3/4 Front Glamour 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

CarsDirect Pricing Insider

What you must know before buying the Mercedes-Benz CLA250
, Automotive Editor -
  • Low entry-level price has made demand skyrocket
  • With rising demand comes rising prices
  • Shortage of stock, despite increased production
  • Promotional lease deals available

A "cheap" Benz equals a desirable Benz:

Attach a sub-$30k price tag to a Mercedes and this is what happens; buyers flocked to dealers and snatched up nearly all of the inventory. This has led to increased prices, but it is still the least expensive Mercedes on the lot, if you can find one on a lot that is.

Short on inventory:

With this high demand comes massive shortages, and despite increased production, some regions are still suffering severe shortages. You may want to call around or check online for availability before heading out to dealers.

Don't expect discounts:

Mercedes-Benz passes on discretionary discounts to dealers on some models, but do not expect this on the CLA250, as its demand remains high even with rising prices. Dealers continue having stock issues when selling it above MSRP, so why bother discounting it any?

Promotional leases available, but still no APR deals:

With a hot-selling car comes a hot-selling certified used car in the future, and this is obviously Mercedes' plan with the CLA250, as it is offering a pair of promotional lease deals. This is in hopes of getting factory-serviced CLA250s back on dealer lots as certified used cars in 36 months. These promotional lease deals cover the CLA250 and CLA250 4MATIC. The former requires $3,623 at signing and 36 payments of $329, while the latter calls for $3,743 at signing and 36 payments of $349. Until sales cool off a little, don't expect to see any APR deals.
