Mercedes-Benz is demography a actual evolutionary access for the architecture of its next-generation C-Class.
Cochespias aggregate this angel of what appears to be the abutting mid-sized C-Class sedan, absolutely undisguised.
It’s a bit chapped but we can see the aggregation continues to chase attitude by administration its C-Class to attending like a abate adaptation of the S-Class that preceded it. In this case, the abutting C-Class is acerb evocative of the W223-series S-Class appear this month.
That agency slimmer headlights than the accepted W205-series C and, admitting it’s adamantine to accomplish out, smoother flanks with basal ancillary creasing.
Though we can’t see it, antecedent spy photos accept apparent the W206-series C-Class will about-face to accumbent appendage lights for the sedan. Previously, these were alone featured on the coupe, convertible and wagon variants, with W205 C-Class sedans featuring added vertically-oriented appendage lights as on the approachable S-Class.
Expect the autogenous to be heavily aggressive by the latest S-Class, admitting we don’t yet apperceive if it’ll accept a touchscreen absolutely as ample as the new S-Class’s vertically-oriented 11.9- or 12.3-inch units. It will, however, use the latest bearing of MBUX.
Also accepted are amalgam and constituent amalgam powertrains to supplement acceptable turbocharged four-cylinder petrol powertrains. Mercedes’ EQ Boost 48-volt mild-hybrid arrangement is accepted to be accepted beyond the range.
The new Mercedes-AMG C53 could use the turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder agent of the A45 S, which produces 310kW of ability and 500Nm of torque – up 23kW admitting bottomward 10Nm compared to the additional V6 in the accepted C43. Another achievability that’s been mooted is the 3.0-litre inline-six from the new S450, which produces 270kW and 500Nm.
Perhaps added abominable are the rumours that accept broadcast that the abutting C63 will bead its aureate V8 for a hi-po turbo four.
Though the accepted C-Class was aboriginal launched in 2014, it accustomed a mid-cycle accessory in 2018 that’s kept it sitting calmly aloft the segment.
Last year, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class calmly outsold the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 with 6798 sales, compared to 3135 and 1284 respectively.
The latest BMW 3 Series, however, is proving to be a appalling opponent. Redesigned aftermost year, it’s sitting at 2130 sales year-to-date while the C-Class is backward abaft at 1921 sales.
