The 2017 Mercedes Benz C-Class got launched recently and the company is already rolling out updates for the compact saloon.
Spy shots of the car has evolved and the model was spotted at the Stuttgart factory located in Germany.
As expected, the car is heavily camouflaged and it is tough to make out its design. However, the headlights are visible along with the front bumper. Minor changes are made to the 2017 edition of the executive saloon. The designers have incorporated the model with brand new tail lights and the bumper is sleeker giving it a compact look. The upgrades are not just limited to the exterior but there are some subtle changes to the interiors of the car as well.
Mercedes didn’t reveal any official information related to the upcoming changes in the C-Class. However, the company may probably launch it before the end of the year. Official reveal of the revamped saloon should be out in few months in one of the upcoming auto shows. The auto manufacturer may also host their own event to talk in-depth about the modifications.
Inside sources suggested that the automobile brand may incorporate wide twin-displays to the infotainment system. The feature is already found in the E-Class edition which will soon be carried out to the C-Class saloon. The large touchscreen will make it easier to navigate through content and there’s a higher probability of a brand new sound system. Both these features were exclusive to expensive models from Mercedes Benz but the automobile brand is bringing them to other models in the near future.
The powertrain variants available in the model is expected to be the same. It will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine and another 2.1-liter engine is in the cards. The revamped version of the 2017 Mercedes Benz C-Class will not make its way to the dealership stores until 2017.
Of late, Mercedes has been taking multiple steps to ensure that they reach younger audiences. The cars are now sportier than they used to be and the bulk look associated with the brand is made sleeker. While there aren’t any drastic changes in the pricing, Mercedes believes that they will be able to convince young businessmen and people to go for their brand. They have tough competition from Mazda, Ferrari, Porsche among many other luxury automobile manufacturers.
We may be able to know the new direction the brand takes in the next few years.
