Mercedes-Benz has revealed pricing for two models of the new C-Class, the 200 and 220d. Styled to resemble a compact S-Class, the new W206 promises to offer high levels of luxury and refinement in a more compact body.
The current local range, as per Mercedes-Benz's website, comprises of the base-model C200 and turbodiesel C220d. The petrol 200 derivative utilises a 1.5-litre turbocharged powertrain, boasting 150 kW and 300 Nm of torque. The C200 has been priced from R856 080.
The C220d is fitted with a turbodiesel, 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. It has slightly less power than the petrol 200 (147 kW) but more torque (440 Nm). The diesel derivative retails for R911 740.
However, as with all Mercedes models, there are a number of optional extras available for both C-Class derivatives. If the standard Avantgarde trim isn't to your liking, Mercedes will sell you an AMG styling package for R54 000. Optional paint and wheel options are available, while numerous interior packages feature different convenience features.
So far, it's just the 200 and 220d models that are available on the South African website. Overseas, other models - such as a C300 and C300d - are available. Mercedes is yet to announce which models are to be offered locally.
