Vehicle Description
THE CAR CONNECTION EXPERT REVIEW Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor GET CURRENT PRICING GET AN INSURANCE QUOTE Over the past six to eight years, we’ve seen Mercedes-Benz go through a radical transition, reaching down the market with cheaper, higher-volume products and a new emphasis on niche products and mainstream luxury appeal. Now, the automaker is continuing to branch out to even smaller niches in the market. For several years, high-performance versions of most of the model lineup from the company’s AMG performance house have been available through dealerships. But there’s no doubt the AMG lineup sacrifices some comfort for its extreme performance. And it carries a price tag (in the case of the C32 AMG, $53k-plus) that’s just out of the budget of many shoppers. If the C32 is just too edgy or extravagant, the normal C-Class models are now also available in several Sport models. For around the same sticker price, you get a firmer, sport-tuned suspension, special body cladding, aluminum interior trim, seven-spoke, 17-inch EVO alloy wheels with performance rubber, and — perhaps most importantly — a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission. The past couple of model years have seen the introduction of several new sport-oriented sedans — including the new Infiniti G35 and the Cadillac CTS, both more performance-oriented than the standard C-Class — so the new Sport model will keep the C-Class competitive in this segment. During a weeklong test drive of a C230 Sport, we concluded that most TCC readers will appreciate the agility of the Sport without noticing any real change in ride comfort. Naming rights The nomenclature is confusing. While the alpha portion of a Mercedes-Benz usually refers to the model (C-Class, in this case), the numeric portion usually refers to the displacement (for instance, G500 has a 5.0-liter engine). But for the C230 (1.8-liter) and the C240 (2.6-liter), this is not the case. While the C320 (actually 3.2-liter) Sport is the obvious model to compete with the CTS and G35, the C230 makes an interesting value proposition, and the difference between the two models isn’t as significant as you might think. After several extended drives with the V-6, we can say the throttle feels just a little more responsive with the C230’s four-cylinder (the spec sheet says it has a different engine-management system), so that helps make up for the difference in power. M-B claims a zero-to-sixty time of 7.6 seconds for the C230 Sports Sedan, with the six-speed manual. With the same gearbox, the C320 Sport is only 0.8 seconds faster in the dash. Both models are limited to a top speed of 130 mph. Yet the C230 goes three miles farther per gallon in the city and four better on the highway. The C230’s 1.8-liter in-line four makes 189 hp and an impressive 192 lb-ft of torque, with a DOHC design and variable intake and exhaust valve timing. Up against the C240’s 168-hp V-6, it makes only 15 lb-ft more torque but it feels significantly more powerful in the real world. And it’s a surprisingly versatile and robust powerplant in combination with the six-speed manual. Peak torque is reached at 3500 rpm, and it’s perkiest in that range, but there’s no sense revving it really high: between 5000 rpm and the 6000-rpm redline the engine produces noticeably more noise without much of a build in power. The five-speed manual transmission previously used on the SLK and C-Class was almost universally panned for its notchy linkage and long throws. A new six-speed manual replaces it, with closer ratios and a new multiple-cone system to aid shifts from second to third and fourth to fifth. The gearbox isn’t especially smooth, but the light clutch action makes it livable for daily use and a lot more fun for those who like more control when they drive. Throttle/clutch coordination was sometimes awkward during gentle acceleration, when the electronic throttle seemed to become touchy. But in hard drivi
