Mercedes files trademarks for new naming scheme

  Mercedes files trademarks for new naming scheme This won't make things confusing at all.That simple equation has made it easy to help people tell regular Benzes apart from their amped up brethren (and from the fake AMG-badged poseurs running around). Alas, it looks like that might be coming to an end. AutoGuide has spotted that Mercedes has trademarked a new naming convention in Canada and other markets.

The updates Mercedes-Benz bestows upon the C-Class for the 2019 model year, while not massive, are significant enough to keep the model looking fresh in its crowded segment. Naturally, fascias and lighting units front and rear have been refreshed enough to make the new version recognizable from the old, but much bigger changes are hiding under the skin and inside the cabin. Plus, a little more power from the base engine can't hurt.

The biggest update for 2019 is the inclusion of driver assistance technologies for the C-Class that are inherited from its larger E-Class sibling. Active Driving Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Steering Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Lane Changing Assist are highlights of the package, all of which combine to allow semi-autonomous operation for limited periods under certain situations. This is not a fully autonomous package, but it's a step in that direction. It's all made possible by a new and improved set of camera and radar systems.

Plus Mercedes might be introducing a new model naming scheme to follow it.

C300 models get a 14 horsepower boost from their 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines to deliver 255 hp and 273 lb-ft (unchanged) of torque. Those ponies travel through a nine-speed automatic transmission, as before, with 4Matic all-wheel-drive optional. Acceleration figures haven't yet been announced, but we wouldn't expect much change from the current model's 5.8-second 0-60 performance. Fuel efficiency, too, will probably stay near or identical to the 24-mile-per-gallon city and 33-mpg highway ratings.

Check out the mildly revised 2019 C-Class in the image gallery above, and stay tuned for the full reveal from the rapidly approaching Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes-AMG A35 May Debut This Year With More Power Than Expected .
The milder version of Mercedes A-Class hot hatch could pack even more than the previously expected 300 hp. The new Mercedes-Benz A-Class will launch later this year with three new engines, but the real highlight of the range will take a little longer to premiere when the German brand will unveil the high-performance AMG variants of its compact model. According to Australia's Motor, even the less potent A35 AMG variant will allegedly pack around 335 horsepower (250 kilowatts) and 332 pound-feet (450 Newton-meters). Earlier rumors had indicated this powertrain would have closer to 300 hp (224 kW).
