The 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Series remains the most well-known luxury models on the market for good reasons. The past few years have seen Mercedes-Benz product architects systematically introduce luxurious brands.
However out of the brands released by the company, the C-Class was exceptional as it managed to transform itself into a force to reckon with and compete with the famous 2005 C-Class.
The 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Series remains the most well-known luxury models on the market for good reasons.
Every C-Series vehicle right now boasts an elegant, well equipped, high performance characteristic.
The global car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz is of the view that this brand is designed for drivers that do not want to accept compromises because it delivers across the board. This class consists of fast, agile vehicles with excellent acceleration.
Each model is fully equipped with safety features available on the market and even the most basic vehicle is loaded with features to improve the driver’s comfort.
A makeover a couple of years back improved its looks but it did not appeal to some sections of the Zimbabwean market as the E-Class version remained popular especially with Government officials.
The 2015 C-Class however has represented the best look and has also addressed previous shortcomings raised within the market coming up with technology that suits the demands of the market.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is slightly larger, more luxurious, and more beautiful than ever before, ushering in a new era of design and equipment for the brand’s mainstream luxury sedan.
From the look and feel to the dynamics and technology, the C-Class makes a strong argument for a position as class leader, making strides into the territory once dominated by other rival luxury brands. The most attractive element on the 2015 C-Class is its exterior design.
Large round vents, a flowing centre console, and inlaid metallic look panels in the door all speak a design language reserved only for expensive cars.
The 2015 C-Class was launched in August 2014 in two forms, both coming with standard 4Matic all wheel drive, the C300 and C400.
Its small designation denotes a turbocharged 2,0 litre four-cylinder engine rated at 241 horsepower and 273 pound feet of torque. The larger C400 gets a twin turbocharged V6 engine good for 329 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque.
In the first quarter of 2015, a rear drive version of the C300 became available both diesel. In April, 2015, the new Mercedes AMG C63 and C63S joined the 2015 C-Class range, adding huge power figures, impressive handling, and more aggressive style.
With a twin turbocharged 4,0 liter V8 engine rated at 469 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, the standard C63 is capable of very brisk acceleration and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
The C63S rates 503 horsepower and 516 pound feet of torque, reducing 0-60-mph times to 3,9 seconds, but still limited to 155 mph.
Mercedes said C63 S’s extra power and torque is much more noticeable behind the wheel than the stats would suggest, with palpably more power on demand at any given time or rpm.
The C400 4Matic comes standard with Mercedes’ Airmatic suspension, does not intend to be a sport sedan first and foremost. Instead it is a luxury sedan with ample power and a planted, stable ride.
Between the two non-AMG models, the C300 remains most people’s preference and it is already making waves in the Sub-Saharan market.
