Like its smaller cousin the C230, the Mercedes-Benz C350 is one sharp-looking luxury vehicle that will take you where you want to go with considerable luxury and refinement. Oh, and let’s mention with great performance too!
The C350 has a 24 valve dual overhead cam high pressure die-cast alloy block V-6 that pumps out 200 kW of mouth-watering power! This well-tuned engine is mated with a 7-speed electronically controlled automatic that adjusts to your driving style. There is also a 5-speed automatic with optional 4MATIC or all-wheel drive. There is a touch-shift which allows the driver to downshift or up shift with just a nudge of the lever right or left. There is even an Optimum Gear Programming that allows one-touch selection of the best gear for maximum acceleration or engine braking. There is a driver’s selectable comfort mode that starts the vehicle moving in second gear or reverse gear and upshifts at a lower rpm. This helps to improve control on slippery surfaces.
Safety includes the Electronic Stability Programme that watches how you drive and adjusts the engine output accordingly, ensuring that you stay on the road and head in the direction you want. There are front airbags with an OCS system that automatically turns the front passenger’s front airbag on or off depending on the weight in the front passenger seat. There are side curtain airbags on the front and rear. As you would expect from Mercedes-Benz, the C350 sports quite an array of luxury on the inside too, from sumptuous leather to digital dual-zone climate control, and upper and lower temperature settings that help compensate for direct sunlight. Ten-way power front seats each have 3 position memory, while the driver can play with a multi-function steering wheel that not only is 4-way positioning but contains the cruise, audio and communications buttons at a touch of his/her thumb.
The Mercedes-Benz C350 is one smooth-running luxury performer. If it were a great read, you just wouldn’t want to put this one down!
