Mercedes-Benz C-Class Specifications

2015 C - Class Sedan
C is for change.
Year after year, the C‑Class has reached far
ahead in performance, refinement and bold
innovation — and put it all within reach. For
2015, a dramatically new C‑ Class fuses sporty,
spacious and stylish like no car in its class. It
can also protect you and connect you like no
one else’s sedan — in any class. It’s far more
than a changed C. More like a sea change.
C 300 Sedan. Turbocharging and a team
of technological advances generate 241 hp
and eager acceleration from four efficient
cylinders. Available with rear-wheel drive1
or optional 4matic® all-wheel drive, the
C 300 is generous with style and standard
equipment, from its grille-mounted Star
and 17" wheels to its richer, roomier cabin
and industry-exclusive safety innovations.
Sport and Luxury Packages let you tailor
your sedan inside and out to fit your style.
C 400 4matic Sedan. A new biturbo V‑6
sends 329 hp and 354 lb‑ft of torque to all
four 18" AMG® wheels — part of its standard
Sport Package. Along with aggressive AMG
body styling, a sport-tuned suspension and
performance-focused cockpit, the C 400 is
also lavish with luxury. Heated front seats,
Burmester ® premium sound, KEYLESS‑GO®
and LED headlamps are all standard. New
options for both models include a Head‑Up
Display and AIRMATIC® air suspension.

Your heart will race. Your gaze will linger.
The Mercedes-Benz designs that people now regard as
classics were all born as something strikingly modern.
What unites them is also what distinguishes them from
other cars: Balance, sculpture and details that start out
ahead of their time, and stand up to the test of time.
Style is subjective. That is perhaps the only characteristic of
design that most people can agree upon. But when the eyes
behold the new C‑Class, consensus seems to form quickly
on a number of its attributes. Part of that comes from the
cohesiveness of the design itself — a flowing sculpture that
expresses its athletic performance with confident elegance.
Its long wheelbase, short overhangs and taut sheet metal — all of it lightweight aluminum — further assert its core values.
In keeping with its sporting spirit, the new C integrates its
iconic chrome Star within the dual chrome crosswings of
its wide grille. The front apron sweeps into the headlamps,
which define not only the front of the car but its profile as
well. Crisp character lines draw the eye to the toned muscle
of the rear shoulders. Shapely LED taillamps and a subtle
spoiler sculpted into the trunklid leave a distinctive parting
impression that fulfills every promise the front end began.
Three distinctive looks are available. The C 300’s standard
lower bodywork is subtly accented in chrome, and sets off
the standard 17" split 5‑spoke wheels. The Luxury Package,
a C 300 option, includes a traditional grille with a stand-up
Star, along with 17" multispoke wheels. The Sport Package,
standard on the C 400 and optional on the C 300, features
aggressively chiseled AMG® body styling and 18" wheels — or
a 19" upgrade — and the stance of a sport-tuned suspension.

Exquisite appointments. Zero disappointments.
No matter how closely you examine the new C‑Class cabin,
there’s one thing you won’t find: compromise. From its wide,
flowing console to its satin aluminum accents, it’s a multidimensional environment that’s functional, fresh and fun.
The visual centerpiece of the C ‑Class cockpit
is its cascading console. But the car’s center
of attention is without a doubt its driver. Every
control is optimized to fit, feel and function
naturally. Its instruments are designed to read
quickly and clearly — from its analog gauges
and vivid color screens to its newly available
Head‑Up Display. Every element is engineered
to work with cohesive unity, while achieving
a higher order of aesthetic harmony as well.
Three -dimensional shapes envelop the driver
and passengers without crowding them. The
most spacious C‑Class yet, many details add
to its open feel. Surfaces are cleverly shaped.
The glass area is generous. And the dashtop
screen reads crisply without a bulky visor.
