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.

      "Baby S-Class" No kidding, it does look like a shrunken S-Class. I just want to go up to it and say, "When you grow up, land a good-paying job, and become established, that's what you're going to look like" and then point to an S Class.

      Why are people complaining that the C-class look like the S Class ?Mercedes has been using this formula for a few decades now.

      The C-class has always been somewhat of a baby S-class, going back to the W202 & W140, so no surprises there. I have mixed feelings about this one; it looks good, but IMHO it isn't better than the outgoing model. I'm just not a fan of Mercedes' latest design language, especially the droopy tapered rear ends. I'll have to see it in person to really make a judgment. Though based on what I've seen, I can be fairly certain the interior will be outstanding. Of course the C will move up in both size and price to make room for the CLA; I'd expect this to start at no less than $40K. They will still sell a ton of them.

      I love it. Apparently everyone else agrees because you can't swing a cat without hitting a new CLA or S here in Miami.

      Basically a baby S-Class I love this design, but I hope Mercedes is not following every other German car makers' foot steps with same design different sizes.

      This can't honestly come as a surprise to anybody. Every new Merc I see, I realize what Bangle meant. The auto industry is in a very strange era, where a $26,000 family sedan looks just as, or better than many luxury cars. I guess its because consumers are demanding more for their money, or competition is getting stiffer. Either way, I miss loving Mercedes. I miss the days when a Mercedes made my heart pound. Today's Mercedes is like many cars on the market. These luxury companies that once started industry waves in terms of styling have really become followers of the industry. Every Merc today feels like a focus group concoction.

        I TOTALLY agree! I hate that thing. I wish the States got the cool hatch instead of the CLA sedan. So much better.

      Mercedes does it again. This will finally be the C-Class that truly sits at the head of the class. Interior, exterior, new engines, less weight, better efficiency, and price stays nearly the same. Going to be a huge winner for them. M

      Looks great, don't get me wrong. But seriously why are all luxury manufacturers making their cars same car different lengths. BMW, Audi, Cadillac, Lexus, Mercedes...I wish they had less of family look and a bit more individualism

      I really think this elevates the C-Class. It no longer looks like an over-priced econocar and truly looks like a "Mercedes". I do wish, though, that they did not add that trunklid spoiler lip as it ruins the design flow, IMO.

      I prefer the "luxury" model to the sport (As I do with all Mercedes sedans) but this looks pretty nice. The front reminds me of the B class a little, and the trunk looks like it's too short, but over all I'm really excited for the car to get here. My other issues with the car are the same as I have for all Mercedes, so no use posting them here.
