This is from WorldCarFans.com:



Are these the first official drawings of the 2011 Mercedes C-Class facelift? AutoBild says yes, but we're not entirely convinced.

Doubts aside, the pictures show an updated sedan with a revised front fascia, a new hood, and SL-inspired headlights with LED turn signals. Inside, the cabin has been completely revamped with a redesigned dashboard, a new instrument cluster, and an integrated COMAND display.

Under the hood, a variety of engines will be available. Notable choices will likely include the 225 kW (306 PS / 302 hp) 350 BlueEFFICIENCY, the 195 kW (265 PS / 262 hp) 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and the 150 kW (204 PS / 201 hp) 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY. Of course, there will also be the C 63 AMG with a 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 that produces 451 hp (336 kW / 457 PS) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque.

The car will reportedly be introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, so expect to learn more in the coming months.

Head over to AutoBild to check out the rest of the images.

Shameless bump.

93 views and not a single comment on whether the facelift is ugly or not. LOL - I expected more for current W204 owners.

I have a goal to buy a C300 in a couple of years so I hope the new design is as beautiful as the present model. To see the actual car will be the deciding factor for me.

Not really liking the headlights compared to current models. Looks a bit like an Infinity G or M series. Aside from that, there's not much that can be taken away from that picture.

I think I will be keeping my C for a while:D
Ugly LED fogs..HID's are way better I'd probably say!!
:thumbsup: Both comments are dead on. With the new design language that I don't fully like based on the pictures, as well as all the changes to the 2011 W204 (car always starts in C mode and there is no button to turn off ESP, even partially), I will be keeping my C for a while.
