Downsizing is all the rage today, so Mercedes-Benz gives the C 200 d a new diesel engine. The four-cylinder has a smaller capacity, but more power.

Anyone who ordered a C 200 d, got a car with a 150 hp and 360 Nm 2.1-liter four-cylinder under the hood. According to the manufacturer, a consumption of 4.4 l / 100 km was feasible. From now on the C 200 d has a completely different power source.

The 2.1-liter is being replaced by a 1.6-liter diesel. The Renault-Nissan sourced 1597 cc four cylinder develops 160 hp and 360 Nm. The new engine can be connected to a manual six-speed gearbox and to a 9G-Tronic automatic transmission.

For the C-Class sedan with manual transmission, Mercedes-Benz announces a mixed consumption of 4.1 l / 100 km. With automatic transmission that value is 4.2 l / 100 km. For the T-Modell estate, the average consumption is 4.4 l / 100 km (manual) and 4.5 l / 100 km (automatic). The 0-100 sprint is estimated for the manual sedan at 8.5 seconds (Estate 8,7). The version with an automatic gearbox gets the same job done in 7.9 seconds (T-Modell 8.2).

For the C 200 d with manual transmission, Mercedes-Benz is asking for € 37.294 (Germany). The version with 9G-Tronic transmission costs € 39.793. For the C 200 d T-Modell with manual gearbox, the starting price is € 38.960 and for the version with automatic transmission, Mercedes asks € 41.459.
