Default Mercedes Benz C 200 CGI driving footage

A friend of mine invited me to experience the new C 200 CGI.
Overall it was an enjoyable experience for me. Video is just brief due to certain limitations.

Nice one there Sid. So is this engine better than the Kompressor one?

Technically, it does sound great with spray hair direct petrol injection technolgy that improves the FE and other performance characteristics of the car.

Down here, it's 29.5L ex-showroom. Whats the price up there?

If i can correctly recall this place is Okhla Industrial area, you were doing 100+ kph in interiors of an industrial area.

Some years back i saw a C class rammed head on in the roundabout we can see in the video, i was told it was a test drive car from the Merc dealership nearby.

Sid, thanks for sharing. It would be useful if you could share some data from your driving experience.

I drove only briefly, the footage was being shot by me while my friend was driving. We made sure that all aspects of safety are adhered to (he is actually quite a senior person, in his late 40s.)
The engine literaly blew me away, quite a generous torque spread and much improved acceleration timings. Only wished that it had a 7 speed box.
yesterday my camera's 1GB memory stick was already consumed by micra shots so not much was left in terms of a proper video footage.
Any day it is miles ahead of he C200 Kompressor and much refined too.

Yes, that roundabout is literally dangerous, hence i took that ride with a very experienced person in terms of driving skills.
