Spy shots: Next generation Mercedes C Class

Recommended Posts

Here are spy shots of the next gen Mercedes C Class caught while testing. Caught performing some hot-weather tests, this sedan is devoid of any major camouflage obscuring the fascia, grille and headlights, showing off what is clearly an E-Class-inspired face. It also seems a size bigger to me actually.

With its two-bar grille and massive lower intakes – similar to what we have seen on the facelift E Class The next C-Class is expected make its debut at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show.

The rear looks a bit bulky with a heavy overhang. The side too is too plain considering the recently launched A class has a much more aggressive looking metal sheet work with bold creases going on its doors. However, Mercedes is all out to regain its lost numero uno position and is taking the right steps to reach there as early as possible.

After the launch of the CLA, Merc has set high standards for itself in the design department :)

I am sure Merc wont disappoint with the new C.

Also IMO the new C looks like a downsized S Class.

This looks like a poor-man's S-Class. Good styling. But if I were an S-Class owner, I would surely not like Merc doing this.

The CLA is another animal altogether and I am sure once Merc launches it in India, It will be tough for Audi to sell the A3 which looks like a one-size-small A4 in our market. But yes, one important thing for our market is pricing which I am sure Audi will keep a tad-low than the Merc to gain market share.

I really didn't like the Previous S class (headlamp looked Innova'ish) and pre-facelift C class looked plane jane .

Nowadays the Merc styling has caught my fancy especially the new E class and I love the new S class's tail light design
