The new Mercedes C-class has been shown in its final production form for the first time, following a series of leaked photographs on the internet.
These images first appeared on a Spanish blog site, and appear to show the production-ready C-class months ahead of its public debut at the Detroit motor show next January.
The new model aims to take the fight to its premium rivals by adopting a new rear-wheel-drive platform that will be shared in part with the new E-class and S-class.
Based on the MRA architecture, the new C-class will also stretch by as much as 90mm over the older model to distance the car from the CLA in Mercedes' range.
A new lineup of four, six and eight-cylinder engines will be offered alongside various hybrid options. To read the full scoop on the C-class's specifications, click here.
