Depending on engine selection, a C-Class facelift will come with possibly a six-speed primer gearbox or a nine-speed involuntary (with torque converter) replacing a effusive seven-speed unit. Needless to say, some of a models are going to be offering with all-wheel expostulate and it is believed a aforementioned C200 EQ Boost will be accessible with 4Matic.
