Incredibly it’s time for Mercedes-Benz to update the C-Class – where did that three years go? Our pics capture the car a great deal less disguised than seen so far, revealing a new look including headlights, front bumper and bonnet. The rear is expected to feature a new set of lights and some modifications to the bumper.
Some engine upgrades will be on offer while the interior should receive minor changes, too. Current models include the C220 CDI with 170 hp and 400Nm, and the fire-breathing C63 AMG worth 457 hp. Installed technologies include the AGILITY Control Pack, the COMAND system with Linguatronic voice control and the NECK PRO safety system.
Mercedes-Benz did away with the CLK, replacing it with the E-class Coupe . The same will happen when the CL changes to the S-Class Coupe. It follows that the C-Class could also get its own Coupe model to sit above the CLC.
The updated C-Class will go on sale in the new year, just months before the all-new BMW 3 Series and the facelifted B8 series Audi A4.
