, Senior Pricing Analyst - July 5, 2017

Offers from Mercedes-Benz are almost completely unchanged in July, with one big exception. This month marks the start of the Summer Event Bonus worth up to $4,000 depending on what model you choose. However, unlike a traditional rebate, Mercedes-Benz isn't really advertising it.

One of the better leases at the moment is the 2018 CLA250 at $339/month. Interestingly, that's the exact same deal as the 2017 CLA250, so there's no real incentive not to buy the newer version. As before, the GLA250 features an identical offer, which is good news if you need the versatility of a crossover.

In terms of financing, there continues to be a 2.99% APR rate for 72 months on most models. But that isn't the case for some of the brand's popular SUVs. Unfortunately, the GLC-Class and GLS-Class are still not eligible since both models continue to be hot sellers.

Current offers end July 31, 2017. Please check back for updates.

Tips on Mercedes-Benz Financing and Rebate Offers

Special offers from Mercedes typically don't change much month to month. That's quite different from competitors like Lexus, which are usually "hot" or "cold" one month to the next. Leasing continues to be extremely popular, which may come as no surprise. Expect to see a mix of regular offers as well as Sign & Drive promotions.

Unlike mainstream brands, Mercedes doesn't advertise rebates. Instead, it routinely gives dealers unadvertised dealer cash incentives to help price cars more aggressively. In general, we find that shoppers are able to better take advantage of such offers with larger dealers. You won't see any of this advertised, which means you'll have to request a quote to see the best price.

The best discounts tend to be on slower-selling sedans like the E-Class and S-Class. Lower-priced models like the CLA-Class tend to rarely see deep discounts. Unfortunately, due to the popularity of the brand's SUVs, we often see extremely little discounting on models like the GLC-Class and GLS-Class, so expect to pay a premium on those with few exceptions.
