UNCOVERED: The new C-Class (W 205) gets snagged totally uncamouflaged !!!

After the first leak which emphasized a set of images taken from an internal brochure, this morning brought us fresh and proper pics with the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class totally exposed, with no camouflage whatsoever.

This strategy seems to be more of a controlled leak from Mercedes-Benz rather than a true leak, as it is fairly similar to what happened at the end of March, when an uncamouflaged, production-ready prototype of the W 222 S-Class generation was photographed in the same conditions in the United States, while taking part in a photo shootout (see HERE).

From the first view, you get to see the new C-Class was dramatically influenced by the new S-Class. Even though its proportions are far more compact, the W 205 generation showcases an exhilarating design philosophy which made sensation on the W 222 model series as well. The evolution in terms of styling is quite radical and the general appearance is now fresh and youthful – gone is the old school Mercedes-Benz design for “above 45″ clients.

The new C-Class proposes two different fascias depending on the equipment line. The AVANTGARDE and the AMG Sport models get the Star grille, while the basic and ELEGANCE models receive the classic lamella grille with chrome accents. Even though the car has grown in length up to 4.7 meters, it still manages to look very dynamic and well packed. The rear end screams “S-Class”, although there are some differences that set the two apart.

The new C-Class is headed for the world premiere at NAIAS Detroit 2014. First official pictures from Mercedes-Benz might come in mid-December, while the market launch is programmed for spring next year.
