2015 Mercedes Kompressor

Seating for 4 is cozy unless of course the rear riders are tall of torso or hairdo, by which situation the roofline’s inch-lower sleekness will current an interference match. The entrance buckets offer great lateral assistance, and also the stylish fabric is really a welcome alter from present day de rigueur hot-in-summer, cold-in-winter leather-based (a $1410 choice).

And after that there is the pièce de résistance, an concept that was highlighted around the 318ti California but is perfected right here: the $995 panoramic sliding roof. Two glass panels include the whole roof; the entrance you can pop as much as vent or slide back again more than the rear 1 for open-air motoring. Once the roof is open up, a sizable wind-deflector panel before the opening tilts as much as stop any buffeting, booming, or cockpit turbulence at accelerates to ninety mph. The glass is handled to dam all but two.two % from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, and for complete safety, a set of fabric shades may be deployed electrically. It’s a masterpiece, particularly in contrast using the BMW’s big, noisy, and windy fabric sunroof.

That delivers us inevitably towards the query of overall performance. The 192-hp supercharged 4 motivates its 3398-pound load with relative simplicity, masking the quarter-mile in fifteen.seven seconds at ninety mph. That handily beats the 318ti and also the VW GTI (Europe’s authentic scorching hatch), and it might have tied for 2nd fastest within our “Coupes de Grace Redux” comparo (December 1999), matching the Acura Integra GS-R and Toyota Celica GT-S. However the C230 is not as fulfilling to generate as these vehicles. Rowing this ropy six-speed shifter is way much less fulfilling. The gates are as well extensively spaced, and kit engagement is just too obscure. The motor seems a lot better than it did within the initial SLKs, however it does not evaluate using the very best sports activities coupes.
