Spied: 2014 Mercedes C-Class

Spy photographers have snapped the first images of the upcoming C-Class compact executive sedan, undergoing chassis testing in Germany.

Engineers are adamant on protecting overall styling, so black body panels have been bolted onto the sheet metal to hide the overall design. We can see the sloping roofline and rather rounded fascia, which all mirror the CLS coupé. Despite bolt-on rear lights, the production model will wear wraparound clusters that are wider and shorter than the current model's.

Although it's too early to anticipate powertrains, rumours suggest the new C-Class will be powered by three-cylinder, four-cylinder, and six-cylinder engines, some available with cylinder-deactivation technology. Petrol and diesel hybrid models may also be offered, all linked to an 27bhp (27PS/20kW) electric motor.

Launching in Spring 2014, production will be transferred to the U.S from Germany.

The new C-Class will be longer, lower, and wider than the current model,
but crucially, it will be lighter