Polished chrome and low-sheen aluminum
add rich detail to the switches and aircraftstyle vents. And a wide choice of upholstery
colors can be paired with an array of decidedly
modern finishes: Gloss Black with aluminum,
matte-finish Open-pore Black Ash wood, the
linear grain and deep gloss of Linden wood,
or the timeless warmth of Burl Walnut wood.
Every car gets graded on a curve.
Some drivers crave power. Others seek comfort. But nothing earns more points with a driver than how a car
handles. What bonds the new C to the road is more than a highly capable chassis — it’s a legacy. The forefather
of today’s C ‑Class premiered the world’s first multilink suspension. Each of its 10 links — five per rear wheel — controls a single dimension of motion — for handling that’s precise and refined, yet sporty and fun. Thirty years
later, the design is still a Mercedes‑Benz hallmark, and an industry benchmark. For 2015, the lighter, tighter
C‑Class features new torque vectoring — a technique that uses physics and geometry to ace any handling test.
C 400 4matic Sedan shown with optional Iridium Silver
metallic paint, 19" AMG multispoke wheels, Panorama
roof, and Multimedia and Premium Packages.
Performs better under pressure.
There’s a reason that terms like pre-stressed, tempered and pressure-treated
indicate superior performance. The same concept makes the C‑Class eager
to outperform, too. Turbocharging, direct fuel injection and a newly available
air suspension all convert higher pressure into response that’s quicker and
sharper, yet seamless. So what you feel behind the wheel is 100% unstressed.
Turbo power. An intercooled turbo boosts the inline-4 in
the C 300 Sedan to 241 hp. Its peak torque of 273 lb‑ft is
all on tap from just 1,300 rpm — for quicker response in any
situation. And even with 20% more power and torque than
its predecessor, it’s more fuel-efficient as well. In the C 400
4matic Sedan, a biturbo V‑6 puts out 329 hp and 354 lb‑ft
of torque. It’ll sprint to 60 mph in a mere 5.2 seconds,2 yet
return up to 29 mpg on the highway.3 Both engines employ
advanced technology that acts with exceptional speed and
precision, to make more torque from less fuel, with fewer
emissions. The turbos spool up to high rpm with virtually no
lag. The Direct Injection applies up to 2,900 psi of pressure,
to finely atomize the fuel spray. The rapid-multispark ignition
can fire each spark plug up to four times in a millisecond, for
cleaner, more complete combustion of every droplet of fuel.
Multiple modes. The new AGILITY SELECT® system can alter
the car’s performance character with the flick of one button
on the console. Any of five programs can be selected: ECO,
Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual — which you can set
up à la carte. Each program includes specific settings for the
shift points, throttle response and steering effort, as well as
the ECO Start/Stop system and climate-control efficiency. It
also varies the AIRMATIC® suspension on models so equipped.
Sporty shifting. A versatile 7‑speed automatic transmission
features an intuitive electronic selector and shift paddles — all
fingertip-close without taking a hand from the steering wheel.
At any time, a tap of the paddles offers instant manual control
of gear changes. Fully automatic shifting resumes after a few
moments — but if you’re taking a corner or you downshifted to
hold your speed on a hill, it’ll stay manual until you’re done.
Fuel-saver. While you wait at a red light or in heavy traffic,
ECO Start/Stop can automatically shut off the engine, to
help save fuel and emissions. The moment you’re ready to
go, the system restarts the engine instantly and seamlessly.
All-wheel confidence. Standard on the C 400 and a C 300
option, 4matic® is one of the lightest, most efficient all-wheel
drive systems in its class. It automatically sends the engine’s
torque to the tires with the best grip — whether that’s all four
wheels, two of them, or even just one. And since 4matic is
especially nimble, it adds cornering fun in summer as much
as it enhances your confidence on wet roads or in winter.4
Control with comfort. The 4‑wheel multilink suspension’s
new front axle relieves the struts of any wheel-locating duty.
The legendary 5-arm rear axle is further refined, with forged
aluminum components to cut weight while raising rigidity and
precision. Four suspension setups are offered. The standard
selective damping can instantly firm up for sharper response
in corners, while maintaining ride quality on uneven surfaces.
