A pre-production version of the 2014-2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been spotted during a recent photo shoot, revealing the new model in all its glory. The car features no camouflaging whatsoever.
This is the first time the new C-Class has been revealed, and, as expected, Mercedes-Benz has applied its latest styling language to the popular mid-sizer.
It showcases new-look headlights as seen on the latest A-Class, CLA-Class and S-Class, curvier panels, and a fuller front grille with two tiers suspending a large Merc badge.
At the back, the taillights are much smaller and more simplified taking on a round shape, with the rear diffuser section featuring a contrasting black insert with a swept-up and finned underside. There’s also neat little slits in the corners of the rear bumper bar.
The car in question appears to be dressed in some form of AMG kit too, with large alloy wheels, chrome trimmings front and back, and a chin spoiler at the front. A full glass roof is also used which suggests this is a high-end variant.
Specifics on the engine are yet to be uncovered for the upcoming range, however, it is very likely to come with a variety of more efficient turbo-petrol and turbo-diesel engines compared with the current crop.
All is set to be unveiled at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
