I personally like the interiors of this vehicle better than the last C class but not the older C classes pior whose interiors simply oozed elegance through generous use of wood, They seem to have gone for a much more 'sporty' appearance for this generation from the flat bottom steering wheel to the SLS air-con vents. Not a fan of tablet like screen with its think bezels, Overall though I'm satisfied.
Now I wait for the official exterior shots. If it's carried over styling queues from the S-Class I shall be very happy : ).

^^ I hope that's just a rendering, because it does not look proportionate. The front overhang in particular, looks a bit off. There's something very BMWey about it.

The interior though is delicious! *thumbs up*

Was the earlier teaser pic of the interior of the base version? In that pic, the gear lever was the traditional A/T type but in this latest pic it's in the proper Merc position. BUT, I stand corrected. I didn't like the interiors earlier, called it Chinese, but the latest one is smacking delicious!

More technical details revealed of the next gen C Class;

The body and the bodyshell are around 70 kg (154 lbs) lighter than conventional production using steel, with the entire vehicle being around 100 kilograms (221 lbs) lighter than its predecessor.

I am getting very impressed by the design language of the new age Mercs. First the A class, then the new S and now this C. I have always been in the BMW camp but I prefer the above mentioned cars to the corresponding Bimmers.

Maybe, as they say, this is what age does to you.

PS: The F10 is still the pick over the new E though. The latter looks very Korean.

It seems that Merc is also following the same route of other germans by maintaining the similar design clue for all of their models. I like Merc for the distinguishing features in every single car. The way they are different. Unlike Audi, VW, somewhat BMW also, whose cars are very difficult to recognize from far. Anyway, it the graceful, royal look seems to have gone but replacements are not bad either.

Yes this is the C63 AMG spotted near the 'Ring

Power output should be in the range of 485-500 HP from a twin-turbo V8 4.0L Engine

Hmm. Am I the only one who thinks the current gen model looks better? The S-Class rear does not seem to suit this body length at all. The front isnt particularly appealing either. While I currently found the A4,3 series and the C class equally attractive in their own way, this would definitely be a couple of steps below the other 2.

A bit disappointing. Looks like the C has lost a bit of character. This looks more of a fusion between facelifted E Avantgarde and the CLA.

I shall partly agree to that, coz frankly i love the front, side & front 1/4 look.

The rear has been kinda not upto the mark especially the tail lights, which IMO are way too small.

Also note this car is sporting the AMG styling package, the normal C will look less aggressive than this.
