Default Spied: 2010 C Class Facelift

pics from carscoop.blogspot.com



Essentially a mid-cycle refresh, the 2011 C-Class (wagon pictured here, sedan will get similar tweaks) receives a revised front bumper with horizontal LED day time running lights (similar to the 2010 S-Class), a new rear bumper, and redesigned LED taillights.



Inside, the C-Class will likely feature minor trim updates and a revised command system.
Under the hood, engine options will likely carry over with minor modifications for improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

Other than the horizontal daytime running lights on the front bumper, all other changes have already been made to the C Class here in India too.

Mid-life subtle facelift according to the current Merc lineage.

Nothing outstanding. the current look is good enough.

I caught a glimpse of the redesigned R class in the background image of the autobild cover. now that looks more interesting.

Default Minor tweaks to the C Class.

Mercedes-Benz Quietly Ushers in 2010 C-Class with Uber Modest Tweaks - Carscoop
We can't say that we blame Mercedes-Benz for not making a fuss about the 2010 model year C-Class, photos of which have appeared on the firm's official German website, as even fans of the car will have a hard time spotting the differences. As we informed you a couple of weeks ago when our spies snapped the 2010MY C-Class on a hauler, the styling tweaks are limited to the reshaped air intakes on the front bumper that now incorporates a pair of LED daytime running lights (could be optional though) and the new exterior mirror housings. More pics after the jump.

It looks the same. Those LED's look great in daytime but nothing like Audi's. I dont think they will do any major changes to this model for atleast next 2 years. The car is great except screwed up Navigation (which is always the case with MB) "asks us to take a left turn when there is none" I thought they would have done a good job when they launched the C-class in 08 but I dont think so. The interface has changed but the basic Nav is same.

With reference to post#10, how difficult is it to design a decent set of alloys? Even the ones on the current S320 CDI are pathetic. Take a lot away from the rest of the car.

The Merc designers give up by the time they come to the wheels

Well good thing is thats something we can always change with ease.
