Launched! 2012 Mercedes-Benz (refreshed) C-Class

Thankfully the car hasn’t changed much for 2012 as I always regarded this C-Class model to be one of the best looking sedans out there. “Refresh” touches were applied to the front end of the car through the use of a new bumper design and a revised grille. The hood is made from aluminum, adding weight-reduction functionality to beauty, sitting atop redesigned headlamps which are a bit softer in my opinion.

The rear end of the car remains “as is” which is another great thing, but I do get the feeling that Mercedes didn’t know whether to soften the car up or retain its aggressive lines. The upcoming C350 model will utilize a new V6 engine which generates 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque (was previously 268 hp and 258 lb-ft respectively).

The interior gets the same high-grade materials used in the most recent version, but the 2012 model gets a new dashboard-integrated monitor, whereas the old model had a pop-up version. What I would really be excited to see is a wagon version of the C63 AMG model (similar to the white model in the image above). That would be delicious!
