It seems Mercedes-Benz will play hard with the new C-Class. Prototypes have already reached the zone near the Arctic Circle and are already tried and tested up to their utmost limits in cold weather conditions. Early as it is, we'd like to mention the W 205 generation will likely grow in size to make enough room for the upcoming CLC compact 4-door coupe. The combination 'long hood - short front overhang' + 'short boot - long rear overhang' will certainly further enhance the visual effect of a lengthy limousine. The exterior and interior styling philosophy will likely follow the progressive-organic theme previewed on the F 800 Style research vehicle, which should add more dynamism, solidity and self-confidence to the C-Class's well-known elegant and classic look.
