Spy Photos of a Larger More Masculine Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Spy Photos show a larger more corporate styled sedan

A more spacious and corporate styled Mercedes-Benz C-Class is in the works.  It will feature a more dynamic exterior styling that will directly challenge the BMW 3 series as well as the newly designed Audi A4 that is scheduled to arrive next year. The fourth-generation C-Class sedan will debut at next year’s Detroit Auto Show and will go on sale in the summer.

Based on the spy photos, it looks like the C-class sedan will take several styling cues from the newly released and already award winning Mercedes S-Class.

It will be based on the new rear-wheel-drive architecture and will increase in size by about 127mm (5 inches) in length to 4699 mm (185 inches).

The additional size will add room for rear seat passengers and will also avoid taking sales away from the front-wheel-drive Mercedes CLA sedan.

In addition to the sedan, the new C-Class will have three body styles, a coupe version, due in 2015, a fabric top convertible  to go on sale in early 2016 and a station wagon that will go on sale in Europe in late 2014.

For the North American market, the new generation Mercedes C-class will be built in Vance, Alabama and in the Bremen, Germany plant for the European market.
