Mercedes Benz C180

mercedes benz c180 review

Cast your eye over the curvy roof-line and delicate exterior features, and it becomes evident that the Mercedes Benz C180 is simply beautiful. The small Germanic design is crisp and very elegant, and even though the C180 is a small Merc, the body retains the signature Mercedes-Benz class and styling that has been the jewel in Mercedes’ crown for years.

The Mercedes-Benz C180 is most commonly known as the C180 Kompressor. It sports a 1.8 litre engine that is reasonably efficient on petrol consumption. It comes in a variety of transmissions to suit your taste, depending on how you like to drive.

When you review the drive, you’ll find that the Mercedes Benz C180 clings to the road nicely and can be pushed hard to give not only swift progress but also a rewarding drive. The chassis feels light and responsive, while the tyres bite beautifully into the bitumen surface, providing accurate steering and balanced body-control. The Mercedes-Benz C180 has a very rigid body shell for its class, and remains very vibration-free – even over rough and undulating surfaces.

Safety sits at a premium level and so the C180 comes with front airbags, and front and rear side curtain and door airbags. Automatic headlamps, ABS Anti-lock brakes, Electronic Stability Programme and power-assisted steering are just some of the incredible items available. Really, such items are the best in autmotive engineering and design.

The interior and amenities are quite astonishing, to say the least. A multi-changer CD player, climate control air conditioning, electric windows, electric locks and electric mirrors, a steering column that is height adjustable, and remarkably supportive electric leather seats are all standard items. The seats are exceedingly comfortable for those long treks. There is a split folding rear seat, tinted glass and a multi-function steering wheel that houses the speed limiting cruise control as well as the stereo functions.

Drive a Mercedes and experience the best. The style, comfort and engineering astound. So, if you’re looking for a well-priced Mercedes Benz that turns heads, it’s worth taking a hard look at the Mercedes-Benz C180. We hope you enjoyed our independent Mercedes Benz C180 review!
