The biggest difference is that the popular C-Class now comes with an entry-level ‘S’ specification. This is £2,000 cheaper than the SE model.
It means that the C-Class undercuts key rivals from BMW and Audi noticeably on price, with the C180 S starting from £29,040.
While not coming with particularly luxurious levels of equipment, it still gets 17-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors and a reversing camera.
Further up the range, a new Sport Edition grade has been introduced, which adds features such as multibeam LED headlights and 18-inch alloy wheel. The most popular AMG Line grade has also been revised.
Notable changes have also been made to the CLS four-door coupe, which sees the introduction of a new four-cylinder engine into the line-up. It also becomes the range’s exclusive rear-driven model, with the rest all-wheel-drive. This powertrain knocks the price down significantly, with the CLS now starting from £48,990 – a saving of more than £8,000 compared with the former entry-level offering.See Available Mercedes-Benz deals
The final addition to the revised line-up is a new AMG Line Night Edition grade – a trim level that’s featured on the CLA before. This brings darker styling, thanks to black alloy wheels, revised bumpers and privacy glass. E-Class models in this trim cost from £43,180 and are available on both saloon and estate variants.
