According to an interview that the CEO of Mercedes USA, Ernst Lieb, gave to Automotive News, the recently unveiled 2008 Mercedes C-Class that’ll be available in the US in September will have distinct styling from its European spouse. Although Lieb didn’t give any specific details he noted that style-wise, the US version of the new C-Class will be more “aggressive” than the Euro edition. As with the BMW 3-Series, the 2008 C-Class won’t get any 4cylinder variants in the US market where it’ll be solely available with V6, and later on, V8 engines.
