The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has received a digital makeover transforming the sedan into a hatchback.

Back in September we heard an interesting rumor concerning Mercedes-Benz's plan to introduce a five-door liftback/hatchback version of the 2014 C-Class to tackle the BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo. The same report indicated it will be the "sportiest and most athletic" version of the C-Class until the 2015 launch of the coupe.

Theophilus Chin has envisioned a potential look for a hatchback C-Class, a model believed to see the light of day in 2014. Other body styles to join the range are a coupe and estate, along with a China-only extended wheelbase model as well as a range-topping C63 AMG sedan which is due late next year. Moreover, expect to see a hybrid variant coming in 2015 while reports are also indicating a five-door SportCoupe C-Class to rival the Audi A5 Sportback.
