Mercedes-Benz remembers the C-Class engine innovations from the past

Everyone knows the Mercedes C-Class as being the most affordable vehicle among the German carmakers, at least up until the turn of the century. The specialists have developed and introduced a lot of power train technologies, including on the 190 as well. The model was designed with diesel engines with four or five cylinders that needed to be encapsulated to reduce noise. The model introduced for the first time in 1986, powered by a D 2.5 Turbo was capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.5 seconds. The W201 series can also be remembered thanks to its gasoline engine, the four-valve version of the M 102. This was in fact that first series-produced Mercedes-Benz passenger car with a petrol engine with four valves per cylinder. The Germans from Mercedes have also had a an experiment involving an electric version that came with two permanent excited electric motors that received power from sodium/nickel chloride batteries each having an output of 16 kW. Back in 1995, the C-Class W202 returned to supercharged engines with belt-driven supercharger in C 230 Kompressor. 1997 marked the introduction of the V8 engine in the C-Class with the C 43 AMG. In 2008, Mercedes-Benz has introduced the C-Class W 204 powered by the 651 diesel engine. The unit had a 2.1-liter displacement in its most powerful variant. The Germans managed to develop a lot of great technologies so far, and we have a feeling they are not going to stop.
