Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Parkers 2015-07-23

First launched in 1993, taking over from the solid, sturdy but rather un-inspiring 190E, the Mercedes Benz C-Class saloon and estate models (1996-on) became the new entry-level model and the perfect introduction for many to the world of Mercedes Benz ownership. Battling against the BMW 3 Series and Audi 80 (and later Audi A4) the C-Class was renowned for build quality and classy image.

The C-Class saloon is the popular model in the range and the latest version was launched in 2014, with an all-new C-Class Estate version joining soon after. The latest addition to the range is the new C-Class Coupe that will replace the current model first launched in 2011.
