Next-gen Mercedes-Benz C-Class to get Cabrio and Hybrid versions image

The next generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class will get new versions, like a convertible and a hybrid, once it will hit the market next year.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will try to attract more customers into the brand by offering a convertible and a hybrid version, as well as a diesel option for the cars sold in the United States. The model will also gain a 4MATIC all-wheel drive for some versions. As for the new BMW 3-Series GT, the company’s official, Steve Cannon, said that there is no answer from Mercedes-Benz because no one has asked for such a vehicle.

The future C-Class will be larger, in order to make room for the CLA. The model will get a more oval grille and headlights inspired from the CLA. The C-Class will ride on the Mercedes-Benz RWD architecture and it will share some technology with the facelifted E-Class and even with the new flagship sedan, the S-Class. Additional details on the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class remain unknown for the moment and will probably be announced close to its debut.
