Should go on sale internationally next year.
The fourth generation Mercedes C-Class (W205) was introduced at the 2014 North American International Auto Show and went on sale later that year. To keep things fresh, Mercedes-Benz is working on a facelift for the car.
Spy shots published by Autocar reveal that the company has started testing the facelifted 2017 Mercedes C-Class on roads.
The facelifted 2017 Mercedes C-Class features new LED headlamps inspired by those of the 2016 Mercedes E-Class. No other major differences are visible as such. However, more changes, including those inside the car should appear later on as development of the updated model continues.
No mechanical changes are being reported as of now. In Germany, the current Mercedes C-Class range models, including the AMG variants, are offered with an array of petrol and diesel engines with displacements ranging from 1.6- to 4.0-litre, and 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic transmissions. There’s even a petrol-electric plug-in hybrid model available in the Mercedes C 350 e.
