Mercedes Benz C-Class Models and C-Class History

Mercedes-Benz released the C-Class C280 in 1998, featuring the new V-type engine technology with a 2.8-liter unit. The same year, BabySmart car seats, BrakeAssist and side-impact airbags were also added. The C-Class dropped the 2.3-liter supercharged engine for 1999, with new leather seating surfaces added as a standard feature. TeleAid was added to the C-Class in 1999, alongside a Touch Shift auto-manual transmission, and free scheduled maintenance throughout the covered warranty period. A redesigned C-Class debuted in 2001, with two new engines, all-new safety features, improved sheet metal and more to love.

 

The news for 2002 was the all-new C230 Kompressor Sport Coupe and the C320 wagon. The 4Matic drive system was made available for sedan and wagon models in 2002, with updates to the gearbox and trim levels overall. Standard 17” wheels were added to all sport coupes, with a new steering wheel, aluminum pedals and new front brakes, updated suspension system and alloy wheels for the 2003 C-Class. An updated C-Class was released for 2004, with new dashboard, updated seats and interior accents, an improved transmission and upgraded suspension. For 2006, the wagon and coupe were discontinued, with the V6 being made standard, alongside updates to every trim level.

 

The CC ANMG was discontinued for 2007, marking the only change. An all-new C-Class debuted in 2008, boasting two engines, all-new standard and luxury features and many more thrills and tills. No major changes were in store for 2009, with a tire pressure monitoring system, new steering wheel and trim level updates rounding out the changes for 2010. While 2011 saw no major updates, 2012 saw a more powerful engine with a turbocharged four-cylinder available, a new seven-speed transmission and improved fuel efficiency. Model year 2013 got a new 3.5-liter V6 engine, stop-start technology and available mbrace2 smartphone-integrated telematics for all trim levels. Aside from a rear folding seat and updated trim levels, nothing was different for the 2014 C-Class.
