Next Mercedes C-Class Takes Shape

Mercedes is getting its new C-Class ready for release in 2014.

Mercedes-Benz has entered the cold-weather testing phase in the development of its new C-Class, with the compact sedan spied somewhere in northern Sweden. Wearing slightly less camo than the last time it was spied, the front end has come more into focus with comparisons to the F800 Style Concept that debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show proving accurate. The new C-Class will be offered with various gasoline and diesel engines as well as a hybrid variant for the first time.

We also expect the new C-Class to adopt the new gadgets from the S-Class, much as the updated E-Class has, which will make it the safest car in its class. First out in 2014 will be the sedan, followed by the wagon six months later, and the coupe and convertible some time in 2015. The new-generation C-Class will be produced for the first time in the US for American consumption at Mercedes' Alabama plant alongside the GL and M-Class SUVs.
