So the new #Mercedes? C Class w206 generation, finished in magno selenite grey. I’ll be showing you both the saloon, and the estate both of which launch from the get go on C Class.

This car is the first major step by Mercedes towards electrification, more in my opinion than the EQ series of cars. It’s the first classic model series by Mercedes to be 100% electrified in some manner, with ever car featuring a basic hybrid set up in the minimum, and then the full plug in hybrid models. Read the press release, and the words sustainable, climate, future, eco, electrification are littered throughout the release, honestly made me feel a little dirty by the end of it. So as far as any future bans on pure ICE cars go, the C is ready. It’s also a completely 4 cylinder family, yes including the upcoming AMGs! :(

So let’s first unpack the whole of the design, first the exterior of both the sedan and wagon, then the changes inside! Then we will check out the engines and plug in hybrid tech, as every new C Class is hybridized in some way, meaning they run on a 48v system plus ISG throughout all the petrol and diesel models.  (As we’ve seen int he 53 AMGs)
