Mercedes-Benz is introducing the C 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY featuring second- generation direct fuel injection as the fourth BlueEFFICIENCY model in the C-Class. Compared to the current C 350, the new saloon reduces its fuel consumption by more than 10%. At the same time, the V6 engine delivers 15% more power and already meets future EU5 emission limits.
The engine in the new BlueEFFICIENCY model, which is available to order immediately, is a gasoline engine with spray-guided direct injection. It produces 215 kW (292 hp) and develops maximum torque of 365 Nm. This is 15 kW (20 hp) and 15 Nm more than the current V6 engine with port injection.
With its piezo injection fuel system and an optimized gearshift program, the C 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY consumes 8.3 litres of premium grade fuel per 100 kilometers (28.3 mpg US) in the European driving cycle, with CO2 emissions of 193 g/km. This figure is more than 1.4 liters less than the consumption attained by the current C 350.
The new C 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY accelerates from 0-100 kph in 6.2 seconds, while its top speed is limited electronically to 250 kph (155 mph).
