Europcar Heathrow - Mercedes C class or similar

I've booked an automatic Mercedes C Class or similar from heathrow, has anyone any recent experience on what other 'similar' cars are usually offered and whether any include sat nav as standard or apple car play?

The 'entry level' C class, in UK specification, has neither navigation or carplay. You might get a higher specification model but no guarantee.
Ironically it's the supposedly cheaper brands that already have these features as standard. I had a vauxhall Corsa (economy size car) a few days ago and it had both factory navigation and carplay.

Thanks for the advice. Perhaps I have selected the wrong car. Primarily just wanted an automatic of a decent size for 2 adults, 2 kids and bags for whizzing around the country. Iíll see how it goes next week.

So we arrived in Heathrow Terminal 3, waited about 10 minutes for the bus and arrived at the Europcar depot about 20 minutes after departing the terminal. Having checked in online I received my keys almost straight away and within an hour of landing was on the M25. So overall was quite happy that aspect, considering the Europcar reviews.

As for the vehicle, I received a 2018 Mercedes C220d Estate/Station Wagon in Black. Automatic, with sat nav, leather seats, self parking, auto braking etc. 5000 miles on it. I didn't notice how many of these they had, but I'll definitely be booking a PDAR Mercedes C Class again from Europcar.
