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


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-

Best 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.

Worst Features

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
