2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan Exposed Without Any Camouflage

If you were unhappy with the low- quality leaked brochure shots of the all-new 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan, maybe we can help, as our spies pulled off a photo shoot of a naked example of the luxury German model while it was being filmed in the USA.

The new C-Class, seen here wearing the optional AMG Styling package (again, not to be confused with the upcoming AMG 63 performance version), looks sleeker and more contemporary than the current model, blending the design DNA of the bigger (and more serious) S-Class and the smaller (and frumpier) CLA saloons in an intermediate (size) package.

Mercedes has already divulged details and provided official photos of the interior, which raises the bar in terms of styling, and according to the company, quality as well. It also adds new or upgraded features ranging from the optional head-up display projecting info on speed limits, navigation and messages from DISTRONIC PLUS as a virtual image, to a fingertip controlled touch pad within the lower center console for the standard 7.0-inch or optional 8.4-inch color monitor placed on top of the center stack.

One of the highlights of the next C-Class is the weight reduction, with Benz stating that the new aluminum hybrid body along with other measures has shaved around 100 kilograms (221 lbs) over its predecessor.

Want more? There’s also a new four-link front and five-link rear suspension with aluminum components, an optional Airmatic air suspension, which is a C-Class first, with the car gaining all of the available passive and active safety technology introduced on the S-Class and E-Class.

Mercedes has been fairly quiet about the C-Class engine lineup, but aside from a rumored hybrid version(s), expect a familiar range of force-fed 4-cylinder and V6 gasoline and diesel units.

Unless the Germans are plotting a surprise reveal in LA, we should get our first live look at the next C-Class at the 2014 Detroit International Auto Show in January.
