The Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W203) is the internal designation for a series of compact executive cars manufactured and marketed by DaimlerChrysler as the second generation of the C-Class from 2000 to early 2007, in sedan/saloon, three-door liftback (marketed as the SportCoupé and sub-designated CL203), and station wagon/estate (sub-designated S-203) body styles.
The W203 C-design Class’s began in mid-1994, and the final design was approved by the executive board in December 1995. On April 20, 1998, and March 4, 1999, design patents were filed.
