The next generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class is scheduled for its world premier sometime next year but that hasn’t stopped spy photographers form doing everything they can to catch a glimpse of the next-gen model ahead of that reveal.
We’ve been bringing you spy photos for months, and now, based on those photos, SRK from Indian Autos Blog has translated those photos into an amazing rendering.
We’ve included the new rendering as well as past spy photos in the gallery below.
New C-Class engines and specs
From the new C-Class lineup, we can expect to see a range of efficient petrol and diesel engines, a four-cylinder engine developed and built by Nissan and the first engine built in the U.S. to be used in a mainstream Mercedes as well as a plug-in hybrid model in order for Mercedes to take on the Lexus IS 300h.
Watch for big updates to the safety tech on-board, borrowing systems from the current E-Class, including cameras that can detect traffic and quite possibly the ability to steer itself in traffic jams.
One of the most important changes to the new C-Class would be the new Mercedes Rear Wheel drive Architecture (MRA) platform underpinning it. The new C-Class is expected to drive and handle better than the outgoing model thanks to the improvements in weight and performance.
