ReviewNimble, lightfooted and mroe fun that its predecessor, the 190E2.6, the C280 is an amazing blend of practicality and constrained performance. Not quite up to the standards of its AMG relations, the C280 nonetheless can MOVE out of its own way without the long windup that dogged the 190E family. The fold down rear seats, four doors, and seating make you think you're going to get into a luxoslug, but once behind the wheel, the combination of the increased power of the 280 engine, compled with the adaptive transmission and a superb electronic stabilization package make the C280 agile responsive, and genrally a hoot to drive.
Best FeaturesSuperb ABS, a brilliant Braking Assist System, and an Electronic Stability Program coupled with the superb Auto- Stick transmission mean this car goes where you want it predictably, smoothly, and powerfully.
Worst FeaturesThe tires could be use a litlle more stickiness in heavy rain or on ice. The seats, while wonderfully ajustable, could use a lumbar adjust.
