2014 New Mercedes C-Class review, test drive

    The all-new C-class looks like a baby S-class. Can it become the instant class benchmark just like its big sibling did?

    2014 New Mercedes C-Class review, test drive

    New Mercedes C-Class.

    Model : C-Class

    Luxury car buyers are in for a bit of a treat; the new Mercedes C-class is headed here towards the end of the year, and the good news is that it is really special. Packing stunning looks, a cracking interior and loads of high tech into one package, the C-class promises to be every first-time Merc buyer’s dream. But is it that good?

    It certainly has the right stuff in the looks department. Looking very similar to the new S-class from several angles, the new C-class combines perfect proportions, crisp details and fluid lines to deliver a knockout punch. Of the two, the traditional and sporty grilles, we in India are likely to get the latter. As with most Mercedes cars, the grille forms the focal point  of the design. Set low, the lines of the car then follow the heavily inclined front windscreen, tight-fitting roof and compact rear section, giving the new C-class a really sporty profile. The rear of the car also looks a lot like that of the new S-class, which is great, if you are a C-class customer. But whichever way you look at it, this is one of the most attractive new Mercedes-Benz cars to be launched in the last few years.