The Sport Package5 adds firmer tuning. A Luxury Package for
the C 300 emphasizes comfort. A new option is also a class
first: AIRMATIC. An advanced air suspension, it continuously
adjusts to optimize control, comfort and composure. AGILITY
SELECT lets you engage two Sport modes. On every model,
standard ESP® Curve Dynamic Assist can shift torque toward
the outside rear wheel in a corner, to further enhance agility.4
Rolling style. The C 300 Sedans come with 17" split 5‑spoke
alloy wheels, or any of four optional choices all the way up to
19" AMG® wheels.6 Every C 400 is fitted with AMG wheels — a standard 18" 5‑spoke style or two 19" multispoke options.
A mode for every mood.
It’s like setting up your car in a video game, only far more
rewarding because it’s real. With a few taps of a switch on
the console, AGILITY SELECT® lets you choose among five
drive programs for your C ‑ Class — from ECO to Sport+.
Each setup reprofiles as many as four driving systems plus
two efficiency factors. One mode lets you configure each
element individually. It’s almost like having 120 cars in one.
In reality, it’s having one car that always feels just right.
Drive decider. The five drive modes of AGILITY
SELECT let you alter the car’s character with one
button. Four of them are preconfigured: Comfort,
ECO, Sport, and Sport+ each vary the steering,
shifting and throttle response, as well as the ECO
Start/Stop and climate control settings, plus the
available AIRMATIC® suspension’s three modes.
Custom car. In addition to the four preconfigured
drive modes of AGILITY SELECT, you can use the
touchpad controller and central screen to create a
mode all your own. With up to 120 combinations,
the Individual mode lets you sharpen handling while
optimizing fuel economy, quicken acceleration while
maximizing cabin comfort, or even enjoy full manual
control of the paddle-shifted 7‑speed transmission.
Feast for the power-hungry.
The class-devouring output of two all-new biturbo V-8s is but
a first course for the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 Sedans. From
their tantalizing thrust to the intoxicating snarl of their variable
exhaust, they elevate 47 years of AMG passion to new heights.
They’re also lighter and ideally balanced, brilliantly advancing
a legacy rooted in championship racecars and thoroughbreds
for the street. Their heart and soul is, as always, crafted by the
hands of its own master: “One man, one engine” is a guiding
philosophy — and a pedigree of performance evident throughout
the car. It’s a promise made in the rigors of competition that a
Mercedes-AMG fulfills even in the routine of a daily commute.

Take your heart racing.
Crowning the engine of each AMG C 63 is a plaque
bearing the signature of the master artisan whose two
hands carefully brought it to life. The same passion
for precision courses throughout the vehicle, from its
racing-derived powertrain, chassis and bodywork, to
its exclusive instruments, controls and appointments.
The impeccable intensity of AMG engineering and
craftsmanship puts a world of performance at your
feet — and more importantly, directly into your hands.
AMG C 63 Sedan. A new generation of
handcrafted AMG power unites racingdeveloped technology with numerous
other advances. A pair of high-pressure,
high-rpm turbos are nested between the
banks of the 4.0‑liter V‑8, eradicating
lag and pressure loss. Direct Injection
and rapid-mulitspark ignition team with
ultralow-friction NANOSLIDE® cylinder
walls, zirconium-alloy heads, and highstrength/lightweight magnesium and
composite components. The AMG C 63
outshines its competitors with 469 hp,
479 lb‑ft of torque from just 1,750 rpm.
A standard limited-slip differential expertly
sends it to the rear wheels, for balanced
handling and a 4.0‑second 0‑60 time2 — all with dramatically improved efficiency.
AMG C 63 S Sedan. With its increased
output, dynamic engine mounts, and new
electronic limited-slip differential, the
AMG C 63 S is arguably the most precise
car in its class. It’s irrefutably the most
powerful: The new 4.0‑liter biturbo V‑8
generates breathtaking figures: 503 hp,
516 lb‑ft of torque, and 0‑60 mph in a
mere 3.9 seconds. The new S‑Model
is further distinguished by its standard
19" wheels,6 red brake calipers, and
exclusive exterior and cockpit details.
Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
DYNAMIC SELECT. With the touch of a
console-mounted paddle, the driver of
either AMG C 63 can dial in the response
of its 7‑speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT® MCT
transmission, as well as the multistage
ESP,® AMG Adaptive Sport Suspension,
available AMG Performance Exhaust, and
more. In addition to four preconfigured
drive programs, you can set up your own
Individual mode, too. Separate controls
on the console also let you adjust nearly
all of these systems directly as well.
Competitive chassis. The exclusively
developed front axle gives both sedans
a 1.2" wider track and more negative
camber, to enhance grip and stability at
speed. Staggered-width 18" or 19" AMG®
twin 5‑spoke wheels1 are standard — or
you can opt for forged-alloy 19" wheels
in a new cross-spoke design, in silver
or black. Massive AMG brakes employ
multipiston front calipers. AMG Carbon
Ceramic brakes7 are an S‑Model option.
Tailored cockpit. The driver-focused
cabin features exclusive AMG controls
and instrumentation. An AMG-specific
Head-Up Display8 is optional. Finely
finished appointments satisfy the eye
and the touch equally. Highlights from
the rich menu of options include AMG
Performance front seats, soft two-tone
Nappa leather, and carbon fiber trim.

You never saw it coming, but your car did.
For more than 60 years, Mercedes-Benz engineers have been predicting the future of driving safety by
inventing it. From the patent for the crumple zone in 1951 to the first stability control 20 years ago,
many of their breakthroughs have gone on to become the safety standards all automobiles must meet.
Today’s C ‑Class doesn’t just imagine what’s next. It actually looks ahead — and all around the car — to
detect imminent danger, alert you to it, and help you respond to avoid it. Someday all cars might do this.
Right now, no car in its class can help you see the future — or better yet, experience it — like a C ‑Class.
Looks out for danger, and sees you through it.
With Intelligent Drive, Mercedes-Benz introduces the next generation
of safer driving, and its breakthroughs are truly visionary. Multipurpose
cameras, multirange radar and a multitude of sensors continually
survey your surroundings. An integrated network of systems can
alert you to danger from almost any direction — because they’re able
to see more at once than the human eye. They can adapt the car’s
speed, steering, braking and exterior lighting to rapidly changing
situations — because they can multitask more effectively. And they
can even take action autonomously on your behalf — to ease your
journey, help protect you, and look out for others, like never before.

Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive.
Stereo multipurpose cameras.
While you drive, a set of multitasking
cameras continuously captures a rapid
series of images of the environment in
front of the car. High-speed algorithms
help the system’s “eyes” to recognize
other cars and trucks or pedestrians,
and then predict their movement in
six dimensions of space and time. This
ongoing perception helps the various
systems of Intelligent Drive respond
instantly as needed, when needed.
Radar-based autonomous braking.
When you’re driving above 5 mph,
new COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST
PLUS uses multirange radar to monitor
your speed and distance to the vehicle
ahead. If it senses that a collision is
likely, it alerts you to brake. As soon as
you do, its Adaptive Brake Assist can
automatically increase braking to the
ideal level.10 And in certain situations,
it can apply the brakes autonomously
if you do not respond to an alert.
Detecting cross-traffic and pedestrians.
The Driver Assistance Package includes systems that can help detect an impending collision with
a vehicle or pedestrian ahead — even while you aren’t using its DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise
control. If the sensors of Intelligent Drive detect cross-traffic or recognize pedestrians in your path,
an alert sounds. The instant you apply the brakes, it can precisely boost braking pressure to the
ideal level. And if you fail to heed the alert for a stopped vehicle or a crossing pedestrian, it can
automatically apply up to 100% braking force to help prevent or reduce the severity of an impact.9
Pedestrian Recognition takes action: 1. Cameras detect pedestrian crossing.
