2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Luxury C280 4dr AWD 4MATIC Sedan Overview
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class delivers Mercedes engineering, design and safety features starting at the price of loaded mass-market, midsize sedans.
The C280 Luxury sedan comes with the same comfort and convenience items included in the C230. The primary difference is the C280's engine: a 3.0-liter version of the new V6 rated at 228 horsepower. The C280 also comes standard with the industry's first seven-speed automatic transmission, 16-inch wheels and all-season tires, and wood interior trim rather than aluminum. A Sport model can be equipped with the seven-speed automatic transmission as an option. All-wheel drive, which Mercedes calls 4MATIC, is available. 4MATIC comes packaged with heated front seats.
