2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class: A modest but perceptible generation gap

Interesting fact: There is no set, universal standard that governs whether manufacturers or dealers can call next year’s model “new,” as opposed to “updated” or “refreshed” or “pretty much exactly the same as last year.” Years ago we called out a dealer who was billing his Daewoo Leganza as “all new.” After helpfully pointing out it was the same Leganza as last year, he said, “Of course it’s all-new! It just came in from the factory last week! You want a used car? Over there. But this car is new!” Of course, he was trying to sell Daewoos, so you have to give him some latitude. So what are we to make of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class? According to Mercedes, the 2019 C-Class family is “fully refreshed,” which sounds more like how we should feel after a shower with Irish Spring.  And while updates to the exterior may be modest, there are enough new parts in the 2019 C-Class – about 6,500, Mercedes says, and no, we didn’t count – to warrant calling it the fifth generation of the model, if you assume the first gen was the W202 that debuted in 1993, and not the Mercedes 190E, which the company rightly insists served the C-Class market, but wasn’t called a C-Class.
