2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Introducing the re-imagined 2012 C-Class. Elegance has never been so powerful. The C-Class takes to the road with a 1.8 liter tubro-4 or choose the smooth V6. Both with the world’s first 7-speed automatic transmission. Offering a refreshing poise of comfort-tuned agility control suspension and available 4Matic All Wheel Drive. Refined in every sense the 2012 C-Class is sportier more luxurious and exquisitely crafted. Feast your eyes on the large color-LCD screen with hard-drive navigation and the cant-miss panorama roof. With an ongoing legacy of safety innovation the C-Class provides exclusive innovations in driving security including post-collision response emergency sensing and Advanced restraints including 11-way air bag protection. Unmatched technology. Unrivaled style. The 2012 C-Class.
