New spy pics give a better view of new taillights design. Also new on the facelifted C-Class will be front bumper and headlights, modified rear bumper with new taillamps, and a newly styled bonnet.

Here are the latest spy pics of the upcoming facelifted Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Still wearing some camo to mask changes to the front bumper and rear end, the main thing to note from this set of shots is that we now have a better look at the new rear taillights. The car is braking with the indicator lights on and we can see the design of those rear LED lights.

Also expected on the C-Class is a new set of headlights with integrated LED-strip (horizontal) daytime running lights, new front bumper and a modified one at the back, as well as, of course, the aforementioned new taillamps.

Engines choices are expected to remain the same. No news yet on whether Mercedes' new 3.5 liter V6 will replace the current 3.5 liter that tops out the C-Class range, excluding the AMG model.

The new C-Class will be going on sale soon (within the next few months) as Mercedes will likely try to beat BMW and Audi to the punch - a next-generation 3-Series is due later this year and a facelifted A4 is also on the way.
