Anyone have any experience or heard anything on the new c230 sport sedan? Looks sharp, specs are not that bad. Is the inline 4 worth it?

YES go for the 230 sport sedan, i think it's a better value than the 240 sedan. It drives well, good MPG, and better styling ques! The 240 is under powered i think. If you want to get a good grasp of the power of the 230 inline engile go test drive a c230 coupe and see for yourself..

I disagree

The C230k coupe will not outperform the C230k sedan. The sedan is over 100 pounds lighter, and the two cars have the same suspension and brakes. The sedan will have a better front/rear weight ratio.

Invoice

If you are in the US, the invoice price can be calculated as follows:

(MSRP - destination fee) x 0.93 + destination fee = invoice

Just got back from the dealer. The c230k sedan is simply amazing! There is a little lag time from hitting the gas until take off but it impressed me enough that I'm gonna take it. The kicker is I have to special order it because none of the dealers around have it with the bi-xenon lights. Looks like Mid March. My understanding is that they don't intend to stock the bi-xenon cars because they find no one is willing to pay the extra $$. I drove the c240 last week and that can't compare to this one. This handled better and LOOKS better. Big deal so it has a smaller engine but.... more hp and torque. [:D]

Andy,

1.)Yes, they are on the same chassis.
2.)Side by side they look almost identical. I say almost because the c230 has the sport package and looks much nicer!
3.)Yeup, it's rear wheel it does have stability and traction control.
4.)I'm thinking the 4-matic is not available haven't seen or heard of it in the 230 but who knows.
5. c230 - 189hp; 192 Torque // c240 168hp; 177 Torque

Hope this helps......

Andy, 4-matic is not not available on the C230K sedan...

i would stop by the dealer once they are available. sounds like it is better than the c240, in terms of price & power. uh.
MB has never made AWD available for thier 4 cylinder cars, and I don't expect that they will do this anytime soon. For the time being, the 4-matic system is only available on the C240 and the C320.
