[Video] Spied – Mercedes-Benz C Class facelift has different lights image

The German automaker is diligently testing the refreshed 2018 C Class range out in the wild, so there are ample opportunities for spy photographers to bring us the latest novelties.

For example, this new, short video provides us with an interesting clue as to the equipment options of the upcoming facelift – as the test mules have been spied sporting two different headlight designs. One of them is featuring a full LED configuration – probably an optional setup or the standard for flagship trims, while the other style has a more traditional look and technological feel. More importantly, the spy video creator also took the time to bundle the videos, giving us a point by point comparison of the two designs.

The full LED cluster is closely resembling the optional, technologically advanced Multibeam unit seen on higher-division models in the Mercedes family. The other setup still sues LEDs, but it’s not the most advanced version and we’re probably looking at the standard setup for the upcoming refresh. The C Class family will be updated first in the sedan configuration, with the most likely introduction either during NAIAS in Detroit or later on at Geneva – not the T-Modell we’re seeing here. Instead, the wagon, coupe and convertible options will slowly roll out afterwards during 2018.
