Official photos of new W205 C-Class interior

Thoughts on the new C-Class interior versus the CLA-Class?

Mercedes-Benz shows 2014 C-Class interior cabin







Quote:
Mercedes-Benz has published a small batch of photos showing the interior cabin of the all-new C-Class (W205), following a teaser video released last weekend.

Several hours ago we posted the very first pics with the V-Class and now Mercedes-Benz is showing the interior of the fourth-gen C-Class which is due in January at NAIAS in Detroit. The cabin design follows the recent trend of Mercedes-Benz models, boasting a refined layout (with the exception of the touchscreen display) and a premium finish. It will be offered as standard with a 7-inch free-standing central display or an optional 8.4-inch color monitor along with an optional head-up display and a touch-controlled pad.

People inside will benefit from an innovative AC system which uses GPS data to detect tunnels to automatically close the air recirculation flap so that fume filled air won't enter the cabin. The new C-Class will also have a front passenger seat featuring a sensor which will disengage the front passenger airbag once it detects a child seat is in place.

Mercedes-Benz says the 2014 C-Class will have a "best in class" weight and an "unparalleled" structural integrity for this segment. Depending on selected engine, the new model will be up to 100 kg (220 lbs) lighter than its predecessor which will bring a 20 percent fuel consumption reduction without affecting power.

Also depending on engine choice will be the possibility to order an optional Airmatic air suspension which will allow the driver to choose between Comfort, ECO, Sport and Sport Plus modes that will alter damper settings. The system also comes with a self-leveling feature lowering the car's ride height during highway speeds in order to reduce fuel consumption and improve aerodynamics.

Expect more teasers and info to be released in the upcoming weeks to create a momentum for the car's Detroit arrival in January.

It sounds like the CLA is definitely moving down market in relation to the C.

Please go to your cp and list your location. This is a multinational forum, and cars from Slovakia are not the same as Belgium or the US.

While it would be sad to see Mercedes lose some of the prestige it has in the states, I would love for Mercedes to sell their A and B class here. I think if it were not for the brand's cache, they would have brought them over by now to compete with the other hatches and Ford's C-Max here.

Or sell them under a different name. I mean, Mercedes already sells the Smart cars in the states. That hasn't tarnished the brand (though mostly because people don't know about it).

I had a feeling this would happen but it only makes sense for mercedes to do so otherwise everyone would just flock to the CLA for the price. So its good that the C Class sets itself apart.

it looks good. but I just wanted to say this
" I KNEW IT!! "

mercedes is going to put that floating navigation in more cars.

All of those haters of the CLA will now have to accept that Mercedes is integrating that popout navigation on other cars too. I kind of expected it. the interior is nice though

brings the c class to 2013.

It basically is a nicer CLA interior. I'd want to sit in it and get a feel for the seats and how the materials feel.
