1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan


Sporty version of CClass was highly
rated by car mags at the time I bought
this car. I really wanted C-36 for the
horsepower but couldn't afford it, so I
settled for the Sport version. I've
never had a more comfortable long trip
vehicle, never feeling tired or sore
from 8 hours in the seat. I bought the
car for the high engineering quality
and was impressed with the tightness of
the entire body structure. No creaks,
rattles or squeaks. Sport package gave
a lot of options for very little money
and was worthwhile.

Best Features

Hands free integral cell phone was very cool and AMG wheels stood out along with all the carbon fibre trim on the dash and B pillar.

Worst Features

Better exhaust sound, quicker throttle response, 17 inch wheels.
