Completing the powertrain is a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.
As for the exterior, you’ll get a set of newly designed 18-inch multi-spoke wheels, twin tailpipe exhaust system and newly-designed LED High Performance headlamps, to go with a more aggressive front and rear bumper design.

Unlike the previous C300, the new car gets the grille from the pre-facelift C43 AMG 4MATIC, along with 19-inch five twin spoke AMG wheels, Multibeam LED headlamps, and of course the AMG Line bits.
Inside, you get similar displays from the C200 but it’s more plush with Nappa leather, black open pore ash wood trim, a panoramic sunroof, a Burmester Sound System. The interior can be had in either black, brown or red. Also new to the C300 is the Active Lane Keeping Assist system.
