Models built between 2008 and 2014 offer a great choice of eight different engine types, which comprise of five petrol and three diesel versions, offering a comprehensive range of power and efficiency options. If you're after fuel economy, you might prefer the 1.6L C200 Bluetec, which you'll get at a significantly cheaper price.
