[Video] Spied – Mercedes-Benz lets loose the C Class facelift with less camo image

The updated Mercedes-Benz C Class, on its way towards the traditional midlife cycle update, has been recently spotted testing in both sedan and station wagon form with very little camouflage.

We’re expecting the German automaker to make the announcement about the upgraded C Class sooner rather than later, now that public test bots have started losing the layers of camouflage. According to previous spy shots, the interior is going through some slight changes as well, with the C Class ready to sport the new touched first seen on the refreshed S Class range. There’s also a new steering wheel, complete with refreshed instrument panel, while covers for the dashboard also hint at possible changes there as well.

The exterior has been treated to a new set of headlights, looking strikingly similar to the ones showcased by the most recent E Class, while the bumper has been most likely subjected to some changes as well – with new air intakes and some modifications to the lower part of the grille. The changes to the sides and rear look rather minimal. The C Class is also expected to gain the E Class premiered new 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine – ready to send the venerable 2.1-litre diesel to the retirement home.
