The C Class has long been a stalwart of Mercedes’s compact executive class. And, as always, the Mercedes–Benz line-up has catered to those who want the fastest and most agile variation, usually in the form of a hard-core AMG model. But, for those who want the speed of the C63, but would also like to retain some of the dynamics, composure and comfort that Mercedes-Benz is renowned for, then the C450 makes an ideal and niche model offering. The C450 blends the comfort of a C300 sedan with a great deal of power. Overall output is slightly less than the base C63, but with a turbocharged V6 engine and a 0-60 time of 4.8 seconds, the Mercedes-Benz C450 is no slouch at all.
The interior of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 has been highly-spec’d from the factory and includes the added Mercedes-Benz Designo package which includes two-tone diamond-stitched leather seats. This C450 also includes a host of comfort and convenience packages, which includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Parking Assist, Active Lane Keep Assist, 360-degree camera system and a heads-up display. You can choose to fill the cabin with light or have an open-air experience with the added Panoramic sun-roof too. Exterior-wise this 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 comes with the AMG Styling Package, AMG Carbon Fiber Exterior Package and the Night Package. It also features 19” double-spoke AMG wheels.
The Engine fitted to this 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 is a 3-liter twin-turbo V6 which puts out 362 bhp. Power is transmitted to the ground via a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system and an AMG “Speedshift” 7-Speed transmission. This car has also been outfitted with an Armytrix Valvetronic exhaust system, which allows the user to adjust the note and volume of the car’s exhaust on the fly.
