, Senior Pricing Analyst - September 5, 2017

Special offers from Mercedes-Benz continue mostly unchanged for September. As before, the 2018 CLA250 is the most affordable model in the lineup with an attractive $339/month lease. However, if you're looking to finance at a low rate, you're still out of luck.

Last month, Mercedes-Benz cancelled every single promotional APR offer. Prior to that, the brand's bestsellers were available at 2.99% for 72 months. It wasn't a stellar offer, but it was nice to have as an option, especially if you were looking to stretch out your payments.

This month, expect to see a variety of 2018 models arriving at dealers, including the revamped 2018 E-Class coupe and cabriolet, which feature an all-new design akin to the sleek S-Class. Since the vehicle is still very new, expect to pay a premium until inventory begins to improve.

Special offers end October 2, 2017.

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.
