Engines

C43
This 3.0-litre V6 with not one but two turbochargers is colossally punchy low down, but still delivers exhilarating performance right to the redline. Yet, despite its 385bhp power output, it isn’t as thirsty as you might think. It sounds terrific, too.
Our pick
C220d
This 191bhp diesel engine is our favourite in the range. It delivers its best performance low down, right where you need it, yet also returns impressive fuel efficiency. True, it’s quite noisy when it’s pushed hard, but it settles down when you’re just cruising along.
C200
This 181bhp mild hybrid petrol engine uses electric boost for extra power and efficiency, but it’s surprisingly noisy, doesn’t feel as fast as its power and performance figures suggest and isn’t as efficient as equivalent units in competitors.
