Mercedes has taken the wraps off the C-Class L at the Beijing Motor Show.

Designed exclusively for Chinese customers, the C-Class L measures 4766mm long and has a wheelbase that has been stretched 80mm to 2920mm. The additional length benefits rear seat passengers who will now enjoy best-in-class rear seat legroom.

Since model is typically driven by a chauffeur, Mercedes spruced up the rear passenger compartment with privacy glass and controls which can electrically adjust the front passenger seat.

Detailed specifications were not released, but the company says the model can be equipped with a variety of engines that have outputs ranging from 156 PS (115 kW) to 367 PS (270 kW).
