    25 years ago, Mercedes-Benz introduced the Model 190 and laid the foundations for what has become the bestselling model series in the history of the brand: the C-Class. To date around six million C-Class Saloons, Estates and Sports Coup├ęs have been delivered to customers. On March 31, 2007 the fourth generation of this bestselling Mercedes appeared in the showrooms of company-owned Mercedes sales outlets and dealerships throughout Europe to continue this success story. In Europe alone, around 60,000 orders have already been received for the Saloon. The latest evolution of the C-Class makes its Australian debut this coming July.
    At the beginning of the 1980s, the news that Mercedes-Benz was working on a new model series below the E-Class was a sensation, and gave rise to a great deal of speculation. Seldom before had the press reported so often and so exhaustively about a secret prototype as about the "compact" Mercedes-Benz, which soon became world-famous as the "Baby Benz" even before its launch.
