        i'm guessing they're going to move to a hard top like the 3 series, hence the ugly ass prototype roof.

        So we're going to have a C cab and an E cab?

        The rear disguise gives the car the appearance of the BMW E63/E64, wonder if it will be called the D-Klasse?
        Their could be a hardtop but the actual roof looks Like one of those clip-on roofs.
      • Yeah, your right Scott. It does kind of have a E64 thing going on at the back. Although it is nowhere near as radical......Damn, I miss Bangle.....

        It's me or ot looks super tiny? Cant see how this can compete with a 4er or A5, it's just too small.

        Ugly? I think the lines are quite nice. Obviously the disguise panel for the top looks quirky, but that won't remain.

        The E cab will either have to go, or move way up market. Listen, MB has tried to pass the e-coupe and cab off as something they are not for years. They are nice cars, but they share their bones with a C-class. I was very dissapointed when MB all but lied, trying to say this wasn't the case. When one of our trainers was here, I removed the trunk lining on a C sedan, and E sedan, and an E cab. I then asked him to tell me, which one of these is not like the other. When you looked at the welding points, you could see that the E-cab and C-sedan were nearly identical, while the E-sedan was noticably different. Combine that with the exact same wheel-base and track as the C, and well????

        So, the next E-cab, if there is one, can't simply be a jacked up C-class, since it appears a C-cab is finally a reality.
        What I'd really like to see is a CLS cab. Actual two door, but with the lines and wheelbase on the CLS. That would be an interesting niche.

          No car it is pictured close enough to gauge. But based on the driver, it looks to be a good size. Plus the next C is supposed to longer and wider.

          Yes very true. There hasn't been a true E Coupe and Cabrio since the C124 bowed out in 1995. Hopefully Mercedes is already working a true E-Class line for 2016, sedan, wagon, coupe and convertible to take on the 5 and 6 Series cars. The E coupe back in the day was like 10K more than the sedan, not the same or less in price. That told me back in 2010 that the E Coupe and Cab were C-Class based.

          On this one the door handles appear to be ON the shoulder line instead of above it, as usual.

          First ever C class cabrio? In name maybe. For the rest not so much. More like the 4th.

          Or a 6-Series competitor? 2dr CLS is what next E Klasse Coupe is to become, if it moves upmarket, no?

          Also, don't forget this: MB is introducing new rear wheel drive platform, and it is a modular one. If I am correct, it is called MRA? So now, the only question that remains is - which Klasses are going to share it? My guess is - C and E definitely (and all their variants), but I still haven't figured out if the new S is based on same that platform? Like it or not, modular platforms are coming here to stay, and some Klasses are going to lose their 'bespokenes'.

          Such a beautiful car ruined by a pointless dropping line.

          oh boy. Those proportions don't look very promising.
        • Mr. Mercedes

          Mr. Mercedes Well-Known Member

          The proportions appear to be perfect for a cab of this size. It's just that stupid roof that's throwing everyone off. It's obviously not what it will be.
        • I like it, really do. I like the top because too me looks like a mini CL from '99. From what I know the E coupe is at this moment rival with the A5 and 4 series BMW.

          Can you guys borrow me your x rays glasses so I can decide if it's ugly or nice as you say? :D

          The S-class is on the modular MRA platform too.

            Hi guys,
            I've read from thral e site about the BMW 328i. Someone there complains about the 2l turbo 4 engine burns oil.This is a new engine and things like that already happens ! That really sucks. Some people think it 's natural for the small turbo engine. I don't know if I can buy that. So my question is , anyone who owns the C250 ( which is also a turbo 4cyl) experience the loss of engine oil? if so, what mileage do you have? I hope MB does not have that kind of problem.

            2016 Mercedes-Benz C Class Cabriolet Spy Shots

            These are the first spy shots of prototypes for the convertible version of the next-generation Mercedes-Benz C Class, which has already been confirmed by the automaker’s U.S. chief and is expected on the market sometime in 2015, a full year after the launch of the new C Class sedan.

            Public road trials of Mercedes’ new C Class sedan have been underway for more than a year, with numerous spy shots and even a spy video already posted on Motor Authority.

            However, the C Class convertible, likely to be called a C Class Cabriolet and due as a 2016 model, has only just begun real-world testing.

            This prototype is fitted with a lightweight carbon fiber canopy, though this is only a temporary unit designed to hide an automatic folding soft-top roof. Mercedes is likely to forgo a retractable hardtop in favor of the lighter and less expensive soft-top, just as it has with the E Class Cabrio and upcoming S Class Cabrio.

            On most of the prototypes, the side mirrors are mounted on the doors, whereas on the sedan these are mounted at the base of the A-pillar.

            The C Class Cabrio’s wheelbase is also noticeably shorter than that of the C Class sedan, and currently it looks like its rear section is more rounded and a tad wider.

            Finally, a glimpse of the interior reveals a conventional, multi-function steering wheel design.
