The 2002 Mercedes-Benz C230 Kompressor comes as a sporty sedan or a sporty hatchback this year. Each has a 2.3 liter engine that delivers 190 ponies and can get to 60 mph in about 7.5 seconds.
Each '02 Benz C230 looks really cool from the side, with its stylish, racy lines, and of course, the 3-point Mercedes star and brilliant grill are undeniable classics. And, those who opted for the panoramic sunroof that give the whole thing a bit of a convertible feel are pretty happy with it.
A couple complaints include the lack of overall power and the idea that the five-speed auto transmission doesn't work real well with the supercharger engine. Then, too, there's the price, but that's another story.

It's the second year of the Benz C240. The 2002 Mercedes-Benz C240 offers a great warranty and an interior of leather and wood that many adore. If you're a purist, though, you can get a model with all leather rather than the standard leather/vinyl mix.
It has a 2.6-liter, V6, 18-valve engine that gives 168 ponies and the trunk is full-sized and certainly helps port stuff from place to place if that's what you want your baby Benz to do.
On the con side, several drivers have reported problems with the electrical system as well as the brakes and some even say the unique-chip designed key can fail at times.

In its second year of production, the 2002 Mercedes-Benz C320 sedan was virtually unchanged from the previous year. Drivers noted that it was a solid, dependable vehicle with an engine, transmission, suspension, and brakes that performed well together. However, some found the C320's to be uninspiring.
The C320 sedan was powered by a 3.2-liter V6 engine that produced 215 horsepower. A five-speed automatic was the standard transmission. No manual was avialable with this vehicle. The automatic was equipped with the Touch Shift feature, which enabled the driver to upshift and downshift, depending on driving conditions, by nudging the shift lever left or right.
Standard features included power windows, power heated mirrors, power-adjustable front seats with memory, leather seats throughout, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob with audio controls mounted on the steering wheel, air conditioning, a keyless entry system, interior wood trim, cruise control, a trip computer, and a premium Bose audio system.
Other features included 16-inch alloy wheels, traction control, anti-lock brakes, an anti-skid system, and stability control, as well as a full complement of airbags.

New for 2002, the Mercedes-Benz C320 wagon joined the C320 sedan in the German automaker's lineup. Like the sedan, it drew many of its design elements from the more powerful S-Class vehicles. And like the sedan, it provided a solid, dependable, and competent driving experience, though there were those who found the design and performance a bit uninspiring.
The C320 was was powered by a 3.2-liter V6 engine that produced 215 horsepower. A five-speed automatic was the standard transmission. No manual was avialable with this vehicle. The automatic was equipped with the Touch Shift feature, which enabled the driver to upshift and downshift, depending on driving conditions, by nudging the shift lever left or right.

If you want power, look no further than the 2002 Mercedes-Benz C32 AMG!
Its 3.2 liter, V6, 349-horsepower engine is to die for. Some say they can get it to go 0-60 in 4.7 seconds; others say the tires just rip up the road and they love it all. But, as with most power cars, there's a drawback - at least today. The '02 Benz AMG just guzzles gas. But, hey, if you like the feeling of being pushed back into your seat while you accelerate, this is THE car.
The looks are sleek and powerful, with a lower grill and fog lights, but for some, it's a puny looking car four-door car - until they see it move. AMG is the in-house tuning division at Mercedes and is supposed to expand the performance of all lines, They achieved it with this - and with their design of a belt-driven supercharger, between two of the cylinders.
It's a rear wheel drive vehicle that power-mongering owners love. The odd part though is that it's standard with a five-speed automatic transmission, which doesn't really seem in keeping with a high performance, fun-to-drive car.
