The Mercedes C-Class Estate equipped with the tuning package of Vath.

The aftermarket tuner Vath introduced a new package for the Mercedes C-Class Estate just a few days ago. The chosen model was the C180.

The kit contained various power and performance upgrades for the car. However, the changes in the car were only subtle, retaining many of the traits that defined the C180.

The main feature of the tuning package was the configuration in the engine of the C-Class. Vath made a little tinkering with the 1.6-liter turbocharged power unit of the car to bring its output from 156 hp to 192 hp. The torque was raised from 250 Nm to 300 Nm too. Overall, the updates raised the maximum speed of the C180 from the standard 223 km/h to 230 km/h.

In addition to the engine boost, the Vath tuning kit also offered lowering springs bringing the base of the car closer to the ground by 30 mm. Then, its wheels were replaced by a titanium 20-inch alloy set. Others included carbon fiber components in the front spoiler and diffuser, plus a new sports exhaust system.

Interested buyers of the Vath package will be spending €2,308.60 for the engine upgrade alone. For the other add-ons mentioned earlier, customers are expected to shell out €12,252.14 for them. It should be noted that the figures already include the installation fees of the specialist.
