2018 Mercedes C-Class Priced From £33,180 In The UK

Mercedes UK has opened the order books for the refreshed C-Class Saloon and Estate models, while at the same time revealing how much they cost.

The facelifted C-Class is priced from £33,180, landing you the petrol-powered C200 SE Saloon model, while the Estate version, with the same engine, starts from £34,380. The more powerful version of the C-Class this side of a C63, aka the AMG C43, starts from £49,675 in Saloon form, while the Estate starts at £50,875.

Instead of simply redesigning a few bits and bobs, Mercedes took the opportunity to introduce a range of new, more efficient petrol and diesel powertrains, as well as more modern tech inside the cabin.

Customers can now opt for a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, with the infotainment system also getting a much needed refresh, now featuring a 10.25-inch display.

New Mild-Hybrid Powertrain For The Updated C200

The facelifted Mercedes C-Class will be available with three powertrain choices in the C200, C220d and the AMG C43. The C200, which is available in both rear- and all-wheel drive versions, now features an all-new 1.5-liter petrol engine that’s sitting at the heart of a mild hybrid powertrain. The new engine works together with belt-driven starter/alternator, branded as EQ Boost, which adds 14hp to the total output of 181hp (184PS) and 206lb-ft (280Nm) of peak torque.

Mercedes says that the new mild-hybrid C200 is now returning up to 46.3 mpg UK (4Matic: 42.2 mpg UK) on the combined cycle while emitting 136g/km of CO2 (4Matic: 148g/km).

The single diesel variant, the C220d, uses the same 2.0-liter engine that debuted in the E-Class. It produces 191hp (194PS) and 295lb-ft (400Nm) and returns an average of 61.4 mpg UK and CO2 emissions from 117g/km.

Sales of the new Mercedes C-Class have already started, with the first deliveries expected to arrive in July.
