Mercedes-Benz SA is spicing up the local C-Class line-up with a new version called the Edition C.

The new edition is set apart on the outside by an AMG Sports Exterior package, as well as LED high performance headlights and taillights and 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels

The Edition C gets its own interior trim combination of open-pore black ash and longitudinal-grain aluminium, and the model is also fitted with a flat-bottomed multifunction sports steering wheel. Additional features include ambient lighting, the Mirror Package and Active Park Control with Parktronic.

The Edition C is available with the full range of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, all mated to the 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

In addition to all the aforementioned features, the Edition C models also gain sports suspension.

The price difference, over the standard models, is R103 200 in the case of C180, C200 and C220d derivatives (which gain 9G-Tronic in the process), and R49 900 for C250, C250d and C300 models.
