New Mercedes-Benz C-class leaked ahead of debut

By Team ManAndMotor - 23-02-2021 12:11 PM

The New Mercedes C class has borrowed design from the S class as MB is currently focussed on developing the next gen C class sedan which is supposed to make global debut on 23 Feb.



Exterior And Interior Styling

Pictures posted online show the C-class will adopt a new look that brings it in line with the newer A-class, E-class and CLA. A more angular front end and reshaped light clusters are the most obvious evolutions, but what’s more significant is that it seems the new C-class will offer interior technology from the S-class luxury flagship.

Inside, the infotainment system looks to have been completely reinvented to accommodate the firm's second-generation MBUX software, with the current car’s horizontal central display swapped out for a prominent vertical unit between the front seats. The rotary controller and physical gearshifter are gone, too, with their functions likely shifted onto the touchscreen or steering wheel. A free-standing full-digital instrument display replaces the hooded cluster of the current car.

We can also see a new design for the C-class' distinctive air vents, and a colour head-up display will be available as well.

As mentioned earlier, the C-class has been redesigned from the ground up, with highly efficient new hybrid drivetrains and advanced autonomous driving technology set to be some of its key draws. The fifth-gen luxury sedan will be underpinned by Mercedes’ MRA platform and will be offered with a range of mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid engine options.

In terms of technology, the new C-class is set to come packed with Level 3 autonomous technology, including a new Drive Pilot function that will allow hands-off driving at speeds of up to 129kph. The new C-class will also come with self-parking capabilities as part of an automated valet parking function developed by Mercedes in partnership with Bosch. It will allow the new C-class to negotiate parking garages and manoeuvre into free parking spaces – all via a smartphone app interface.
