Mercedes C-Class

Mercedes C Class

The Mercedes C Class has sneaked onto the Scheme. Only avaialble as a C180, powered by the 1.6 litre petrol engine shared with Renault, and only in base SE trim. This may sound a little disappointing but following the upgrades to the C-Class last year the SE trim is now very well appointed, Artico (man made) leather seats, 10.25 inch infotainment screen with Sat nav, DAB radio and reversing camera, 17 inch Alloy wheels, heated front seats, Active Park Assist, Cruise control, auto headlamps and wipers, power folding wing mirrors and a driver select driving mode. The only extras you may need to add are the Apple Carplay/Android Auto at £275 and privacy glass at £385. The Premium packs are not available on the SE trim. The engine is a surprise too, the 154 brake horse power 1.6 litre petrol can reach 62 miles per hour in 8.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 140 miles per hour, very impressive. Economy from the 6 speed manual gearbox is a claimed 47.1 miles per gallon or 44.1 mpg from the 9 speed automatic.

The Estate car has an electric tailgate and a higher roofline, it also increases the load carrying capacity from 480 litres in the saloon to 490 litres with the advantage of easier access. Drop the rear seats, which you can do from the boot, and you open up 1510 litres of space.
