Model News

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Luxury models get increased equipment for 2007, with front power seats and an adjustable steering column with memory feature, plus 16-inch alloy wheels, now standard. Also, Sport models get a new, distinct six-spoke, 17-inch wheel design, and an AMG-design rear decklid spoiler and dual sport exhaust pipes. Inside, the Sports get black Birdseye maple trim instead of aluminum.

The base C230 Sport model can now be run on any blend of ethanol and gasoline up to E85 (85 percent ethanol).

The C-Class will be completely redesigned for the 2008 model year.


Value Writeup

Whether as a Sport or Luxury model, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes quite lavishly equipped and strikes a nice balance between comfort and performance. The Luxury models especially offer a stronger value for 2007, with increased standard equipment without a significant rise in price, and in Sport guise, the C-Class is one of the few models in its class to offer a manual transmission.


Model Highlights

The 2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is available in three different engines--designated by C230, C280, and C350--and in two different sub-models, Sport and Luxury. The C230 is only available in Sport guise, while the other two models are available either way.

The C230 is powered by a 201-horsepower, 2.5L V6 engine, while the C280 comes with a 228-horsepower, 3.0L V6 and the C350 gets a 268-horsepower, 3.5L version of the same V6 family. Each of the V6 engines have aluminum construction and four valves per cylinder, with variable valve timing for good response throughout the rev range. The C230 Sport and C350 Sport come with a six-speed manual transmission; a seven-speed automatic is optional on those and standard on Luxury models.

4MATIC full-time all-wheel drive is optional on C280 and C350 Luxury models, and includes a five-speed automatic transmission instead. The system sends 60 percent of torque to the rear wheels during normal driving and routes more to individual wheels as needed.

Whether Sport or Luxury, each of the primary C-Class models come extremely well equipped, especially when it comes to interior appointments. Luxury models get hand-finished laurel wood trim, while Sport models now have black Birdseye maple.

Sport models also feature staggered-width 17-inch six-spoke alloy wheels and Z-rated performance tires for improved control in enthusiastic driving. Sport models also get a stiffer suspension calibration.

All C-Class models get front-seat side air bags, side curtain air bags front and rear, and active front head restraints, plus ESP stability control, along with anti-lock brakes and brake assist.

Major options, mostly offered in larger packages, include a bi-xenon headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, a harman/kardon Logic7 surround sound system, and rear side air bags.


Pros

Interior comfort; safety; acceleration (C350); manual transmission (Sport); available all-wheel drive (Luxury).

A SOFTWARE CALIBRATION NUMBER (SCN) CODING RECEIVED ON THE AFFECTED VEHICLES DURING A RECENT WORKSHOP VISIT WAS INCORRECT. DEPENDING ON THE MODEL YEAR AND MODEL AFFECTED, THE RESULTS OF AN INCORRECT SCN CODING CAN AFFECT A NUMBER OF VEHICLE SAFETY AND EMISSION FUNCTIONS INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF FUNCTIONS: (1) THE FUEL GAUGE READINGS MAY BE INCORRECT; (2) A STUCK FUEL-LEVEL SENSOR MAY NOT BE DISPLAYED IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER; (3) THE OBD SYSTEM MAY CAUSE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO ILLUMINATE INCORRECTLY; AND, (4) THE SPEEDOMETER MAY BE OUT OF TOLERANCE.

Consequence
IN THE EVENT OF A VEHICLE CRASH, THE ELECTRICAL FUEL PUMP MAY NOT RECEIVE A CRASH SIGNAL THAT IS REQUIRED FOR THE FUEL PUMP TO DISCONNECT AND PREVENT FUTURE FUEL DELIVERY AS DESIGNED.

DEALERS WILL RECODE THE SCN FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING AUGUST 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MERCEDES-BENZ AT 1-800-367-6372.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
