Mercedes-Benz C200 (A)
Luxury sedan under R475k
With the successful concept of its predecessor, Mercedes-Benz engineers have gone a step further by making the new C-Class even more dynamic, lively and attractive. This was all undertaken without compromising fundamental values such as safety, comfort, quality, aesthetic appeal, individuality and value retention.
Most modern C-Class models feature force fed petrol and diesel powerplants these days. Thus, our C200 was fitted with a 2-litre petrol turbo engine that delivered a 135 Kilowatts of maximum power and 300Nm of torque. One of the most interesting features of the engine was the fact that it delivered its maximum torque at only 1 200r/min.
That means right from idling speeds all of the engines torque is already available. This translates into an effortless driving experience, as there is always more than enough pulling power available throughout the rev range, aided by the well-spaced ratios of the 7-Gtronic automatic gearbox. The Mercedes-Benz C200 sprints from 0 to 100kmh in a mere 7.5-seconds.
