The upcoming 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class incorporates revised LED headlamps inspired by E-Class, reworked front bumper
Mercedes-Benz is working on a facelift version of the C-Class luxury sedan. A test mule of the car has been spied in Germany, which hints mild design tweaks to be available in the luxury sedan. With the design tweaks, it is expected to come more stylish and sharper compared to the outgoing model, while the basic silhouette of the car remains same. The latest iteration of C-Class could launch in India in 2018 and upon its launch, the car will take on Audi A4, BMW 3-Series and Jaguar XE.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes with revised LED headlamps, which take inspiration from the E-Class sedan. Apart from that, the front bumper is also likely to come revised, incorporating new air intakes. The spyshots show chrome embellishment on the side skirts, which enhances the luxury sedan’s style quotient further.
The side profile of the sedan also boasts chrome trim around the glass area. While the front and side profile of the car has received mild updates, the rear fascia remains same like the current model. It sports wrap around taillights with LED inserts, a sleek chrome bar above the registration enclosure and slanted dual exhausts with chrome garnishing.
The spyshots don’t reveal any detail of the interior of upcoming C-Class sedan, but expect it to feature a new touchscreen infotainment system. It could get a dual screen set-up borrowed from its bigger sibling E-Class. Apart from that, the seat and upholstery materials are likely to get improved to offer more luxurious experience. Also, new buttons and leather trims are expected to be introduced.
While the exterior and interior of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class come revised, the powertrain options could get some update as well. The sedan could get a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine from the E-Class, which could replace the 2.1-litre unit in the current model. The turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine under the hood of the outgoing model is likely to be continued. Transmission options are also expected to be unchanged.
