2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Having looked at all competing models, the 2006 C230 is easly my favorite. I've had it for about 7 weeks and still have to pinch myself ever morning before driving to work. It's easly the most timless design inside and out with superb detailing, fit and finish. I constantly receive looks of admiration and positive feedback. The perfomance is excellent in every way. The only notable exception is the occassional lack of transmission responsivness at lower rpm range. This is somewhat unacceptable for a sports sedan. Freeway perfomance is excellent, with amazing acceleration and incredible braking power. I often find myself driving too fast because of how smooth, quiet and solid the car is.

Best Features

Feeling of sophistication and prestige, gorgeous ash interior with aluminium accents, beautiful body design and detailing, excellent offset wheels with meaty tires, solid feel and silky-smooth performance, blue tinted windows, the sound doors make when you shut them close

Worst Features

Better transmission responsivness, standard iPod integration, headlamps that look more like the ones on CLK coupes, protection from brake dust, plastic paneling in front foot wells to protect carpet from getting constantly dirty - especially on cars with ash interior
