That includes the AMG cars as well.
Electrified, or hybridized, powertrains will deliver the power.
The C 63 will still be good for over 500 horsepower.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is undergoing a complete overhaul and while many details are still being kept under wraps, what was once rumoured to happen has been confirmed: The new-generation W206 C-Class will ditch all internal combustion engines that have more than 4 cylinders.
All upcoming 4-cylinder C-Class cars will see a 9-speed automatic transmission join in and it will send power, as per, to the rear or all four wheels. Outputs will obviously range wildly depending on the selected trim. According to Car And Driver, the C300 will once more be offered in North America and it will have access to 250 horsepower. 48-volt mild-hybrid technology will be rampant but these will be the lesser-powered versions.
Plug-in hybrids will take over from the V6 and V8 versions as the power-toppers. There are no details as to a direct AMG C43 replacement however an electrified C63 with over 500 horsepower reads as though it will be a sure bet.
Other updates to the new C-Class will include a new interior with a thoroughly revised dashboard that will incorporate a large touchscreen.
Finally, and the only true question we have is whether or not the wagon will return to Canada. As we know, the US lost that privilege years ago but Canada maintained it.
