Seen here is a new teaser video of the upcoming 2015 Mercedes C Class. The latest video reveals that the next gen C Class will boast of a “high-class ambiance, a new touchpad control surface and a lightweight bodyshell”.
The upcoming 2015 Mercedes C Class is based on a new MRA (Mercedes Rear wheel drive Architecture) platform and is expected to be as much as 80kgs lighter than the current gen C Class. Also, it is being said that the car would have 90mm longer wheelbase.
Powering the 2015 C Class would be the same engines that power the current gen model. It is also likely the car would get a Renault sourced 1.6-litre diesel engine. This is the same engine that powers the Fluence and the Qashqai in Europe. Transmission options on offer would include a 6-speed manual, a 7-speed 7G-Tronic automatic and a new 9-speed 9G-Tronic automatic.
It is highly likely that the next gen 2015 Mercedes C Class would make its public debut at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show in January next year.
