2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

By luanpa in | November 1, 2010 | (5) Comments

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class a new entry-level four-door sedan. It is the best selling Mercedes-Benz mode. 2011 C-Class lineup features four models – the 451-hp C63 AMG, the 268-hp C350 Sport and the 228-hp C300 Luxury and C300 Sport.

2011 Mercedes-Benz C-Class features both the C-Class’ new nose and a newbody. The 2011 C-Class’ new rear end, which is shared with the Coupe. In fact, the only major difference we can see between the new Coupe and Sedan is between the B- and C -pillars, where the Coupe obviously has no second row of doors, both Sport models are now equipped with LED daytime running lights and black inlays around the headlights, and all C-Class models come with new headlight control switches and ESP controls relocated to the instrument cluster.

Luxury models wear the iconic three-pointed star perched on top of the front hood, the C-Class Sport can be identified by a bold star in the front grille – usually reserved for its coupes and convertibles. Sport models also come with standard AMG styling, including deeper front and rear aprons as well as sculpted rocker panels.

The Sport features staggered-width, five-spoke 17-inch wheels; sport shocks; springs and stabilizer bars that provide a crisper ride and more than a half-inch lower ride height. Instead of the Luxury model’s traditional four-spoke wheel and burl walnut trim, Sport models come with three-spoke steering wheels and a choice of aluminum, burl walnut or black birds eye maple interior trim. The C300 Sport features a slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission.

All C-Class models boast Agility Control, which provides the benefits of both soft and stiff shock absorbers. Each twin-tube shock absorber is fitted with a hydraulic by-pass piston that acts like a very soft shock absorber to effectively dampen road noise and tire vibration. However, over bumpy or uneven roads, the by-pass piston is out of the picture, which preserves the outstanding steering and handling response of a stiffer shock absorber.

2011 models would carryover the 2010 model’s 225-horsepower 3.0-liter V-6, 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 and 451-horsepower V-8 in the AMG model, all of which will likely carryover to the Coupe.

Mercedes-Benz wouldn’t be complete without an AMG version to spice things up a bit? Not this one, as a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 is likely on the menu along with the expected suspension and braking upgrades.
