Mercedes C180 History

The first generation (1993-2000) of the C-Class had much the same design as the previous 190E, except it was rounder and smoother in appearance. This car was originally only available in saloon version, with the estate version being introduced in 1996. The safety test scores on this version were a bit of a concern, and would need to be addressed on the next version. It had a makeover in 1997 which didn’t change to many things.

The second generation (2000-06) had more economical engines and 6-speed manual gearboxes were made standard across the European market. The safety features were better than the predecessor. This vehicle had a makeover in 2004 with a new and classier interior design. A new engine range was also introduced.

The third generation (2007 - ) had a new design which took features from the S-class and CLS –class which made it slightly larger than its predecessors. In 2011 it had a makeover which gave it a much classier interior and some good features on the dashboard design. There was also some exterior and mechanical changes made and this is the current version on the market.
