Mercedes-Benz C250 Sport Reviewed by AutoBlog

The W204 generation of the C-Class is on the way out of the Mercedes-Benz picture, since the upcoming W205 model has shed almost all of its camouflage, which is a good enough reason to think it will be launched in the following months.

Fans of the current model still have enough time to fetch one though, since the car;s facelift hasn't happened that long ago, with most of its refreshed details making it far from obsolete.

Apparently, AutoBlog though the same and took a 2013 C250 Sport model for a week-long test drive. Unlike its C230 predecessor, who had a gas-guzzling and not necessarily sporty V6, the US-spec base model C-Class has to do with a 1.8-liter turbocharged four cylinder with direct injection.

Two cylinders less doesn't mean it's slower, though, as the C250 Sport, paired with the 7 G-Tronic can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standing start in just 7.2 seconds.

Part of its somewhat sporty credentials are represented by the total output of the engine, with a slightly detuned compared to Europe 201 bhp and a torque figure of 350 Nm (258.1 lb ft) that's available from 2,000 to 4,300 rpm. You can check out the entire review here.
