We also get a look at two different versions of the car: a regular C-Class and one possibly fitted with the car’s available AMG sports pack. Note, AMG also plans its own version of the 2015 C-Class, which should be released shortly after the launch of the regular sedan.

Underpinning the car is Mercedes’ flexible MRA rear-wheel-drive platform, which also features in the larger E-Class and S-Class models. The platform features a mix of aluminum, high-strength steels and even some composites. This has helped engineers shed some 220 pounds off the weight of the outgoing C-Class, while also allowing the new model to be safer and more rigid.

Powertrain details are yet to be released but expect a turbocharged 1.8-liter engine in the base model, followed by a V-6, some diesel engines and even a hybrid. The AMG model is tipped to receive a new twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8.
