German luxury auto major Mercedes-Benz is preparing to phase-out the ongoing C-Class model internationally in order to make way for the facelift model. The new refreshed Mercedes-Benz C-Class is going to launch officially in the global car markets in June, 2018. Thus, Mercedes-Benz is gracefully bidding adieu to the outgoing C-Class model by recently launching the Nightfall Edition.
Let’s take a look at the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Nightfall final edition:
As with any special edition model, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Nightfall Edition comes with a handful of updates on both the interior as well as on the exterior fronts, but does not get any changes or updates when it comes to the under the hood mechanical bits.
When visual appeal is concerned, in keeping with the name, which all suggests final edition, the Nightfall edition gets a black treatment all over. The radiator grille flaunts diamond shaped studs, while the coupe and convertible versions also get a carbon rear-lip spoiler. There are two powder-coated matt black alloy wheel choices. Among these, one is an 18 inch five-spoke alloy, while the other - 19 inch multispoke AMG branded wheels. The wing mirrors cases are also black, while attractive black graphics adorn the lower part of the car.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Nightfall edition comes in three exterior paint choices, namely – Selenite Grey, Iridium Silver, Obsidian Black. All these exterior body colour options heighten the black and sporty exterior styling updates of the car.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Nightfall Edition models are based on the AMG Line trim package. This means that on the inside, the special edition model gets to feature a black-ash wooden interior trim and the sporty flat-bottomed AMG branded steering wheel.
The buyers can also opt to go for the Premium Equipment Line package, which adds additional goodies such as interior ambient lighting, Keyless-Go Comfort package, Memory package and a glass panoramic sunroof. On top of that, there is also a Premium Plus package which offers a Burmester surround sound system and an updated COMAND infotainment system.
On the other hand, the Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet gets the features like ambient lighting, keyless-go comfort package as well as the memory package as part of its standard equipment list. Here too, the top-notch Premium Plus line adds the luxury of the premium Burmester surround audio system and COMAND Online infotainment system.
When the under the hood mechanical bits are concerned, as already mentioned, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Nightfall Edition does not get any changes. This means, the special edition model gets powered by the same 2.0 litre turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine that is capable of churning out 241 bhp of power and can do the 0-100 kmph sprint in just 6 seconds. The cars are available in both rear-wheel drive and all four wheel drive options.
The Nightfall edition is available on the C-Class C220d, C250d and C200 variants in the international markets, with a starting price of GBP 32,565 (approximately Rs. 29.79 lakhs) in the U.K market for the C200 variant. There is no word on the arrival of the C-Class Nightfall edition in India yet.
