No match with 2.5-litre six at all. Although the provides quite good (even in automatic), the engine coarse and feels reluctant medium rev, preventing the from enthusiastic flat

While the saloon and CLK have 3.2 V6 to from, Mercedes decided to the Sports Coupe to four-pots to avoid internal competition. is of course a big mistake, because the V6 have made the Sports a really desirable car. It the Compact easily in beauty It offers more room. It handle as well but still enough. What it desperately is a decent engine. Listen, give it a V6 as soon as possible !
