There are new and redesigned cars coming out all the time. But these look so enticing you should consider holding off on other purchases until you've had a chance to check them out. Working with Jack Nerad of Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com and Karl Brauer of Edmunds.com, we've selected 10 that might well be worth the wait.
Mercedes-Benz C-class
Entry luxury sedan
Mercedes-Benz C-class
Expected release: August 2007
The new C-class follows the recent redesign of the brand's flagship S-class, giving the car a sharper-edged look. It's also slightly larger, inside and out than the current version.

The C-class will have the active suspension system that Mercedes is now calling "Agility Control." It automatically adjusts the suspension to suit the driver's behavior as well as road conditions. A system with driver-selectable settings will be available later in 2007.

As with the current C-class, the new version will be available in Sport and Luxury versions. In addition to different engine and transmission choices, each version will have a different grille. Luxury versions will get the traditional stand-up hood ornament while sport versions will have the three-pointed star in the center of the grill.

The C-class will have an improved COMAND system for entertainment and navigation similar to the one now used in the company's S-class sedans.
