Mercedes-Benz. You know the name. You know the reputation. You don’t need to be told about their elite team of engineers; you’ve seen their work in action. You don’t need to be told of their commitment to safety; unbiased research confirms that their vehicles are among the safest on the road. You don’t need to be told that Mercedes-Benz sets the standard for automotive excellence; that’s known the world over.
If you are in the market for a new stylish car in Columbus, OH, all you need to know is what the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has in store for you.
What is New for 2018?
Mercedes-Benz believes that if you are not improving, then you are falling behind. The C-Class’s new 9G-TRONIC transmission is the first premium 9-speed transmission to offer a hydrodynamic torque converter. It is an upgrade from the 2017 model’s 7-speed transmission (although those at our Mercedes-Benz dealership think both models are fantastic).
Technical jargon is impressive, but what does this mean for the driver? Dependability, comfort, and performance. This revolutionary transmission works quietly to give you one of the best driving experiences available.
Additionally, a Dynamic Select feature allows you to customize the vehicle’s performance based on your desires. One situation may call for a sportier ride while another might warrant for the fuel-efficient “ECO” mode. This level of customization makes the new C-Class among the most versatile cars in the luxury sedan class.
