Mercedes-Benz management about the new C-Class
"The C-Class is our bestseller at the heart of the global market"
"The letters C and S sit at opposite ends of the alphabet. However, in our portfolio they’re now moving closer together. The C-Class is already our best-selling saloon. Still, I’m certain our new C-Class will excite even more customers with a wide range of high-tech features derived from our flagship S-Class. With the latest generation MBUX, rear-axle steering and comprehensive electrification, our most successful model range will once again raise the bar as the most sophisticated offering in its segment".
Ola Källenius, CEO of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG
"Our customers have always loved the C-Class, because it has always been top with regard to comfort and technology as well as to spaciousness and design. That is substantiated by over 10.5 million units sold since 1982. With the latest edition, we are taking the next logical step on our road to the digital and sustainable future with a host of innovations and cutting-edge digital elements. Be it the Saloon or the Estate model – our customers have the possibility to customise the C-Class in order to turn it into a personal comfort zone".
Britta Seeger, Member of the Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG Boards of Management, Marketing & Sales
"Driving on electric power in everyday life and using the hybrid powertrain on long distances: The new C-Class is flexible, saves resources and as a plug-in hybrid runs for more than 100 kilometres on electric power - a clear benchmark. This too is part of our Ambition 2039 on the road to climate-neutrality".
Markus Schäfer, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG; Daimler Group Research and COO Mercedes-Benz Cars
"After its introduction in the S-Class, the second generation of MBUX already débuts in new C-Class. All the possibilities for intuitive operation and personalisation have been adopted, plus driver-orientation as a new feature specific to the model series: the dashboard and central display are slightly tilted towards the driver, underlining the sportiness of the C-Class as a first in a Mercedes-Benz passenger car".
Georges Massing, Senior Manager Digital Vehicle and Mobility, Mercedes-Benz AG
"We have created the most stylish and exclusive C-Class ever applying our company's style of 'Sensual Purity'. We create desire through the aesthetic beauty of sensuous surfaces, perfect sporty proportions, and an extraordinary ambience in the interior".
Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler Group
"The new C-Class redefines its segment in several respects at once: the comfortable spaciousness in the rear, the interior ambience and the high-quality workmanship. Plus there are equipment and comfort features from higher categories such as, for example, the rear-axle steering or DIGITAL LIGHT".
