(2004 model shown)

C-Class

For 2006, Mercedes-Benz's compact C-Class is reduced to an all-sedan line, dropping the station-wagon versions at least for the time being. The new model comes powered by a choice of three new four-valve, twin-cam V-6 engines. The C230 is powered by a 2.5-liter version that generates 201 horsepower, while the C280 gets a 3.0-liter V-6 that nets 228-horsepower, and the top C350 is fitted with a 3.5-liter powerplant that delivers a substantial 268 horsepower. Active front head restraints that are designed to help reduce whiplash injuries are also newly standard for 2006. As before, four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, Automatic Slip Control, Electronic Stability Program, and front-side and side-curtain airbags all come standard. Options include a navigation system, premium Harmon Kardon audio array, xenon high-intensity headlamps, and an interface that allows an Apple iPod MP3 player to integrate with the car's audio system. The player is operated via steering-wheel controls and the multifunction display in the car's instrument cluster.

Devilishly fast extremely nimble. The interior is very luxurious with very comfortable and supportive seats. In addition there is room in the back for 2 adults.

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 »
