MERCEDES C 220 d 4Matic All Terrain Test – Motorlegend

Cédric Morançais on 10/25/2022 Using recipes already used in the E-Class and Audi and Volvo, the Mercedes C-Class All-Terrain seeks to entice those who hesitate between the C-Class station wagon and the GLC. SUV. It is more expensive than the latter and combines more disadvantages than characteristics. Or when the best is the enemy of the good. Excess hybrid Launched by Volvo in 1997, the concept of the Adventurer Break has been adopted over the years by various manufacturers such as Audi, Subaru and Mercedes. After testing this formula in the E-Class, the star manufacturer applied it to a lower scale a few months ago. Thus, the C-Class All-Terrain is a resting place with an increase in ground clearance by 4 cm, the body is decked with numerous protections made of raw plastic, and the shield is finished with pseudo-skis in aluminum color. The refurbishment costs 1,650 euros, which seems quite reasonable given the brand’s pricing policy. The rooms have few modifications compared to the standard station wagon. We find living space fairly measured given the size of the car and the trunk that can only hold 490 liters of luggage. Except when the bench seats are folded, the maximum capacity increases to 1,510 liters. At the technical level, 4Matic all-wheel drive is imposed and only two engines are available: 200 gasoline at 204 hp and the 220d under test developing 200 hp. In either case, the hybridizer can count 20 additional nagging in seconds. ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes -Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz ©Mercedes-Benz See more photos Of all the engines Mercedes has made, this 2.0 diesel is certainly the least successful. It’s loud and lively, but candid and flexible during acceleration. On the other hand, when decelerating, the gearbox plays less game, and downshifts are usually accompanied by some jerk. The pressure on the pedals to complete the picture is not clear. It doesn’t seem to do anything other than turn on the brake lights with a slight press, and the C-Class All-Terrain starts thumping when you press the latter. Let’s end our list of complaints by citing the lack of flexibility in damping at low speeds. It’s probably not surprising that our test model has optional 18-inch rims. Fortunately, the Mercedes C-Class All-Terrain also has a wide quality list. On fast track, the suspension is near-perfect, and seat maintenance is perfect no matter which route you choose. As we have already underlined, times have become very clear, especially thanks to the support of hybrid devices. Also, with a hybrid that can measure the performance of this crossover, our tests averaged 6l/100km. Also, this C-Class exhibits particularly dynamic handling. The front axle is still in millimeters and the roll remains very measured. You’ll also have glowing eyes when reading the list of available equipment, such as a matrix projector, a connected navigation system with satellite view display, front seats and electrically adjustable steering columns. … But if you choose the term “available” rather than “supplied as standard,” most of these improvements are because you often have to pay for salty supplements. So, if the base price set at €62,650 is already high, you can see that the test model includes options for almost €14,000. To remember, the Mercedes C-Class All-Terrain struggles to justify its existence. Between the C-Class brakes and the real SUV, the GLC, it nevertheless offers a special exclusivity that is rare on our roads. It’s a great road car, but it’s fishing with an engine reminiscent of a diesel engine. Comfort in the fast lane, dynamic behavior, restraint, extra cost compared to the C-Class Break Too present and unpleasant engine sound, gearbox behavior during downshifts, hard-to-administer braking figures 2021: €62,650 Power: 200 hp 0 ~ 100 km/h: 7.8 seconds Combined fuel consumption: 5.2 l/100 km CO2 emissions: 129 g/km Our opinion Heart score: 13/20 Driving pleasure: 16/20 Active and passive safety: 13/20 Cabin comfort and life : 14/20 Budget: 12/20 Latest MERCEDES Tests MERCEDES C-Class 200 AMG Line 204 hp MERCEDES AMG C43 390 hp MERCEDES AMG C 63 Cabriolet All MERCEDES Tests Owner Comments Comments
