[ UPDATE : The New 2007 Mercedes Benz C-Class (W204) has been unveiled! Click here for details. ]

The Mercedes Benz C-class has always been designed something like a small version of the current generation S-class. So when Mercedes Benz released it’s new W221 S-class recently, we can somewhat imagine how the next C-class is going to look like.

The new Mercedes Benz C-class will be positioned as a true sports saloon, focusing on excellent handling characteristics and a general sporty drive instead of just a smaller alternative to the E-class.

There are also news that the new C-class will come with Mercedes Benz’s first batch of KDI EVT engines. The supercharged KDI EVT is Mercedes Benz’s first camless valvetrain engine, which means the valves are electronically controlled instead of using a camshaft, rocker arms and etc. More details on camless valvetrain engines here.

The new Mercedes Benz C-class should be unveiled at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show.
