2009 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C350 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


I picked my C350W at the Sindelfingen factory as part of the European Delivery Alps/Black Forest rally trip. The level of comfort, quiet, and road performance is simply outstanding. As an engineer I really appreciate all of the hidden details and overall sophistication in the design features. I have driven stretches of autobahn at 110 MPH and the car is serenely quiet and rock solid at this speed. This is combined with strong brakes, effortless tracking on winding country roads, and unexpectdly good mileage on this trip 24.9 MPG overall. Firm seating comfortable for long stretches, awesome HK Logic 7 sound system, smart HID lights, and great instrumentation and controls.

Best Features

Great exterior looks (lots of stares in US), ride and handling, strong brakes, smooth and powerful engine and transmission, MultiMedia system, Bluetooth cell-phone integration.

Worst Features

A tad more rear legroom, upgrade to AA rated all-season tires, mode to direct gas injection engine for more power and improved fuel efficiency.
