Mercedes-Benz C-Class is one of the most popular lines in the Mercedes-Benz portfolio and now it can benefit from the KW V3 coilover kit.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class line is the best-selling non-SUV line in the Mercedes lineup. And for good reason. They look fantastic and drive extremely well. They may have historically been referred to as the ‘Baby Benz’ but that doesn’t mean they can’t compete with the big boys. Especially since the C-class has gotten larger over the years. It is a safe, comfortable, and reliable car that also has some decent performance chops. But all cars have room for some performance upgrades, and the C-class is no different. If you are looking to improve the handling of your C-class you can do it with the newly available KW V3 coilover kit.
The new KW V3 coilover kit will be available for the current generation C-class sedan (W206) and wagon (S206). Of course, in the U.S. we only get the sedan. This kit will allow you to not only lower the ride height of your C-class but also improve the handling and the comfort of the ride. This kit is popular with other models, and it is exciting to finally see it offered in this application. The price of the KW V3 coilover kit will vary slightly depending on your specific model. But figure on spending about $3,000. Let’s take a closer look at what you get for your money.
Like Mercedes-Benz, KW Automotive is a German company. They have been producing suspension products for nearly 30 years. They currently have over 26,000 coilover applications.
