If you think that the new Mercedes Concept Coupe SUV is already amazing, here’s another treat from Mercedes-Benz. Another car that was launched during the 2014 Beijing Motor Show was the 2015 Mercedes C-Class LWB (long-wheelbase) version.
Based on the press release of Mercedes-Benz, the new Mercedes C-Class LWB measures 4,766 millimeters long and its wheelbase is at 2,920 mm. That’s an 80 mm increase in length and another 80 mm increase in its width. The rear passenger seat is also widened by around 25 mm.
The car will be mass-produced by Beijing Benz, which is 50 percent owned by Daimler AG and 50 percent owned by BAIC Group. Basically, it will carry the same set of specs with that of the standard 2015 Mercedes C-Class sedan.
One of the engines that will be available for the 2015 Mercedes C-Class LWB is the standard C 180L with an output of 115 hp and 250 Nm torque. The other is the C 260L for the Avantgarde and Elegance trim versions. The C 260L is capable 0f giving off 150 hp and a torque of 310 Nm. The third is the high-end model with a biturbo 3.0-liter engine with as much as 367 hp.
Sadly, the new Mercedes C-Class LWB will only be exclusively available for Chinese customers. So, don’t expect it to hit US and Europe later.
