    @Inspire

    w204 are one of the the best c class mercedes sedans .
    first of all you need to know about classes.,
    c class = compact sized sporty sedan
    e class= mid sized luxary sedan
    s class = full sized extra comfortable and luxary sedan

    as answering your question about difference in c180 and c200 is
    that in c180 c200 c250 c3550 c63....... letter c stands for c class and numeric numbers 180 show litres of engine for example c200 is a c class with 2litre engine,

    note:- {w204 facelift c180 is 1595 cc and c200 1796cc)

    you will be probably looking for 4 cylinder engine equipped car.
    previous models were equipped with superchargers known as kompressor and later on they started using turbos instead of supercharger and renamed the kompressor with cgi{compressed gasoline injection} or cdi{ compressed diesel injection}

    the facelifted versions of w204 have blue efficiency versions. which are very economical and feul efficient. for example BlueEFFICIENCY measures and otherenhancements reduce fuel consumption. The range ofoptimisation measures includes on-demand control ofengine ancillaries or, for example, the electromechanicalsteering of the C 180 BlueEFFICIENCY. This only requiresenergy during the actual process of steering , without anycompromises in terms of steering comfort.

    The 4-cylinder petrol engines come with a choice of threepower outputs:
    ? C 180 BlueEFFICIENCY developing 115 kW (156 hp)and a peak torque of 250 Nm
    ? C 200 BlueEFFICIENCY developing 135 kW (184 hp)and a peak torque of 270 Nm
    ? C 250 BlueEFFICIENCY developing 150 kW (204 hp)and a peak torque of 310 Nm
    as you asked about different features, well they are not catogorised under c180 c200 c250 etc... in each of them there are 3 different versions with different kind of features and trim levels.
    they are catogorised as
    1} standard
    2} elegance
    3} avantgarde
    so you will find c180 standard, c180 elegance and c180 avantgarde... and goes on same in c200 , c250 or others with 6 cylinder engines.
