Mercedes-Benz is awfully proud of its new C, releasing this superlative-packed design showcase video.
While the Mercedes C-Class was officially released at the Detroit Auto Show, we had photos of it as early as last October. The S Class-inspired BMW 3 Series-fighting Merc blew up quite a storm in Detroit, looking luxurious and expensive beyond its $39,000 base price. With wagon, coupe, possible convertible and C63 AMG models on the way, it’s expected to battle it out in this competitive category. Now, Mercedes’ engineers want us to take a closer look at the C’s “emotional but pure” design.
We still don’t know what the engineers mean by “sensual purity," but we’re pretty sure they aren’t referring to themselves.
