The Junior Executive Benz of Choice
Mercedes-Benz C180 2014 model is the sleekest sedan on the road. Famous for its stunning and beautifully crafted interior with refined noise and increased fuel efficiency with great aerodynamics, this car is attractive and is not a let down from the Daimler AG group.
In review Mercedes-Benz C180 2014 model looks like a smaller S-class limo, with a reduced length to measure 95mm, it is also slightly lighter than the S class variety in that it uses five times the aluminum metal reducing its weight by a 100kgs. It features a hard plastic center console, with leather seats and all round tactile surfaces that are such a good feel to the hands.
The window switches of the Mercedes-Benz C180 2014 model though borrowed from the S class have an unbelievably good experience to work with. As usual, the glove box has the perfume dispenser that dispenses great scents that we are used to in the S class. The beautifully designed cabin with wood veneers, gloss plastics, and genuine metal, give a nice finishing to the upholstery and trims of the upper door and interior features.
It has a beautiful color matching that is consistent all through, the trims and upholstery; the dash is designed in a wavy pattern bringing synergy in the whole interior design. There are five 5 air vents at the front and a pair of stylish vents at the back seats, used for cooling and heating passengers. The back seats are well angled to give passengers enough space for their knees and legs. It has an apple inspired infotainment screen which is slightly raised from the dashboard, sort of like it’s floating, which works well with the designer’s need to conserve the dashboard’s height.
The command system of the Mercedes-Benz C180 2014 combines a touchpad created over a rotary dial and you can use your fingers to switch between functions and access menu choices. It has command satellite navigation I drivers map system that can be rather slow on roundabouts due to the inability to keep up with the position of the car. It has both standard and air suspension options, and both ride well. It has better fuel economy 4.3ltrs per 100km.
It is the most slippery shaped of the C class and combined with great aerodynamics; it spots a radiator with shutter, which when closed assist in cooling regulation of the engine.
