Mercedes-Benz C-Class Long Wheelbase Spied Virtually Undisguised


We have reported in detail about the new 2014 Mercedes C-Class. Now, the long-wheelbase version of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been spied in China, prior to its official launch in less than two weeks at Beijing Motor Show.

The car seen here in the image is a C260 L equipped with the AMG Line kit. The car is virtually undisguised as it only has some white tape on the headlights, taillights and grille.


The C-Class L version has a wheelbase of 2900 mm, which makes it 60mm longer compared to the standard 2014 C-Class. The rear passengers will enjoy the additional leg room as a result of the stretched wheelbase.

The China-only C-Class L will be offered with 2.0- and 3.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engines. Also on offer would be a 1.6 liter four pot gasoline motor.

Scheduled to make its official debut on April 20 at the Beijing Motor Show, the Mercedes Benz C-Class L will go on sale in the second half of the year and will lock horns with the Audi A4L, BMW 3Li and Volvo S60L in the Chinese market. This is the first time Mercedes-Benz is building a long-wheelbase C-Class and production will take place in China at the Beijing-Benz joint venture.
