We’ve talked a little about the new infotainment system and safety features that luxury shoppers will be able to enjoy on the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class that made its debut at the Geneva International Auto Show, but now we have even better news. The attractive compact Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be available for the 2019 model year in sedan, coupe and cabriolet body styles in the U.S., each of which will have upgraded engines. In this blog we are going to look at the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class release date, and the powertrain options drivers will be able to enjoy with these models.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Release Date
All body styles of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class are scheduled to make their dealership debuts by the end of 2018. Look for these models to bring arriving in Houston TX here at Star Motor Cars sometime this year, and be sure to contact a member of our sales team to get personalized updates.
Engine Options on the 2019 C-Class
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be available in three models that we know of so far, each available in sedan, coupe, and cabriolet body styles. The 2019 C 300 and 2019 C 300 4MATIC® will both come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated for 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain offers 14 more horsepower than the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The key difference between these two models is that one comes with Mercedes-Benz 4MATIC® all-wheel drive*.
Drivers with a craving for even more exemplary performance can opt for the 2019 Mercedes-AMG® C 43. This model comes standard with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive and boasts a 3.0-liter V-6 biturbo AMG® engine that cranks out 385 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque.
How fast does the 2019 C-Class go from 0-60?
The 0-60 mph acceleration time of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class depends on the engine, drive style, and body style. Coupe models tend to make the distance fractionally more quickly, and all models have an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph. We aren’t sure at this point about 0-60 times for most sedan models, with the exception of the AMG®, but you can see the coupe and convertible options of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class below.
C 300: Coupe: 5.9 seconds; Cabriolet: 6.1 seconds; Sedan: ??
C 300 4MATIC®: Coupe: 5.9 seconds; Cabriolet: 6.2 seconds; Sedan: ??
Mercedes-AMG®: Coupe: 4.5 seconds; Cabriolet: 4.6 seconds; Sedan: 4.6 seconds
