Mercedes-Benz Pushes the Luxury Envelope Even Further with the 2019 GLS and C-Class Models
The words Mercedes-Benz and ‘luxury’ are somewhat familiar to one another. In fact, the two terms are paired together so often, they are almost synonymous, with one conjuring images of the other.
It is no surprise, then, that the latest installments in the unfolding stories of the Mercedes-Benz GLS and C-Class models recognize this, providing luxury, power, and prestige in more or less equal measure.
So, what can drivers eagerly awaiting another beguiling driving experience from the legendary German marque expect? Let the Mercedes-Benz of Bedford team examine these two updates to the Mercedes-Benz range for you, beginning with the C-Class.
The C-Class has always been a stylish member of the range, more than holding its own against the arguably more famous cousins in the E-Class or S-Class. The latest update includes several changes to the aesthetic but retains the sleek lines and handsome bodywork which have always made this such a head-turning model.
The real added luxury lies in the tech features that come with the new model. From the touch controls built into the steering wheel to the COMAND® infotainment console, even the standard trim level of the C-Class family of vehicles provides its drivers with the sort of technological capability that really helps to push the boundaries of luxury. Those who wish to invest in a higher trim level may decide to boost the size of the COMAND® system’s touchscreen from 7 inches to 10.25 inches.
All of this is representative of Mercedes-Benz dynamic approach to the modern market. For a manufacturer with the history of Mercedes-Benz, development, and innovation represent potential stumbling blocks. Consumers expect to connect with the latest features and forward-thinking design, and yet this must never come at the expense of the classic looks and historic aesthetics which are so well loved. Mercedes-Benz manages to walk this delicate tightrope with aplomb.
This finely-weighted balancing act is also evident in the 2019 GLS, although in a slightly different way. As an SUV, the weight of history does not weigh quite so heavily as it would on the shoulders of a Mercedes-Benz sedan, however, there is a certain level expectation from the marque’s loyal consumers.
Little has been altered from last year’s 2018 model of the GLS, as Mercedes-Benz gears up for a major overhaul for the 2020 model year. However, this does not mean that customers are not treated to a few extras. Possible upgrades for those who wish to invest a little more of their hard-earned capital in the new version include leather interiors, off-road trim levels, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto connectivity, navigation systems, and more. With three rows of seating, each spacious enough to more than meet the exacting standards of Mercedes-Benz customers, the high levels of luxury are tempered with unparalleled practicality.
When it comes to making that final decision, it is important to get behind the wheel and experience the vehicle for yourself. Get in touch with the Mercedes-Benz of Bedford team today and book your appointment with luxury.
