  • Description
    At its sales and service outlets and dealerships, Mercedes-Benz presents the new 202-series C-Class and stylistically modified 124-series passenger car models, which have been given the designation "E-Class". A noteworthy technical innovation is the world's first passenger car diesel engines with four-valve-per-cylinder technology: the 2.2-litre four-cylinder OM 604 (C-Class only), the 2.5-litre five-cylinder OM 605 and the 3-litre six-cylinder OM 606 (E-Class only). The emission control system with oxidising catalytic converter and exhaust gas recirculation offered since 1990 becomes a part of the standard equipment of all Mercedes-Benz diesel-powered cars.
