The Mercedes-Benz C-Class W204/S204 sedan, produced from 2007 to 2012, reflects the German auto manufacturer’s commitment to luxury, style and unyielding performance. Offered in the C 200 Cgi Blueefficiency Mt trim, this iteration of the C-Class exudes the brand’s expected elegance, whilst unashamedly asserting its brawn. With direct injection and turbo boost as standard, its inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine draws upon every one of its 184 horsepower to deliver a driving experience that is unmatched in its class.
The real beauty of the C-Class W204/S204, however, is not merely in its potent power, but importantly, in its refined distribution. Equipped with a manual 6-speed transmission, it affords an extra layer of engagement for those who take pleasure in a more ‘hands-on’ driving experience. The joy of shifting gears in synchrony with the car’s escalating engine note embodies a thrill that few modern vehicles provide. Combine that with rear wheel drive, and it hints at a driver-focused vehicle that has been finely tuned to provide a sophisticated yet exciting ride.
Further bolstering this model’s performance credentials is its quick responsiveness – a nod to Mercedes-Benz’s engineering prowess. The car can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 13 seconds, and can effortlessly reach a top speed of 147 mph. To keep all that power in check, an independent, multi wishbone, spring, stabilizer bar back suspension is deployed, ensuring both driver and passengers enjoy an incredibly smooth ride. Meanwhile, the fuel grade of 95 and a tank capacity of 16 gallons ensure decent intervals between fuel station visits. In essence, the C 200 Cgi Blueefficiency Mt offers not only a commanding performance but equally incorporates efficiency to its long list of admirable traits.
