2021 Mercedes C-Class: all-new?

 


Just like with the 2021 S-Class, it is very hard to tell the new C-Class from the current one. At least on this profile spy shot. Again, (just like the S-Class) the glass area looks almost exactly the same. And so does the A-pillar. While the C-pillar does appear a bit more slanted, it could just be the photo.

And the sunroof looks like it went from a big oversized one, back to a small 90's style design (???)

Mercedes sedans have often (but not always) been pretty conservative looking. But they always looked "very new" when a new generation was announced. Sometimes even very different from the previous one. These days it seems the company is either afraid of anything remotely new looking or just plain lazy.

You keep acting like Mercedes is the only one that does evolutionary design language. Welcome to almost all luxury brands these days.

Also, you really think they won't have a huge sunroof too? Seeing one tester is not indicative of all options available on all models of a yet to be revealed vehicle.

Like Patrick said, this is just evolutionary design. The Golf has been doing this for years, and the Porsche 911 too. Heck, the 3-series was also like that (until BMW screwed everything up with the new one). It's starting to sound like Vince has a personal agenda against Mercedes. If only he had this critical take on his beloved Hyundais and Kias...
