The special edition follows on from the success of the E-Class Executive SE and is based on the SE model line. The C-Class Executive SE will feature the Sport Grille with the integrated Mercedes-Benz star, usually exclusive to the Sport model. New look 16 inch 'Pristix' alloy wheels will also be a distinguishing feature and the boot lid and exhaust will boast chrome trim finishes.
On the inside the Executive SE really comes into its own with Comand fitted as standard. The multimedia system includes hard disk drive navigation, Linguatronic voice control, a 6 GB music register and a PCMCIA slot. All of which can be fully controlled through the Executive SE's upgraded multi-function steering wheel.
At £23,190.64 (Estate, £24,390.11) OTR the Executive SE is just £574.47(ex VAT) more than the SE, yet offers the customer over £2,200 in added value.
Powered by the C 180 Kompressor BlueEfficiency 156 hp engine, the Executive SE returns 44.8 mpg on the combined cycle. CO2 emissions of 154 g/km place the Executive SE saloon in the 18 per cent tax band, making tax payable £68.96 a month for the saloon for those paying 20 per cent tax and £137.91 for those paying 40 per cent tax.
As with every manual C-Class the Executive SE features Hill Start Assist, removing the need to operate the parking brake whilst moving away from a standstill. The system holds the car for a second enabling the driver to move from the brake onto the accelerator for a smooth pull away.Mercedes launches C-Class DR 520
