2015 Mercedes C-Class spy shots

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class won't be introduced until next year, but we've already seen the new sedan (and wagon) in various states of undress either through spy shots or leaked images. Thanks to a recent photo shoot, we're now seeing the next-gen C-Class – codenamed W205 – fully uncovered from every angle. Our gallery confirms that the car will, in fact, resemble a baby S-Class, with cues like the upright headlights and grille, pronounced side body creases and the vertically oriented taillights.

There are no model badges on this particular car, but we expect the 2015 C-Class to continue to offer a base turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, a midlevel V6 and eventually, a powerful V8 AMG model as well as hybrid and diesel models; eight- and perhaps nine-speed automatic transmissions are likely to perform shifting duties. None of these new shots show the inside of the new C-Class, but Mercedes-Benz revealed images of the sedan's interior about a month ago. Look for the 2015 C-Class to officially show its face at either the Detroit Auto Show in January or Geneva Motor Show in March.
