If the good chaps at MBPassion are to be believed, German luxury car maker Mercedes will reveal the details of the next gen 2015 C Class on December 16. This will be followed by the public debut of the car, which will happen at Detroit Auto Show in January next year.
It is being said that the next gen C Class will go on sale with three engine variants and eleven color options. The engine options would include two gasoline motors and one oil burner. The C220 BlueTEC diesel is likely to have a max power output of around 170 hp, which isn’t different from that of the current model. The C180 petrol would have a max power of 156 hp and the more powerful C200 would have 184 horses to play with.
The upcoming 2015 Mercedes C Class is underpinned by the much publicized MRA (Mercedes Rear wheel drive Architecture) platform and the car’s bodyshell has 39% Aluminium content. All this has translated into weight savings of around 100kgs.
Various teaser images confirm that the next gen 2015 Mercedes C Class will have new-age features such as gesture-operated touchpad and head-up display (HUD). The 2015 Mercedes C Class will also come equipped with an Air Balance feature that would bestow the cabin space with a relaxed atmosphere through ionization.
Going by these features, it seems like the 2015 Mercedes C Class will compel the makers of its immediate rivals to have a re-look at the features list of their contenders.
The next gen 2015 Mercedes C Class is most likely to make its India debut at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, which will be held in February next year.
