Rear end is looking like the 2010 TL, with tiny tail lights... Front end reminds me of a mashup of 5 series headlights and... idk. Yes, i'm a critic. Maybe it'll grow on me though, but at this rate i like the w204 better.

Not a fan of the grill...sticks out like a snout like the Dodge Charger or the grill around the license plate. Everything else looks good

I doubt the proportions of the front are correct. I'm expecting something more along the lines of the new CLS.

It would be nice to see some more horsepower under the hood without having to move up to the AMG car. A 300 HP version would be very nice.

My thoughts exactly...

idk why, but to me, the exterior seems to be a downgrade of the w204.

True, but honestly they needed 300HP back in '08 when it debuted, so when they finally get around to upping the power, they'll probably need more like 330HP to compete in this segment...

'08 C300 Lux Barolo Red Beige Leather P2 MM 18" wheels '84 944
W205

I like the front, mostly, but the back is a mess. Too much detail.

I should be ready for a change about then.

Introduction schedule

So sieht das Programm für den Nachfolger (Code BR205) aus: • Limousine 3/2014 • Kombi T-Modell 9/2014 • C-Klasse Cabriolet 3/2015 • C-Klasse Coupé 9/2015.

I hope that the 4-door shows up before March 2014 as this says. Fall 2013 would suit me better.

C300 Sport/Palladium Silver on Black/P2
Um, probably still 3 years from January that they even unveil it. another 6 months to get our hands on it.

They love the rumors early, don't they?

Headlights seem too small given what we're use to.

This is where the design language was going for the new C. I wish they would stay with the more sleek design. Benz cars are becoming too slab sided & SUV like.

Too muscular. Looks like a Chrysler on steroids.

Hope my W204 lasts 15 years!!

Looks awfully like the CLS, which is already on the road.

The hybrid version sounds interesting. I hope it makes it to the U.S.

Too generic, looks like every other Japanese car on the road. I like the distinctness of the W204.

@RDVT4ME: The 2012 C350 gets CGI and 12.2:1 compression ratio and just tops over 300 HP.
One wishes that the 3.0L and 3.5L engines get the same treatment as the C250 which has a 1.8L twin turbo direct injected, which produces over 200 HP and (get this) 229 lb-feet of torque. Thats more torque than the current C300!!!!
