(2004 model shown)


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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
