2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class enters testing phase

2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class enters testing phase

The fifth generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been spotted testing in the United States. Sitting above the CLA-compact sedan, the new C-Class will get added features like the latest driver-assistance systems developed by Mercedes-Benz to create a meaningful gap between the two models. The new C-Class takes cues from its elder siblings in terms of design philosophy.

The face of the car is dominated by an optional new grille accentuated by a large three point star and newly designed air intake vents giving the bumper a more chiselled look. The C-Class will be built on a new platform that will spawn sedan, coupe, convertible and station wagon variant. The 2015 C-Class as always is rear-wheel drive but will be offered with the option to upgrade to an all-wheel-drive setup. 

The next generation C-Class will be powered by a range of engines. The newly developed 1.6-lintre four cylinder turbo petrol engine that makes 250 horsepower, as well as the turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 as that will feature in the new E-Class will be on offer. The AMG version of the new C-Class will also get a new turbocharged V-6 engine which will replace the M156 6.2-liter V-8 sitting in the current model. The C-Class is expected to come with a six-speed manual and a seven-speed automatic transmission.

It will be interesting to see if the C-Class will inherit the DRL mounted headlamp cluster from the E-Class. A diesel-hybrid and plug-in-hybrid options may also be on the charts from the German manufacturer.
