Pros: New engine and sport suspension and 17in wheels
Cons: exaust note needs more growl, needs ac outlets
Advice: Buy the C230 Sport Kompressor and they will deal.We bought the C230 Sport Sedan with the new 1.8 all aluminum, intercooled, super charged (Kompressor) engine. The Fun To Drive Factor is a 10. With the distictive front and rear, the only cars out there that look similiar are other Benz's. We love the 17in wheels with low profile, high performance tires, this combined with the sport tuned suspension make for a fun dive.
Pros: small engine plenty of go.
Cons: too many buttons on steering wheel
Advice: don't buy a smaller car until you look at this car.out performed the bmw 325. better ride, better looks, better interior, cost less, and most importantly the dealers were better. bmw would not even quote a price until you were sitting in front of a finance manager after leaving your first born child.
Pros: Comfortable ride, the Mercedes badge
Cons: Not an exciting ride, comes with nothing, too expensive
Advice: If you want a sports car, keep looking. Don't buy this thing.This is not a sports car. It is a sporty luxury car. I was hoping for an exhilarating drive, but this car is very sedate. I wasn't impressed with the console either-it looked cheap to me compared to other cars that cost a lot less. And this car comes with nothing! No standard leather, CD player, or moonroof. This car is way overpriced for what you're getting, unless you just want to tell people you have a Mercedes.
Pros: The sport tunned suspension
Cons: Lack of a rear window wiper
Advice: get the manual transmissionI can sum it up in the slow purr of the car while idle, the feel on the gear nob as you get going and the inertia holding you as you shift up the gears. Excellent!
Pros: Dashboard computer
Cons: The doors (swing too wide
Advice: The C2 package is usually sufficientHaving driven with 168 hp for a while, 215 hp is a marked difference especially on highway. It is slightly bigger than a BMW 3 series and smaller than a 5 series and perfect for a small family. The trunk size is impressive for small sedan. The AWD makes for great performance in winter in New York. There is no need for snowtires. The color scheme is great and the leather and stero qualities are fitting for a luxury sedan. C240 is underpowered and E320 is only sligtly bigger but with a substantial price increase. All in all, dollar for dollar, it is a great purchase.
Pros: Awsome look, great drive
Cons: back seat room
Advice: Get the premium package but forget the wheels.First of all its looks great. And its size is decieving. It drives like a sports car and handles beautifuly. the super charged engine is more than powerful enough considering its size and gas milage is well over 30 on the freeway. Back seat room is acceptable. Its not great but fine for any drive that isn't cross country. I'm 6'2' and fit just fine.
Pros: climate controlled storage.
Cons: Build Quality
Advice: Don't let your heart rule, stick with an Acura TLCar Looks Great, many annoying problems and trips to dealer. Groaning suspension, squeaky spongy seats. Pricey for a small car.
