This means passengers will have more room to get comfortable for those long trips. The C-Class' job has never been tougher, then, which is why these upgrades to both the saloon and the C-Class estate are timely.

With a helping hand from the AMG side of the family the new G63 will boast the sort of power that one might more typically expect from a Mercedes sports vehicle, a full 577 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. As before, headlights come as standard with halogen illumination but LED running lights are standard in all models.

We've already driven the auto and know all about it, however, we'll still take you through the changes made to the vehicle.

At the interior, the new C-Class will get a fully digital instrument display and multimedia system, with a center console available in open-pore brown walnut or open-pore anthracite oak. The facelift S-Class also gets a new set of wheels as compared to the older auto.

A new steering wheel, with touch-sensitive controls that will respond to swiping motions like the screen of a smartphone, should make it easier to access in-car system without removing your hand from the wheel. Also, Keyless Go is now fitted standard across the range.

The profile showcases the extra perks of the Maybach version, mainly the 215 inches (5,461 millimeters) length, along with a spacious 132.5-inch (3,365.5-mm) wheelbase.

Inside, it's much like the one current model save for one significant option. Company officials told the newspaper Mercedes was deciding "whether a trade show like Detroit fits with the cadence of our launch calendar and whether there's a more effective format for our needs". Additionally, the carmaker will also reveal its latest-generation plug-in hybrid models with diesel-hybrid powertrains.

2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 generates 577 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque that is healthy gains of 161 hp and 177 lb-ft over the base G-Class.

To do so, the automaker is adding a new grille exclusive to the Maybach S-Class and offering buyers the option to deck out the stretched sedan in two-tone paintwork, with nine color combinations on offer. Across the board, though, prices are expected to rise by around £1000, meaning our recommended C220d Sport models are likely to cost around £33,500. That's likely to mean a small increase in the list price to a starting figure of around £30,000, although the vehicle maker is hoping that stronger residual values could deliver a small reduction in monthly rates.

The new-look C-Class combines emotionality with intelligence.
