Mercedes-Benz reveals updated C-Class line-up

Mercedes-Benz S300

The base model's new LED headlights and familiar boxy shape remain, while Mercedes has slotted in its Panamericana grille design; made famous from the AMG GT coupe.

Inside, the G63 adds some sporty touches to the new model's already impressive redesigned interior, most obvious of which is a new flat-bottomed leather AMG steering wheel, complete with metal gearshift paddles.

The 2019 Mercedes-Maybach sedans will make their world debut in March at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and are expected to reach U.S. rooms this summer.

The Mercedes C-Class ended 2017 as the UK's eighth best-selling auto overall; now the German brand has revealed the first details on the heavily revised version of the vehicle that will go on sale here in the second half of this year. Those are good for 0-60 sprints of 4.8 and 4.6 seconds, respectively. That output is delivered to all four wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission. Expect to see it on sale in the United States late this summer.

United Kingdom pricing and full specification will be revealed at the end of March, with first cars arriving from August 2018. Comfort, Sport, Eco and configurable Individual modes feature, along with optional G-Mode, which optimises the G-Class for off-road use. A new plug-in hybrid model will headline the updates, with an all-electric range 30-40 miles and low, BiK-friendly emissions.

Prices for the top-model G-Class has not yet been revealed.

The 2019 Mercedes-Maybach sedan will debut at the Geneva motor show next month. The larger exterior dimensions also translate to more leg, shoulder, and elbow room in the front and rear seats. Buyers can now opt for the 10.25-inch COMAND display screen, along with the 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster.

Further changes to the big four-door include a distinctive new two-tone paint scheme. The main markets are China, Russia and the USA.

As with the more mainstream version of the G-Wagen, the 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 has been stretched 4 inches nose to tail, while it is now 4.8 inches wider and 1.6 inches taller. There's electric adjustment for the driver's seat with memory function and, if you plump for the (as yet unpriced) mulitcontour seats then you'll get all sorts of things like massage function, adjustable lumbar support, heating and cooling and more.
