SPY: The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Limousine (W 205) caught bare skin near Arctic Circle

The new C-Class Limousine is slated for world premiere in January next year at NAIAS Detroit. Although there's more than half a year left till we see the final product, spy photographers deployed in Northern Scandinavia caught a totally uncamouflaged W 205 pre-series prototype doing some development on a frozen, snow-covered test track.

Even though photographed from distance, the white-coloured limousine showcase an elegant and rather simple silhouette, with a visibly longer wheelbase and several elements that remind of the new S-Class. In fact, the mini-S design was shaping as a certainty for the new C-Class starting with FEP, when the test vehicles for the W 205 generation have lost the heavy cladding.

While to most it may not look impressive enough, the pictured C-Class pre-series car is most likely the standard low-entry model, given the traditional headlight technology and the lack of LED projectors, that has received the Avantgarde treatment in the form of the Star grille with two louvres. We are sure the finished vehicle will look outstanding when unveiled.

Start of sales will happen during spring 2014, with the main production headquartered at the Bremen plant in Germany and additional volumes for emerging markets to be assembled at the facilities from Tuscaloosa (USA), East London (South Africa) and Beijing (China).
