Used Mercedes car buying guide
Mercedes-Benz, or just ‘Merc’, is the peak of luxury auto. Their cars have been around for over a century and have a reputation for creating some of the coolest cars on the market. What sets Mercedes-Benz apart is their innovation and technology, cutting-edge safety features, premium infotainment systems, and top-of-the-line powertrain options. Their cars always look good too. If you’re looking for high-performing cars with a premium feel, a used Mercedes car is a great buy.
Which used Mercedes model is for me?
Whether you’re buying a compact sedan, cool convertible, or luxury SUV, you can expect your used Mercedes car to come decked out with advanced tech and refined stylings. Here’s a few popular Mercedes models:
The GLC is available with diesel or petrol engines, and 18 or 20-inch wheels that provide great handling. As a luxury mid-size SUV, it’s similar to an Audi Q5 or BMW X3. It delivers a sporty driving enjoyment, and its smaller size is perfect for urban roads.
Elegant and powerful, the GLS SUV combines all the best Mercedes has to offer. The 7-seater is well-equipped with smart tech and a comfortable, refined cabin. For the best driving experience, the driver-adjustable air suspension and adaptive damping system provides excellent driving comfort and handling.
Known as the ‘Baby Benz’, the A-Class is fun to drive, with responsive handling, quick acceleration and steering. It comes as either a sedan or hatch, with performance-oriented AMG models as well. If you’re looking for something more refined to step up your daily drives, the A-Class range is a fantastic choice.
The C-Class comes in a range of styles including sedans, hatchbacks, coupes, and wagons. It’s comfortable and versatile for your family on daily commutes and longer trips, with stylish looks inside and out.
The E-Class has been around for a while, but still excites many with its blend of comfort, performance, and advanced tech. There’s plenty of models to choose from, including an All-Terrain model that rides higher and smoothly on 4WD trips.
Are used Mercedes cars reliable when it comes to safety?
Mercedes cars have a stellar reputation for safety. Their driving assistance package includes advanced safety tech like active speed limit assist, active stop and go, lane change assist, pre-collision system, and blind spot monitoring. You’ll find 5-star ANCAP ratings across the range, and many used Mercedes models were also selected as the ‘safer pick’ in a study by the Centre for Road Safety.
What makes a used Mercedes car a good buy?
Used Mercedes cars offer the same enviable luxury and performance at a more affordable price than buying new. If you’ve had your eye on your dream car for a while, buying a used Mercedes is well worth a look. You’ll be able to get past long waiting times for new models, get yourself a car that’s known for holding its value well and can last beyond twenty years with regular maintenance.
