This agrees with an earlier report in TheCarConnection that suggested there were no plans to bring the C-Class to the U.S. although we still get the bigger 2011 E-Class Estate. Mercedes-Benz brought the C-Class wagon to the U.S. from 2002 through 2005, but it was a slow-seller and the current-generation of the car never made it.
Restyled and redesigned slightly for the 2012 year model, the new C-Class Sedan and its Estate sibling offers a more fluid, smoother look than their predecessors on the outside, and a new theme inside reflects some of the higher-range sedans in Mercedes' stable.
The interior includes a redesign of the dashboard, adding a metallic finish to the controls. New air vent shapes and a new trim panel further modify the look. The center console, likewise, gets a silvery treatment plus more high-gloss surfaces. A new , leather-wrapped, incorporates many controls with the new look.
The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan is expected to go on sale in March, while the Estate will remain just a dream for now.
