After it was presented in 2014 as 2015 model, Mercedes-Benz C-Class is ready for a redesign. It will now go through a mid-cycle refresh and will appear on the market as 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class model. There will be will some significant changes considering its exterior, and upgrades inside the cabin as well. We will also see a wide range of engine options under the hood and perhaps new technology.
What might be its biggest flaw is that there probably won`t be manual gearbox offered as before. As well, a bit crowded rear seat room and not sufficient cargo space could also be the major dislikes.
However, generally the new Mercedes is going to be nice-looking vehicle with great handling and good performance.
The major rivals of the new C-Class model will be Acura TLX and Infiniti Q50.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class types of engines and horsepower
When it comes to the engine department, there probably won`t be any significant changes. 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will continue with 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder engine options, the same transmission and drivetrain as the current model.
The base engine is supposed to be a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged. This unit will be able to make 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox and the power will be sent to rear wheels. However, all-wheel drive system will be available too. This unit has the maximum speed of 155 mph, and it reaches 60 mph in 6 seconds. As for the fuel efficiency, it gets 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
The second option will be a 3.0-liter V-6. This engine will develop 362 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. It will be quicker than the previous one for around 1.4 seconds. This unit is rated at 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
The next option is a 4.0-liter V-8 twin-turbocharged powertrain. It has the output of 469 horses and 479 pound-feet of torque. This engine can reach 60 mph in just 4 seconds which is great. The estimated fuel economy of this one is 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
However, the top trim level will use the same 4.0-liter V-8 unit which will be even more powerful. It will produce even 503 hp and 516 pound-feet of torque.
Design of exterior and interior
Speaking of the exterior design, 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will appear with several cosmetic changes. On the front we will see new LED headlamps which will feature eight LED projectors. We can say with no doubt that they are very similar to the ones on Acura headlamps. As well, we will probably see the new bumpers.
Furthermore, speaking of the interior, there will be a new touchpad controller in the center of the dashboard. The steering wheel should be redesign too and will feature many controls. Of course, we can expect the premium materials in its design and latest technology as always.
Release date and price of 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
It is still not confirmed when 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will hit the market. We believe that it might be sometime during 2018. As for the price, it should be slightly higher than the price of the current model which starts at roughly $ 40,000.
