Debuts at NAIAS in January

Mercedes-Benz has published a small batch of photos showing the interior cabin of the all-new C-Class (W205), following a teaser video released last weekend.

Several hours ago we posted the very first pics with the V-Class and now Mercedes-Benz is showing the interior of the fourth-gen C-Class which is due in January at NAIAS in Detroit. The cabin design follows the recent trend of Mercedes-Benz models, boasting a refined layout (with the exception of the touchscreen display) and a premium finish. It will be offered as standard with a 7-inch free-standing central display or an optional 8.4-inch color monitor along with an optional head-up display and a touch-controlled pad.

People inside will benefit from an innovative AC system which uses GPS data to detect tunnels to automatically close the air recirculation flap so that fume filled air won't enter the cabin. The new C-Class will also have a front passenger seat featuring a sensor which will disengage the front passenger airbag once it detects a child seat is in place.

Mercedes-Benz says the 2014 C-Class will have a "best in class" weight and an "unparalleled" structural integrity for this segment. Depending on selected engine, the new model will be up to 100 kg (220 lbs) lighter than its predecessor which will bring a 20 percent fuel consumption reduction without affecting power.

Also depending on engine choice will be the possibility to order an optional Airmatic air suspension which will allow the driver to choose between Comfort, ECO, Sport and Sport Plus modes that will alter damper settings. The system also comes with a self-leveling feature lowering the car's ride height during highway speeds in order to reduce fuel consumption and improve aerodynamics.

Expect more teasers and info to be released in the upcoming weeks to create a momentum for the car's Detroit arrival in January.

Seeing these shots of the 2014 C Class, I am not impressed. I have had 7 new C Class's up to now and this doesn't bode well, that touchscreen looks like a cheap tack on. Will have to see it in the metal of course but I don't know where they did their customer/market research.

The position of the screen is to allow the driver to see it with minimum distraction from the road.

Wow! Such an interesting design. It takes a while to get used to it, but after that, it becomes a top level design along with quality! Nice!

The interior looks great, but considering the photos we've seen so far of the test cars, i bet it will lag behind BMW's 3-series exterior design, or Audi's A4 for that matter. It'll look like a shrunken S-Class.

If this is true to form, definitely a game changer. I've always been a fan of sloping dashes, and this is fantastic. With the introduction of the CLA, it looks like Merc is doubling down on design. Glad to see it.

Doesn't seem compact or sporty. The C always felt like a 'big' small car with sporty overtones. Maybe the column shifter is throwing me-I still don't get that. I understand that this car is growing in size to differentiate it from the CLA, but my initial feeling is that one is too small and the other too big.

i hope their not considering that android looking touch pad it using the 3 buttons should be do-able without looking and that looks far from achievable on that

A3 is in a lower class. The closest to the new C-Class is the A4 - possibly.
