Tried Tested: Mercedes-Benz CGI

In the blink of an eye it has been 3 years the W204 C-Class debuted. the mid-cycle facelift isn’t due Mercedes-Benz has chosen to go the way of turbocharging C-Class along with the of their new W212 E-Class Charged Gasoline Injection In Daimler speak, that’s fuel injection + turbocharging.

all about the test drive of Golf GTI’s power vehicle with rear-wheel plus a boot. Or is it not so? The new C250 CGI all punches out a maximum of 204hp/310Nm. down below for a review by dubbed recently as Mr Stuttgart M-B/Porsche) of the motoring circle 🙂

through the Press Information by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) with the tester you see above, the new CGI BlueEFFICIENCY is touted as the most C-Class ever. With fuel consumption of just 7.2 7.9 litres/100km in combined cycle.

As you all know and have experienced in the real world these are as good as striking it rich in the However and rather unexpectedly so, the figure I got from the C250 was 8.2 while getting boxed-in northbound traffic of the North-South — compulsorily doing of 80 — 90km/h constantly. On the end of the scale, the computer was reading out l/100km on other occasions of ‘high’ behind the wheel.

In my last E200 Kompressor was returning rather similar of fuel consumption figures in my 4 of usage.

So I guess you could it BlueEFFICIENCY after all, 204hp/310Nm versus 163hp/240Nm the same amount of fuel in efficiency at work. That’s the of having a triple alphabets DEH to M271 (engine code) I But I don’t see the need of getting the all over this. There is no (ammonia consuming catalyst here for this petrol 1.8-litre 4-pot. Hmmm.

Further into the Press M-B claims a sprint timing of 7.4 for their latest C250 Which is entirely believable, 310 Nm is at your disposal from a low rpm through to 4,000 rpm. It especially quick more so in mode but not that manically as say the 211 ps/280 Nm Mk6 Golf GTI because of its configuration and probably 5A/T converter ‘refining and filtering’ out a tad more. Typical of Mercedes-Benz, is no lurch even as you slam the aggressively at take-off. One of my co-tester claimed the Toyota Vios is powerful’ due to its persistent lunging-forward of (initial) acceleration. Gosh! be a diehard Toyota fan despite the fiasco which seemed to evaded Malaysia.

High speed stability the new C250 is indeed better the outgoing C230 2.5 V6. In ‘normal’ setting, there is indeed mushiness of the dampers resulting in roll around corners. in ‘Sport’ the suspension isn’t as or jarring as the last 6-potted This is noticeable when I another C230 back-to-back. M-B along with the Bilstein must have done suspension tweaking over coffee and some serious track time.

Having that, the new C250 is still a tad at speed above 180 km/h having adaptive dampers. The while being weightier in mode (the older rack doesn’t respond to setting at all before) is still a tad at speed beyond 200 km/h. a wee bit more choppiness than on poor undulating surfaces of highway stretches the C250’s can come across as jittery its claimed Vmax of 240 km/h.

I guess M-B might still to relegate such lofty to the W212 which is way calmer and sturdier — possibly due a wheelbase and wider tracks.

Yet it all, on B-roads the new C250 CGI is agile and tracks corner a dream with the steering reduced from 14.5 in the versus 13.5 in the C250. I have preferred the ‘Sport’ to be split into two separate of actuation where the throttle mapping is decided at the gear while the chassis/suspension tautness and weight/feel is activated by the regular on the centre console. Much the Mk6 GTI where you can dial in a combo of Normal or Auto’ suspension with either regular auto or ‘S’ auto mode.

Priced at RM287,888 the new C250 CGI is a very promising Mercedes is solid in performance yet retains M-B of comfort, albeit in a smaller The turbocharged C-Class (E-Class in a perspective) will be the range will answer to MBM’s for their current financial since the C250 CGI definitely less to make versus the V6 of yore. The C250 CGI (as well as the CGI) also address to the downsizing-cum-efficiency trend of current complying with EU5 emissions while being fun to point-and-shoot you want more zippiness at a notice. The Munich camp has no emphatic answer to this their aging E90 especially in to their asthmatic 320i and yet detuned 323i. However, the E90 makes a very compelling and this shall be the closest to this C250 CGI — in my at least. Watch out for its review up next.
