Check Out 2019 Mercedes Benz C-Class Semi Autonomous Tech

The 2019 Mercedes C-Class is upping its game with semi-autonomous driving technology.

Cosmetically, the C-Class will get a facelift to bring the big Mercedes symbol to the front grille while also getting a redesign rear bumper. The headlights will also come as standard LEDs, finally catching up with home decor technology from practically a decade ago.

Those LEDs don’t just end at the head and tail lamps. There’s an optional intelligent light system with High-Performance headlamps and Ultra Wide high beams to go along with them too.

The wheels are standard 17-inches with twin five-spoke rims, and 2019 also brings two all-new exterior color options for the C-Class: Mojave Silver Metallic and Emerald Green Metallic. If you want to stand out among executive cars, metallic green will definitely make a statement.

Trim levels start to diverge more when you get inside the car. The base level comes with a five and a half inch center console that you can upgrade to seven or 10.25 inches depending on how much you want to spend. The gauges are all on a 12.3-inch screen which comes with three display options: Classic, Sport, and Progressive. The center console can also switch between said options, allowing you to customize your digital interaction with the car.

The driver’s hands will grip an all-new leather steering wheel with center console touchpad and haptic feedback which should mostly eliminate the need for the driver to take their hands off the wheel.

All the impressive technology that Mercedes unveiled on the larger E-Class will now make their way to the C-Class, along with Active Lane Change Assist, Active Emergency Stop Assist. Real-time updating GPS gives the C-Class the last ingredient it needs to implement a semi-autonomous drive mode which allows the car to stay in its lane and handle curves and bends without slamming into the guide rail.

But as with all driver-assist technology, don’t rely on it entirely. There’s a ton of smashed Teslas to attest to that truism.

The C-Class makes its world debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March and is expected to go on sale in the fourth quarter.
