The C-Class is a particularly efficient proposition thanks to the models C 180 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY and C 200 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY.?
Development of the new generation of 4-cylinder engines (based on increasing performance and reducing consumption) has continued on an ongoing basis. Thanks to BlueEFFICIENCY technologies and measures, fuel consumption has been reduced significantly compared with previous models.?
A key factor here is the exhaust-gas turbocharger, which helped to increase the efficiency of the 4-cylinder engines. The optimised 1.8 litre Otto engines with direct petrol injection and variable valve timing burn fuel particularly efficiently.?
Refined power ¡§C in the shape of three 6-cylinder powerplants in the C 250, C 300 and C 350. They embody the symbiosis of refinement and fast acceleration. The maximum torque of 245, 300 and 350 Nm respectively is available across a very wide engine speed range, ensuring impressive power reserves are on tap in any driving situation.
A further feature of the V6 engines is the exemplary fuel consumption. All thanks to the four variable camshafts with infinitely adjustable control as circumstances necessitate. Consequently, just the right amount of fuel is added as the particular driving situation demands. The C 250 and C 300 deliver 204 hp and 231 hp, respectively. The most powerful C-Class, the C 350, comes with an impressive 272 hp. Its acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h of just 6.4 seconds is on a par with a sports car ¡§C when it comes to comfort though, it's in a different league.
All 6-cylinder versions can incidentally be identified by their sporty twin-pipe exhaust system.
