Above Mercedes-Benz’s C-Klasse models have had a refresh for 2011. Below One of the previous model’s biggest bugbears for us, the interior, has been given a revamp, making it feel more upmarket.

Mercedes-Benz has released details of its revised 2011 C-Klasse, with 2,000 components distinguishing it from the outgoing model.
   There are nip–tucks to the exterior with a more prominent grille and the hint of a V shape with the central air intake, but the best is saved for inside. One of our qualms about the current model was its plain interior; this has finally been addressed, and the new Cs have a new dashboard and better trim, making it feel more premium. Mercedes-Benz says that there is inspiration from the larger CLS-Klasse models.
   The range is claimed to be more miserly on fuel, with a 31 per cent improvement on consumption. This has been achieved through weight reduction—the bonnet is now in aluminium, for instance—and stop–start as standard. All automatic versions will have Mercedes-Benz’s seven-speed gearbox.
   More safety features have been built in, including the drowsiness detector that appears in the larger E-Klasse. Lane-keeping and parking assist are now included. The COMAND in-car computer has internet access for the first time, accessed through the user’s cellphone.
