Gives a lot, takes almost nothing

4-cylinder diesel engines

The 4-cylinder diesel engines of the A-Class are equipped with common rail direct injection and an exhaust gas turbocharger. They are available in many different output variants, but all have two things in common: the A-Class diesel engines impress with their output and emission figures. The BlueEFFICIENCY package of measures, for instance, fitted in the A 160 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY, ensures this.

You can choose between the models A 160 CDI, A 160 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY, A 180 CDI and A 200 CDI.

  • Lower emissions: All diesel engines feature as standard a particulate filter which reduces particulate emissions by up to 95 percent.
  • Exceptionally frugal: The A-Class diesel-engine models with manual gearshift are exceptionally economical. For instance, the A 200 CDI consumes a mere 5.1 to 5.3 litres per 100 km (combined figure) yet still manages to produce 103 kW and an impressive 300 Newton-metres of torque.
