Mercedes C200 Overview

The Mercedes C200 is classed as a compact executive car and is produced by the German automobile manufacturing company Mercedes-Benz. This car is part of the C-Class and has been in production since 1993 until the present day. There is only the A-Class below the C-Class, which wasn’t introduced until 1997. The C-Class cars are extremely well built and are very spacious inside. They are well equipped and have some excellent safety features. These are expensive cars to buy and are not as refined as you would expect from a car of this calibre. They don’t drive as well as they should either and you would expect better from Mercedes. Does this sound anything like your experience of the C200?

Mercedes C200 History

The Mercedes C-Class was designed as a replacement for the Mercedes 190. The first generation (1993-2000) was introduced in 1993 and had a smoother and rounder design than its predecessor. The C200 was one of the original engines to be introduced in the C-Class. The second generation (2000-06) wasn’t that drastic a change from the predecessor, but 6-speed manual gearboxes were now the standard for all models. The C200 diesel engine replaced the C220 in 2000 and there was a 1.8L version of the C200 which meant that the numbers no longer represented the engine size in all cases. In 2004 this vehicle received a minor facelift. The third generation (2007-present) is slightly bigger than its predecessor and has some design features from the S-Class and CLS-Class. The E-Class coupe version is built on the same platform as the C-Class. This is the current version in production.

The Mercedes C200 had the following engines available: 1.8 and 2.0L petrol and a 2.2L diesel engine. The most economical is the 2.2L CDi diesel engine which offers up to 46mpg which is not bad at all. Which engine do you have and how does it perform economically? The age, fuel type and engine size will be determining factors in the fuel economy of the vehicle.
