Here’s another update to the upcoming C-Class. These spy photos show much of the external ramifications Mercedes-Benz will be making to its best selling vehicle range. Most evident are the changes that’ll be appearing on the front bumper and headlights, in line with the company’s new design outlook for the future as well as on current Mercedes-Benz models.
Just last month, the C-Class coupe was seen testing. And now, there’s a whole batch of fresh photos of the C-Class Estate proving that the 2011 lineup will come as a full range. And they’re going to come with brand new, highly-efficient engines that feature direct injection diesel and gasoline technology. Those should include Mercedes-Benz’s cutting edge BlueTEC diesel engine technology as well.
We’ve already told you that Mercedes-Benz is already planning on an AMG variant of the 2011 C-Class Coupe, and they’re going to call it the C63 AMG. What we haven’t told is that Mercedes-Benz is looking to add a third engine in the lineup, next to the 3.5-liter V6 and 4.6-liter V8 direct injection multi-spark ignition engines. It’s none other than a three-cylinder engine that promises to deliver superb fuel efficiency at no expense of power. There are also plans, albeit still unconfirmed, that they’ll build a hybrid varaint as well, like the S400 Hybrid.
When will it all be revealed? Very likely in the Paris Auto Show late this year. So better start planning that trip to France, people.
