New generation C-Class coming in 2014
Next year Mercedes will unveil a facelift version for the C-Class, but, in 2014, the company will bring us a new generation sedan. The unveiling of the F800 concept at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show was said to be a preparation for the models to come, so many anticipated that the next generation C-class would bear a small resemblance to that concept. From the photos shown here, however, it seems that the F800’s futuristic design will be left for the sedan version of the new B-class that we imagine would appeal to a new group of buyers leaving the C-class to the more conservative ones.
The future generation C-Class will measure 4.66 meters in length and will borrow all the innovative safety from the new E-Class. It will be launched with a wide range of direct injection engines and a twin turbo. A hybrid version will probably follow in 2015. The future C-Class will be offered in sedan, estate, coupe and convertible versions.
