introducing the 2014 mercedes c class

Daimler Benz will launch a new lighter and more fuel efficient C-Klasse in 2014. Auto Motor und Sport caught a prototype. The Erlkönig is only slightly camouflaged. Its Blade Runner outfit could not stop the AMS PhotoShop expert from recreating a C Class as it hopefully will appear in showrooms two years from now. See below.

The 2014 C Class promises to be more curvy with a tucked-in derriere. A southern belle that will also be built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama,

Built lighter and with better aerodynamics, the new C Class is expected to have a 20 percent better mileage than the current model. For engines, AMS expects a C 220 CDI with 170 hp, a C 250 CDI with 204 hp, and a C 350 with 306hp. Renault will contribute 4 cylinder diesel engines.

From the back, the prototype looks like it had been used by Alabama boys for target practice.

With all the camouflage photoshopped away, this is how AMS thinks the C Class will look when it becomes available in 2014.

    Oh goody! Another Euro car with high beltlines and gunslit windows. Maybe it comes standard with the new "Protect O Field" that warns you of all the hazards you can't see.

      I hear you. I thought one of the greatest things of the current MB lineup was that they did not get on the high beltline bandwagon, and visibility was pretty good.

    The emblem-to-vehicle size ratio is just off the charts with this thing. It even makes the Cadillac Escalade's pie sized emblems look small.

  • Add Lightness Range Rovers have come a long, long ways from their original concept of a gentleman's Land Cruiser. Pretty useless off road now but the wannabees will love them until the warrantee expires.
