The Chinese market seems to have a thing or two for sedans with extended rear legrooms. At the currently on-going Beijing Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced the A-Class Sedan L. Together with the stretched A-Class, the German automaker also exhibited the 2019 C-Class L. The extended C-Class is built in China and exclusively caters to the local market.

Externally, the C-Class L receives the same styling updates as the regular C-Class which was revealed earlier this year. More so, the non-extended model is also being built and offered in China. The main difference between the two would be the extended wheelbase of the L, which is 8cm longer than standard. This gives more legroom to passengers at the rear. To further extend rear cabin space, the front passenger seat can also be moved from the rear.

Standard on the C-Class L are new LED headlights. Buyers can also opt to pay more for Merecedes' Multibeam LED headlights as an option. Inside, the driver is met with a fully digital instrument display and wider infotainment system.

Energizing comfort control, which was first introduced on the S-Class, can also be selected as an option to further boost comfort inside the cabin. Ambient lighting is now available with 64 colors. The Multicontour Seat Package with massage function can be had as option to enhance driver comfort.

Under the hood, there are new four-cylinder gasoline engines which are now equipped with EQ Boost.

Since the longer C-Class L began production in 2014, Mercedes-Benz says to have already sold more than 380,000 units.
