C-Class Power and Performance is Top of the Line

You’ll understand that 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class performance is a cut above before even slipping inside. With muscular lines and seamless profile, it’s a vehicle that instantly evokes power, grace, and a total command of the road. Whether taking tight corners between Frontenac and Edwardsville or accelerating from standstill in the center of Clayton, expect to turn heads and feel your senses come alive. Performance is optimized through the following standard and available features:

  • Sport Suspension: Sport tuned springs and shock absorbers work with enhanced kinematics and a 15-mm lower ride height for ultra-precise handling and intimate feedback.
  • Sport Brake System: Upgrade your standard brakes with perforated front brake discs, ventilated rear discs, and painted front calipers with “Mercedes-Benz” lettering
  • Torque Vectoring Brake: When the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) detects understeer, braking pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel and torque distribution is shifted to favor the outside wheel
  • Selective Damping System: Engineered for performance driving, selective damping adjusts individual shock absorbers automatically based around road surface and driver behavior. Individual shock absorber valving produces sharper handling feedback and reduces damping rates
  • 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive: Head out regardless of terrain type or weather conditions. Always engaged, 4MATIC® monitors for wheel slip and responds instantly by sending torque to the wheel with the best grip
