Mercedes-Benz has revealed three new fuel efficient engines for its C-Class sedan and Estate, although as they are BlueEFFICIENCY engines its not clear when we will see them in Australia.
Mercedes-Benz says the engines raise performance and driving enjoyment to a new level, while demonstrating exemplary economy and environmental compatibility.
The new engines impress with a low fuel consumption, and therefore exemplary environmental compatibility, while delivering a high output for outstanding driving pleasure.
The new C220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY sedan, the most efficient C-Class ever, generates 125kW and 400Nm from a displacement of 2143 cubic centimetres.
This accelerates the saloon from standstill to 100km/h in 8.4 seconds, yet the combined fuel consumption is only 4.8 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres, coupled with a CO2 emission of 127g/km – the best figure in this category.
The C250 CDI, with the same displacement, produces 150kW and 500Nm with a fuel consumption of 5.1L/100km, coupled with a CO2 figure of 134g/km and a 0-100km/h figure of 7.0secs.
The newly developed four-cylinder in the C 250 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY also uses direct injection.
It achieves 150kW and offers 310Nm, while needing 7.4 seconds for the sprint from zero to 100km/h with the new petrol engine.
The combined consumption amounts to 7.2L/100km, and CO2 emissions are 168g/km.
The new model variants of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class are available as both sedan and estate models in overseas markets.
