Additional Info


We have become spoilt. 25 years ago, Mercedes a car with more torque the ‘Hammer’ E-Class AMG and in-gear to flatten a supercar, but which 55.4mpg and 134g/km of CO2, have hailed the Germans for in-car nuclear fission or the of kryptonite.

But now? Now, we at those numbers and think, very nice, but any chance you make it sound a bit less.

So let’s ignore the rattle and concentrate on all the good stuff in the BlueEfficiency, the latest diesel Merc’s eco-range and perhaps the convincing blend of fastness and we’ve yet seen.

Under the is the same 2.2-litre, four-pot in the E250 CDI. Even in the big it did a more than adequate job thank sequential turbocharging and ft of torque (that’s more an F430) — but it turns the C an absolute flier, a proper saloon.

It’ll hit 62mph in seven flat, but even that stat doesn’t do justice to the acceleration. Drop into at, say, 40mph and there’s a pin-yer-ears-back thump of torque as the zips up to UK-illegal speeds at a unseemly pace.

Yes, there are plenty of quick diesels out there Mercedes’s own C320 CDI is a rapid for one — but it’s the combination of and economy that puts the right to the head of the eco-pack. the BMW 325d can’t get close, a few tenths longer to hit 62mph emitting over 150g/km of CO2 and 49mpg.

The C250 isn’t Our test car was fitted with alloys and the optional, lower suspension, which combined to a disarmingly gritty ride out of character with the C’s nature. Smaller wheels and the suspension set-up should that, but worse is the manual which feels brittle and a flaw exacerbated by the high-biting The auto gearbox will the C250 better, but sadly adds around 20g/km of CO2 and a vital

tax band.

Then there’s the noise, even by diesel standards, is as as Norfolk: not for the Mercedes C250 the thrum of BMW’s 6cyl or the hushedness of the French four-pots. But smaller wheels, splash few quid you’ve saved on a box set of Great Noisy Supercar Ever! Volume 14 on CD, and here’s that you can indeed have environmentally friendly cake and eat it. noisily.
