When a model makes up a quarter of your total sales, there’s no room for error.
It’s the case with the C-Class line-up for Mercedes’ owner Daimler, which is probably why its revised range, now revealed in full, is a carefully judged update making sure it doesn’t mess up an incredibly successful formula.
We’re yet to drive the revised C-Class range, but based on what we know, the improvements are all incremental steps. Depending on the specific model, there are new suspensions and a few subtle chassis tweaks.
Far more notably, and telling of modern-day buyers, it's the infotainment and driving assist systems that have changed the most, with the majority of buyers desiring glossy, big (and easy-to-use) screens and semi-autonomous systems.
