2. 2005 Mercedes-Benz C240 4matic review: Exterior

In 2005, all Mercedes cars in the C-Class received refreshment in its exterior design including revised taillights and larger set quad-ovoid headlights. The changes are exquisite and hard to recognize for a lot of people. But when looking at their exterior, everyone can immediately identify any C-Class as a model of Mercedes-Benz.

The 2005 Mercedes-Benz C240 4matic sedan gets common themes with the bigger S-Class and E-Class model but it keeps its own specials. Speaking of the sedan aero dynamical system, it boasts to be one of the best models in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. The sedan has a drag coefficient of 0.27, improving fuel efficiency and reducing wind noise.

In 2005, the sedan was trimmed with more pronounced fender lips and lower sills, which were previously for the sport variants. Meanwhile, the sport model comes with a sportier air dam and a lower and more aggressive cladding which was specially designed for the exotic AMG models of the car brand. The sport models come more outstanding with blue-tinted glass and a unique and darker grille having 3 horizontal bars.

As all model of the car brand, the Mercedes-Benz C240 2005 also comes adorned with the traditional three-pointed star of Mercedes as an integrated fan, a symbol that every Mercedes-Benz buyer wants to own.

It was said that the C240 sedan is a base for building an elegant wagon and the wagon was considered as the neatest model in the C-Class. The roof shows a sweeping line into the rear gate, providing a glossy look that helps to lessen the stodginess inherent of the utility design of a station wagon. The fresh look makes the wagon comes more practical for car owners.

The C240 still keeps the entire luxurious and comfortable feel of a Mercedes. It comes with an excellent firm and convenient supportive seats: they are soft enough to comfort for arching and tired passengers.  For the sedan models, the seats look more traditional yet more luxurious than the sporty models’. The 2005 model gets an additional adjustable lumbar support, making the lower back more comfortable. Compared to the sport sedan, the seat of the sedan appears stark, but brings considerably more side bolstering for spirited driving.

Speaking of the rear seats, both sedan and wagon models offer comfort and generous space. They are designed as a theater style. The rear seats are slightly higher than those at the front, giving the people sitting in the back a better view without significantly affecting.

4. 2005 Mercedes-Benz C240 engine and performance

The base version of the 2005 Mercedes-Benz C240 4matic is powered by a 2.6 L V6 engine 

The engine comes equipped with triple-valve technology, in that the double-wall exhaust manifolds and a single-valve reduce emissions by increasing the temperature of the exhaust port and burning most of the combustion process’s remnants before they achieve the catalysis. The catalyst also warms up sooner after a cold start, also reducing emissions.

Needless to say, all models of Mercedes C-Class provide a perfect balance between driving and handling, excellent braking system and nice steering and the C240 2005 is no exception. The C240 2005 follows the tradition of Mercedes of a responsive steering and a smooth ride, along with a good traditional sense of driving, providing the car a superb handling capacity through the bends.
