The 2018 Mercedes C-Class features a number of design and equipment updates. The main exterior changes are the new headlamps and tail lamps with clear-lined contours and the redesigned front bumper featuring either a silver trim strip, a chrome-plated trim strip or a three-part chrome trim strip. Moreover, Multibeam LED headlamps featuring 84 individually controllable LEDs have made it to the mid-size saloon with the facelift.
Mercedes-Benz has enhanced the interior with the introduction of a 12.3-inch HD virtual instrument cluster with three individually selectable styles, a 10.25-inch central display, redesigned steering wheel with touch-sensitive controls, haptic feedback for the infotainment system’s touchpad controller and Energizing comfort control.
