Hair, 10. May 2007 – In the compact class, new concepts and special types are increasingly sought after. Among other things, the Mercedes B-Class started in 2005 pays. The model mentioned also Sports Tourer prevailed as a van-like premium-compact in sporty-elegant sheet metal dress from the cutting types of the golf class. One year later, the Daimler-Chrysler brand Dodge sent the Caliber a favorable C-Segment representative in Cool Muscle Car Optics on the Strain. And now VW with the CrossGolf has a striking compact with coarse interior in the nicer offroad dress. We have given the three both exciting and quite different character actors with two-liter diesel engines and compared.
As you liked the two-year-old B-class, most of them have already used themselves. Also a Mercedes may now look like a compact look. The already one year old Caliber is still an exotic eye-catcher.

Despite the Uber 1.4 tonnes of weight, the B 200 CDI creates the 100 km / h-sprint in 9.6 seconds and becomes 200 km / h quickly. The average consumption gives Mercedes to 100 kilometers with 5.6 liters. In our test, 7.5 liters were carried out by the injectors. A good value. The exact and lightweight six-speed manual transmission is convincing.
