This camouflaged prototype of the updated sedan was spotted in Germany near the Daimler test site, which includes premium Mercedes-Benz. The novelty will debut either by the end of the year, or by the beginning of 2021.

Through the camouflage, fake vents in the front look out, which seem significantly larger than in the current version of the model. This may be a sign that this prototype C-Class sedan had an AMG Line front bumper. The “sharp” LED headlights correspond to the latest Mercedes styling that was applied to the E-Class Sedan 2021 model year and CLS, while the taillights became horizontal.

 Despite the fact that the test vehicle does not necessarily look longer than the current C-class, we expect that the novelty, known as the W206, will offer a more spacious interior thanks to the new and improved MRA platform.

The fact that these “spy” images do not show is a completely new interior design, designed to finally “ditch” the infotainment screen in the style of a tablet.

The interior of the car will receive a completely new “multimedia” MBUX with two screens – a virtual dashboard will be displayed on one, and the other will be a screen for the infotainment system.

The new workshop will be offered with a large number of internal combustion engines with moderate hybrid technology, as well as plug-in hybrid engines. A completely electric version of the sedan will be offered a little later. Rumor has it that the high-performance C63 will be equipped with an electrified four-pot engine instead of the twin-turbo V8. They say that the updated family will also receive an off-road version of the station wagon.
