Nice Luxury - Lacking in Sport Dept.
By Jimmy Boy on


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


A nice comfortable car with lots of
electronic goodies, however the
suspension is a little soft and their
is a significant amount of body roll.
I drive it on a 40 mile comute, it is
very comfortable and safe. Very quiet
and cruises nicely at 80. When I hit
the backroads it doesn't match a BMW.
The car is quick and gets about 27 mpg
on my commute. The Kompressor is a nice
engine but again doesn't match BMW's
inline sixes.The automatic is smooth
with a little Kompressor lag if you are
driving mildly but you get used to it.
The radio isn't the best but with the
CD changer it is more that adequate.
Made by Alpine. Seats are firm and

Best Features
