Can you see the Difference?

Seen here for the first time testing alongside the current model is the new 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class – and it’s wearing thin disguising only.

Expect official unveiling at Geneva 2007 with sales starting shortly after. Also expect the wagon, snapped here during cold-climate testing in northern Sweden, to arrive six months later, in the autumn of next year.

Our sources state a cabriolet soft-top and coupe are also planned which we can only interpret as being the new CLK-Class which is also based on the same platform. As a world-exclusive, we can also reveal the interior of the new C-Class for the first time!

No, can’t see a difference – they both look like Hondas.

front and rear ends are different and so are the rear view mirrors.
newer model has more creases in body panelling.

They do look different on, which is the site that posted this article with a note 'Can you spot the difference?'

Eddie, are you getting a kick out of reposting other people's articles?

92% of all people suck at math. I am a part of the 9% who don't.
