New 2.5L V6, New 7 speed automatic
By Jay Ma on


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


The new engine and transmission is very smooth yet energetic. New granite grey color is pretty. The ride is a bit too sporty to my taste due to the 17' Z rated tires. In 'C' mode, the car starts in 2nd gear and shifts up at low revs. It is very smooth and quiet in this mode. However, it feels like the engine only has 120hp that way. In 'S' mode, it starts in 1st gear, and shifts above 4k. The sound is a bit harsh but you can believe the engine has 201hp. I only have this car for a couple of days. Hope the reliability is good.

Best Features

2.5L V6. 7 speed automatic with C/S switch. Rear window sun shade.

Worst Features

Don't like the parking brake pedal, wish it were a hand brake.
