New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Spied [Video]

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been spotted undergoing winter testing in northern Europe. Here's what we know.

While the video doesn't give a clear and good look at the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class, there are more than enough clues. With the advances in the segment now truly huge thanks to the all-new BMW 3 Series and refreshed Audi A4, it's time Mercedes-Benz reacts with a new generation of C-Class. 

What you're seeing here is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class in prototype form. It may be heavily camouflaged and features extra work to hide its shape, but this big sedan is unmistakable. The big question is will we see the Mercedes-Benz sedan family adopting similar style? The current E-Class and C-Class are remarkably close in looks. 

Inside, there'll be the usual trickle down of technology and we're expecting the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class to feature MBUX and the dual-screen infotainment setup which we've experienced in the new A-Class. There should also be a fair degree of semi-autonomous driving capability. In terms of engines, we're expecting a full array of petrol, diesel, hybrid and high-performance AMG models. If you're wanting a fully electric Mercedes-Benz sedan, you'll have to look under the EQ sub-brand. 

Based on the Mercedes-Benz lifecycle strategy, it's easy to predict the new C-Class to be fully revealed in 2020.
