Why you go dey compare the C klasse with Corolla. Compare with Lexus IS and Infiniti G sedan. Then we'll see if it's actually better or not.

what year of is?cos c230k is 05 while is started around 07.
So should we compare same years?
Cos that will be the w204(c250 from c230 in w203) against the is?
Do you really wanna do this?

Lol, W203 is the worse engineered Benz, Fact. The best engineered Benz are W140, W202, W124, W123, W201. Even a BMW E36 and E46 are way better engineered thoroughbred sports oriented sedan.

Body and engines. W202 have better engineered suspensions, better engineered transmissions engine and body. W203 have rust issues, suspensions issues, cooling issues, interior trim falling off, engine issues, transmission issues. Name it. It's a wicked marriage of Daimler and Chrysler that culminated into the bastard w203.

May it be known I've owned a unit so I know what I am talking about

and I've owned it since 2014 alongside an E220cdi.
Engine;m271 churns out 190hp and 192 ib-ft of torque for a 1.8l engine.you don't expect it to be d most reliable,do you?
Flaws with the m271;
Oil pump is located in the engine and has a timing of it's own which most of our artisans can't fix.hence if the pump fails,you are buying a new engine
No oil dipstick.if oil sensor fails,checking oil level and quality becomes herculean,hence can lead to failure.
It's a very tiny but powerful supercharged engine that responds at the slightest pedal touch,so these things are expected.
Suspensions,yes.you gotta work on the front legs once a year.
Cooling?yes it fails,mostly because people wanna cut corners
Interior trim?i don't know about that cos mine is still sharp.
Please can you also talk about the balance shaft issues on the m272 cheesy
Whoever goes for luxury should be able to pay the price.
About the gearbox,not true.it is literally bullet proof.
One has to be extra careless to destroy one of those.
The only thing i do not like of all you listed up there is the m271

Test a 7G tronic unit. The 5GTronic was from the W202. Very bulletproof. I am referring to all W203

The 7G tronic was introduced in the year 2006 and not the previous years. And it's a very sensitive transmission and not bulletproof at all.

Yes there's a 2005 IS. I'm not a fan of the Lexus when compared to Benz. But kingreign i believe should be in a better position to compare.

You want start wetin I go write and you go sell off that car?

For starters, there's an Lexus IS from 98-05. And it can compare better than your c 230k by far. It's even an enthusiasts delight. The chronograph styled instrument cluster is a beauty to behold, the chrome stick shifter is also a beauty to behold. No start wetin you no go fit end.
