Both petrol models, the B180 and B200, use the same 1,6-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine. In the B180 it produces 90 kW/200 N.m, and in the B200 115 kW/250 N.m, but even so, Mercedes-Benz claims identical fuel consumption figures for both, at 5,9 L/100 km.
Which of the current Volkswagen R models would get your vote?
