Following the success of the W201, the engineers were tasked with following up a car famous for its reliability and thorough engineering. To bring it up to date, 90s Bruno Sacco styling and a modernized interior were added along with a new assortment of powertrains including a four and six cylinder option. The 16-valve 2.3-liter power plant would soon receive a supercharger starting in 1995 which allowed it to output 190 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque, more than the previous generation’s six-cylinder variant. This increase in power coupled with improved comfort and features makes the C230 Kompressor the perfect option for someone looking for a compact daily driver that can deliver power when needed. While not the rarest of choices, the W202 offers phenomenal value for money for any Mercedes enthusiast looking for a good daily driver that offers a classic 90’s Mercedes-Benz experience.
