2014-16 Mercedes-Benz C200d recalled for fuel leak fix

Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for 356 of its diesel-powered 2014 to 2016 model-year C200d vehicles over fuel leak concerns. The German manufacturer reports the high-pressure fuel line may not have been correctly manufactured, and as a result could leak fuel. A fuel leak poses a hazard to the driver and other road users...

2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe on sale in Australia

The all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe is now on sale in Australia, joining the sedan and wagon variants that landed locally in 2014. The new 2016 C-Class coupe was first revealed in August last year, with the hero Mercedes-AMG C63 model debuting a week later.

2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class recalled over fire risk

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled five vehicles from the current W205 series C-Class line. The small handful of vehicles sold between August 1, 2014 and October 31, 2014, are being recalled over concerns of a fire risk as a result of faulty battery wiring.

UPDATE: A second new teaser has been released, this time as a photo of the new model lightly disguised (above). The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class cabriolet has been teased once more, ahead of a debut at the Geneva motor show at the end of this month.

Passenger car buyers have expensive taste, figures suggest

It’s no secret that sales of passenger cars — that is to say, vehicles that are neither SUVs, utes or vans — are contracting in market share. But this is not unanimously the case. People are still buying a lot of hatchbacks, sedans, wagons, coupes and convertibles — only an increasing ratio have premium (mostly German) badges affixed to the nose...

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Allroad-style crossover on the cards

Mercedes-Benz appears to be mulling the idea of producing a jacked-up crossover version of the C-Class wagon to match the Audi A4 Allroad. The German company last week staged the world premiere of the GLC (see local pricing and specifications here), a mid-sized SUV rival for the Audi Q5 and BMW X3 based on the same ‘MRA’ modular architecture as the C-Class, and sharing about 70 per cent of its parts...

2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe spied with minimal camouflage

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe has been spied wearing very little in the way of disguise on the streets of Nurburg, Germany. When our spy photographers nabbed photos of new C coupe earlier this year, both on the streets of Germany and sliding around in the northern snow, the prototypes were wearing copious quantities of swirly disguise...

Mercedes-Benz C-Class: 800 sedans recalled for fuel pump mounting fault

More than 800 award winning Mercedes-Benz C-Class models have been recalled for a fuel pump fault that could result in vehicles stalling. Affecting 873 W205 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans built between December 2013 and October 2014, the official recall notice on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) product safety recalls website says the recall relates to the vehicles' in-tank fuel pump, which "may detach from its mounting"...

2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class cabriolet spied nearing production

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class cabriolet is the latest vehicle to be nabbed by our spy photographers' itchy shutter fingers. This prototype was spotted right outside Daimler's research and development headquarters in Sindelfingen, Germany. Unlike in earlier spy photos, this vehicle is wearing production-ready tail-lights, trim pieces and grille, not to mention less camouflage than before...

Mercedes-Benz C-Class range expands with C160 and C300 variants

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class range has been expanded overseas with a number of new drive systems, including the new entry-level C160 and the mid-tier C300. Powering the C160 is a turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with 95kW and 210Nm.
