Mercedes-Benz Readies 45 MPG Diesel, 33 MPG Gas E-Class Sedans for Europe

Mercedes-Benz is readying two new fuel efficient versions of the new 2010 E-Class with two turbocharged inline-fours -- one diesel and one gasoline. The diesel, or E 200 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY, is less thirsty of the two, offering 45 mpg from its 2.2L common-rail mill. It makes 136-hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, and can reach 130 mph.

The gasoline-fed E 200 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY, at 33 mpg, takes a fuel economy hit, but compensates with 184-hp, 199 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 144 mph. Benefiting the direct-injected 1.8L are standard start-stop system and six-speed manual transmission.
