Group C

After seven years of life the new C-Class will be presented in the year. The sedan shows with the S-Class. Under the CL a two-door hatchback variant is

One more year: Then the new C-Class with new outfit and new contents will come market. The new development running the internal factory code replaces a model (W202) which until today all all derivatives inclusive the SLK 1.8 million have been produced. the middle of the next year the mark will be topped

With that the actual is even more successful its predecessor, the Baby-Benz 190 (W201) in ten years made it up to 1.9 million However, above all the C-Class its success to

the additional model which made sure the decline of registrations of the sedan was (see graphics below ). Auto Motor und Sport by MBEP webmaster

After years of monoculture of the sedan the came carefully measured the market in June 1996, a later the two-seater SLK. In the of 1997 the four-seater CLK Coupe and in the year the CLK Cabrio. Such a variety creates incentives to buy and the number of C-Classes sold world-wide continually. 1998 was the successful year with sales.

With that Mercedes those example which BMW demonstrated with the 3-Series. however still lacks the priced base model BMW practises it in the form of the Compact. the new series this last gap in the will be closed. The two-door CL, so the internal naming, shall be roughly at the same time as the So at least the plan is.

But most and most sold model is and be the sedan, for which until now 70 per cent of

all buyers have for. It shall get even attractive in the new look. On the numerous where mostly a scale is the new C-model indeed comes like a small S-Class.

impression surely isn’t unintentional. Similarly looking elements contribute to that the under a common cover double-headlights and the rear lights in their base form are

But also the coupe-like body formal similarities with its distinct wedge shape and the inclined front- and rear

With the basic dimensions will change compared to the Roughly 2,70 metres and a length of just over metres result in ideal for a compact rear-drive with overhangs and clearly structured for trunk and engine.

With the hood can clearly drop steeply than up to now, the high inline six-cylinders part of the programme anymore.

In the is no need for action. In comparison to the the actual model already to the roomiest representatives of its class. it should succeed to win one or the other through clever design.

On the hand the rich security demands volume. So additionally to the airbags sidebags in the front and doors are designated and out of both of the roof in case of emergency window airbags which from the A- to the C-pillar. Eventually one want to offer less the main rival BMW.

That’s also valid for the which shall be upgraded in and quantity. So the air condition comes as equipment of the new C-Class and ESP is designated at for the higher motorized models extra charge.

Apart that the option list new high-tech options for the car segment, like the Comand-system (inclusive known from the S-Class, the radar Distronic, the multi steering wheel or the chipcard for door opening and engine (Keyless-Go).

Below the bodywork well-tried and known components are The new generation of the light metal engines isn’t ready Their use is designated at the earliest one after the start of the new C-Class. them possibly the gasoline-direct-ignition have its premiere at Mercedes the sulphur problem in the fuel off the table until then.

But with the actually known the C-Class can be motorized attractively as slight modifications are to come up. As the entrance begins with and 122hp. In the C200 the two-litre shall deliver roughly The same unit will easily 190hp in the supercharger For comfort oriented C-Class the well-known aluminium-V6 with 2.4 and 2.8 displacement suggests itself output will differ slightly from the up to now figures and 204hp) ((AMS errs the latter, the actual figure is for the C280)).

With the diesels the new after all can fall back on the fresh common-rail units.

The used 2.2-litres with 102 and run economically and comfortable, the stronger probably will get a power to 140hp ((In a later from April 1999 AMS that to 143hp)) by turbocharger variable geometry (VTG ((= Turbolader Geometrie = variable geometry))).

Above that a new five-cylinder common-rail diesel shall derive roughly ((In a later issue AMS that to 170hp)) from 2.7 displacement. An economy diesel to 1.8-litres on the other hand only make sense for the operation in taxis.

Fundamental innovations are planned for the For the first time in the new C-Class models a variable CVT-automatic ((Continous Variable Transmission)) be used. Apart from the known five-gear automatic are ready for use. As an option automatic transmissions with six will have to be had. The is valid for the manual transmission

The two-door CL which is roughly 15 shorter and also lighter will be delivered with engines only. At last the C with tail gate as entry-level model shall a clear price distance to the It shall profit from the agile road behaviour by the rack and pinion steering more than the four-door.

fits into the concept. the compact CL shall attract younger buyers with its appearance and its price (below DM ((= USD 21.500 assumed USD 1 = DM 1.85; BMW Compact currently costs DM = USD 19.700; W202 C180 currently starts at DM 47.444

The new group C variants will follow in short intervals offers all for that.

Second C-Youth

time: The Mercedes C-Class shortly before its replacement. The is more sporty and thus find more young

The countdown is running and is fully in as it seems. In early summer Mercedes presents the C-Class two (internally called W203). that the replacement of the current is due after less than years (The 190`s life was more than years).

For the testing-engineeers und developers this turning into the home Last adjustment tests for transmissions, chassis, brakes and even more efficient The only thing on which no fold is changed anymore is the

It adapts to the new, dynamic of the house of DaimlerChrysler. The W203 like the little brother of the Rising wedge shape, double-headlamps, triangled rear turn signals in the mirrors. flashy: The arch-shaped run of the seam the rear lights to the wheel Just like the S-Class.

the sporty and young outfit mainly aims at younger, people earning a good They finally shall lower the average of the customer’s from ((the present)) 54. (By the With the 190’s it was 52 years). And not at Somewhen the race successes of the 1 finally have to be effective.

And the new grows only very circa three to four in length (4.55 metres Also between front- and the distance is growing (plus six More wheelbase always is the which comes to the passenger`s More legroom in the rear, comfort in the spring-absorber adjustment.

Mercedes also swaps the old steering against a more and lighter rack and pinion So that the C keeps at driving it optically promises.

That Mercedes works at level with the theme active as well as passive, to be emphasized. Six, probably eight airbags protect the in the case of a crash, if from or from the side. In the works is a airbag, too, to prevent injuries of the ankle points. If it already be available at the presentation of the car is unclear.

It’s the same the question which engines work in the new C-Class. Mercedes silent.

But we expect, that the engines will start at and the diesel engines at two litres ((see grey backgound below)).

All diesel engines have common-rail direct-ignition and of fulfill the exhaust emissions D3 ((That`s an European norm)). in 2002 the 2.7-litre CDI with 160hp will be ready. the gasoline engines in the beginning will still be the old four-cylinders, will be replaced by a new generation in They will have, like already the six- and three valves and two spark per combustion space.

Furthermore they form the for the direct gasoline ignition to further lower fuel Target: Six litres ((per 47.09mpg UK, 39.21mpg US)) and the emissions standard D4 ((for a of W203 and W202 engines see background table below)).

For that of course efficient changes mustn’t be missed. are five- and six speed transmissions as as a five-speed automatic transmission transversal oriented tiptronic like with the S-Class. the automatic clutch system AKS is

With the trimming some still goes on. EPS and air-condition as standard. The option list tasty tidbits which now are left to the S-Class: Keyless-go, the and starting of the car by chipcard, as well as with multi-function steering telephone with speech (Linguatronic).

Nevertheless shall be to remain within an acceptable with the prices. The C180

will start at roughly DM ((the price of the W202 sedan starts at DM 47.444 in
