Here are some new spy photos of the upcoming facelifted Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The current generation C-Class has already been on the market since 2007, and in this competitive segment it needs to keep a fresh face. Both the next-generation BMW 3-Series and a facelifted Audi A4 are expected later this year.

Features include a new set of headlights as well as tail lamps, new bumper at the front and a modified one at the back. From what we know, the C-Class also gets a new bonnet, although, that's hard to spot in these photographs.

Interior upgrades will also come with the facelift and perhaps performance upgrades for some of the engines in the C-Class lineup, but there are no fixed details on that.

Expected to come are also C-Class coupe/cabriolet variants, since Mercedes-Benz is going in that direction with the S-Class Coupe replacing the CL model and the E-Class Coupe taking the place of the former CLK.

The facelifted C-Class will go on sale later this year, likely before BMW introduces the new 3-Series.
