On a visual level, the new C-Class represents a bold departure from its predecessor. Its striking, dynamic design radiates sensuous clarity and arouses emotions.Modern aesthetics were the source of inspiration for the new saloon's sensuous lines and surfaces, whose harmony and dynamism directly touch everyone. The designers created minimalist, purist forms for the C‑Class which emphasise its intelligent technology and engineering. The clearly defined surfaces also deliberately display a degree of tension, lending them a modern and at the same time emotional character. Precise lines and sculptural surfaces create progressive light and shadow effects.
