Specs and Features in the 2019 C 300 and CLS 450

Both of these models have undergone some interesting changes for 2019. First is the C 300, which now sports more horsepower than the 2018 model as well as an available 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster. The CLS 450, meanwhile, defies the coupe stereotype by offering four doors instead of two. This means a more spacious interior for rear passengers as well. There are plenty of features offered as standard or available for both models which include:

  • 11 exterior color options
  • Burmester Premium Sound System
  • 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Panorama sunroof
