MERCEDES-BENZ has introduced a limited-edition version of its top-selling C-Class that adds a bunch of extra features, but it is only available until the end of May.
The Edition C is based on the entry-level C200 and will be available in sedan guise only.
Pricing is set at $60,900 driveaway, which is a saving over the C200’s usual price of $61,900 before on-road costs.
The Edition C adds an electric sunroof, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, metallic paint and special 19-inch five twin-spoke alloy wheels.
This is on top of the already standard 7.0-inch colour display with touchpad control and media interface, satellite navigation, digital radio, electric front seats, keyless start, Artico upholstery, black piano lacquer and brushed aluminium trim, dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing wipers and LED headlights.
Under the bonnet of the C200 is 135kW/300Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine driving the rear wheels via a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission.
C-Class sales have gone backwards so far this year, with the company recording a 25.6 per cent dip in sales to the end of March compared with the first quarter of 2017.
However, its 1597-unit haul is still well ahead of its competition, with the next biggest seller in the premium mid-size segment its CLA sibling on 941 units.
BMW’s 3 Series is next on 757 followed by the Audi A4 on 334.
Last year its haul of 8549 units made it the best-selling premium model in Australia, and it was also the second best-selling mid-sizer overall behind the Toyota Camry (23,620).
The C-Class mid-life facelift – revealed at this year’s Geneva motor show in sedan and wagon guise before the coupe and cabriolet were uncovered at last month’s New York show – will hit Australian showrooms in August.
