In terms of exterior dimensions, the W206 C-Class has grown quite a bit. The most significant increase being the overall length, now 65 mm longer than before.
Over to the rear, the slim horizontal taillamps enhances the width of the W206 C-Class. It also sharpens up the rear end compared to its predecessor.
Inside, the infotainment display is now positioned in a portrait orientation as opposed to the landscape/horizontal in the W205 C-Class. The air vents are more rectangular and there appears to be fewer buttons on the centre console than before.
The front seats are also redesigned, but the colour scheme seen in the W206 C-Class here may not be applicable when it arrives in Malaysia.
Over to the rear seats, it appears to be more sculptured compared to before, with a more inclined seat bench more additional thigh support. But we can only confirm this once we get our hands on it.
When will the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W206) be launched in Malaysia?
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is expected to go on sale in Europe late-March. A reasonable time frame for the first batch of fully-imported units to arrive in Malaysia would be around 9 months later. Therefore, we're expecting the W206 C-Class to arrive in Malaysia early-2022.
This is assuming that Mercedes-Benz Malaysia will follow the same introduction plan as the W205, by launching the model with imported (CBU) units first, with locally-assembled (CKD) units to follow later.
So, do you prefer the design of the new 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W206) over its predecessor?
