Mercedes C-Class Interior
The C-Class is a fairly spacious car with an executive cabin that is well laid out and comfortable to sit in. The Artico leather though not genuine is convincing enough so much so that only a few people can tell it’s not( Artico stands for artificial leather). At the first row, both seats have excellent legroom and can comfortably accommodate tall people. At the second row, the legroom is similarly good and tall people will find it comfortable.
Mercedes C-Class Exterior

Mercedes C-Class Reliability
When it comes to Mercedes Benz, proper maintenance is critical to its long term reliability and longevity. If well maintained, the C-Class w204 can run for years without problems but if you skimp on maintenance, things can get nasty. The w204 is an advanced car with lots of electronics and sensors that control pretty much everything from simple tasks such as turning on wipers to complex tasks such as monitoring lane activity and blind spots. If something goes wrong with these sensors and this usually happens if the car is poorly maintained, the consequences can be serious and costly.
