Stuttgart â€” An impressive combination of ride comfort and agility is the hallmark of the new C-Class, which celebrated its world premiere today in Stuttgart.

â€œWith the new C-Class, we are yet again raising the bar in this important segment of the market â€“ and thatâ€™s true right across the board, especially in terms of safety, comfort and agility,â€ declared Dr. Dieter Zetsche, CEO of DaimlerChrysler AG and head of the Mercedes Car Group, at the world pre-miere, which was held in the Mercedes-Benz World in Stuttgart. â€œWith its unique balance of driving characteristics, the fourth C-Class generation em-bodies a new driving culture in the compact premium car segment. We are thus offering our customers the most versatile and majestic C-Class of all time â€“ and, for the first time, in two attractive outfits.â€
First Mercedes saloon with two different faces
All the goodness of the Honda Civic Si coupe has rubbed off onto 2007 Honda Civic Si Sedan. The same 197-horsepower iVTEC 2.0-liter engine screams to an 8,000-rpm redline, the same transmission shifts quickly through six gears, the same limited-slip differential delivers great punch exiting the corners and the same sport seats help you resist the G-forces.
The Civic Si sedan is 2 inches longer than the coupe and weighs 60 pounds more, but it has the same high-performance personality and even makes the same numbers at the test track. It just happens to have four doors. This is great news.
