[YesAuto Shopping Guide] Each car brand has its own family naming method. The more common one is “model name-power combination-configuration level”, such as the Focus 1.8AT fashion model. Focus is the name of the model, 1.8AT is the power combination, and the fashion model represents its level of configuration. Another naming method is more common in luxury brands, such as the Infiniti G25 sports version or FX35 transcendence version. G and FX represent the car series, while 25 and 35 represent displacements of 2.5L and 3.5L, while the sports version and the transcendence Represents the level of configuration. There is no good or bad distinction between these two naming methods, but some manufacturers' models do not match the actual displacement, and it is easy to make sense if they do not understand them carefully.

Before introducing these models, I will test everyone with three multiple-choice questions.

1. The displacement of the Mercedes-Benz B200 engine is 2.0 liters. What is the displacement of the C200K?

A. 1.6 liters B. 1.8 liters C. 2.0 liters

2. The engine displacement of the domestic BMW 320i is 2.0 liters, and the displacement of the 330i is 3.0 liters. What is the displacement of the 318i?

A. 1.6 liters B. 1.8 liters C. 2.0 liters

3. The engine displacement of Lexus RX350 is 3.5 liters. What is the displacement of RX450?

A. 3.5 liters B. 4.0 liters C. 4.5 liters


Since the same engine is often used in multiple models, I will focus on the engine as the main line in the next article, and introduce these models and models that do not match the displacement.


Benz:

Everyone is familiar with the Mercedes-Benz brand. The position of this century-old luxury brand in the history of automobile development is undoubted. However, the names of many of its models do not correspond to the actual displacement. Don't be literal when you buy. , Pay attention to the displacement.

1.6L supercharged engine

Assembled model: C180K

C180K is a very popular model recently. With an official guide price of 300,000 yuan and some discounts on the market, its actual price has entered the price range of 200,000 to 300,000 yuan. Such a price is undoubtedly very competitive among luxury brand mid-size cars.

However, the actual displacement of C180K is not 1.8L. It is equipped with a 1.6-liter engine. With the help of supercharging, this engine can output a maximum power of 115 kilowatts (156 horsepower), which is equivalent to a 2.0-liter engine. The naturally aspirated engine has a maximum torque of 230 Nm, reaching the level of a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated engine.
