The Mercedes C-Class was revised for 2012. Most of the changes were only skin deep and relatively discreet, despite the replacement of more than 2,000 parts. The front end has been enhanced with LED lights and restyled aerodynamic features. Several different versions are on offer, each featuring its own engine. AWD is available, as is an AMG version with a powerful V8.