2. Audible warnings alert driver
to urgently apply the brakes.
3. If driver brakes, BAS® PLUS instantly
increases braking to level needed.
4. If driver doesn’t brake soon enough,
PRE‑SAFE Brake does automatically.
Please see endnotes at back of brochure.
A watchful eye if it’s time for a rest.
By continually monitoring a variety of
driving behaviors, ATTENTION ASSIST®
can alert you if it detects signs of
drowsiness on long trips. It measures
more than 70 variables, starting in the
first minutes of a drive, to establish a
profile for the warning thresholds. If
the system issues an alert, the car’s
available COMAND® navigation can
offer to help find a nearby rest area.11
Multilane multitaskers. Two available
systems make highway driving easier.
Active Blind Spot Assist can alert you to
some unseen vehicles in the adjacent
lane.12 Active Lane Keeping Assist can
vibrate the steering wheel if you start
to drift across visible lane markings.11
It can even help detect a vehicle about
to overtake yours in the next lane. If
you disregard the alerts, both systems
can gently brake selected wheels to
help guide the car back into its lane.
5. Earlier or autonomous braking helps to
prevent a collision or reduce its severity.
Cruise control that steers and stops. Available DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive
cruise control, a Mercedes-Benz first,
uses radar-based technology to adapt
your set speed in response to the flow
of traffic ahead. It can automatically
slow the vehicle — or even brake it to a
halt — until your path clears, and then
resume with just a tap. As you cruise,
its Steering Assist feature uses the
cameras to help keep you centered in
your lane, even around mild curves.13
Brilliance without bulbs. LEDs are
utilized for nearly all exterior lighting:
Daytime Running Lamps, turn signals,
brake lamps and taillamps. Daylightapproximating LED headlamps and
fiber-optic taillamps are part of the
Premium Package.5 And the Lighting
Package adds active LED headlamps
that swivel their beams as you steer,
seamlessly vary their high beam range
to vehicles ahead, and brighten your
turns into dark driveways or garages.
Action when danger is behind you.
Part of the Driver Assistance Package,
PRE-SAFE® PLUS uses radar to sense
a possible rear-end collision before it
occurs. If it senses you’re about to be
hit from behind, it can tighten the front
seat belts. If you’re already stopped,
it can firmly apply the brakes to help
minimize whiplash injuries. It can also
hold the brakes after impact, to help
prevent a secondary collision even if
the driver’s foot slips off the brake.
6. With a collision averted, driver and pedestrian continue
on their way. Intelligent Drive continues to look ahead.

Black leather, Open -pore Black Ash wood, and
optional Interior and Multimedia Packages.
Fine art meets state-of-the-art.
For Mercedes-Benz designers, balancing technology with tradition is a challenge
to be cherished, not fought. It’s no secret that the passion for innovation has always
been a pillar of the brand. But to be honest, it’s also a lot of fun to create something
totally new — and not just how it looks, but in the way it connects with you. The sleek
high-resolution displays are a perfect example, with animated menus that are logical
and enjoyable to use. So are its aluminum-ringed vents, crafted to feel as good as the
flowing wood trim looks. Beauty is in the eye, for sure. Here, it’s also in your hands.
New sensations for all of your senses.
Luxury is a long-standing tradition at Mercedes-Benz,
but it’s never been caught standing still. That’s because
of another tradition that runs even deeper: Innovation.
Ventilated front seats, ambient cabin lighting, and the
Panorama roof were all introduced under the ThreePointed Star. But Mercedes-Benz engineers strive to
satisfy more than your sense of indulgence. They want
to enhance your actual well-being, too. The Air Balance
Package can refresh you with subtle aromatherapy as
you drive. More significantly, its ionizer can purify the
air of bacteria, spores and allergens so effectively, it
can improve your breathing capacity. In fact, the new
C is the only car in its class certified by the European
Centre for Allergy Research Foundation.14 True luxury
should take your breath away — in the figurative sense.
