Mercedes C220 Overview

The Mercedes C220 is classed as a compact executive car and is part of the Mercedes C-Class range. These cars are produced by the German automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz. They have been in production since 1993 and have spawned over 3 generations. The C220 is available in both saloon and estate versions. These cars are very stylish and spacious. They are well equipped and come with the now famous Mercedes safety and security features. They are not very well refined and are way behind the leading rival of this class, the BMW 3-series. The interior design is poor and you would expect better from a Mercedes. Do you relate to what’s said above?

Mercedes C220 History

The first generation (1993-2000) C-Class was a replacement for the Mercedes 190 and the first C-Class was known as the W202 and was more like an evolution of the previous W201 but rounder and smoother looking. This version of the C220 was the only one to have a petrol and diesel engine as options.

The second generation (2000-06) was released in 2000 and now came with a 6 speed manual gearbox as standard. A coupe version and an estate version were introduced in this generation. This car had a makeover in 2004 mainly affecting the interior design.

The third generation (2007-present) had its design based on the S-Class and is the current version on the market.

Fuel Economy

The Mercedes C220 is currently available as a 2.2L diesel and the first generation also had a 2.2L petrol engine available.

The fuel type, engine size and age of vehicle are determining factors when considering fuel economy for any vehicle.
