Enjoy S-Class comfort levels for a fraction of the cost with a new Mercedes-Benz C-Class lease

Class-leading comfort is the ambition for Mercedes-Benz as they make some sizeable upgrades to one of their most popular models. 

After they were first announced back in February, the revitalised Mercedes C-Class Saloon and C-Class Estate variants are poised to hit the UK market and they promise to be something quite special.

Thanks to several eye-catching changes, this new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has drawn comparisons to the refined and luxurious S-Class, which will be music to the ears of anyone considering a new Mercedes lease

Subtle changes to the exterior

You'll note that there are no dramatic changes to the exterior of the new C-Class models, but it is the intricate details that give these cars a smoother look.

Perhaps the most noticeable changes come in the form of the new-look headlights. They are slightly smaller than previous models, while at the rear the big circular lights are a thing of the past. Instead, they have been replaced with sleek, angular lights that run through the rear, resulting in a much smarter appearance.  

Sharing similarities to the design we see on a Mercedes CLS, the new look is less muscular, but more refined and elegant.

Choose an AMG line model and you’ll enjoy a stunning grille that is comprised of tiny silver arrow logos that play a starring role in the new-look front bumper.

S-Class interior moves down to add new layers of luxury

Mercedes-Benz have made great strides in the interior of the new C-Class models, which look incredibly similar to what is currently on offer in the S-Class.

The latter is notoriously known for its impeccable luxury and abundance of technology, so how does all of this fit into a smaller (and far less expensive) C-Class?

The C-Class gets the S-Class's large infotainment system (9.5inch as standard) with the upgraded and improved MBUX software. This solves one of the major complaints that was previously thrown at the C-Class range, with the previous touchscreen looking somewhat out of place in the cabin.

As well as the main infotainment screen, you also get a new second screen behind the steering wheel that houses the digital driver's display.

Your main infotainment screen sits at the heart of a dashboard that runs effortlessly through the cabin and into the centre console. While the ambient lighting adds another element of luxury and neatly ties everything together to ensure nothing looks out of place.

Whether you're getting behind the wheel of a Mercedes C-Class, BMW 3 Series or an Audi A4, you won't be short of quality. All three models are renowned for their build quality and luxurious interiors.

BMW’s iDrive system has long held them above their rivals as one of the go-to executive cars, but the rejuvenated C-Class models will be hoping their new look can help claw back some of that popularity.

While the usability of BMW’s iDrive cannot be questioned, Mercedes have opted for a different route, with a sleeker and more refined look.

Bigger C-Class models result in a welcoming environment

Mercedes haven’t only made improvements on the C-Class’ interior, but to the bodywork too. The new wheelbase on the new saloon model is 25mm longer, which results in 21mm more legroom for rear passengers.

There is also increased shoulder space in the rear, while C-Class Estate variants enjoy an extra 30L of luggage space. As well as intricate detailing inside the cabin, it is crucial changes like these that Mercedes hope will elevate the C-Class above some of the very best in the class.

Thanks to a new dynamic suspension, the C-Class also promises a comfortable driving experience that limits road noise.

GLC to benefit in 2022

If you would like to enjoy the impressive technology on offer throughout the new C-Class models, but need a car that's a little bigger, you’re in luck.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC, the SUV equivalent of the C-Class, is due to receive a similar facelift in 2022.

The new and rejuvenated GLC model line will include some of the same technology that has been passed down from the S-Class.

Given how popular the Mercedes-Benz GLC lease deals have been since its launch, it’s unlikely that the pattern will change when it hits the roads.
