It’s been a while since the C-Class first showed its face to the world—a world which gave it such a long, warm welcome. That is why Mercedes-Benz is working hard on facelifting their much-loved saloon to please the millions of C-Class fans.
The entire process of upgrading the C-Class is now in its advanced stages, and auto journalists armed to the teeth with spy cameras just couldn’t help but sneak a peek at what Mercedes-Benz is working on. So, without further ado, we give you this leaked image of what the facelifted C-Class would look like.
As you can see from the photo, restyled headlights would be the main enhancement, while a redesigned front bumper is complemented by an equally fresh looking bonnet. The rear end, meanwhile, gets a reworked bumper of its own plus, of course, a set of brand new taillight designs.
Inside, the cabin will get some fresh new interior fixtures, but nothing monumental. The only change that’s worth noting is the shift from five-speed to a seven-speed transmission. The engine, meanwhile, isn’t really set for a big change either, or at least none that we’re currently aware or certain of.
Hey, what really matters is that the facelifted C-Class will make its first appearance most likely in the city of Detroit come January 2011. And it’ll be bringing along a new member to the C-Class family, namely the new C-Class coupe. So if we were you, we’d be booking our plane tickets to Detroit in advance.
