Mercedes C30 CDI Sportcoupé Promo Video
The second generation C-Class was introduced in 2000, with an even sportier
look than the previous generations, with a steeper front-end and shorter
rear-end. The sedan debuted with a range of straight-four and V6 gasoline
engines and straight-four and straight-five Diesels. Most of the engines
were carried over from the W202, but the C 320 was exclusive, offering 218
hp, also the C240 now had 2597 cc but output was unchanged at 170 hp. The
diesels now featured common rail direct injection and variable geometry turbochargers. Six-speed manual gearboxes
were now standard for nearly the entire range (except the C320 and C 270
CDI). For the first time, the number designations were no longer equivalent
to the engine displacement, more specifically in the C 180 (2.0 L), C 240
(2.6 L) and C 200 CDI (2.2 L).
In 2001, Mercedes increased the range, with the introduction of the new
T-Modell (station wagon) and Sportcoupé body types. The Sportcoupé was
actually a three-door liftback made to counter the BMW Compact, but like
its competitor, it proved unpopular with the younger buyers it was targeted
towards, due to high prices compared to the lower entry-level models it was
competing against, and unfavorable exchange rates. Although removed from
the North American lineup in 2005, it continued on sale in other markets.
From October 2000 until 2007, a total of 230.000 Sportcoupés were built in
the Bremen factory and in Brazil. In Canada, it was replaced by the
Mercedes-Benz B-Class. A new family of supercharged four cylinder engines,
dubbed M271, also debuted. All of them used the same 1.8 L engine, with
different designations according to horsepower levels, including
a version powered by natural gas. The 193 PS(142 kW/190 hp) C 230K was
initially available only in the Sportcoupé. 4MATIC four wheel drive
versions were also offered for the C 240 and C 320.
The C-Class was refreshed in early 2004. In this year, the interior styling
was changed in all three body styles. Different taillights were added to
the Sportcoupé and several all-new M272 and OM642 V6 engines were
introduced later in the year. These were available in both petrol and
diesel configuration, ranging between 2.5 L and 3.5 L, and the three-valve
twin spark design was replaced by the more standard four-valve design, now
with variable valve timing. The C 350 could now reach 272 PS (200 kW/268
hp), while the C 320 CDI was good for 224 PS (165 kW/221 hp). In addition,
these engines also received the new seven-speed 7G-Tronic automatic
transmission as optional, the diesel four cylinder's power was slightly
increased, and a more economical naturally-aspirated 1.8 L (C 160) was
added to the Sportcoupé lineup.
The C-Class is arguably one of the most popular automobiles in its class in
many of the European markets. The second generation was for a long time
after its release the second most popular new car in the German market,
right after the Volkswagen Golf, and in 2002 it achieved success in the
field of safety by scoring the maximum five stars in a EuroNCAP crash test.
In the United States, the C-Class automobiles are the least expensive of
the Mercedes-Benz lineup. However the W203 C-Class did acquire a poor
reputation for reliability compared to other Mercedes-Benz models, an area
which was targeted for improvement in the replacement model.
The last W203 C-Class sedan was produced on December 14, 2006 at the
Sindelfingen plant, after almost 630,000 units of the sedan were produced.
However, the W203 Sportcoupé hatchback will continue to be produced in
Brazil beyond this date, since Mercedes-Benz does not
foresee producing a W204 Sportcoupé. Indeed, it has decided to offer an
updated W203-2 or CL203 Sportcoupé with a new restyled front end inspired
by the W204 sedan and an improved engine range parallel to the one of the
W204. This new car will take the name of CLC-Class.
After the success of the AMG models in the previous generation,
Mercedes-Benz attempted to increase sales by introducing two different AMG
versions in the new model, also in 2001. The C 32 AMG scaled back down to a
3.2 L V6 engine, to match the E46 M3 displacement and improve weight
distribution, but it required a twin-screw type Supercharger (manufactured by IHI) to reach 354 PS
(260 kW/349 hp) at 6100 rpm and 450 Nm (332 ft•lbf) at 4400 rpm. Like its
predecessors, it used a five-speed automatic, helping it to complete a
0-100km/h sprint within 5.2 seconds. The second version was C 30 CDI AMG,
using a 3.0 L five-cylinder engine, capable of 231 PS(170 kW/228 hp) at
3800 rpm and 540 Nm (398 ft•lbf) at 2000 rpm. Both were available in all
three body styles, but the diesel model did not reach sales expectations
and was retired in 2004, as well as the C 32 AMG Sportcoupé.
