Technical Specifications

Under the hood of this German 4-door Compact saloon lies the 4-Cylinder 2.1 Diesel Engine. This turbo-boosted engine generates a good 143 bhp which doesn't make the Mercedes-Benz C-Class feel underpowered. Because of its 6-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive-system this reasonably heavy 4-door Compact saloon can deliver this power effectively to its tyres, and is able to achieve a seriously fast top-speed of 137 mph.
