The dynamic characteristics of the new C-Class set the standard by which all vehicles in this segment are judged – a standard which is raised even further by the optional dynamic handling package with sports mode. You can thereby choose between a particularly comfortable ride or an exciting sporty drive at the touch of a button. With sports mode selected, the system adjusts the firmness of the damping and even sharpens the accelerator response so that you feel the response from the engine more acutely. Or you can simply choose the comfort mode and enjoy a particularly smooth and comfortable ride.
Regardless of the driving mode you select, the electronically regulated damping system always adjusts to the driving situation and road conditions. This increases the road roar and tyre vibration characteristics and driving safety, particularly the vehicle's agility.
One part of the dynamic handling package is its innovative sports parameter steering. By changing the steering characteristic, it provides a particularly sporty steering sensation. The vehicle’s lowering by 15 millimetres makes driving around fast curves even more fun.
