2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Sport 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 7A)
Car seems to have much more HP than advertised. Engine lot of torque at low RPM, transmission always find best gear. It's a great car for normal driving, it's only when you floor it that you realize it has only 220hp. Very solid chassis, good handling, nice ride. Interior is very high quality. Lumbar adjustment and center console opener bit hard to reach. 09 has pelvic airbags, memory seats, power adjust. steering wheel, but no power fold in mirrors. Tech. in car is very advanced and very easy to use. Stereo is excellent. Ipod works great. Navi will give street names in center of speedometer. voice contrl.Front end low, easy to scrape. Car needs very little maintenance, interval is 10k.
The way it drives and downshifts right when you want it to. On highway 85MPH is smooth. The handling. The ease of use of the navi, phone, and stereo. The pop-up screen. The way it looks. People stare at this car. From the front it looks great. MPG better than advertised. Takes E85. Very safe car.
Front end low be careful parking, The stuff in the P2 package should be incl in P1 (Xenon's). Needs rear sensors/back up camera like other cars in it's class. MPG should be better for HP car has or vice versa. Extra 40HP would be nice. Lumbar and console open buttons hard to reach.
