More dynamic, impressive and attractive: Mercedes-Benz makes new emphases in the C-Class
Four years after its launch, Mercedes-Benz is significantly upgrading the successful C-Class in terms of technology, equipment and design. The suspension, steering and six-speed manual transmission have a more sporty configuration, ensuring that the C-Class offers an even more agile driving experience. From summer 2004 a 192 hp supercharged four-cylinder engine will join the engine range available for the Saloon and Estate models. In future the C 220 CDI will have an output of 150 hp, which is 7 hp more than before. With the new 367 hp C 55 AMG Mercedes-Benz is offering an eight-cylinder unit for the first time in this model series.
The interior of the new C-Class has been upgraded with a new cockpit design with sophisticated new controls, line-specific seats and automatic climate control as standard. The innovative, more scratch-resistant paintwork based on nano-technology is likewise standard. Bi-xenon headlamps with cornering light function, steering-wheel gearshift buttons for the automatic transmission and new audio/navigation systems round off the highly desirable, high-tech specification.
Even at standstill the redesigned front end with its bumper, radiator grille and headlamps conveys the dynamic characteristics of this Mercedes model series, which is available as a Saloon, Estate and Sports Coupé.
With state-of-the-art technology, good long-distance comfort and sporty agility, the C-Class has won the hearts of more than 1.26 million drivers worldwide since May 2000. Never before has Mercedes-Benz sold so many vehicles from one model series in such a short time.
In addition to the sporty and elegant Saloon, the C-Class model family features the versatile Estate as well as the youthful and agile Sports Coupé, both of which were launched in 2001.
Mercedes-Benz has now reinforced the well-proven characteristics of the C-Class with an intensive model revision, at the same time making new emphases in terms of dynamism, comfort and perceived value.
