C stands for Compact Class, yet this evergreen Mercedes-Benz sales champion tends to follow in its bigger siblings’ footsteps by introducing many innovations to the compact executive sedan market. NamWheels brings you some highlights of the new W206 model while recapping those of its ancestors…
The satin sledgehammers
A recent purchase by one of our staff members has spurred us on to finally delve into the history of certain performance cars. But don’t worry – we shall use this opportunity to cover other brands, genres and eras as well. In fact, why don’t you drop us a line and tell us which car’s history you’d like to see?
Like the Audi A4 and BMW’s 3-Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class firmly belongs in the daily traffic around Namibian towns. NamWheels gives you a brief lineage (model history) of this accomplished German sedan.
The impressive split
Seasoned readers will know what’s coming – yup, another confession. The first car I ever owned and the car I owned the longest, was a C-Class. When I despondently handed over the keys last year it had covered 233,000km and was still as tight as a drum.
