Hot Car Deal – Save £6,000 on Mercedes C-classSave up to 22% on this premium large car

21 January 2014

IMPORTANT: Read the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with any car purchase.

We found big discounts on the Mercedes C-class back in October, but with a new model just around the corner you can save a further £2,000.

The current Mercedes C-class has been with us since 2007. Its main rival, the BMW 3 Series, was overhauled in 2012, so the C-class is overdue a spruce-up. However, with a new C-class on the way, you can find some huge discounts on the current model.

Mercedes may be famed for high prices, but with discounts of more than 20%, the C-class is available from just over £20,000. The C-class is a quiet and capable motorway cruiser with a plush, high-quality interior and it boasts a variety of efficient and powerful engines. Optional extras can be very pricey, though, so keep an eye on the total price if you start exploring the options list.

Hot Car Deal hunters please note:

  • The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
  • Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
  • The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document. 
  • Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
