It’s Friday and Mercedes news is a little light, so we figured we’ll take a moment to publish some of the more unfounded Mercedes rumors that have been circulating the internet as of late. First up are a few renderings depicting the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, a model that will be manufactured both in Germany and at Mercedes’ Tuscalossa, Alabama plant when it enters production. At this point, virtually nothing is known about the 2014 C-Class and the closest thing we have to the actual model are spy photos of its upcoming mid-life revision; nevertheless, sketch artists couldn’t help but guesstimate what the new model will look like.
In addition to the renderings, there’s a fair bit of conjecture pertaining to the 2014 C-Class accompanying the sketches. A diesel hybrid and straight plug-in hybrid are both mentioned as viable possibilities, as is a new three-cylinder power plant. At this point, we’re not going to make any assumptions, other than the fact MBUSA would have to be crazy not to release at least form of a C-Class hybrid in the next model release. We’ll keep you posted if any new details emerge; in the meantime, check out a few of the 2014 Mercedes C-Class renderings below or head over to Motor Authority for the full article.
