Breaking: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan

Facelift

Mercedes-Benz has just released details of their facelifted 2012 C-Class Sedan. Described as a "comprehensive makeover," the main exterior changes are the front and rear end styling that have now taken on the latest design language from the rest of the lineup. Perhaps the biggest changes are inside with an all-new dashboard featuring a "premium fine-grain finish...and a high-resolution color display in the instrument cluster."

Fuel economy has also been improved by some 15 percent thanks to the new-direct injected engines along with a redesigned 7-speed automatic transmission. Speaking of engines, the U.S. lineup will consist of a 1.8-literTurbo I4 with 201 hp in the C250 RWD trim, a 3.0 liter V6 with 228 hp for the C300 4MATIC, and a 3.5 liter V6 with 302 hp for the C350 RWD. We're still awaiting final U.S. pricing, but the 2012 European C-Class starts at €32,695.25 and we don't expect the price to change dramatically from the 2011 model.
