The 2016 Mercedes C-class spy pictures did reveal this car would have a slightly sportier look, from the more elegant sedan version, but recent news just got us to know how much the changes are. The marketing vice-president Drew Slaven had given a word for it that this new model would be “beautiful”, and different from the standard C-class. Without consent, this beauty has fully updated software and technology.
2016 Mercedes C-Class Interior and Exterior
A report informs us that Mercedes is going to sacrifice a prominent amount of in-car area and performance to give it a much sleeker look it needed. The report says that the 2016 Mercedes C-class will cut off space for rear seat and trunk area. The roofline will be lowered by 1.6 inches, which is to flow to its rear end to adjust to this car’s sleek design.
Some more changes can be seen in this SUV. A sleek design with a wider body and a lower roof than their previous model is expected to have some more structural reinforcements. The tail lights are to have a new horizontal wraparound LED-powered lights which are similar to the tail lights of the bigger S-Class Coupe, while the lower fascia gives a sporty look, with an appropriate dual exhaust system.
It is to have a COMAND infotainment display along with a touchpad controller. A 3 spokes multifunction sports steering wheel is to be there. The interior will be held up with ARTICO leather covers with contrast stitching and a glossy black center console. The console present inside the car can be tracked once you cannot find the big fish. Thus it’s very easy to get back this car once it’s lost.
