… in the last decade, the C-Class was the highest-volume Mercedes-Benz model? Since the introduction of the still current generation in 2014, over 2.5 million Saloon and Estate models have been sold. All in all, over 10.5 million Mercedes-Benz cars in this category have been delivered to customers since 1982.

… China has been the largest sales market for the C-Class Saloon since 2016? In addition, the USA, Germany and Great Britain have been the largest sales markets for the C-Class Saloon and Estate models in the last ten years. Two out of every three C-Class cars sold in Germany are the Estate variant.

… both the front and rear passengers benefit from the moderately increased exterior dimensions of the new model generation? Elbow-room has been increased by 22 mm in the front and 15 mm in the rear over the previous model. Headroom in the rear has increased by 13 mm (Estate: 11 mm). Thanks to up to 35 mm more kneeroom in the rear, journeys are even more pleasant for passengers in the rear.

… the C-Class has taken another major step forward with respect to digitisation and high quality? The interior now has highlights such as the display and operating concept adopted from the new S-Class, with a sporty interpretation. This is accentuated by another design feature: the dashboard and central display are slightly tilted towards the driver.

… domestic equipment and household appliances can be controlled using the "Hey Mercedes" voice assistant of MBUX? Thanks to the Smart Home function, they can be networked with the vehicle and controlled remotely.

… the light in each DIGITAL LIGHT headlamp is refracted and directed by means of 1.3 million micro-mirrors? The resolution is therefore more than 2.6 million pixels per vehicle. DIGITAL LIGHT with projection function[1] is available as an option. This system can make driving safer by projecting guide lines, symbols and animations onto the road.

… the turning circle is reduced by over 40 centimetres to under eleven metres with rear-axle steering? With this optional feature, the steering angle at the rear axle is 2.5 degrees.

[1] All projection functions depend upon local road traffic regulations, and are available in partial scopes in the USA, the EU, China and the Gulf States.
