The auto industry’s spree of launching new cars is not ending anytime soon. Luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz is all set to unveil the Mercedes-Benz C-Class on Tuesday, February 23. Ahead of the vehicle’s launch, some photos of the car have been leaked online. From the looks of it one can easily say that the car in terms of design is entirely new and unique. As expected, the cabin seems to behome to a lot of sophisticated equipment and has also undergone some design changes.
The luxury car comes equipped with four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. The buyers of the fifth generation Mercedes Benz C Class will have the option to choose between EQ Boost mild-hybrid and EQ Power plug-in hybrid functions. This will be made available in a combination with either the starter/generator or gearbox-mounted electric motor.
The fifth generation Mercedes Benz C Class will be getting unique bumpers, beefed-up underbody protection things, and increased ride height among other things. The upcoming car has been made on the MRA (Modular Rear Architecture) platform. The benefit of MRA as per the reportincludes an advanced electrical architecture that supports a 48V system that will play an important role in providing a new range of plug-in hybrid drivetrains. Moreover, because of the MRA structure, it will have a multi-link rear suspension and a double-wishbone front.
Images of the car have been shared on a Facebook page called The Automobilist. In the picture of the cabin, it can be seen that the makers have reworked on their infotainment system in order to accommodate their second-generation MBUX software. Apart from that, changes have been made to the air vents’ design. An unmissable part of this cabin is the absence of rotary controller and physical gear shifter. There are chances that the functions of these two things will now be carried out either through the steering wheel or the infotainment system.
