Model News

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been totally redesigned for 2015. The new C-Class is sharply styled and looks very similar to its larger, more expensive sibling, the S-Class. The C-Class also inherits much of that vehicle's technology, helping to make it both safer and more comfortable than before. This year's redesign also benefits from two brand new engines for the C-Class.


Model Highlights

The 2015 C-Class is offered in two basic trims, the C300 4MATIC and the C400 4MATIC. As their names imply, both new C-Class models are all-wheel drive, though in the coming years Mercedes-Benz expects to expand the C-Class line to include more variants, including rear-wheel drive offerings. The C300 is powered by a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine displacing 2.0L and making a stout 241 hp. The C400 is powered by a 3.0L turbocharged 6-cylinder making 329 horsepower. In either form, the only transmission available is an efficient 7-speed automatic, which uses its many ratios to keep fuel economy reasonable. Even when equipped with its all-wheel drive, the C300 is rated at 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

Like most European luxury cars, the C-Class can be optioned up with a huge variety of convenience and luxury features. However the base model C300 4Matic does come with quite a few amenities on its own. Standard features include a 14-way power adjustable driver's seat, dual-zone climate control, two high resolution screens with a touchpad interface, USB connectivity, Bluetooth audio streaming, and LED daytime running lamps.

The C400 4MATIC includes everything on the C300 4MATIC plus a Burmester premium sound system, heated front seats, sport tuned suspension, 18-inch wheels and of course, a bigger, more-powerful engine.

An optional Interior Package adds leather seating, perforated and ventilated front seats, a powered front passenger seat and some additional interior lighting. An Air-Balance Package further spruces up the interior environment with an air purifier and a cabin fragrance system that will perfume the air in the C-Class.

A Multimedia Package includes a navigation system, as well as a rear view camera and SiriusXM satellite radio.

An adjustable air suspension system that can be set for sport of for comfort is available on the C-Class as is a Driver's Assistance Package which includes safety features such as blind spot assist and Mercedes-Benz' PRE-SAFE system, which can actually activate the brakes on its own, should it detect an impending accident.

Standard safety equipment on C-Class models includes nine airbags as well as adaptive braking technology, attention assist and of course all-wheel drive is available.


Value Writeup

The C-Class has traditionally been Mercedes-Benz' entry-level car. However with the arrival of the CLA, the C-Class is no longer the German automaker's least expensive model. Mercedes-Benz has packed the 2015 C-Class full of upscale technology, determined to make the car feel anything but entry level. Despite this move upmarket, pricing on the C-Class remains competitive with other European small sedans such as the BMW 3-series. The 2015 C-Class starts at around $40,000.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2015 C300 4Matic and C400 4Matic vehicles manufactured March 28, 2014, to September 18, 2014. If the steering coupling interlock mechanism is not locked in place, the sliding shaft, which is part of the steering column, could become disengaged from the steering coupling socket due to vibrations, steering thrust, or load feedback from the road surface.

Consequence
If the sliding shaft becomes disengaged from the steering coupling socket, the driver may experience noises, steering backlash, and in a worst case, loss of steering control, which may increase the risk of a crash.

MBUSA has notified owners, and dealers will inspect the steering coupling interlock mechanism to verify that it is in the locked position, free of charge. The recall began on October 1, 2014. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372. MBUSA's number for this recall is 2014090008.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2015 C300 and C400 vehicles manufactured from June 18, 2014, through September 5, 2014, that fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." The affected vehicles were assembled with horizontal adjustment mechanisms that allow the owner to change the horizontal adjustment used during the manufacturing process, instead of the proper sealing caps.

Consequence
If the original horizontal adjustment is used to alter the low beam aim, the misaimed headlamp may not properly illuminated the road or cause increased glare to oncoming drivers, which increases the risk of a crash.

Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the horizontal adjustment mechanisms on the headlamps with sealing caps on the affected vehicles. The recall began May 23, 2016. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-800-367-6372.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2015 C300 4matic and C400 4matic vehicles manufactured April 7, 2014, to July 25, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the fuel delivery module may be improperly secured to the fuel tank. Secondly, electrical wires that connect to the fuel delivery module might have been pinched between the flange of the fuel delivery module and the tank.

Consequence
If the locking plate is not properly secured to the fuel delivery module it may become loose, and leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire. If the electrical wires are pinched, the fuel pump may stop working, resulting in a stall, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles for improperly secured locking plates and pinched wires, correcting the vehicles as necessary, free of charge. The recal began on April 24, 2015. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372. MBUSA's number for this recall is 2015030004.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2015 C300 and C400 4matic sedans manufactured January 27, 2014, to December 1, 2014. Due to an error in the electric power steering control unit software, the affected vehicles may have a loss of electric power steering assist.

Consequence
If the vehicle experiences a loss of power steering assist, extra steering effort will be required, especially at lower speeds, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the power steering software, free of charge. The recall began in January 15, 2016. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
