Preview: 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

First launched in 2007, Mercedes’ best selling model line is going under the knife for the 2015 model year. Initially conceived as the entry point into the Mercedes-Benz owner’s club, the C-Class line has since relinquished that title to the new CLA. As such, Mercedes will be moving the new C-Class closer in line with the new S-Class in terms of style, luxury and technology.

Driven: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe

We recently had our first exposure to the 2012 version of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, via a week-long loan of the utterly lovely C63 AMG Coupe. If you missed that review (wherein we compare the C-Class with all relevant competitors) you should definitely give it a browse. And while driving the C63 is a singular experience that we highly recommend, we can honestly say that we were looking forward to testing the C250 with almost as much anticipation as the AMG car.

First Look: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series

Mercedes-Benz debuted the 2012 C63 AMG Coupe Black Series, a special edition that the company is calling its fastest C-Class ever. Its 6.2-liter V-8 engine boasts 510 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, up 59 horsepower and 14 pound-feet over the current C63 AMG.

Driven: 2010 Mercedes-Benz C350 Sport

Mercedes-Benz was kind enough to give us a week in the not-quite-AMG-spec C350 Sport Sedan. This competitor to the BMW 335i and Audi A4 S-Line, came lightly equipped with the Multimedia Package and the Advanced Agility Package. We had one week with the C350, and here is what we thought.

Our spy photographers have captured some images of Mercedes-Benz’s third attempt at producing a competitor for the BMW 3-Series Coupe. Unlike the C-Class Sport Coupe and CLC-Class of the past years, the new C-Class Coupe looks to be a true coupe, not a hatchback.

Cadillac’s Art & Science design language will be heightened at this January’s Detroit Auto Show. GM’s non-Buick luxury division will be previewing an entirely new concept car, and we’re told it’s nothing we’ve seen before, so go ahead and rule out any possibility of a production ATS sedan to rival the C-Class and 3-Series.

Driven: 2009 Mercedes-Benz C300 Sport

After spending some time with Mercedes’ hot-burning C63 AMG, we thought it apt to give the rest of the C-Class range a shot to see if the new Benz C can all-around top other premium sport sedans like the BMW 3-Series and Lexus IS. While we did enjoy our C300 Sport, we found the $45,000 as-tested price a little high, especially when a BMW 335i offers better performance for a more reasonable price. Still, much of the blame for the hefty price tag is down to heavy treading on the options list…
