Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2014

Brabus introduced its all-new tuning programme for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W205). As expected, the German sedan received new aerodynamic featured that were developed in the wind tunnel. Available for the standard-spec or Avantgarde models, the new air intakes add emphasis to the design of those fitted as standard, while the new front spoiler adds a more striking face.

In addition, the new rocker panels create the perfect transition between the wheel arches. Brabus also offers the rocker panels with optional LED entry lights. The rear end shows a new spoiler lip for the trunk lid, a new air diffuser as well as the well-known Brabus logo.

Brabus offers different wheel combinations with diameters of 18, 19 and 20 inches. The largest wheels are the Brabus Monoblock F and R wheels, which are offerd with a diameter of 20-inch. Thanks to the new lowering kits and sports suspensions developed in cooperation with Bilstein, the C-Class is now closer to the ground.

The engine lineup was upgraded too and the first step is the Brabus PowerXtra B20.2 performance kit developed for the C200 model which is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine. On the standard vehicle, the 2.0-liter engine develops 184 hp but thanks to the Brabus PowerXtra B20.2 performance kit the total output increased by 41 hp.

As a result, the C200 is now able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.0 seconds, while top speed is 242 km/h or 150 mph. Meanwhile, the C220 BlueTEC, which is powered by a 2.2-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine which delivers 170 hp.

The Brabus PowerXtra D3 performance kit boosts the total output to an impressive 220 hp and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. The new numbers help the C220 BlueTEC to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.1 seconds, while top speed is 240 km/h or 149 mph.

Brabus says that the tuning programme is backed by its Brabus Tuning Warranty of three years or up to 100,000 km (62,000 miles). The interior can also be customized and Brabus offers fine leather and Alcantara, as well as aluminum pedals and high-quality velour floor mats.
