We had the first snow of the year in Beijing on Friday and that is when I found this fine matte white Mercedes-Benz C-Class, parked on a street near my home in the capital. Neatly wrapped over the bumpers but the mirrors are sadly forgotten. Still, a very good looking Benz, especially at night under the street and shopping lights.
Door handles in matte black, very much appreciated. Big tires and sporty 5-spoke ‘AMG’ alloys. Red rear-lamp covers contrast nicely with matte white wrap. Good car! The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is made in China by the Beijing-Benz joint venture, price starts at 308.000 yuan and ends at 463.000 yuan. Sales are lagging behind Audi and BMW because Mercedes doesn’t offer a stretched variant, like the Audi A4L and the BMW 3Li.
