C230 - Sauerkraut Burner
By duellist on
Vehicle
2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sports Coupe 2dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl S/C 6M)
Review
I have enjoyed the C230 for 6 months and it is definitely one of the best cars I have driven. It is smooth, yet sporty. The C-class sedan is smoother and faster with the V6, however the sweet high revs of the kompressor engine is a different feel all together. The drive brings the boy racer out in everyone. The engines sounds so cool in 1st and 2nd gear up and down Yorkville. On the highway the kompressor engine really comes out to play. Passing was a breeze and torque was strong even in 4th gear. The C230 is very refined and provides all the luxury, status and fun for us Gen- Xers.
Favorite Features
Kompressor Engine - 6000 rpm redline Panrama Roof - Sun, Sky, Moon - It really brightens up the whole interior Brushed Aluminium Centre console - love the industrial look. Front S-class style front end and signal lights on the mirrors.
Suggested Improvements
The Kompressor engine is already blown with a supercharger, but if Mercedes lets AMG tune to the specs of the C32 AMG it would get 0-60 mph times in the 5 second range. They need to add Xenon lights as an option
