The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Will Go Fully Electric

  The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Will Go Fully Electric The Mercedes-Benz S-Class, very possibly the “best car in the world,” is going electric, Mercedes-Benz’s CEO Dieter Zetsche said Wednesday. And not just hybrid, which you can already get with the S550e. No, this will be full-on electric, and a challenge to Tesla, who has recently been beating them on their own turf. The new full-size sedan has a working name of the EQ S, and is part of a promised fleet of 10 new all-electric vehicles by 2022. Like all automaker promises, this one should be taken with a grain of salt, though in this case Mercedes has one powerful incentive to following through: China, where demand for electric vehicles is skyrocketing.

Its name may be unchanged, but the fresh-faced 2019 Mercedes-Benz C300 packs an all-new powerplant under its hood. The engine is but one slice of the almost 6500 modifications Mercedes claims to have made to the C-class sedan, coupe, and cabriolet as part of the entry-luxury model’s mid-cycle update.

More Power

Despite sharing its displacement with the previous engine, the turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four in the 2019 C300 is a new design. Armed with technologies such as variable intake-valve lift and a dual-scroll turbocharger, the forced-induction four makes 14 more horses than before, for a total to 255, while torque holds steady at 273 lb-ft.

The timeless classic was getting reworked on the inside like so many other Mercedes models. If a new infotainment system and LED screens aren’t what you’re looking for in a G-Wagen, then perhaps some bomb protection will tickle your fancy. That’s right, dictators, war lords, and drug kingpins looking for timeless G-Wagon styling to go along with military-grade protection, look no further. You can buy a fully armored G63 for $250,000 on AutoTrader right now.

Mercedes dreamt up the idea for the C-Class in 1974. It took eight years and hundreds of millions of dollars to translate that idea into the 1982 C 180.

The previous engine wasn’t known for its inspiring acoustics, and the new one won’t be, either. While the engine is quiet at idle and subdued at speed, the auditory experience at wide-open throttle remains a bit unbecoming for a vehicle wearing the three-pointed star.

Still, the little four-cylinder is more personable than before. It’s eager to run to redline, builds power progressively throughout the rev range, and, thanks in part to a shorter final-drive ratio (3.27:1 versus 3.07:1), the C300 moves off the line with ease. A nine-speed automatic transmission is the only game in town, but both rear- and all-wheel drive remain available (we drove the former version). The gearbox is both smooth and smart, happy to kick down a couple of gears with a small prod of the accelerator or motor along in top gear at more than 100 mph on the autobahn. That said, the transmission starts in second gear when placed in the default Comfort mode (there also are Eco, Sport, Sport+, and Individual settings)-an irksome trait that exacerbates the turbocharger’s minor lag.

  Find Out How Mercedes Encased The Original G-Class In Resin It took a whopping 8,892 working hours to complete the amber cube. In the build-up to the world reveal of the G-Class at the Detroit Auto Show in January, Mercedes took the teasing game to a whole new level. It used an original G from the off-roader’s first model year and dipped it in resin to create a special art piece dubbed “The Amber Cube” that made use of 40,708 liters of epoxy resin. It weighed a hefty 52 tons with the transport rack included or 46 tons with the underframe.

Mercedes expands 2019 C-Class upgrades to Coupe and Cabriolet. Earlier this month in Geneva, Mercedes - Benz showed us updated versions of the C-Class sedan, in both C 300 and AMG C 43 guises.

Those in search of more get up and go can continue to opt for the Mercedes-AMG C43, which comes standard with all-wheel drive. A pair of bigger turbochargers help the 3.0-liter V-6 produce 23 more horsepower than last year’s car. With 385 horses on tap, the C43 coupe and sedan will get to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, Mercedes says, with the cabriolet needing 4.6 ticks. We’d wager on even quicker times, as the current C43 coupe and sedan reached 60 in 4.1 seconds in our testing, while the droptop managed it in 4.3. The AMG-tuned nine-speed automatic carries over.

The extra power of the updated engine was greatly appreciated as we barreled along the open roads surrounding Gonnesweiler, Germany. In its element, the C43 remains rewarding to drive as ever. Its balanced chassis, chatty steering, and rear-biased all-wheel-drive system make for an engaging and enjoyable vehicle that almost makes up for the model’s extremely firm ride quality. Although some suspension tweaks were made to the 2019 C43, the car’s adaptive dampers are no more forgiving than before, with the ride ranging from back-aching in Comfort mode to back-breaking in the Sport+ setting.

It's a bold claim, but there is an argument to be made for lusting after the RDX over more expensive German competitors.

Thanks to a revised electronics architecture, the 2019 C-class is able to support a number of additional convenience and safety technologies, including a more advanced Distronic active-cruise-control system, that bring it one step closer to achieving parity with its bigger E- and S-class stablemates.

The semi-autonomous driving system relies primarily on a front-mounted camera and radar sensors at the front, sides, and rear of the car. Distronic-equipped C-class models also can use navigation data to automatically adjust their speed for upcoming curves or intersections. While the system was adept at keeping up with the flow of traffic, we found that it often seemed slow to process navigation information. For example, a C300 coupe we drove failed to slow for an upcoming roundabout and needed us to take control of the vehicle to safely decelerate in time.

A new anti-theft alarm can identify any impacts made to the C-class while parked and will send a push notification to the owner’s phone through the Mercedes Me mobile application if it suspects the vehicle has been damaged. It also shares information about any recorded impacts in the gauge-cluster screen when the driver returns.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan First Look: Going Global

  2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan First Look: Going Global A-Class finally reaches North America sporting a trunkThe 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan has finally made its debut, and the automaker chose to unveil it in the latest market to receive the compact Benz: the U.S. Once available in other markets outside of North America, the A-Class arrives in the U.S. market exclusively with a trunk. Sorry, hatchback lovers, the A-Class hatch is still forbidden fruit.

2019 Mercedes - Benz C 43 AMG 4Matic. For this the AMG development engineers have increased the output of the 3.0-litre V6 engine by 17 kW (23 hp) to 287 kW (390 hp). The peak torque of 520 Nm is available from 2500 to 5000 rpm.

Analog gauges that incorporate a 5.5-inch info screen are standard on the C300 and C43, while a 12.3-inch digital cluster now is optional. The larger unit pairs with a new 10.3-inch central screen, which replaces the standard 7.0-inch unit. As in the E- and S-classes, the C-class’s two big screens are manipulated by scrolling and tapping at the two touch-sensitive nubs on the left and right spokes of the redesigned steering wheel. Cruise-control functions are on the steering wheel as well, as Mercedes is almost done phasing out its traditional cruise-control stalk. Alternately, drivers can use the console-mounted rotary control knob and associated touchpad (which now includes haptic feedback) to access the infotainment features of the C-class.

The Look

Revised front and rear fascias and new LED head- and taillights give the C-class sedan, coupe, and cabrio a statelier look. Those in search of a sportier design can opt for the AMG Line package, which brings C43-style visuals to the C300.

For its part, the C43’s details include a grille like that of the outgoing C63 AMG (which receives the Panamericana grille design for its 2019 refresh), specific front and rear styling, a quartet of round exhaust outlets, a decklid spoiler, and available lightweight wheels that were wind-tunnel tested for improved aerodynamics-even if the resulting wheel design is anything but beautiful.

Improved powertrains, a new infotainment system, and more sophisticated driver aids should help the 2019 C300 and C43 weather the assault that’s coming from the all-new BMW 3-series that’s on the way and help keep the C-class near the top of the entry-luxury segment.
