Motoring.co.uk's used car database is overflowing with fantastic value approved Mercedes-Benz E-Class deals. This robustly constructed executive cruiser is available as a sleek saloon, cavernous estate, and now a sporty coupe. Sounds good to me, so let's see what you get for the money.
From £13,000, consumers can pop down to an approved used dealer and treat themselves to a 2005 E-Class saloon. This model was produced from 2002 – 2008 and, even by today's standards, is a sophisticated and prestigious machine. For this price expect to see roughly 60,000 miles recorded on the stylish dashboard, but this amount of use shouldn't be a problem if the vehicle has been properly maintained.
Now, the estate version of the previous generation E-Class shares the excellent handling characteristics of its sibling, but if you fold the rear seats flat it also holds nearly 2,000-litres of luggage. Very handy too, especially as this vast storage area can be complemented by the optional sliding floor. Most approved 2007 models, which are identifiable by the 'buy safe' logo, have averaged roughly 40,000 miles and start at £23,000.
Mercedes-Benz launched a new E-Class saloon and coupé in 2009, then introduced the new estate variant the following year. The revised range is genuinely exceptional as it excels in numerous areas. These include handling, safety, ride quality, and specification. If you fancy sliding behind the wheel of an approved E-Class Coupé, 2009/10 examples start at £35,000 - £40,000. By contrast, prices for the new saloon and estate start at £30,000. Choices choices!
