About Mercedes-Benz C220

As a model of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is the replacement for the Mercedes-Benz 190E (W201) and was the smallest model in the marque's lineup, Mercedes-Benz C220 was built by a German multinational automotive corporation Daimler-Benz AG, between 1993 and 1996 as a compact executive car. Originally introduced as a model of the first-generation C-Class, C220 was an entry-level model to replace the 190. Competing against the Genesis G80, Alfa Romeo Giulia and Buick Cascada, C220 was the first batch of models to use the new, modern naming scheme. However, after being manufactured for about three model years, C220 was replaced by the C230 for the 1997 model year.
Mercedes-Benz C220 made its debut in the U.S. in November 1993 for the 1994 model year when the C-Class was in its first generation. It was offered in two body style, 4-door sedan and 4-door station wagon and came in only one trim level. Featured a third stop light, side markers integrated into the front-turn signals, C220 was also equipped with a standard driver airbag, ABS and integrated side-impact protection, the front passenger airbag, and Traction control as well as an infrared remote security system, dual cupholders in the console, a delayed headlamp dousing system, a wood-trimmed interior, four-wheel anti-lock brakes and a power sunroof. During its lifetime, Mercedes-Benz C220 was powered by 2.2 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 148 horsepower and this engine sent power through either 4-speed automatic transmission or optional 4-speed and 5-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels.
