Facelifted 2019 Mercedes C-Class Spotted


Mercedes is out testing a new C-Class model with some modest changes. 

This is the first set of photos showing the new C-Class, which will now begin its slow reveal in spy photos. With the S-Class, Mercedes slowly revealed more and more every time the prototype was driven in public.

For now, we can see both the sedan and wagon version of the updated C-Class driving with the front bumper covered, though revisions to the grille, headlights, taillights and rear fascia are all expected.

Inside, more camouflage was used to cover the changes, though the photographers were able to spot a new infotainment touchpad which will be under the dial in the center console. A digital gauge cluster, lifted from the new S-Class, is also seen on the inside.

Under the hood, Mercedes’ new range of engines is expected to be found which use a single electric motor as the starter and to provide a slight performance boost. There will likely be a range of four- and six-cylinder engines available.

The C-Class update should arrive by 2019 and is likely to be revealed in late 2017 or early 2018.
