We have new local spyshots of the yet-to-be-launched W205 Mercedes-Benz C-Class on a trailer, thanks to reader Dickson T.S. These offer us a closer look at what could be on offer.

On the trailer’s bottom deck are a silver C 200 and a black C 250. The C 200 is wearing 17-inch double-five spoke alloys while the C 250 has on 17-inch multi-spokers. International specs seem to suggest that the double-five spokers belong to the Avantgarde trim, while the multi-spokers come from the Exclusive trim.

While many options and combinations exist, the Avantgarde trim typically offers a sports grille, and the Exclusive trim offers a traditional grille with bonnet ornament.

So could we expect the Malaysian range to comprise C 200 Avantgarde and C 250 Exclusive variants – at least for the initial fully-imported (CBU) batch?

It also does seem likely that a range-topping version of the C 250 would sit above the two variants seen here. Could that be equipped with the AMG Line? And of course, there should be a monster C 63 AMG further down the road as well.

Since the compact exec’s unveiling last December, there have been long-wheelbase and estate versions, with a plug-in hybrid version on the way.
