gears after a spirited start. Calm down, C300, I"m just leaving the mall at rush hour.

Speaking of malls, C300 can also notify you if it"s been broken inlớn, or if someone smacks inkhổng lồ it while it"s parked, và can similarly tell you if the vehicle is being towed. Details of the incident are beamed to the Mercedes Me app as well as displayed on the center display during startup. In the event of an impact, this optional system uses the accelerometer and anti-theft sensors to lớn determine where the car was hit & indicates the area on an illustration within the alert. Assistance can be summoned if the damage interferes with driving. It"s also technically possible for the car"s cameras to record the incident, though current privacy laws prevent this part of the feature from being activated.

So although the C300 might not look that much different at first glance, the tech has taken a big leap forward. The 2019 C300 sedan will arrive sầu on dealer lots later this year, joined once again by convertible và coupe versions. Pricing has yet lớn be announced, but expect a slight bump in starting MSRPhường. from the 2018 models. All that new tech comes at a price, after all.
