THE Kompressor is kaput. In a drive to efficient engines, Mercedes-Benz has the volume-selling supercharged Kompressor from its refreshed C-Class and wagon lineup.

It remains in the SLK and CLC coupe, but as the next-generation models the German carmaker is expected to to turbocharged engines as part of its strategy. The entry supercharged engine has been replaced by a new direct injection four in the C200 and gains the CGI tag, means Charged Gasoline

The replacement direct-injection 1.8-litre four develops the same but more torque, better and fewer emissions. The newcomer 135kW/270Nm compared to the Kompressor’s

Economy has improved from to 7.3l/100km and emissions have down from 189g/km to Apart from a new Euro 5 C200 engine, prices the face-lifted C-Class range the same. The entry C200 at $57,900.

Equipment levels been improved, adding $3000 and almost $8000 in value into the cars. Australia has passed on the 5 per cent 1 reduction in import tariffs in the of more equipment.

A driver’s knee airbag brings the count to nine, while the grille, new 17-inch alloys, rear seats, new alloys and cupholders have been to the C200. A new four-cylinder model, the C250 CGI, joins the bringing to 10 the number of sedan and models available.

Both the C200 and C250 their turbocharged engines but the gets a higher start of at 150kW/310Nm. The C250 adds audio system and Comand 18-inch alloys and maple trim. Further up the ladder are the V6 and Buyers have a choice of two V6s a C300 and the turbodiesel C350

The C300 is unchanged, providing from a 3.0-litre V6. Like the cylinder models it gets gear. The torque-rich C350 CDI the same upgrades and its 165kW/510Nm V6 carries over unchanged. The continues to be the 336kW/600Nm C63 AMG.

the C-Class remains Mercedes-Benz most important model. year it sold 6163 sedans and 394 wagons, comprising 41 per of total Mercedes sales. Australia passenger cars manager, Zac Loo, says was a clear agenda to add more into the range to improve leadership.

Since launch we have had leadership in the segment and we are not going to that up, he says.

IF the budget can go for the C250 CGI. That’s not to say the C200 is a dog. Far from it. The 1.8-litre turbo engine is and frugal but for a little extra without too much hip-pocket the C250 is a better bet.

Its response makes you think that this performance is out of a 1.8-litre four cylinder. The is peaky, smooth revving and matched to the five-speed gearbox.

Unlike the Kompressor engine, the delivery is seemless and the turbo’s geometry turbocharger virtually any turbo lag. From the C250 has more urge the C200 and the surge of power across the rev range will

Like all Mercedes four-cylinders, it not have the sweet aural of a BMW four but it certainly matches the for performance. It’s been a since we’ve driven the and it still impresses with its composed ride, handling and

It is crisp through the corners and all Mercedes-Benz cars you really do to take it out on long driver, a windy open road, to the level of engineering that has into a model like the Throw the C-Class into a corrugated corner and you’ll see we mean.

In this situation, the steering unruffled and the suspension absorbs the corrugations without transmitting into the cabin. It is more a match for the BMW 3 Series.

Apart the engines, the visual tweaks to the are welcome and the cabin remains — if a little bland of the over-emphasis of black or grey the interior. Mercedes has begrudgingly more gear but metallic is still optional, real is extra on the C200 and C220 CDI and delivery can be very steep.

To be it’s not the only Euro to gouge customers with delivery fees. There is a price to pay for driving one of the best in the business.
