Mercedes ’ "Edition 1" series has found its way into a number of models and now, you can add the C-Class to that list. Limited in quantities, the C-Class Edition 1 isn’t limited in new details, largely attributed to the plethora of cosmetic changes done on the exterior and interior of the car.
Avant-Garde was a phrase Mercedes used a lot in describing the C-Class ’ exterior and interior looks and really, the innovative way by which the company prepared the model does fit that bill. First of are the choice of colors for the body of the C-Class. Nothing too fancy, just a steady offering of neutral colors in different finishes. The other distinctive characteristics of the C-Class Edition 1 are the "Edition 1" badges on the right and left front fender and the new set of 19-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels in a Tremolith metallic sheen finish.
Inside, a few AMG components can be seen clearly, particularly the flat-bottomed multifunction sports steering wheel, the instrument panel in Artico leather replica and the aluminum steel sports pedals with rubber studs. Now those might be inconsequential additions for somebody who doesn’t understand the status of the C-Class Edition 1, but for those who do, it’s more than a welcome treat.
Like the badges outside, the interior also has its own "Edition 1" that you can immediately locate in the center console. Speaking of the console, it’s nice to see that Mercedes also took the time to dress it up in nappa leather to complement the seats, which also has that nappa leather treatment.
Mercedes has yet to reveal the price of the Edition 1 C-Class, but it’s expected to be released on April 7, 2014.