The new C-Class can also, quite literally, give it back.
Eyes on the road ahead. An optional
new Head-Up Display8 can project an
8"-wide high-resolution virtual image
a few feet in front of the windshield.
Color graphics show your speed and
cruise-control settings, plus the next
instruction for the available COMAND®
navigation, all well within your natural
field of vision. The display automatically
adapts to ambient lighting conditions,
but is further adjustable for brightness
and height — with the position stored in
the standard driver-seat memory.
Stress-relieving style. Along with the
supple richness of hand-fitted leather
upholstery, the Interior Package includes
LED ambient lighting for the cabin. First
pioneered by Mercedes-Benz, the subtle
glow that defines the cabin space is
more than a stylish detail. Research has
shown that it can elevate passengers’
sense of secure comfort when driving in
darkness. In the new C‑Class, LEDs and
fiber optics work in concert to highlight
the flowing console and sweeping door
trim with edge-lighting. You can select
from three colors — warm amber Solar,
cool blue Polar, or Neutral white, to suit
your mood, or create one, at any time.
Illuminated front door sills are included,
to welcome you in or ease your exit.
Comfort zones. The standard dual-zone
climate control offers individual left and
right settings for temperature, as well as
three airflow modes — diffused for gentle
flow with minimal drafts, moderate, and
focused for greater air volume from the
dash vents. For more consistent comfort,
a solar sensor monitors the intensity and
direction of sunlight on the cabin, further
augmented by available GPS data to help
calculate the sun’s precise position.
Air quality. In addition to the standard
combination filter for dust, pollen and
odors, the optional Air Balance Package
enhances the cabin’s air quality with
three additional innovations. An ionizer
uses an electrical charge to create the
same refreshing effect you feel after a
summer storm. Ionized oxygen molecules
can deactivate many viruses, bacteria
and spores, to help improve breathing.
Additional activated charcoal filtration
helps remove airborne pollutants. And
a fragrance atomizer can periodically
introduce subtle aromas into the cabin.
An LED-backlit vial in the glovebox comes
in a variety of scents, all formulated not
to linger on clothes or the car’s interior.
Sun, stars or shade. The optional power
Panorama roof features a vast expanse of
heat-rejecting glass. Its power sunshade
can close itself to help keep the cabin
cooler while you’re parked. A fine-mesh
power rear-window sunshade, as well as
manual pull-out sunblinds for all the rear
door windows, are also available options.
Preferred seating. Intuivite seat-shaped
power controls make it easy to find your
ideal driving position. A memory system
lets you store up to three positions for the
driver seat, 4‑way power steering column,
and both side mirrors. Heated front seats,
a C 300 option, are standard equipment
on the C 400. The Interior Package adds
the cooling comfort of ventilated front
seats, along with soft, hand-fitted leather
upholstery, and a 3‑position memory for
the standard power front passenger seat.
The heated power side mirrors can also
be folded in electrically — at the touch of
a button, or when you remote-lock the
car. Their aerodynamic design also helps
divert road spray from the side windows,
further enhancing your outward vision
when you’re driving in rainy weather.
Extended stay. More than three inches of
additional wheelbase help make the rear
cabin of the new C more inviting than
ever before. Legroom, knee space, and
ease of entry and exit are all significantly
increased. The seatbacks fold down in
a 40/20/40 split, allowing for a greater
variety of cargo and passenger combos,
including passing a long item through
the center while two passengers ride in
comfort.15 For easier access through any
door, available KEYLESS‑GO® lets the
driver lock and unlock the car without
touching its key.5 Pushbutton KEYLESSSTART is standard, while a new package
pairs a power trunklid with HANDS-FREE
ACCESS — a convenience that lets you
open or close the trunklid with a gentle
“kick” motion under the rear bumper.
Keeps you in touch,
and in tune.

