Responsive, refined and ready for what's next, the C 300 4MATIC is even more innovative, elegant and powerful for 2019. New driver assists and an even richer cabin are matched with a new 255-hp engine and confident all-wheel drive.
Aggressive resculpting of its deep front air dam, flared side sills and rear valance visually hug the road, just as the 18-inch or optional 19-inch AMG(R) wheels achieve the same goal in a literal sense. The diamond-block grille's hexagonal chrome pins radiate from the central Star. A polished chrome cross-strut and black slatted intakes expertly guide airflow past the shapely side sills to a deep rear valance with a chrome-outlined black diffuser insert. Bold and muscular yet flowing, the standard sport lower bodywork looks as if was sculpted as much in the gym as in the wind tunnel. Large mesh air intakes underscore the wide, slatted grille with its integrated Star. Chrome details add subtle highlights to the sporty shape.
A new 255-hp 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine combines numerous advances to deliver more power from less fuel. Its rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune themselves every few milliseconds to optimize performance, efficiency and emissions. An intercooled twin-scroll turbocharger and CAMTRONIC variable valve lift help deliver all of the engine's 273 lb-ft of torque from just 1,800 rpm, for vigorous response when taking off, merging or passing. With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly yet more smoothly, too. The lighter, more versatile transmission enhances quiet riding comfort and fuel-efficiency. The electronic selector and shift paddles let you control all gear changes with your hands on the steering wheel. And drivers can vary the shift modes via the innovative DYNAMIC SELECT system. A multimode drive program selector on the console lets you transform the car's character with the flip of a switch. Four modes (ECO, Comfort, Sport and Sport+) alter the throttle response, shift points, steering effort and ECO Start/Stop system. A fifth Individual mode allows you to create a mode of your own, even letting you set the transmission for purely manual shifting.
Intuitive, seat-shaped controls help you find your ideal driving position, including 4-way power lumbar support. The driver seat also includes a power-adjustable thigh support. A memory system for the driver seat recalls three stored positions for the seat plus the power steering column and side mirrors. Separate left and right temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes a dust and pollen filter that helps keep particles as small as 0.0002-inch from entering the cabin.
Radar-based technology can alert you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as you start to brake, it can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, it can also initiate braking automatically at a range of driving speeds. The system can also detect and react to crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds. The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST(R) continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a dashboard display.
