The diesel powerplant in the E 200 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY has a displacement of 2143 cc, an output of 100 kW/136 hp, and consumes 5.2 to 5.5 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres (CO2 emissions: 137 – 145 g/km), enabling the Saloon to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 10.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 210 km/h.
The petrol engine in the new E 200 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY boasts a displacement of 1.8 litres and an output of 135 kW/184 hp. It takes 8.5 seconds to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h and has a top speed of 232 km/h. This model consumes 7.2 litres of premium unleaded petrol (RON 95) per 100 kilometres (CO2 emissions: 169 g/km), not least thanks to the ECO start/stop function, which is fitted as standard in conjunction with the six-speed manual transmission.
These are all-new four-cylinder powerplants with direct injection. One of the main features of the new diesel engine is latest-generation common-rail direct injection. The likewise new four-cylinder petrol engine with direct injection is fitted with a turbocharger as well as adjustable intake and exhaust camshafts.