The user-friendly technology in the new C goes to great
lengths to bring your world closer. It can get you to a new
restaurant across town, and dodge traffic along the way.
It can play music from your collection, or import it from
another country. And it’ll listen, and learn how you talk.
Crisp instruments team with vividly illustrated color screens
and a new touchpad controller to unify most every cockpit
feature. Analog gauges flank a color multifunction display
you can access from the thick 3‑spoke steering wheel. The
7" central screen presents entertainment and convenience
features with clear, animated menus. Its sleek, freestanding
design is at once easier to see and to see around. A classic
analog clock is included with any of the wood trim options.
Standard audio gear includes Bluetooth® audio streaming,16
dual USB ports, an SD card reader, and FrontBass,® which
creates bass enclosures from the car’s front body structure.
The Premium Package5 adds SiriusXM Radio with a 6‑month
All Access plan trial,17 and a 13 ‑speaker, 590‑watt surround
sound system crafted by Germany’s Burmester.® A 10GB
Music Register is in the Multimedia Package. And TuneIn®
world radio is one of many Mercedes-Benz mbrace18 apps.
Navigation19 options include the new Garmin® MAP PILOT — a
feature-rich system that fits on an SD card — or the COMAND®
system. Part of the Multimedia Package, it adds a large 8.4"
screen, and features a fast 80GB hard drive, 3D maps with
building profiles, three years of map updates, and three years
of SiriusXM Traffic and Weather.17 The Cloud-based apps of
mbrace® bring the Internet to your dash, with Google,® Yelp
and other useful tools. It also makes the car a WiFi hotspot.
Rotary controller. COMAND’s clear, animated
on‑screen menus feature an intuitive “carousel”
layout. Turn the knob, and your selection options
rotate exactly the same way, with tactile “clicks”
adapting to the number of items in each menu.
Touchpad. The new fingertip interface responds
much like the tablet you use at home, but is easy
to master by feel alone. You can swipe left–right
or up–down to navigate maps and menus, and
pinch to zoom on a map. You can even handwrite
letters and numbers on it, with each one shown
on‑screen and confirmed by the system out loud.
Drive modes. An intuitive paddle switch lets you
sequence through the modes of AGILITY SELECT.®
Nearby buttons can raise the ride height for the
available AIRMATIC® suspension, and operate the
power rear-window sunshade. A button on the
right turns the ECO Start/Stop system off or on.
Quick-access keys. Three keys on the touchpad
let you call up the main audio menu, go back one
step, or access your programmable favorites. For
greater ease and comfort, the Back and Favorite
keys are duplicated near the rotary controller.
Volume and mute. A thumbwheel control lets
the driver or front passenger adjust the volume
of whatever mode is in use — audio, a phone call,
or a navigation announcement. Push down on the
thumbwheel to mute the sound, or to shut off the
microphone during a call. The driver can also do
all of this from the multifunction steering wheel.
Easy to reach,
simple to grasp.
The new touchpad central controller brings the best features of
a touchscreen to a convenient console location where your hand
falls naturally. It responds to fingertip gestures using one or two
fingers, and even recognizes handwriting. In addition, a rotary
controller and dedicated keys offer you multiple input options — so
you can use whichever method you prefer for many functions.

Introduction dates vary. Please see your dealer.
Stated rates of acceleration are estimated based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road
surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.
2015 EPA estimated fuel economy figures. Compare the estimated mpg to the estimated mpg of other vehicles. You may get different mileage
depending on how fast you drive, weather conditions and trip length. Your actual highway mileage will probably be less than the highway estimate.
No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt.
Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions.
Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.
Standard or optional at no charge on C 400. Please see Options listing in this brochure or MBUSA.com/C for details.
Lower aspect ratio tires and accompanying wheels provide substantially increased treadwear, increased tire noise and reduced ride comfort.
Serious wheel and tire damage may occur if the vehicle is operated on rough or damaged road surfaces or upon encountering road debris
or obstacles. These tires are not designed for use on snow and ice. Winter tires mounted on appropriately sized and approved wheels are
recommended for driving in those conditions.
