The next Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be convertible and hybrid

Until now, German carmaker Mercedes-Benz tried different prototypes of the future Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but now, the specialists have started talking about the compact premium sedan. Mercedes-Benz USA CEO Steve Cannon, during an interview, offered some information on the plans of the company and even shared some spicy details about the new W205-codenamed C-Class. According to the Germans, the model will be produced in Alabama, at the Tuscaloosa plant starting with 2014. Previously, the model was powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-d 4-cylinder engine developed by the US. The model will come to life thanks to a partnership between Daimler and Nissan at the Tennessee facility. Different rumors indicate the fact that beside the sedan and the coupe versions of the models, the Germans are also going to offer a convertible body style and also a hybrid-powered one as well for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class lineup. These new variants will help the carmaker handle its rival, the BMW 3-Series that is also available as a sedan, Hybrid, station wagon, coupe and as a convertible. BMW will also introduce Gran Turismo and Gran Coupe guises as well. The last one, together with the Coupe and the Convertible will be called 4-Series.



When it comes to sales, BMW is ahead of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class99.602 to 81.697, respectively. Despite these numbers, the gap between the BMW sedan and the C-Class is big. The first one managed to deliver 75.183 and the last one only 70.493. One thing is for sure, Mercedes-Benz will not offer the Estate version of the C-Class in the US, but instead they know for sure that the SUVs and the light trucks are the way to go. We will have the opportunity to see the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class next year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. It will be available for purchase starting August 2014. Source: carscoop.blogspot
