2014 Detroit Motor Show LIVE: New Mercedes-Benz C-Class image

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 NAIAS, in a premiere, after it was unveiled last month.

The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class generation is now more luxurious than its predecessor after receiving some technology from its larger brother, the E-Class, and also from the brand new S-Class. Some of the styling cues of its larger siblings have been also adopted and this included the stylish roofline, the LED infused headlights and the rounded rear end.

As far as the cabin goes, this has been significantly improved compared to the previous version and a more modern design has been adopted, along with higher quality materials. There is also the free standing COMAND display, along with the new touchpad controller, the COMAND infotainment system, premium switchgear, circular air vents, metallic trim and others.

The engine lineup found on the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class includes three different units, like the 1.6 liter four-cylinder petrol, with its 156 HP (115 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque, the 2.0 liter four-cylinder with its 184 HP (135 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque and the 2.2 liter four-cylinder diesel, generating 170 HP (125 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual or a 7G-TRONIC Plus.
