PREVIEW: Mercedes-Benz 2011 Agenda

In 2011, Mercedes-Benz will celebrate the birth of the first automobile, the Benz Patent Motor Car. Throughout the entire year, the German luxury car manufacturer will be organising specially dedicated events: the first of the series - the ceremony held at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart on January, 29th, the exact day when Carl Benz was awarded the Patent No. 37435 for his motorised three-wheeler back in 1886. Obviously, we eagerly await for a long list of Three-Pointed Star notable premieres - the new SLK-Klasse (R 172 generation), the new C-Klasse Coupe (codename:C 204), the new M-Klasse (W 166 generation), the new SLS AMG Cabriolet, the new C 63 AMG models for 2011 (Limousine, T-Modell and Coupe + Black Series) and the new B-Klasse.

The New Mercedes-Benz SLK-Klasse (R 172 generation)
The smaller brother of the SL will embrace, as previously anticipated, a very SLS-esque design, both inside and outside. The dashboard will be a reinterpretation of the one installed on the Mercedes-Benz supercar;the most accentuated influence will be seen on the exterior of the new SLK, where the headlights and the impressive grille tell the SLS AMG story at a lower scale. An extensive array of new technologies will make their onto the new roadster: the MAGIC SKY CONTROL, the efficient MoVe engines, the COMAND Online infotainment system, PRE-SAFE & Co. are top of the line. The reveal is set for January 29th, 2011, while the public premiere takes place in March, at Geneva.


The new Mercedes-Benz C-Klasse Coupe (C 204 generation)
A world's first for the C-Klasse lineup, the 2-door version will bring along with it the axing of the floppy CLC. The improved looks and technology of the C-Klasse Facelift will be part of the Coupe variant as well. Official unveiling: Geneva Motor Show.


The new Mercedes-Benz M-Klasse (W 166 generation)
The ML paved the way to SUVs when it was launched in 1997, and now, with the third generation on the pipe, the story goes on. The new 4x4 model from Stuttgart will feature a powerful design, a more practical interior and advanced dynamics and off-road systems and solutions. The M-Klasse is programmed to bow in mid next year.


The new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Cabriolet
Two years after the Gullwing, Mercedes-Benz will launch the Cabriolet version of the SLS AMG in September, at the prestigious IAA in Frankfurt. Soft top to keep weight low, the same, juicy, 571 hp V8 powerplant, the unique, iconic, elegant design lines and the undetered sports car feeling - this is the package of the new SLS Cabrio.


The new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG models for 2011
In the course of the next year, Mercedes-AMG will release "doped" versions for the updated C-Klasse range. The Limousine, T-Modell and Coupe will receive the tuning procedure. A Black Series model might also be in the works. While the standard AMGs will still use the current aspirated V8 unit, the uber-sport Black Series is tipped to receive the new biturbo V8 engine and several, important tweaks to enhance dynamics.


The new Mercedes-Benz B-Klasse
The second generation of the compact sports tourer will be the spark for a comprehensive lineup of new small/compact Mercedes-Benz models. The forthcoming B-Klasse will be bigger, smoother, roomier, more efficient and more modular. The innovative Mercedes Frontwheel Architecture will be premiered on the new MPV, expected to hit the stage of the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011.
