New C-Class Pics!

Follow Marty

These new Mercedes C-Class pics were in our email box this morning, though the car itself isn't due until next year's Geneva motor show. As we've written about it before, the new C-Class will share more of its components than before with the larger E-Class, the next C will be more distinctive in its own right: Mercedes-Benz wants to position it as a true small sports sedan, rather than simply a smaller answer to the E.

The base engine will be a direct injection 1.8-liter four with horsepower from 150 to 190. The 2.5-liter V-6 will make 210 hp, while a 3.5-liter V-6 makes 270 hp. An AMG 5.4-liter V-8 will be stuffed into a special C-Class, churning out 400-410 hp to compete with the Audi RS4 and the next BMW M3. A 3.0-liter diesel is planned, as is an iDrive-like operating device similar to that found in the new S-Class. An all-wheel-drive system will be available.

The official launch of the new C-Class is expected for the Geneva Motor Show in 2007, with sales starting shortly thereafter. The wagon version will arrive at least six months after the sedan.
