Rendering – The 2015 Mercedes C Class is a baby S Class

Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Prototypes of the 2015 Mercedes C Class started testing last year and we continue to feature spyshots that show the three-pointed star’s bread and butter model in its future avatar.

Based on these early spy images (and before the 2014 S Class was launched), Shoeb, our design artist, sketched what he thought the new C Class would look like.

Since the launch of the new S Class, there have been a few renderings on the web that borrow the same design language as the Merc flagship. Here is one of them from Remco design.

As you can see, Remco’s C Class seems to be heavily influenced by the new S Class, especially the headlights and taillights which are lifted straight off the flagship.

The overall size of the sedan is expected to grow so as to enhance the space inside (the rear seat legroom mainly). We also expect Mercedes to offer a China specific long wheelbase version too.

The new C Class, which is codenamed W205, should have its fair share of safety and equipment. Rumor has it that the new C Class would feature a segment first air suspension. It has also been reported that the STEERING ASSIST and DISTRONIC PLUS would be seen for the first time on the C Class, funneling down from the S Class.

We expect Mercedes to announce the new C Class next year, likely at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
