Mercedes is refreshing its C-Class sedan for the 2015 model year, and the brand has released photos revealing the car’s updated interior along with some information on exactly what kind of technology options the new C-Class will be packing.


Design cues in the new C-Class are particularly close to those in the brand’s newest small car, the CLA. The most obvious borrowed element is the touchscreen attached to the top of the dashboard, but that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to technology in the car.

The 2015 C-Class has a head-up display that will project information to the driver in such a way that it appears to be floating over the hood, about six feet in front of the driver. Information on speed, speed limits, navigation instructions and messages from the “DISTRONIC PLUS” system are all sent to the head-up display.

Mercedes’ new S-Class recently debuted the air balance package, making the car capable of GPS-based climate control along with active fragrancing and ionisation of the air. As features normally do in the auto industry, the air balance package is trickling down to the C-Class and will be available with the car.

Also coming to the C-Class from the S-Class is Mercedes’ ‘intelligent drive’ suite of driver aides, including autonomous braking, radar-based cruise control and lane-keep assist.

Improvements are being made to the car’s driving dynamics as well thanks to new chassis design and an updated suspension system. Mercedes claims that the new 2015 C-Class will be 221 pounds lighter than the car it is replacing, due largely in part to the car’s new aluminium hybrid bodyshell.

Underneath, a new 4-link front axle suspension system has been designed for the standard car, though upgraded models are now available with air suspension.

A job well donw on the interior for the C Class. So now it can seperate itself from the CLA being the slightly higher trim level. This interior definitely justifies it!

Yeah I love the center console that runs right down the middle of the car, they way they designed it is amazing, i bet because of it's size that it will have a lot of storage, much more than the outgoing C-Class.

A nice interior. Hopefully the exterior's not too different. I'm quite partial to the somewhat aggressive but still classy look of the current C-class. And even though I love the 6.2L V-8, I do hope they use something a bit more economical in the AMG. And hopefully that car's not pushing $100,000 USD . . .

Was just at my dealer signing papers for my CLA and they were saying the mouse looking thing, if it's the same as in the S-class actually lets you hover your hand over it and it displays a pointer on screen. The new S-class is similar but has a number pad on it.

I can see the exterior having some CLA influence into it.

I'm pretty excited to see it when they decide to unveil it.
