Mercedes-Benz C-Class wins 2019 Fleet News Award for Best Premium Car

7 2019 Mercedes C Class

While the latest C-Class may not look that different to the car that came before it, Mercedes claims there have been more than 6,500 changes.

There is an entirely new line-up of engines, including the brand’s latest 2.0-litre diesel unit that debuted in the E-Class.

It’s more refined and achieves better fuel economy than the C-Class’s previous diesel engine.

A new petrol engine in the C 200 features mild-hybrid technology, a first for the C-Class. The 48v system provides a power boost and enables engine-off coasting to reduce emissions.

Other noticeable enhancements include a new, larger, infotainment screen, digital instruments and revised switchgear.

The model range is organised into SE, Sport and AMG Line trims, with key options combined in handy packs to simplify ordering.

The changes make the new C-Class more luxurious and more efficient than ever before, cementing its place at the top of this segment.

Finalists: Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Jaguar XE, Lexus IS, Volkswagen Arteon

Award sponsored by Ogilvie Fleet
