0909hrs It's one of the biggest debuts of the year, as the new Mercedes-Benz C-class is revealed at the Detroit motor show. Mercedes' rival to the BMW 3-series has grown in size, but lost weight, and comes with plenty of new technology for its interior.

0133hrs More on the new Mercedes-Benz C-class from Dieter Zetsche: "The new C-class offers the most choices in the segment. It is the most individual and multi-faceted C-class ever, from the selection of individual front faces to the wide range of efficient engines. We will offer the first plug-in hybrid in this segment that can cover most peoples' daily commutes on battery-electric power. Our customers also get the most choice in terms of suspension, because the new C-class gets our Airmatic technology. We believe our customers will appreciate the enhanced ride. The new C-class makes good use of new lightweight materials. We cut its weight by up to 100kg compared to the previous model."
0131hrs Dieter Zetsche: "The Mercedes-Benz C-class is our highest volume car in the world and the US is its biggest market. In developing the new C-class, we aimed for a car that simply lived up to our mantra 'the best or nothing'.
0120hrs Mercedes-Benz boss Dieter Zetsche: "Our sales success in 2013 was driven by our new products. First and foremost, 2013 was the year of the S-class. In fact the S-class went so well that we decided to extend it with additional brands of our flagships - the S63 AMG at last year's Frankfurt motor show and, for those who aim even higher, the S65 AMG at Los Angeles."
