Next-get Mercedes-Benz C-Class going to Detroit Motor Show image

The 2014 NAIAS (Detroit Motor Show) will see the debut of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class generation.

Mercedes-Benz has been working on the new C-Class generation for quite some time now as the model has been caught on camera by spy photographers numerous times but it seems that testing is almost over as the vehicle is getting ready to make its public debut. According to the guys at the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will actually make its debut in January next year, during the 2014 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, with a completely new front and rear fascia and interior design.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be riding on the MRA platform, the same one to be used by the future GLK generation, and it will be 40mm longer than the current C-Class, which should put some distance between it and the CLA. The wheelbase will be 90mm longer to a total of 2,850mm and the weight will be dropped by 80 kg. Rumors are saying that the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class generation will also receive some three-cylinder engines under its hood, along with Renault’s 1.6 liter dCi, as an entry-level version. Additional details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
