Although the 2009 Mercedes-Benz C 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY Prime Edition limited edition compact sedan sports an extensive list of interesting features, the German brand’s PR department currently focuses on the new diesel engine that motivates the vehicle.

On a market where gas was always dirt-cheap (well, at least compared to Europe where fuel is traditionally a subject of heavy taxes and costs a lot more,) the heavy fuel’s only advantage -higher efficiency- never managed to become a key factor when choosing a next car. Well, it is clear that Mercedes-Benz wants that to change.
