The Mercedes Benz C Class is quite a popular vehicle and sells in good numbers across the world. The car in its present avatar has been around for quite sometime and the guys at Benz have given a facelift to the car to freshen things up.
The first spy shot of the facelifted C-Class is out and there are quite a few noticeable changes. The head lamps receive a fresh design, the front bumper and the bonnet to have been given tweaks. The tail lamps too have been restyled.
The interiors too get minor upgrades in form of the finish. The engine options remain the same and there is no update from Daimler on that. Although the car will now get a 7 speed transmission in place of the 5 speed according to some reports.
The new C is likely to make its debut at the 2011 Detroit Motor Show along with the newest addition to the C range- the C Class Coupe.
The car is expected to hit Indian shores sometime in the summer of 2011. The C Class is the segment leader and this 3 pointed star contributes to half of the sales of Mercedes Benz India. Although the C is facing some heat from the BMW 3 series but the upgraded model will sure make things easier for Mercedes Benz.
