Best Sports Sedan below $70k
By Al S. on
Vehicle2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)
ReviewA very together car. Sharp looking,
with a very silky smooth engine and
transmission. Gobs of torque that
comes on low in the power band. I
thought Id miss a clutch but now
prefer the speedshift. Not as good as
the Ferraris but better then Porsche.
The C55 has a clean interior with
great ergonomics. I tested the CTS-V,
its cheap interior, confusing shifter,
and wheel hop means its still a work
in progress. I also tested the
M3/M5.The M3 too small, becoming
outdated. The M5(02-03)nice but a bit
heavy in the handling, however nicer
rear seating then the C55. All 3
Germans have great engines though.
Tried the S4, not a fan of AWD and the
styling is just ok. Interior is
comparable to the C55.
Best FeaturesEngine, exhaust note, steering, and those AMG calipers and wheels.
Worst FeaturesNeed adjustable lumbar support. Has a bit of understeer.
