Mercedes-Benz C Class News

  • 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class (C43 sedan)

    With the SUV market booming, Mercedes-Benz may make a tough decision in the near future. The automaker is rumored to be considering ending C-Class production at its plant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Automotive News (subscription required) reported on the possible decision on Monday. The C-Class sedan's production exit from the U.S. would leave more room for SUV production. The Alabama plant also builds the GLE and GLS. In the future, the plant will also build members of Mercedes-Benz's EQ electric-car family.

A number of prototypes have been spotted and reveal that there will be minor tweaks made to the exterior design of the small sedan. Look for new bumpers and changes made to the internals of the lights. One of the earlier prototypes had headlights that more closely resembled the units on the latest...

    Its impossible not to notice that the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 has too much tire.

    Mercedes-AMG is out testing a more hardcore version of its C63 Coupe. We don’t think the car is a successor to the previous C63 Coupe Black Series, though we think one will be dropped on us eventually. Rather, we think this will be a track-focused model dubbed the C63 R Coupe, following the new naming practice introduced with the GT R sports car. In the spy shots, we see a more aggressive front bumper to what’s found on the C63 S Coupe. There’s also that massive wing mounted to the trunk lid. As with the GT R, we can expect some extra horsepower under the hood. The tester...
