We've snapped many spy shots of the next generation Mercedes C-Class, and now a Wheels24 reader spotted the car in the Free State.

Our latest spy photos were taken by Wheels24 reader Arno Rossouw. He spotted the cars between Bloemfontein and Winburg and according to him the semi-disguised vehicles were left-hand-drive models.

Arno managed to get some photos of the cars but as soon as the driver spotted him he sped off.

However, these photos confirm that the next C-Class will take styling cues from the new S-Class. For example the front and rear design reflects that of its range-topping sibling.

According to some insider info, the new C-Class will get a longer platform to increase interior space, especially at the rear.

Mercedes will apparently launch the long-awaited C-Class at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year. South African sales are expected to kick of in September 2007.
