This is it, guys. Set your eyes keenly on this. It’s no other than Mercedes-Benz’s 2012 C-Class, which had gotten quite a modest facelift from its predecessor. Those looking for a lot of change will find it under the hood, where there will be a four banger engine for the C250 option that will be offered in the US.

lot to expect from the four-cylinder variant of the 2012 C-Class.
You’ll just have to wait and see at the Detroit Motor Show. Dealerships
are rumored to start selling next summer, so watch out.
