2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class to be larger and roomier

Article by Christian A., on June 18, 2013

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C class due next year will be larger and have more a spacious interior as well as a more dynamic exterior, sources told Automobilwoche. Mercedes will unveil the fourth-generation C-class sedan at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and will start selling it in the United States in August 2014. Spy images indicate that the 2014 C-class sedan will look similar to the redesigned Mercedes-Benz S-Class flagship due this September.

The 2014 C-class sedan will be underpinned by a new rear-wheel-drive architecture, with length to be increased by around 5 inches to 185 inches. This added length will result to a more spacious rear seat. By increasing the length of the C class, Mercedes-Benz could avoid cannibalizing sales of the new front-wheel-drive CLA sedan due this fall, which is similar in size to the current C class.

The 2014 C class will feature three body styles in addition to the sedan – a coupe, a convertible and a station wagon. The carmaker will unveil the coupe version – which may dubbed as CLK – at the 2015 Geneva auto show and launch it the same year.

Mercedes-Benz will unveil the convertible version – featuring a classic fabric top -- at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show and will sell it early 2016. The carmaker will unveil the station wagon at 2014 Paris auto show and will launch it in Europe in late 2014. The carmaker will not sell the wagon version in the United States. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C class will be built in Vance, Alabama starting in early 2014.
