    2014 Mercedes C Class

    The new C Class is looking very nice, like a mini S class. Interesting that Audis design language is also very "copy-reduce-paste" but mercedes did it very nicely, I like it.

    I don't agree, SLS, New S-Class, both look great to me. This C-class also seems to work well, imo.

    100% agree.

    Can't understand the Mercedes bashing here. Of course it's a matter of personal taste as always,  but the new C-class will have its target group. Personally I like the interior design. It's much fresher than before.

    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    New C class is streets ahead of the dull 3 series and the bland A4.


    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    Some call it bland or dull,  I call it minimalistic. I love that kind of designs, that's one if the reasons why i like the 911. For some reason, the Mercedes designs, including the SLS look bulky to me. But beauty is always in the eyes of the beholder of course.  It's a good thing that not everyone likes the same car ;)

    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    Like it, but too elegant... For S class its good, but for C class I would like to see more sportive design approach. I can't imagine how AMG or Black series will look... 

    A45 AMG is better)))

    Way too elegant, thats the problem. Maybe the AMG models will look different? Smiley I guess not (how can they).

    The interior however seems to be nice and fresh, much better than on the old C class.

    Like kudryavchik said: Good design for the S class but for the C class? I don't know. It also kind of devalues the design of the S class.

    What´s up with the navigation screen!!!! Looks like an aftermarket solution, not integrated at all Smiley

    Apart from that the interior looks great , much better than the old modell and fresh.

    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    Doesn't look too bad, does it?

    Yes, of course it looks somehow traditional, but we're talking about a Mercedes C-class here and I think some dignity fits this car rather well. And finally they seem to get it right with the shape of their headlights.

    I for one am happy that Mercedes apparently still can create good looking cars rather than their clownish design of the recent past.

    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    There is a luxury (first pictures), sport and AMG trim (second set of pictures) available. As every German manufacturer right now they understand that the exterior and interior trims strongly differentiate the customer groups. Far more interesting than the design is actually the availability of technologies on this car (air suspension, more sophisticated air conditioning, Burmester sound system) as I personally for example don´t need the size of an S-class but would welcome the comfort and technology in a car the size of the C-class. 

    I also believe that the above pictures are deceiving just as usually the first press pictures from Porsche are. The below one should rather resemble the impression the car makes on the street. Very sleek, in my opinion...

    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    there is already a small catalogue out at the dealers - I like it very much but MB CH said most feedback was very positive except for the prominent sat nav - I like the car as a whole a lot !

    I suspect the screen must be detachable to be carried as a tablet. Otherwise it doesn't make any sense to be in that position.

    There is something similar on the VW Up Smiley

    Nope - actually thought of the same - and how cool would it be if you could place yr own Ipad there and have all the car details on the screen etc - that would be innovative. Unfortunately it's fix

    Car manufacturers kind of missed this trend, surprisingly. Smiley

    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    I don't understand the overdone grille. The "luxury" version is so big and in-your-face ostentatious (same problem as with the S-class). And while the "sports" version blends in a bit better, it suffers from these ugly cut lines where the hood meets the sides of the grille.

    I still believe MB need to fire their designer. Zero taste, zero elegance. 

     


    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    oh dear...this reminds me of the C class of 2 or 3 generations ago where you could not tell it apart from an S class when approaching from behind or from head on.  2014 C  class buyers will probably like that....2014 S class owners , not so much 


    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    for those US poster : show me ONE nice car in this segment from the US

    And your point is? Are you seriously setting the bar this low for the vaunted MB and BMW?

     


    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    i guess this works well for the "older" / "i love MB brand elegance" customer...   that navigation design needs to go... so cheap looking...

    not my cup of tea...

     


    Re: 2014 Mercedes C Class

    Beautiful car. One reason more not to buy an S-Class.... Who wants to buy a luxury sedan when you get an entry level Benz in the same look?

    Because your chauffeur will only be seen driving the S class....indecision
