We knew that the next generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class would take some cues from the hyper-stylized CLA. That's a very good thing apparently, as the recently revealed 2015 C-Class is showing off some seriously stylish lines. It should be a shot in the arm for a car that has tough competition in the form of the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, and the redesigned Lexus IS.

A bit surprising, however, are the two powertrains that Mercedes-Benz will offer up for the new C-Class. The turbo-four and the turbo-six are two solid choices, we were just hoping to see the CLA45 AMG version of that turbo four as a choice, since it makes more power than the six cylinder being offered up. Additionally, we'd love to see a C250 diesel variant, since Mercedes-Benz is plopping that powerplant into more vehicles. We wouldn't be surprised if it happens down the road, but it's a possibility that it's just to expensive to place into the C-Class.

Regardless, It's clear that this car is quite a looker and we can't wait to get closer and see it in person. Additionally, it will be interesting to get some seat time so we can see how it compares to a group of competitors battling in a tough segment.
