2019 Mercedes C220d Wagon C-Class Review & Test Drive – Video
Despite having a lower displacement than its predecessor, reduced to just under two litres, and weighing around 16 percent less, the new diesel powerplant in the C 220 d has an output of 143 kW (194 hp), precisely 18 kW more than the previous engine, and delivers an NEDC combined consumption of 4.8-4.4 litres per 100 kilometres in the Saloon.
The C 200, C 220 d and C 400 are available with 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive for improved traction and driving stability, especially in adverse road conditions. The 4MATIC has an active all-wheel torque distribution of 45 % to the front and 55 % to the rear. As ever, the combination of the ESP® driving dynamics control system with the 4ETS electronic traction system makes regular differential locks superfluous. This saves weight and noticeably improves handling safety as well as ride comfort.
