2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sports Coupe 2dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)


I never associated MB with value, but that's what the C230K gives. It is incredibly fun to drive, and lots of looks from other people as I drive by. The Kompressor growl going up hills is great. The C230K can easily accomodate 4 adults (its bigger inside than it looks). The panoramic sunroof makes an ordinary sunroof look downright inadequate. The C7 wheel package is a steal, and makes the car look even better. Like others, I was considering an Acura RSX hoping to save some bucks. The C230K is worth every penny of the price difference, and more. Drive the two cars and you will know immediately which one you want.

Best Features

Sporty styling, panoramic sunroof, C7 wheels, value, solid German engineering, airbags everywhere

Worst Features

Cupholders. The Ash interior is light and accumulates dirt. The Stone interior from the new E class would be an improvement. For 2003 MB addressed the CD player issue by adding the $400 factory-installed in-dash player; Over $900 for the dealer installed CD changer seemed high.
