Whenever a vehicle is redesigned, many opinions are manifested from fear of change and excitement of innovation. Some people don't think things should be fixed unless they are broken. Others believe that growth and innovation are the most important aspects of any product. Mercedes-Benz belongs to the second group. Although the C400 is one of the most popular C-Class variants, Mercedes-Benz updated it with new technology and performance features that prompted a name change. In the case of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, did Mercedes-Benz hit one out of the park, or did it strike out?
It order to better assess that question, we need to take a look at what sets them apart from each other. The C450 is the replacement for the C400, so both sedans still come with a standard 3.0-liter biturbo V6 engine and a 7-speed automatic transmission. The differences between the two dwell inside the engine and the interior comfort category. The engine has been rebuilt to produce 33 more horsepower than the year before, and the interior cabin is now more user friendly and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Outside of the realm of the C450 and C400, there are more new trim options for 2016 that make the 2016 C-Class even more versatile to meet the needs of any and all drivers. Along with the C450, the C350e Plug-In Hybrid and C300d 4MATIC are two brand new C-Class models for the 2016 year. The C300 4MATIC also received some notable improvements from 2015. Among them is a new premium package, The never-before-seen night package, and an optional heated steering wheel. The C350e and the C300d provide unmatched efficiency numbers and still get you to your destination early thanks to the power under the hood and agility of the suspension.
