Spyshots: Next Mercedes C-Class Estate/Wagon Looks Good

You could say the Mercedes has developed a bit of an obsession with car design. This is evident in the estates, once purely functional cars that now have to be dolled up and called "shooting brakes".

The C-Estate has a connecting chrome strip between its LED taillights and

Other visible changes include two character lines down the side instead of just one which converge towards each other but never touch. This elegant feature is an obvious reference to the W222 S-Class, the flagship Mercedes model that debuted this design.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
