The 2013 Mercedes Benz C Class is now off the anvil and has got new Trims with a Revised 1.6-Litre Turbocharged Petrol Engine in the UK. The New 2013 C Class will be offered in three trims: Executive SE, AMG Sport and AMG Sport Plus.
The Executive SE is the new entry level variant in the revised trim range for the C180 BlueEFFICIENCY, C200 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and C220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Saloon and Estate models. Buyers get an option of upgrading their car with a new luxury package.
The Executive SE variant includes the three louver front grille with bonnet-mounted star, 17-inch alloy wheels with a seven twin-spoke design, automatically dimming rear view mirror and folding exterior door mirrors, chrome trim on the side, rear and shoulder line, a storage package and brown Ash wood trim with a matt finish. This variant is priced at £2,000.
The other two new variants, AMG Sport and AMG Sport Plus replaced the older Sport variant. The company says that the AMG Sport Saloon and Estate is cheaper by £960 (~Rs 84,000) than the previous Sport models. Unlike previous models, the AMG Sport Saloon features 17-inch AMG wheels and halogen headlights.
The AMG Sport Plus model includes 18-inch bi-colour AMG alloys, bi-Xenon front lights with Intelligent Light System with Adaptive High Beam Assist, AMG sports seats, Black Artico/Dinamica upholstery with contrast red stitching, red seat belts, AMG floor mats with red edging and automatic transmission with silver gearshift paddles.
There are new interior and exterior features that includes revised color options, repositioned cruise control and indicator stalks and easier-to-read silver graphics for the telematics screen.
The Coupé Trims can also be fitted with the AMG Handling Package that costs £530 (~Rs 46,000). The German Auto maker has revised the C 180 BlueEFFICIENCY‘s 1.6-litre Direct-Injection Turbocharged Petrol Pngine. It is a bit less powerful at 152 HP (154 PS) and develops 184 lb-ft (250Nm) of torque between 1,250 and 4,000 RPM.
In Britain, Mercedes Benz has also discarded the 3.5-liter V6 Petrol Engine option on the Saloon and Estate, while still offering it on the Coupé model. The C 63 AMG performance variants is unchanged by the 2013 model year revisions.
