We've seen spy shot after spy shot for the upcoming 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but now Mercedes has dropped its first teaser for the new sedan. Still looking every bit like a miniature version of the 2014 S-Class, the video shows off a few of the car's details both inside and out.

The most telling look at the redesigned C-Class comes at the 0:15 second mark of the video (as seen in the blurry screen shot above) revealing its face, but the video also reveals the front-end profile and some of the interior bits like the Burmester door speaker grille and blue ambient lighting on the center console. From what we hear, the 2015 C-Class could be introduced at the Detroit or Geneva auto shows early next year, but there are likely to be more teasers and spy shots in the coming months. Until then, check out the brief video posted below.

      From the looks of it the C class is returning to it's "baby S-Class" roots. Can't wait for the reveal.

      Given that the styling C-Class (and 190) have always looked like a baby S-Class, it's hardly a surprise. Looks good though! Interior pics can be found here: www.jesmb.de

        It really has. They did it first, and recently BMW thought it was a good idea to do that. The Germans love to copy one another.

      I'm very excited for this. The W204 has got to be one of the best Mercedes designs to come out before the newest E and S. Mercedes seems to be doing better with their "core" models. (C, E, S, SL) Just stop all this nonsense with the M class convertibles or whatever. and focus on what made the company what it is. I'm ready for a much more avantgarde C class. The 3er owns this segment as a sport sedan, but the Mercedes is 100 times better as a luxury sedan.

      It is being launched in 2014 and they call it a 2015, they should have been more bold and called it a 2017. This model year gymnastics games that car makers are playing is getting ridiculous. So if the C class wins car of the year for 2014 it is with a 2015 model? I think if I was the other manufacturers I would be crying foul and saying that they are not eligible and have to wait a year

      Is that the new Hyundai Genesis?

        No, because Hyundai doesn't use cheap fake leather and cheap fake wood looking vinyl in it's luxury cars.

          Haha, I think it's funny that you are trying to make a case against MB and for Hyundai based on material quality. Even regular old MB Tex feels richer than the leather Hyundai uses, it's also a lot more durable. Likewise, MB only uses real wood in its cars, but Hyundai overwhelmingly uses fake wood. In fact, even the Equus uses faux wood trim in a few small areas. That isn't to say the Genesis and Equus aren't really solid cars. However, they are definitely more than a few steps behind MB when it comes to material quality.

        No, because this is original, inspired, and classy.

      Bug eyes, tapered body. Hardly teasing.

      Burmester-branded audio in a C-Class, whoa. Wonder what the markup is gonna be on this iteration over the outgoing model. Looks very nice, luxurious. +1 to Tyler for linking the interior shot, looks elegant.

        And Airmatic as an option. C250 with 252hp I4 will likely start at 38-39K for 2015. M

      This is getting lame. First Toyota was "teasing" with closeup photos of Corolla. Now MB is "teasing" with blurry video of C class.

      This car is going to be super good.

      The Audi A4 needs to be updated too, it's been around forever and is the only recent car that I can think of that's undergone two refresh facelifts, mostly by toying around with the headlights.

        What are you talking about? It didn't get two refreshes. The B9 appeared in 2009 and got a refresh last year for model year 2013. It debuted one year after the W204 C-class, so it's logical that its replacement is one year off from now.

        it only had one refresh!

        The A4 is irrelevant, no one will notice. They'll be fine.

      I wish there were more details on the mechanical aspects of the car (engines, transmission, etc.). Mercedes is a little behind its BMW and Audi counterparts in their lower tiered models. The way I would break it down is as such: C250: Turbo I4 (240 hp / 260 tq) + 8 Speed for ~$35k C300, Turbo I4 at a higher output (300 hp / 300 tq) + 8 speed ~$45k C350 TT inline 6 (380 hp / 350 tq) + 7 speed DCT ~$55k C63 AMG TT 4.0 V8 (450 hp / 400 tq) ~$70k That would be a pretty badass lineup.
