New Mercedes C-Class Sedan Spied Testing In Tandem With Wagon Version
Mercedes-Benz has tested the C-Class more often recently, with observations here and there. The last is from walkoARTvideos on Youtube, which spotted the compact luxury vehicle in Germany.
Interestingly, it wasn’t just the sedan version that was seen in the embedded video above. The C-Class Estate was also spied on in test on the same course as the sedan, giving us a glimpse of the forbidden fruit for American wagon fans.
Coded W203 (sedan) and S203 (wagon), there have been several snippets of the next revamped Mercedes C-Class. Ola Kaellenius, chairman of the Daimler Group board, recently hinted that the C-Class would be heavily influenced by the S-Class. This confirms previous observations in which the C-Class showed a number of screens inside. It should be noted that the new S-Class is nothing short of high-tech with its multitude of screens in the cabin, along with new powertrain options and other important updates.
The new C-Class is also expected to come with mild hybrid technology, while a hybrid version of the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder from the AMG A45 will likely appear in the next-gen model.
As for the C-Class Estate, fans of American wagons will be disappointed to know that the chances of it reaching the United States are really low, given that Mercedes is reducing its range. This is, of course, a commercial move as a complicated range would be expensive for the German brand and not help the brand at all in terms of sales.
More details on the upcoming C-Class will be revealed in the weeks and months to come as we get closer to its reveal, which will most likely occur in 2021.
