Looks full size and sporty
By Ann Arbor Bob on
2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Best feature is the distinct design change between the sport and lux. Looks like a full size sedan compared to the previous C-Class (the Civic looked bigger). Rear seat room is equal to that of the E-Class. Lacks in power and gas mileage... but hey, its a Mercedes. If I wanted power I would wait for the AMG to tear the asphalt up...and gas... comon'.. who am I kidding? It's a Mercedes, I didn't buy it for fuel economy! Looks like a 50k car - I highly recommend the AMG 18" wheel upgrade.
DVD/Nav system is great. No touch- screen or buttons on the dash... convenient mouse type device at the front of the arm-rest. Great sound system and voice command/blue tooth makes me feel like James Bond.
Available wood trim on the sport model. I like the sporty exterior but enjoy the lux wood. More storage space. No place for the cell phone/change dish, etc...
