Even more agile: sports suspension and Dynamic Handling package as an option

In addition to the standard-specification AGILITY CONTROL suspension, the C‑Class offers two other options for adjusting the suspension's characteristics in line with drivers' personal preferences. As an optional extra a sports suspension can be selected - it has shorter springs, shock absorbers with tauter tuning, and stronger torsion bars.

A Dynamic Handling package is available as an alternative. It offers the driver two shift programs to choose from: Sport and Comfort. Within these shift programs the shock absorbers are electrically adjusted on a continuously variable basis. Sensors monitor each driving situation and send the information they gather to an electronic control unit. Depending on the current road or operating condition the system adapts the damping forces individually for each wheel - with infinite adjustment and fully automatically.

New styling: light-alloy wheels for AVANTGARDE and ELEGANCE

The saloon and estate both sport seven-spoke light-alloy wheels as part of their standard specification, whilst the AVANTGARDE and ELEGANCE lines are shod in newly styled twin-spoke wheels. Individuality comes courtesy of the extensive range of light-alloy wheels featuring around a dozen different designs in 16, 17 and 18 format. In place of the standard-fit 7.5 J x 17 wheel, the AVANTGARDE model can also be ordered with a 7 J x 16 wheel - providing an alternative for customers who want to make use of the consumption potential offered by a smaller and narrower wheel/tyre combination.
