Lease a Mercedes-benz C Class 220 CDI Blue EFFICIENCY SE from only £392.94 per month plus VAT.
The Mercedes-benz C Class is great to drive, spacious and all models come well equipped with lots of safety kit. The new C Class is much sleeker and sharper than before with Mercedes hoping it will appeal to younger buyers.
The C Class 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY is as quick as the petrol models and offers good power. Average combined fuel economy is 58.9mpg and CO2 emissions are around 127g/km. The top speed of the 220 CDI is 144mph and it will take a time of 8.4 seconds to sprint from 0-62mph. The BlueEFFICIENCY models offer much lower fuel consumption and lower emissions which makes it cheaper to tax too.
The interior of the C Class is stylish with an uncluttered look. There is an easy to read colour screen that shows details of what is on the stereo, satellite navigation and phone and is perfectly situated for the driver to read. The driving position is good with plenty of adjustment for both the seat and steering wheel and visibility is good too. The C Class is very comfortable and the big rear seats and plenty of legroom make long journeys a pleasure and passengers in the back are able to control the temperature thanks to rear heater controls. The C Class is a quiet car but some tyre noise can occasionally be heard when driving on the motorway. For a saloon, the C Class is very practical and the larger boot which is bigger than the BMW 3-Series and Lexus IS is more than capable of carrying a couple of suitcases. There are plenty of storage areas inside and there is a spacious air conditioned glovebox, door bins and an armrest.
The SE model comes with automatic rain sensing wipers, chrome window highlights, electric windows, heated rear windscreen, heated washer nozzles, tinted windows, windscreen wipers with one touch control, ABS, brake assist, parktronic front and rear, trip computer, heated/electric door mirrors with integrated indicators, auxiliary input socket in glovebox, body colour bumpers, automatic headlights, front fog lights, headlamp assist with range adjustment, front centre armrest with storage box, leather steering wheel and gear knob, multi function steering wheel, crash sensor, alarm system with interior protection, automatic door locking, deadlocks, immobiliser and remote central locking. There are many more standard items and further optional items available which can be viewed by clicking on the Mercedes-benz C Class 220 CDI link below.
When it comes to safety Mercedes-benz is first class and therefore is no surprise that the C Class was awarded a maximum five star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests. Seven airbags are standard and the option of the company’s PRE-SAFE system which prepares the car for a crash by linking up the brake assist and electronic stability programme and tensions the seatbelts, adjusts the driver’s seat position and closes the sunroof.
The Mercedes-benz C Class is a very appealing saloon thanks to its sporty and trendy looks. It is great to drive, extremely comfortable and is available with an excellent choice of petrol and diesel engines.
