Mercedes-Benz Cars at Auto China 2018: The new C-Class L Sedan for China

25.
April 2018
Beijing

The new long-wheelbase version of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan is celebrating its world premiere at Auto China 2018. Built in China for China, the long-wheelbase version debuts with a sharper design, digital cockpit, new comfort features and the latest iteration of Intelligent Drive. Also on show were the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class L Sedan and the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury show car. Both vehicles celebrated their world premiere on the eve of the biggest motor show in the People’s Republic of China.

The success of the C-Class is based in part on the broad diversity of its model line-up, which has included a long-wheelbase version of the C-Class Sedan since 2014. Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd. (BBAC) in Beijing produces it exclusively for the Chinese market. Compared with the regular sedan, the wheelbase of the C-Class L Sedan is eight centimetres longer, resulting in even more legroom for rear-seat passengers. The front passenger seat can also be electrically adjusted from the rear. The regular-wheelbase sedan is also for sale in China and locally produced there.

New four-cylinder engines equipped with 48-volt technology (EQ Boost) underscore the dynamic nature of the C-Class, making them even sportier and even more fun to drive. Now fitted as standard, the LED high-performance headlights feature a new design, while the MULTIBEAM LED headlights with ULTRA RANGE high beam are available as an option. The upgraded interior with fully digital instrument display, larger media screen and new multifunction steering wheel with touch-control buttons offer plenty of options for individualisation. Ambient lighting now with 64 colours, the Multicontour Seat Package with massage function and the ENERGIZING comfort control enhance driver wellbeing.

“People who know a little of the history of our brand here in China will know why the C-Class is very special to us. In 2014, here in Beijing on this stage, we introduced our game-changer: the long-wheelbase C-Class – a car that promised to transform our brand’ � � s perception from what had gone before. 380,000 customers since that day have confirmed that change and with their trust have placed the C-Class, also in quarter one of this year, as its segment leader”, says Nicholas Speeks, President and CEO of Beijing Mercedes-Benz Sales Service Co.

Further exclusive premieres at Auto China 2018

Unveiled for the first time on the eve of Auto China 2018 was the A-Class L Sedan, making it the latest member of the compact line-up. Developed exclusively for the Chinese market, its wheelbase is six centimetres longer. The highlights of the sedan model include driver assistance systems on par with those in the S-Class and the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system.

“The new A-Class L Sedan does a lot of things differently – and a lot of things first: It is the first long-wheelbase Mercedes in the compact segment. It is the first Mercedes in China to feature touchscreen controls. And it is the first Mercedes with a widescreen navigation display and augmented reality in China,” says Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars.

Also presented on the eve of the show was the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury, which unites the DNA of an SUV with that of a limousine to create an exceptional SUV with a three-box design. The result is a timeless vehicle that underscores the position of Mercedes-Maybach as the ultimate luxury brand.

“More than 60 percent of our Mercedes-Maybach S-Class vehicles go to China. It’s therefore no wonder that this country is a major inspiration to us, especially when it comes to vehicles for top Chinese customers who expect the best of themselves and of their car,” says Hubertus Troska, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for China.

Vehicles celebrating their Asia premieres included the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and its performance variant, the Mercedes-AMG G 63 Edition 1 (fuel consumption, combined: 13.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions, combined: 299 g/km), the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC Edition 1 performance SUV (fuel consumption, combined: 10.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions, combined: 244 g/km), the new CLS, the E-Class Cabriolet and the Mercedes-Maybach S 680 luxury sedan (fuel consumption, combined: 12.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions, combined: 289 g/km),
