The W203 C-Class was a game changer in the early 2000's. Styled as a mini-S-Class, it offered the same curves as it's bigger brother as the more modest option from dealers. There’s a lot to like going into this one, including the clean history and traceable dealer services. Moreover, this example shows very well in Travertine Beige and offers options like heated seats and a rear power sunshade. With only 55k miles, there's plenty of life left in this car and arguably will be a better long-term solution compared to the more mundane eco-sedans offered today. There’s a good chance this car was treated just as nicely throughout its life as it was the day it was purchased new and will continue to be with the next owner.
