With an all-new Mercedes C-Class being developed for a 2014 launch, the German auto maker is preparing the current version of the car for its retirement with a couple of special treatments. The latest is a limited edition series called the “Edition C” for all sedan, coupe and wagon variants.
The Edition C models comes with distinctive visual features, luxury interior appointments, and a long list of equipments and features. On the styling front, the Edition C gets a bold front grile high-gloss black louvres and chrome trim, darkened headlights, chrome taillight trims, and AMG front apron, side sill panels and rear apron.
The saloon and wagon versions get 17-inch painted in black with a high-sheen finish, paired with 225/45 R 17 front and rear tyres, and coupe models benefit from wider 245/40 R 17 tyres on the rear wheels.
Interior features include sports seats in ARTICO man-made leather/ DINAMICA microfibre in black (AMG sports seats in the Coupé) with two-tone contrasting topstitching in blue/alpaca grey and a dark aluminium trim with longitudinal grain. You also get nappa leather on the steering wheel and shift/selector lever gaiter plus DINAMICA microfibre-trimmed door centre panels. The loaded Edition C also comes with an 11.4 cm multifunction colour display in the instrument cluster, including ATTENTION ASSIST.
The Edition C treatment is available as a package for the Saloon and Estate models already featuring the AVANTGARDE trim, and adds €1011.50 to the price of the car. For the Coupe version it costs €1785.
