What look like shots of the 2011 Mercedes C-Class facelift have leaked out on to the Interweb.
The current Mercedes C-Class is due a facelift in 2011 and we’re expecting the revamped Mercedes to put in its debut appearance at the Detroit Motor Show in January. But it looks like a bit of Mercedes’ thunder may have been stolen if the photo above is a genuine leak.
Auto Bild are proclaiming the photo genuine, and it does have the look of a scan from promo literature of some sort. It does also appear to show pretty much what we expect from the 2011 C-Class, with a new set of headlights, LEDs and a reworked front bumper – standard facelift fodder.
Also said to be in the mix is a more premium feel to the cabin, with a structure similar to the E-Class Coupe. Frankly -certainly as far as the majority of the C-Class range is concerned – we found the interior to be perfectly acceptable when we did a Mercedes C-Class Review recently.
That said, we also found the interior of the E-Class Coupe to be a nice place to be - and a bit more premium than the C-Class – when we did an E-Class Coupe review last month. So if that’s the route Mercedes are going with the very able C-Class buyers should be suitably chuffed, especially as we expect price rises for the facelifted C-Class to be little changed.
But we’ll find out for sure soon enough. The Detroit Motor Show is only about nine weeks off.Source: Auto Bild
