New spy shots of the stretched variant of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class for the Chinese car market. Wheelbase will be extended by 100 millimeter to around 2900mm for more legroom in the back, as many car buyers in China like to be chauffeured around town. The stretchy C will debut on the April 2014 Beijing Auto Show.
Pic mirrored for a better comparison (via). Check roof line and lower-door line behind the B-pillar.
Another one (via,via). The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is made in China by the Beijing-Benz joint venture. It will be with 1.6T, 2.0T and 3.0T engines. The stretched C will compete with other China-made China-only stretched sedans such as the Audi A4L, the BMW 3Li, and the Volvo S60L.
I went out last month and got the current model C class, because the L models never handle well. Also got a super discount on a C260.
