MERCEDES-BENZ has increased pricing of its C-Class mid-size sedan and wagon range by as much as $1596 and included the Exclusive Line package as a no-cost option, while replacing the C250 and C200d variants with the more powerful C300 and C220d respectively.

Entry-level C200 and diesel-powered C250d sedans have increased by $500 in price to $61,900 before on-roads and $71,400 respectively, while both new-to-the-range C220d and C300 four-door variants also rise $500 to $63,400 and $69,900 compared with their predecessors.

All four variants are offered in an Estate body style for an additional $2500.

Succeeding the C250, the C300 utilises a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 180kW of power and 370Nm of torque – an increase of 25kW/20Nm over the outgoing 155kW/350Nm.

Similarly, the base 1.6-litre turbo-diesel, seven-speed automatic C200d is replaced with a higher displacement turbocharged 2.2-litre four-cylinder unit mated to a new nine-speed transmission – increasing performance by 25kW/80Nm to 125kW/400Nm in the C220d.

Petrol C200 and diesel C250d grades are still underpinned by the same engines, both turbocharged 2.0-litre units outputting 135kW/300Nm and 155kW/350NNm respectively.

The aforementioned C-Class variants also gain access to the Exclusive Line package at no additional cost, which bundles 18-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels, Mercedes’ Agility Control suspension, Artico-stitched dashboard and beltlines, silver chrome and brown ash wood trim, and a Mercedes-Benz star on the bonnet.

Exclusive to C200 and C220d variants is an adaptive Airpanel radiator grille and Artico upholstery, while C300 and C250d grades gain leather seats.

Plug-in hybrid C350e sedan and estate models have also risen in price by $600 each to $75,900 and $78,400 respectively, both powered by a combination of a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol combustion engine and an electric motor for a combined output of 205kW/600Nm.

Sports-focussed AMG C43 grades have gone up by $711 in the sedan and $712 in wagon to $102,611 and $105,112, while the range-topping C63 S has risen by $1596 to $157,211 for the four-door and $159,711 for the Estate.

Mercedes-Benz is currently dominating the premium mid-size segment, with 3449 C-Classes sold in the first five months of the year representing about 37 per cent of the segment.

The next nearest competitor – its CLA stablemate – has sold 1435 units, while the BMW 3 Series is currently placed third with 1120 sales followed by the Audi A4 on 972.
