The new Mercedes C-Class is longer and wider than its predecessor, which will promise more cabin space. In terms of its exterior styling, the W206 looks cleaner, sleeker, and more sophisticated, thanks to fewer lines and more curves. It now looks inspired by its elder brother, the S-Class, with a similar front and side profiles. 

The new C-Class’ interior has been completely revamped, again, designed in line with its flashier sibling, the S-Class. It gets a larger (and vertical) touchscreen infotainment system with the second-gen MBUX infotainment system and a 12.3-inch fully digital driver’s display. 

Mercedes is expected to offer many driver-assistance features with the sedan, which could include adaptive cruise control system, improved active steering assist system, and traffic sign assist with stop sign and red light detection. All these features are available on the global-spec model.
