Report: Next gen Mercedes-Benz C-Class to be larger and lighter, to be visually inspired by CLA-Class

Mercedes-Benz is preparing to unveil an all-new C-Class very soon as the current generation ages ever so gracefully into the pages of history. That said, WorldCarFans reports that the next-generation C-Class will be larger and yet, lighter than its outgoing predecessor.

The report came from Germany’s Autobild, who’ve apparently learned that the next generation C-Class will ride on Mercedes-Benz’s latest modular platform, allowing for a slight increase in size and a shape that will mimic that of the all-new CLA-Class.

The result will obviously be more interior room, specifically for the rear seating arrangements, as well as a larger boot.

Other details have yet to be confirmed, though both Autobild and WCF speculate that the usual range of diesel and gasoline engines will be offered in the new C-Class. WCF also says that we can expect a hybrid and plug-in hybrid variant, as well as the beloved AMG models that will done a new 4.0L V8 good for 462hp.

Sounds about right…
