The new 2018 C-Class SE is the entry model for the Mercedes 4-door compact saloon, built to last, with excellent and reliable engines plus superb safety features. Transitioning from the Executive SE model, the SE is the latest entry trim for the C-Class. The model will cost £395 more than the current SE Executive trim, across the 2018 range.
With a wealth of kit and refinement, it’s hard to believe that the SE is the standard C-Class trim. On the outside, the sleek and handsome lines include aluminium and matt black trims, 16-inch alloy wheels, eye-catching grille and halogen headlights.
Inside the well-equipped cabin, the artico leather upholstery, multi-function steering wheel and touch-screen 7-inch media display, all add comfort and luxury. The new SE also comes with a wealth of safety kit including collision prevention, reversing camera, speed sensitive steering and tyre pressure indicators. In addition, air conditioning, wiper sensors and CD digital radio with mp3 interface come as standard. All SE models also offer an agility select system which enables motorists to choose from five different driving modes according to conditions.
The 2018 C-Class SE trim is delivered with a 2.2L BlueTEC engine boasting 170 brake horsepower or a 2L petrol engine, topping the diesel with 184PS. Both models are available in 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission for a price premium of around £1500. Whilst the cheaper petrol engine model may shade it for response and performance, the diesel’s low emissions and superior mpg makes it the more cost-effective option in the long term. This engine returns an excellent 68.9mpg in combined conditions and emits just 103g of CO2 per km, offsetting road tax significantly.
The 2018 SE trim list price begins at just over £26K for the manual petrol engine and tops £31K for the diesel automatic.
