This luxury C200 Elegance was a desirable and very well equipped model within the W202 range and offers the perfect blend of modern classic usability and traditional Mercedes-Benz design cues. Finished in factory optional Brilliant Silver Metallic (code 744) the beautifully polished uniform paint finish is fantastic and reflects its low mileage credentials.

The superbly engineered and beautifully finished interior of the W202 series firmly upholds the makers renown for unparalleled build quality. Designed with ergonomics taking precedence, the contoured seats trimmed in original Blue Fabric (code 482) are essentially flawless with no undue wear to the upholstery and the seat bases and bolsters remain absolutely firm and have retained all shape. The door cards, headlining, dashboard and switchgear are perfect, and all functions and controls operate seamlessly. The fully operational Blaupunkt Boston RCR128 stereo remains fitted and even the untouched Mercedes first aid kit is housed in the rear shelf compartment! An immensely comfortable and indulgent modern classic, built to the expected Mercedes-Benz standard.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The renowned four cylinder 16v Mercedes-Benz engine is uncompromising in its refinement and durability when maintenance is sustained. Full main dealer and specialist Mercedes servicing has firmly upheld this standard with whisper quiet and smooth performance a delight. Displacing 1998cc, a top speed of 127mph and 0-62.5mph time of 11.1 seconds is achieved. The very clean engine bay remains exactly as intended and displays factory stickers and plates. The optional five speed automatic transmission with Tempomat offers an effortless relaxed driving manner.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory fitted elegant alloy wheel rims look superb and are well presented with only light markings and scratches to the outer rims. The 195/65 R15 tyres have good tread remaining and the pristine boot area houses the spare wheel alongside the original toolkit roll, jack and warning triangle. Dual-circuit power brakes with discs all round and anti-lock (ABS) assistance bring the car up to a straight and steady halt.
Supplied new on the 11th November 1999 by Mercedes-Benz main agents Rycroft of Middlesbrough , this wonderful example has covered just 38,996 miles from new. Despite the low mileage, important servicing has been upheld with supplying main dealer history up to 2011 and Mercedes-Benz specialists thereafter. The original service book displays nine stamps from the supplying main dealer and a further entry from a specialist with less than 3,000 miles covered since. The dealer supplied Mercedes wallet also contains all handbooks, operating guides and point of sale literature. Furthermore, virtually every MOT from new is present in the history file along with invoices.
