Contradictory info on the web seems to suggest improvements to the 2010 model with facelift in 2011. Since the 204 was launched on 2007 you would expect the facelift 4 years after launch in 2011

I would be more interested in the interior modifications than the engine line up or the LED lights that appears on the front as I think that the interior is the weak area of the current 204.

Yes W204 is fantastic on the outside. Especially in Obsidian Black and in Sport guise. The interior with those plastics is rubbish. It would look ok on a Kia but not a 30K+ Merc.
The facelift the OP is talking about is a mild one. The proper facelift arrives in 2011 where it recieves SL style headlights.

I managed to find photos of the disguised facelift prototype
And a bit of blurb about it.

Mercedes-Benz is readying the C-Class for an update. These spy pictures reveal a new look for the successful C-Class which has been on the market since 2007. Changes include new headlights, a new front bumper and a new bonnet. The rear is expected to feature a new set of lights and some modifications to the bumper.

Some engine upgrades will be on offer while the interior should receive minor changes too. Current models include the C 220 CDI with 125kW (170hp) and 400Nm, and the fire-breathing C 63 AMG worth 336kW (457hp). Installed technologies include the AGILITY Control Pack, the COMAND system with Linguatronic voice control and the NECK PRO safety system.

Mercedes-Benz did away with the CLK, replacing it with the E-Class Coupe. The same will happen when the CL changes to the S-Class Coupe. It follows that the C-Class could also get its own Coupe model to sit above the CLC.

I agree the Sports looks great.
Quality is not up toAudi standards.
I've driven the 180 base auto for couple of days & day in the sports 180. Both havdle about 50% betterthav my W203, 07 plate Avtg mdel that has about 15k on the clock & Covti sports contact 2 tyres. I hope they keep the sports as it is.

Are some of these comments coming from current, 204 owners ?? ............. I don't recognise much of whats been said above .............. However ......... I'm only an owner !!!

I coud'nt imagine, where an Audi could be better .............. the 204 is a great, well screwed together car ......if it was'nt.......... mine would be gone by now ........... nearly 7 months and 18,000 miles ........and it's just waking up ............ lovely !

Daytime running lights aint a facelift ............... it's EU law for all cars manufactured after a certain date (sometime in 2011) ........ so car makers are bringing them in as and when they can.
