The prototype of the updated Mercedes-Benz C-class stuck at traffic lights

Journalists captured the prototype of the new “Tseshka”, which stood at a traffic light, so you can see the car in more detail. It is expected that the new product will be presented in early 2020 as a 2021 model.

These are not the best shots of the updated version of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but we highly appreciate the guys from the walkoARTvideos channel on YouTube for finding a great place to “catch” prototypes. Due to the fact that the car stopped at a traffic light, we can consider it better. In early June, journalists’ cameras captured a test copy of the flagship Mercedes-Benz S-Class wrapped in camouflage, which was also caught standing at the same traffic light.

The seen prototype of the C-class is highly camouflaged, the only place where there is no annoying film is the roof, which really reveals nothing new. The prototype still has temporary taillights installed, and on the whole body there are false panels crammed to hide the real outlines of the body as much as possible.

This is the same level of camouflage that we have seen many times before, which suggests that we still have a lot of time before the presentation of the final version of the prestigious sedan. Nevertheless, we can see the sensors behind the false radiator grille, which are undoubtedly used for driver assistance systems and possibly for autonomous control systems.

We know that the overall external form of the new C-class will be evolutionary, and not something radically new. We also know that the car should get a little bigger in size due to the use of the MRA2 platform. Weight gain is not expected, since the new “cart” makes extensive use of aluminum. The composition of the motor range is not yet known. We also saw testing of the plug-in hybrid prototype of the novelty, and there is no doubt that the sports division of AMG will surely present high-performance versions of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
