Benz’s comes of age

Through good engineering, Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class has proven itself as a competent performance car.

Even in the the C-Class — then as the 190E — sported an six-cylinder engine to lift to BMW-bashing levels.

It has even the AMG touch, emerging with a V8 or supercharged V6. But the C-Class has always an entry-level model for would-be owners, so it’s the more models that have had the showroom influence.

Since 2002, when the was facelifted to take over the original version, the four-cylinder have been of most notably the C180 and C200

Available in both sedan and formats, the 180 and 200 C-Classes have sensible transport at a reasonable, if not prices.

What’s interesting the cars from a technical of view is Benz’s decision to these cars with engines. Rather than to create a high-performance vehicle, the in the C-Class was to create flexible that retained the fuel of other 1.8-litre four-cylinder

It’s also noteworthy although the two big-selling versions badged as 180 and 200, they both fitted with engines. The difference was in the power both engines were with the same levels of but different boost levels each supercharger installation in 105 kW of power and 220 Nm of torque for the 180 and 120 kW and 240 Nm for the 200. not much to choose between on the road; the 200 is a fraction quicker.

Things kicked off the C180 Kompressor sedan in trim, then moved up to the Avantgarde, which added a for the climate-control and 16-inch alloy The Elegance was the next step up.

In the Kompressor, the hierarchy was much the with Classic, Avantgarde and trim levels in the four-door and then the same again in the wagon bodyshell.

The station wagon is worth a because it makes the most of the modest footprint and even to look pretty swish.

Creature comforts weren’t All models got at least cruise a powered driver’s seat, computer, climate-control air-conditioning and electrics.

Trim materials hard wearing but these were built when was struggling with quality. silly little faults let down against the best of the Watch out for ill-fitting interior and trim panels that discoloured or have started to and squeak. Make sure the gear works and take a look at the paint, because metallic colours are hard to after a crash.

Mechanically there shouldn’t be too to worry about, if the car has a proper record. And don’t be put off if the servicing has done by a workshop other a Mercedes dealership; many sought cheaper alternatives.
