Foreign publications have published photos of testing the new version of the sedan Mercedes C-Class. Official presentation of new items should take place before the end of the year.
There hasn’t been one week that we hadn’t seen at least one pair of the so-called “spyware” photos from test of new Mercedes-Benz models. Just a couple of hours ago, we wrote about the updated E-Class Coupe, and today we have another “spy” videos to share with you. The video shows a prototype of the updated C-class sedan, which was on the public roads somewhere in Germany.
The prototype of the new C-Class, which will receive the internal designation W206, still has a lot of camouflage.
At the moment, the novelty can say quite a bit, except for the fact that its shape and size look relatively unchanged from the current “cescau”, over time, of course, the test samples can get significant design changes.
Based on an updated version of the MRA platform from Mercedes, the new C-Class should offer a wide range of engines, including conventional gasoline and diesel turbo engines, as well as at least one plug-in hybrid engine. Most likely, all internal combustion engines will use a mild hybrid system to reduce CO2 emissions in city traffic. It is believed that the six-cylinder units will be completely new generation of W206.
The new platform will bring and other cool pieces, including front suspension with double wishbone, which will be combined with multi-link rear setup. Adaptive dampers shall be available as additional options in the more expensive models.
Several sources report that the new C-class could debut as early as at the Paris motor show this fall.
