2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Exterior

Bold and athletic are two words that can be used to describe the exterior of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The front of the vehicle offers a striking grille design that contains the company’s iconic three-pointed star emblem. Also standard on the 2017 C-Class are LED headlamps, a panoramic sunroof, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The coupe model is especially sporty; as its pillarless design between the side windows gives it a bolder look overall. Furthermore, consumers who opt for the AMG models will be treated to performance tires and larger 19-inch wheels. Exterior color options include Obsidian Black Metallic, Diamond Silver Metallic, and Brilliant Blue Metallic.
