The costs of running a Mercedes C200 depend on how many miles it travels every year. The 2015 and 2014 models of the car average 27 and 26 miles per gallon, respectively. This is half as much as the 2016 Toyota Prius Eco, an example of a fuel-efficient car.
Driving the Mercedes C200 for long distances every day can result in an expensive upkeep, compared to a fuel-efficient car such as the Prius.
Mercedes cars are expensive to maintain in general, with the costs per year of some models as high as $11,500. In contrast, a car such as the Toyota Prius C only costs $5,000 per year to keep up.
