In the 2012 model-year most Mercedes-Benz vehicles are equipped with a more fuel-efficient 7-speed automatic transmission and increased power from direct-injection gasoline engines. That includes a new turbo four-cylinder, a normally aspirated V6 and bi-turbo V8s ― some with ECO Stop/Start technology.

Many 2012 models also feature a new viewscreen with a 5.8-inch color display, Bluetooth audio streaming, phonebook download, album cover art and USB port.

Comand with Navigation receives a 7-inch screen, SIRIUS weather, display of personal photos, 3D city models, intermediate navigation destinations, area avoidance and a larger 10GB Music Register.

The C-Class sedan is restyled with direct-injection 4 and 6-cylinder engines, aluminum hood and standard equipment including HD radio, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, USB interface and an integrated compass.

New headlights compliment the exterior with LED daylight running lights and taillights, plus new designed bumpers and grille.
