Mercedes-Benz's compact C-Class line receives the same styling revisions across the line for 2005 as were introduced in last year's Sport sedan version. The latter is graced with even more-aggressive appearance upgrades this year while its coupe counterpart receives a restyled front grille. A supercharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission continues as the standard powertrain in the C230 Kompressor Sport sedan and coupe. C320 models come powered by a 215-horsepower, 3.2-liter V-6, while the top C55 AMG includes a 362-horsepower V-8. Redesigned interiors feature a new dashboard, instrument cluster, steering wheel and console, as well as upgraded seats with added support. Luxury models sport new wood interior trim. Four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, Automatic Slip Control, Electronic Stability Program, and front-side and side-curtain airbags are now all standard.

Value-priced C-Class strikes a good balance.

2005 Mercedes-Benz C Class 4-Door Sedan 5.5L AMG

The best family sports sedan I've ever owned. To most it looks low key, but performs like Porsche 911.

Overall a very fast, comfortable and reliable car if you keep up with the rather pricey maintenance on time.

Mine is the last year for the 3 door (hatchback). Interior shows almost zero wear other than door speakers that can be broken when seat belt doesn't fully retract. Amazing adaptable folding and tumbling seats... + More »

While the various controls may be a little quirky and initially inscrutable ( I know, read the manual) this is a pretty good balance between price and quality. Given that most dealers use these cars as their... + More »
