2024 Mercedes-Benz C200 Night Edition is a new equipment-packed base model targeting the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4

Mercedes-Benz has added a new feature-packed C-Class ‘Night Edition’ base model.

Mercedes-Benz has added a new C-Class base variant known as the C200 Night Edition, which is backed with a national drive-away deal until 31 July. 

The price before on-road costs is $86,900 – $3000 less than a regular C200 – though the “astonishing” drive-away price (as described by Mercedes-Benz) is $89,900 nationally. 

That deal is on from now until the end of financial year, when the Night Edition will return to its regular $86,900 before on-road costs fixed price under Benz’s agency dealer model. 

There’s actually more standard equipment than the base C200 with 19-inch alloy wheels where the standard car gets 18s and rear privacy glass. 

Aside from that, both are visually similar with the AMG-style front and rear bumpers, though the Night Edition gets extra black exterior trim. 

A 710-watt 15-speaker Burmester surround sound system is included standard, too. 

Inside, Artico vinyl upholstery is allied with front heated and power adjustable seats with memory function. There’s dual-zone climate control, acoustic insulated glass, ambient lighting, an 11.9-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and head-up display. 

The C200 Night Edition scores an uprated 15-speaker Burmester sound system and heated seats.

The C200 Night Edition uses the 150kW/300Nm 48-volt boosted turbo-petrol four-cylinder that drives the rear wheels via a nine-speed automatic. 

The Night Edition’s extra equipment and lower price, which is a long way up on the C-Class’s $78,900 launch price in February 2022, should aid the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in sales against the BMW 320i ($80,200) and Audi A4 35 TFSI ($71,900, both before on-road costs).  

Mercedes-Benz shifted 156 of its luxury sedans last month compared to BMW’s 325 3 Series deliveries. The Night Edition is sold alongside the C200, C300, AMG C43 and AMG C63.
