EXCLUSIVE: First shots of the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class undergoing development tests

EXCLUSIVE: First shots of the all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class undergoing development tests

Our spy photographers in Stuttgart (Germany) have spotted, for the first time, a camouflaged all-new Mercedes-Benz C Class undergoing road tests.

Codenamed W206, this edition of the C Class is likely to borrow the MRA2 platform from the E Class (2nd-gen Mercedes Rear-wheel Architecture). Although the wheelbase will remain similar, the new platform is expected to liberate more cabin room. Not only is the MRA2 platform lighter, it shares components with the EVA (Electric Vehicle Architecture-Mercedes EQ models) which makes it handy when the time comes for electrification. 

Sources also report that Mercedes-Benz is slated to introduce a plug-in hybrid version with improved range, along with a new generation of six-cylinder diesel/petrol motors, and some four-cylinder turbocharged engines that have been powering the E Class.

Also on the cards for the next C Class is a range of technology systems that’s already available in the new S Class. Owners will benefit from a fully digital makeover with all sorts of connectivity and an interface similar to what Audi uses in its A8.

Although the all-new C Class is still sometime away, we expect it to be revealed late next year at some auto show before getting launched in 2020. Stay tuned for the details.
