Spy Shots: Next Mercedes C-Class Starts Dropping Cover

Mercedes C-Class

It’s been a while since our spy photographers last caught the next-generation C-Class out testing, but it looks like it was well worth the wait. Today, the car was taken out and our spy photographers managed to catch some shots of a totally uncloaked C-Class.

As previously reported, the new C-Class will feature a new design language, with elements inspired by theF800 Concept Car displayed in Geneva three years ago. Of course, do not expect to see some revolutionary design; rather, expect an evolution similar to what we’ve seen in the recently launched S-Class and E-Class.

Under the hood, Mercedes will offer both gasoline and diesel engines, plus a hybrid version will be available for the first time.

Expect the new generation C-Class to make its world debut in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show . A station wagon variant will arrive 6 months later, while a coupe and a convertible version are scheduled for the end of 2014.

Even though our spy photographers managed to take some shots of an camouflage-free C-Class, they weren’t taken from the best angle, so they do not reveal many details.

Still, we do expect the new C-Class to feature a larger grille in 3D design, revised bumper and, of course, the same headlamps we have seen in models, like the recently launched S-Class.

For the rear, Mercedes will also opt for some more elegant lines, a new set of taillights and a redesigned bumper.
