Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Recommended Posts

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a line of compact executive cars produced by Daimler AG. Introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the 190 (W201) range, the C-Class was the smallest model in the marque's line-up until the W168 A-Class arrived in 1997. The C-Class built at Mercedes-Benz factories in Sindelfingen and Bremen, Germany as well as numerous satellite factories in other countries. The first C-Class (W202) sedan produced on 1 June 1993 and the opening of the second generation (W203) rolled off the assembly line on 18 July 2000. The C-Class has been available with a 4Matic (i.e., four-wheel drive) option since 2002. The third generation (W204) was launched in 2007 while the latest generation C-Class (W205) came out in 2014.

Though initially available as a sedan and a station wagon, the W203 series in 2000 debuted a fastback coupé (SportCoupé) version that, when face-lifted, became the Mercedes-Benz CLC-Class. The CLC-Class remained in production until 2011 when a new W204 C-Class coupé replaced it for the 2012 model year.

W205 (2014–present)
The current generation W205 C-Class was launched at the 2014 North American International Auto Show. It is the first car to use the all-new Modular Rear Architecture (MRA) platform. The new structure is significantly lighter using aluminium and high strength steel extensively throughout the body, resulting in a 100-kilogram (220 lb) weight decrease.

The car was officially unveiled on 16 December 2013. W205 production commenced on 4 February 2014 at the Bremen plant.  Production also occurs at Mercedes-Benz plants in East London, South Africa, Brazil and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, United States. European sales began in March 2014, while the vehicle went on sale in North America in September 2014.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class 205 chassis spawned four C-Class bodystyles; Sedan (W205), Wagon (S205), Coupe (C205), and Cabriolet (A205).

The W205 Mercedes-Benz C-Class received a new look, which made its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, including exterior changes and new engines.

Production and sales
On 10 December 2009, Daimler announced the production of the C-Class will be concentrated at the Bremen plant with additional production in the United States for the domestic market.
