Mercedes-Benz has recently announced the introduction of a new entry-level version for the new generation of the C-Class, the C160.
The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is getting ready to become more affordable than ever with the addition of a new entry-level version, the C160. The announcement has been made by the car manufacturer and it seems that this will be available either as a sedan or as a wagon, with the deliveries being announced for June. For the sedan variant, customers will have to pay 31,683 euros, while the wagon will be setting you back for 33,349 euros.
The Mercedes-Benz C160 will be using a 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine. This less powerful than the previous entry-level gasoline model and it is now capable of producing a total output of 129 HP (95 kW), a 27 HP (20 kW) increased compared to the C180, the previous base gasoline model. The unit is connected exclusively to the 6-speed manual transmission, as the 7G-TRONIC PLUS transmission will not become available for it.
Additional details on the model in question are limited at this time but don’t expect drastic differences between this and the previous entry-level vehicle because this will still be a C-Class. In other news, the new generation of the midsize vehicle will be growing with a coupe version, which will be offered later on this year, while the convertible will be joining in 2016. A four-door coupe, similar to the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe, might also be introduced.
