We have to wait until next year to see the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the flesh, and who knows how long we’ll wait for Mercedes to release official exterior photos, but these spy shots of the new C-Class at a photo shoot are almost as good.
In the past we’ve treated you to W205 full-frontal nudity only. These spy photos feature the next C-Class fully uncloaked from stem to stern.
Our forum has mixed opinions about the new design with its upright grille and rounded “boaty” beltline that drops toward the rear of the vehicle … design elements that make the next C-Class look like a baby S-Class, especially from the rear.
The latest speculation from around the Web says this car will offer a standard 1.8L turbo. From there you can move up to a V6, or the 450-horsepower, 4.0L biturbo V8 AMG variant that is giving my stomach butterflies as I write this, especially considering the next-gen car will be some 200 pounds lighter than the W204. Joining the lineup will be a C-Class convertible, as well as hybrid and diesel models.
The 2015 C-Class (to be manufactured in Tuscaloosa, Alabama) will be sparkling on showroom floors next fall.
