2007 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
The C-Class gains a flexible-fuel model, the C230, for 2007 and loses its performance version, the C55 AMG.

The C-Class comes only in sedan body style and features a group of twin-cam V-6 engines: a 201-horsepower 2.5-liter for the C230, a 228-hp 3.0-liter for the C280, and a 268-hp 3.5-liter in the C350.

The 2007 lineup includes the C230 sport sedan, C280 luxury sedan, and C350 sport and luxury sedans. Active front head restraints that reduce the likelihood of whiplash injuries are standard.

Each sedan has standard rear-wheel drive. Luxury models can have 4Matic all-wheel drive and a five-speed automatic transmission. All V-6 models use a seven-speed automatic, but C230 and C350 sport sedans can be equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox.


Exterior
C-Class models gained redesigned clear headlamps and revised taillamps for 2005. Sport and Luxury models get new, exclusive wheel designs. Bi-xenon headlamps and a moonroof are available.

Interior
C-Class sedans seat five occupants. Sport sedans feature bird's-eye maple interior trim. Mercedes-Benz's Comand and Tele Aid systems are available in all models.

Under the Hood
Three twin-cam V-6 engines with four valves per cylinder are available in C-Class models. The C230 becomes a flexible fuel vehicle, meaning it can run on either E85 or regular gasoline. The C280 sedan has a 228-hp, 3.0-liter V-6, while a 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 is installed in C350 sedans. A six-speed manual gearbox or seven-speed automatic with ...

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
