The redesigned 2014 C-Class from Mercedes-Benz has already been spotted testing in the winter, and on the open roads in the summer time. Now the next generation luxury cruiser has been caught in our spy photos lapping the Nurburgring.
Style looks to be similar to that of the last generation, and is supposed to be based on cues taken from the F800 concept. Interior tech will feature a tablet-like display, already found in the new A-Class. A panoramic glass roof is also expected, and will use Mercedes’s Magic Sky Control.
The biggest news for the new C-Class is that it will be the first small car in the Benz lineup that will use a hybrid system for power. Diesel and gas engines will also be offered, and all powertrain options will likely be mated to a new nine-speed transmission.
About six months after the sedan launches, a wagon should hit the market, followed some time later by a coupe and convertible.
