2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Interior Features Preview

Luxury, high-grade materials and modern technology within new cabin

    2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Details:
  • Touchpad and head-up display added
  • 220 lb lighter than predecessor
  • GPS-sensitive air conditioning added
  • Intelligent-Drive assists added

The inside of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-class is far beyond what you might expect. With the use of high-grade materials and ultra-modern technology, the only thing that won't surprise you is that it is anything but ordinary.

The new look starts with the center console's completely reinterpreted appearance and freestanding central display. But probably the most anticipated new addition is the touchpad and head-up display. Appearing to float over the hood, the head-up display provides the driver with important information on speed, speed limits, navigation instructions, and messages from the DISTRONIC PLUS. This ensures a less distracted and safer driver.

The entire passenger cabin is made predominantly out of high-strength sheet steel to ensure that each passenger is safely transported inside the new C-Class. At the same time, lightweight optimization is implemented using an aluminum hybrid body, which makes the body and bodyshell around 154 lb lighter than conventional steel. Also the entire vehicle is around 220 lb lighter than its predecessor. These weight savings also attribute to improved fuel economy.

A sensor in the front passenger airbag detects every child seat in the vehicle, which deactivates the airbag. And when the child seats are removed the airbag is reactivated.

Something you used to only see in the S-Class is now available on the new C-Class. The AIR-BALANCE package includes an interesting feature centered on GPS-sensitive air conditioning. The AC not only automatically recirculates but also has tunnel detection using satellite navigation for improved cabin comfort. Another feature seen in the S-Class, now in the C-class, is Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive (accident avoidance and driver safety technologies).

With all the interior and technology based improvements to the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-class, we don't yet know what the exterior will look like. Hopefully it will be at least half as impressive as the inside.
