2104 Mercedes C-Class: First exterior photos leakTue, 29 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Mercedes started to tease the 2014 C-Class last week, followed quickly by the first official interior photos of the new C-Class. Now we get the first leaked photo of the exterior. Looking very much like an evolution of the current C-Class – but with overtones of both the CLA and new S-Class – the new C-Class is going to have to be special to compete not only with the BMW 3 Series but also Mercedes own A-Class range.
Diariomotor has revealed a full set of exterior photos of the C-Class, and the one above shows the new C-Class sporting the AMG look with the sports grill, although less sporty C-Class models will get the more traditional Mercedes grill and 3-pointed star on the bonnet.
Under the skin, the new C-Class uses plenty of aluminium and high strength steel, promising a drop in weight despite an increase in size.
We’re expecting to see lots of tech from higher-end Mercedes moving down in to the new C-Class, such as air suspension and adaptive dampers as well as the availability of Mercedes 4MATIC 4WD in the UK for the first time.
With the interior photos already revealed, and now the exterior photos leaked, we should see Mercedes officially reveal the new C-Class very soon.