The carbon-ceramic brakes are designed expressly for high-performance braking. It is a characteristic of their materials and design that brake
noise/squeal may result, along with differing brake pedal feel at lower brake temperatures compared to higher operating temperatures.
Head-Up Display may not be visible with certain eyewear, including polarized glasses.
9 Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
10 COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It does not react to certain stationary objects, nor recognize
or predict the curvature and/or lane layout of the road or every movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be
attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle.
Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the system’s alerts before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.
Autonomous braking is available at speeds between approximately 5 and 65 mph.
11 Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and must be avoided. ATTENTION ASSIST® and/or Lane Keeping Assist may be insufficient to
alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury. Lane Keeping Assist operates at
speeds above approximately 20 mph.
12 Blind Spot Assist may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching
vehicles. It must not be used as a sole substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions.
13 DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to
stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s
responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary
to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may
not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely.

17 The purchase of a new, satellite radio-enabled vehicle includes a 6 -month introductory subscription to the Sirius All Access package, as well as a
3-year introductory subscription to SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Weather, when equipped with Multimedia Package. SiriusXM Traffic and Weather
services are available for select markets. SiriusXM Satellite Radio, SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Weather subscriptions are sold separately or
as a package after trial period. If you decide to continue your subscription after your trial, the plan you choose will automatically renew and you
will be charged according to your chosen payment method at then-current rates. Fees and taxes apply. To cancel you must call SiriusXM at

18 All Mercedes-Benz mbrace® services operate only where cellular and Global Positioning System satellite signals are available, which are provided
by third parties and not within the control of Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. An mbrace Package trial period is offered on new, Certified Pre-Owned
and pre-owned sales and leases at an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer. Subscriber Agreement is required for service to be active. Some
services are only available on select vehicles. Your PIN is required in order to use certain services. Some services may be limited or restricted in
some areas. Apps may be introduced and updated at varying dates, and may also require a vehicle software update. Driver is responsible for
complying with traffic and other laws. See your dealer or MBUSA.com/mbrace for details, including a list of compatible smartphones. Internetbased features require an active subscription to mbrace Mercedes-Benz Apps Package. Connection may be limited by cellular signal.
19 While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to
traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system’s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the
vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.
20 Roadside Assistance repairs may involve charges for parts, service and towing. Vehicle must be accessible from main roads. Depending on the
circumstance, these services may be provided by an outside provider, courtesy of Mercedes-Benz Roadside Assistance. Restricted roadways,
acts of nature and vehicle accessibility may limit our ability to provide services to you. For full details, eligibility requirements, and limitations/
exclusions of Sign and Drive services, as well as the Roadside Assistance Program, please see your dealer.
21 The mbrace Mobile App is compatible with Apple iPhone® models running iOS 7.0 or later, and Android-based phones running OS 2.3 or later.
Please visit MBUSA.com/mbrace for more information.

24 Rearview camera does not audibly notify driver of nearby objects and is not a substitute for actively checking around the vehicle for any obstacles or
people. Images displayed may be limited by camera field of view, weather, lighting conditions and the presence of dirt, ice or snow on the cameras.
25 Extra-cost option.
The personal rewards of striving to be the best are even more meaningful in the development of young
people than they are for automobiles. Instilling the values of leadership, goal-setting, discipline and
teamwork in youth is an investment in everyone’s future. It’s why Mercedes - Benz USA is collaborating
with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, with an ongoing commitment to train and place hundreds
of coaches for after-school and in-school sports programs in communities around the country. Sports
offer kids more than the chance to be physically active and have fun. It’s also an opportunity to have
a mentor who can guide them, help them learn how to deal with major life issues, and help them grow
stronger not just physically but in their character. As a Mercedes - Benz driver, you become a part of
this effort to give hundreds of thousands of kids a better life today, and all of us a brighter tomorrow.
