Picture update: Mercedes Benz C180 Avantgarde

In 2011, the Mercedes Benz C-class (introduction: 2007) has received a Facelift, called "Mopf" (Modellpflege) in German. Beside minor changes in the tail- and headlight units and the front spoiler, the major improvement is the interior section. Another change was that the standard trim, which has been known under the "Classic" name, has lost its name and usually is referred to as "standard" or "basis". Apart from the basis trim, the Elegance and Avantgarde package are still available for the C-class.

In the pictures below, you can find a  Mercedes Benz C180 in the Avantgarde trim:

Some pro's and con's on the Mercedes Benz C180 BlueEFFICIENCY Avantgarde:

  • Petrol engine runs smooth
  • The Avantgarde Package is an excellent upgrade of both the exterior and interior
  • The Mopf (or Facelift) was a major quality upgrade for the interior, which gives it a more refined and luxury feeling
  • Parktronic only sounds when the object is near, otherwise only a visual warning is given
  • The engine consumes too much fuel even when driving at moderate speeds
  • Becker® MAP PILOT does its navigating job satisfactory, but its interface seems outdated and not the most user friendly
