Just in the news today:
Set to arrive in U.S. Mercedes-Benz dealerships on August 7, the next-
generation 2008 C-Class sedan is larger than its highly successful
predecessor, with a greater emphasis on driving dynamics, comfort and
safety. The C300 Sport and Luxury models will be available with an all
new 4MATIC all- wheel-drive system mated to a seven-speed automatic
transmission starting in September.
And I can't understand why. BMW, Audi, Saab, Volvo all sell similar-
size wagons here. Why did MB drop the C-class wagon a few years ago?
I actually thought it looked better than the sedan!
Perhaps they see it as a market the new GLK-class will cover.
I bet it's now the same size as the W123...
Funny how the ads shown in GB feature the version without the upright star.
