Best featureI have owned several Mercedes-Benz cars and this W204 is one of the best. Even though it is a Mercedes-Benz C-Class model, which are usually a bit smaller, it offers a lot of space in the back, both for head and legs, which was not often the case with C-Class models. The trunk is also very big and easy to access with a very wide and practical opening. Driving position is great. You feel tucked in and everything is at hand. Finish is perfect (after all, this is a Mercedes)and wood panels in doors and dashboard add a lot of elegance. Heated leather seats are a great perk, as is the media screen that folds into the board when not in use. The engine is 250CDI (2.2l common-rail diesel) and it is a beast. It combines the best that diesels have to offer. It is very economical (when driving normally never above 6l/100km, and eco-style driving can bring it close to 4l/100km - the average is about 5.5) and it pulls amazingly well even from very low RPMs - never mind in which gear you are and how fast you are going. If you press the gas pedal, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class pulls with power. It reaches 100km/h in just over 7 seconds, which is amazing. The automatic gears are great and they switch seamlessly. There are loads of driving assist features and I'm not even sure that I have noticed all of them so far. The w204 is very safe and it's got Euro NCAP 5 stars rating for passenger protection. Driving is a real pleasure, you will love it.
The Mercedes Benz C-Class does not have many downsides. The only issue I have had is occassional rattle from the dashboard. It is not very noisy and it happens rarely, but I don’t think this should ever happen in a relatively new Mercedes.
Also, when I was buying the car, I never looked at the rear seats. It turns out that rear folding seats are an optional feature. This is not something that many people will need, but I needed it once and was disappointed that I didn’t have these. Still, now you know, so if you need them, just tick this box when buying a car.
Also, services are not very cheap for any Mercedes car.
