The Mercedes-Benz W205 is a compact executive car which is being produced by the German automaker Mercedes-Benz from 2014, under the C-Class model names. The W205 was preceded by the W204. The W205 is available in sedan (W205) and station wagon (S205) configurations.

The W205 is the first car to use the all-new Modular Rear-wheel drive Architecture (MRA) platform. The new structure is significantly lighter using aluminum extensively throughout the body, resulting in a 100-kilogram (220 lb) weight decrease. According to Mercedes-Benz, the structure will be much more rigid than other vehicles in its class.

Overview Edit

The car was officially unveiled on 16 December 2013 at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. W205 production commenced on 4 February 2014 at the Bremenplant. European sales began in March 2014, while the vehicle went on sale in North America in September 2014, and in South Africa in March 2015.

As the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class (released in April 2013) took the mantle of being the new entry-level sedan in Mercedes' line up of cars, Mercedes decided to make the W205 C-Class larger than its predecessor and more like the W222 S-Class, thus making it a "mini-S-Class".

It includes Sport and Luxury trims with 241-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine and 329-hp 3.0-liter bi-turbo V6 engine options. Mercedes all-wheel drive 4MATIC is standard across the initial offering. The car is about 3.7 inches (94 mm) longer and 1.7 inches (43 mm) wider than the W204.

Based on the new modular MRA rear-wheel drive platform, it features front axlefour-link and rear axle five-link suspension.

Initial versions Edit

C 350 e Plug-in Hybrid (2015–present) Edit

A plug-in hybrid version was introduced at the January 2015 North American International Auto Show, and it will be available in both Saloon and Estate variants. The C 350 e plug-in hybrid is powered by a four-cylinder gasoline engine, in conjunction with a 60 kW electric motor, delivering a total system output of 205 kW (279 hp) and torque of 600 Nm (443 lb-ft). The motor is powered by 6.2 kWh lithium-ion battery expected to deliver an all-electric rangeof 31 km (19 mi), CO2 emissions of 48g/km and a fuel consumption of 2.1 l/100 km (130 mpg-imp; 110 mpg-US) under the New European Driving Cycle(NEDC). Sales are scheduled to begin in Europe in March 2015.

C-Class coupe (2015–present) Edit

Debuted at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show, the appearance of the C-Class coupe leans heavily on that of the 2014 C-Class saloon. The two share the same basic front-end styling treatment though to the leading edge of the doors. From there back, the second-generation C-Class Coupé closely mimics the design of the 2014 S-Class Coupé.

Key exterior design elements include uniquely shaped headlights, a bold grille with diamond-shaped inserts, prominent front wheel arch flares, strong structure to the flanks, heavily plunging roofline, prominent hunches over the rear wheel arches, a generously tapered glasshouse, acutely angled rear window, high-set bootlid, horizontally mounted tail-lights and trapezoidal tailpipes integrated into the lower section of the rear bumper.

The interior uses the same stylish dashboard and switchgear as the 2014 C-Class saloon, but the C-Class coupe receives unique front sports seats with integral headrests as well as two individual rear seats. There is also a standard automatic belt feeder similar to that used by the 2014 E-Class coupé.

A Bluetooth-compatible entertainment system allowing internet capability through a mobile phone will be standard. Also included is the Attention Assist function, which warns the driver of inattentiveness and drowsiness. It is joined by Collision Prevention Assist, which is able to carry out autonomous braking at speeds up to 124mph in combination with a further standard system called Adaptive Brake Assist.

As part of Mercedes-Benz's efforts to establish itself at the forefront of autonomous driving technology, the 2015 C-Class Coupé also comes with an optional Distronic Plus system. It enables the Coupé to autonomously steer in order to remain in its lane at speeds between 0 and 124mph.

AMG models Edit

AMG C 63/C 63 S (2015–present) Edit

The AMG C 63 uses a similar 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 to the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car. Mercedes offers it with two outputs: 469 hp and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque for the C 63 and 503 hp and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque for the more potent C 63 S. By moving to the downsized and turbocharged engine, Mercedes claims the W205 version consumes 32 percent less fuel than the model it replaced. But in fact, it uses 50% more fuel than advertised.

The C 63 should also be able to complete the 0-62 MPH sprint (100 km/h) in 4.1 seconds with a top speed limited to 155 MPH, and 4.0 seconds in the S with a top speed of 180 MPH with a special request from AMG to raise the speed limiter.[16] The car still uses a seven-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels and gets three-stage adaptive dampers specific to AMG models along with speed-sensitive variable steering. High-performance brakes are also a part of the package with 390-mm discs in front and 360-mm discs in the rear. On both ends of the car there are red AMG-branded calipers to squeeze those discs. Its first deliveries took place in early 2015 for the European market with a U.S. debut later in the year.

C 450 AMG Sport 4MATIC or Mercedes-AMG C 43 Edit

Although argued over and over whether this model is an AMG or not, MBUSA website considers this an AMG model. The C 450 AMG Sport 4Matic replaced the C 400 4Matic. It has a twin-turbo 3.0 litre V6 generating 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. Some components, such as the front axle, steering system and suspension are shared with the C 63. It is all-wheel drive with a 7-speed automatic transmission. It reaches 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) in 4.9 seconds. The model is referred to as the Mercedes-AMG C 43 in European markets.

AMG C 63/C 63 S Coupe (2016–present) Edit

Mercedes-Benz also revealed the high-performance C 63 coupe from Mercedes-AMG at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. The C 63 coupe features a number of distinct design elements to set it apart from its tamer sibling. The most obvious is the aggressive front bumper, which features larger scoops to feed more air to the car's twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 as well as to its high-performance brakes. The grille is also unique, and the hood features some muscular ripples that the regular C-Class Coupe doesn't.

The C 63 coupe also benefits from a wider track, as evidenced by the pumped wheel arches. The wheels are also bigger on the Mercedes-AMG model with 19 inches in diameter. The C-Class Coupe comes with 18-in wheels as standard.

The mechanical package is pretty much identical to the C 63 sedan. This means 469 horsepower in the C 63 coupe and 503 hp for the S-badged model. Drive will be to the rear wheels only, via a paddle-shifted, seven-speed automatic transmission.
