There are two B-Class diesel models to choose from: the B 180 CDI with an output of 80 kW and the B 200 CDI with 103 kW. Torque figures of up to 250 and 300 Nm respectively (280 Nm in conjunction with automatic transmission) ensure power to spare and motoring enjoyment.
Dynamic as they are, the diesel engines can also keep a very low profile – as you’ll notice from their economical consumption and low exhaust emissions in compliance with the Euro 5 emissions category.
A specially developed diesel particulate filter removes up to 95% of soot particles from the exhaust gas. Unlike conventional filter systems, the filter operates without fuel additives. This prevents the formation of ash residue that could clog the filter channel over time. The particulate filter in the CDI models regenerates through adjustment of different engine management functions. This makes it possible to raise the temperature of the exhaust air so that the particles collected in the filter are burnt off. This also extends the service life of the filter.
(B 180 CDI: fuel consumption combined: 5.2–6.0 l/100 km, CO2 emissions combined: 136–158 g/km; B 200 CDI: fuel consumption combined: 5.2–6.3 l/100 km, CO2 emissions combined: 136–165 g/km)
