Mercedes-Benz C-Class Receives S-Class Inspired Ambient Lighting

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is now available with a selection of components inspired by the range-topping S-Class as part of the ‘Ambience Pack’.

Available to purchase since October 6, the Ambience Pack combines the seat comfort package with heat and sound-absorbing acoustic glass and ambient lighting.

The seat comfort package consists of plush driver and front passenger seats with electro-pneumatic 4-way lumbar support and multiple modes of adjustment. The comfort of passenger is increased further by the acoustic glass which Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog says reduces cockpit noise by up to 10 decibels.

As for the ambient lighting, it was first introduced by the S-Class before trickling down to the E-Class and now the C-Class. It consists of 3 selectable colors and five different brightness levels and adds some opulence to the door panels, center console, door sill trims, cupholders and footwells.

All derivatives of the C-Class can be optioned with the Ambience Pack.

    I do quite enjoy these interiors.

    3 colors? Any reason why they couldn’t just offer all 64 like in E-class? Or at least 6 like in the rest of Merc line-up?

    • BGM

      They think: *you want the other 61 colors which would cost us absolutely NOTHING to give you? Pay $20K more to upgrade to the next class*. All car companies do this to a degree or another.

      In this regard I reserve a special place in hell for Honda. They put on annoying and dangerous high beam based DRLs in their cars. But, if you pay more for an upgrade, they give you thing led strips instead. Still unnecessary but they look better and don’t blind other drivers with glare. They cost next to nothing but they just won’t put them on as standard.

  • Obsequious Lickspittle

    Look at that stupid tablet wasting the dash look.

  • Elmediterraneo

    The ambient lighting of the C and S class are still from an old generation. The new E-class had the new one with 61 combinations and it will be available on the facelifted 2017 S-class and 2018 C-class.
