As many as two test prototypes of the German newest car Mercedes-Benz C-Class were seen at the Nürburgring race track. Judging by the posted video, the machines were undergoing a series of high-speed tests.

At the disposal of our editors were photos and a video from the tests of the updated C-class sedan. Camouflaged prototypes of the novelty underwent a series of high-speed tests at the Nürburgring race track. Moreover, two different C-class prototypes were seen simultaneously. Both cars seem to be standard, but judging by their behavior on the track, they may have better performance suspension settings from AMG.

Despite the noise from the tires, the test cars looked collected and balanced in difficult corners.

It is possible that this phase of testing is evaluating different tire brands for the next generation compact sedan.

The novelty should be built on an updated version of the Mercedes MRA platform. The changes are expected to result in slightly more space in the cabin for back row passengers, and the novelty will also be offered with new hybrid powertrains. A hybrid version of the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the Mercedes-AMG A45 will take its place under the hoods of the next generation C53 and C63.

The prototypes we see here still have a bit of camouflage film on the body, but they appear to have received production bodies and optics already. The debut of the updated “shop” can be expected either at the end of this year, or at the beginning of the next.

Not so long ago, we wrote that a prototype of the Mercedes EQS electric sedan was seen on tests. Engineers from the German brand Mercedes-Benz are testing a camouflaged prototype of the 2022 electric EQS. As representatives of the company have repeatedly stated, the luxury sedan with an electric motor will not become an analogue of the regular S-class.
