UK Mercedes-Benz retailers have rolled out their latest finance offers for their October to December new car campaigns. The latest deals are through the whole range, with payments as low as £199 per month plus customer deposit for a Mercedes A-Class on Personal Contract Plan (PCP). All offers are for brand new UK cars, and there are scrappage discounts available throughout the range with the recent extension to the scheme.
Most cars have low rate finance attached to them, with APR’s as low as 5.7%, which is competitive to the best bank rates available. An additional benefit is that Mercedes are even paying some of the customer deposit on selected finance schemes, as a result of the challenging economic conditions.
The brand has also launched a range of BlueEFFICIENCY engines, with improved CO2 emissions and higher miles per gallon. The A160 BlueEFFICIENCY CDI does a creditable 64.2 MPG, which is pretty good considering the mini-MPV like proportions.
The C Class has also had the same treatment, with a C180K BlueEFFICIENCY Sport Saloon starting at £299 per month with just £3199 deposit, the remainder being paid by the dealer. That’s around the same payments as you would find on a £12500 loan over 4 years, so it makes perfect sense to go down this route, especially considering the 45 MPG economy.
Comparing the offers in the prestige sector to the mass market produces a few surprises. Who would have thought that you could have a mid-range Mercedes-Benz car for the same payments and with the same economy as a Ford Focus?
