The next-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been spied once again, this time on the roads of South Germany. The C-Class prototype was wearing less camouflage then ever making it appear heavily influenced by the upcoming S-Class, specifically in the rear. If you look closely at the front, you can see what looks to be CLS inspired headlights, but along with the grille look like they’ve been lowered compared to the current C-Class model.
The C-Class Engine line-up will include a wide range of petrol and diesel units, as well as a new hybrid and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Expect to see the C-Class make its debut in late 2013 as a saloon first, followed by an estate, coupe and a convertible.
