Weststar Associates Limited, the Authorised General Distributor of Mercedes-Benz vehicles in Nigeria, has said that the alluring features of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class were what endeared the vehicle to numerous auto enthusiasts globally.

The auto distribution company said it was based on the efficiency and the dynamism of the C-class that made the preceding model, which was launched globally in 2007, to record total sales of more than 2.4 million.

Weststar said it was no news that the Mercedes-Benz C-Class delivers impressive driving dynamics and takes aesthetic motion to a new level, thereby setting standards for the medium size category on many fronts, explaining that its great load capacity, sensuously clear design, sporty interior and high class appeal, represent a clear lifestyle of elegance and ultimate refinement. “The C-Class has a breathtakingly beautiful face with an aerodynamic design for even more efficient motoring. It is also equipped with new suspension technology and many innovative system options.

“The German brand continues to push for more fresh and youthful interior designs. The vehicle’s character has clear design and high quality interior. It has been designed on a cost-conscious fence with the Mercedes-Benz family, balancing enough luxury to justify the three pointed star with the affordability to make it the most popular model in the range. The front section defined by design and equipment line – including classic 3D radiator grille or sporty design with central star – features large air intakes and sharply defined headlamp contours (day and night) to present the self-assured classic face of the new C-Class Saloon,” Weststar noted.

The auto distribution company also noted that the strong visual impact of the C-Class Saloon exterior continued in the interior, explaining that high-quality finish and materials, cultured sports styling, a tasteful colour scheme and intelligent details, create an atmosphere of easy poise and assurance.

It said that the brand had used premium materials for the door paneling and the instrument panel, which it said, add to the overall unmistakable feeling of modern luxury.







“The efficient and high performance engineering incorporated in this car delivers a higher level of driving pleasure. In the petrol range, the output of the entry-level C 180 is 115 kW/156 hp with a maximum torque of 4.5 percent from 220 to 250 Newton metres, and an output of 135Kw/184 hp with a torque peak of 300 Newton metres from 28100 rpm for the C 200. The engines considerably improve the performance and fuel consumption of the four-cyclinder models. When accelerating from standstill to 100 km/h, the C 200 is 0.5 seconds faster than its predecessor.

“The C- Class model incorporates a raft of further measures that help reduce the impact on the environment. The petrol engine measures such as the combination of exhaust gas turbo charging with direct injection and an enhanced combustion process reduce both fuel consumption and emissions,” it said.

On safety device in the vehicle, Weststar said that Mercedes-Benz had all C-Class models fitted with nine airbags, Agility Control with selective damping system, LED headlamps and, a first for the class, autonomous emergency braking as standard.

The model, it said, offers a clear design and a host of technical innovations, exemplary emission and fuel consumption values that set a new standard for affordability in the luxury market- thanks to the Eco Start/Stop function, as well as a comprehensive scope of standard equipment such as the Mirror Package with its electrical folding exterior mirrors, and interior and exterior automatic dimming mirrors.

Weststar said the C-Class is available at any of its dealerships in the country.
