Most shoppers will likely prefer to finance this month. Although Mercedes' 0% APR deal is limited to the 2021 GLC-Class, other models are eligible for rates as low as 1.99% which is fair for a luxury brand. In the case of the 2021 C-Class, shoppers have the choice between 1.99% APR for 36 months or up to $3,000 in unadvertised dealer cash. Dealers are also being incentivized to sell AMG models which could mean savings if you can find a willing dealership.

Leases continue to be poor values across the entire lineup. We expect deals may get better in the coming months as the new model years begin arriving, especially on models like the 2021 GLA-Class. In terms of payment, the 2021 A-Class is the most affordable option at $369/month.

Offers listed here are available nationally through April 30, 2021.

Must-Know Advice For Mercedes Buyers

Hidden savings. Unlike mainstream brands, Mercedes doesn't advertise rebates. Instead, the company gives dealers unadvertised dealer cash incentives to help lower prices. The best discounts tend to center on slower-selling sedans like the E-Class and S-Class. In some cases, you may even find low APR for up to 72 months.

Getting the best price. Like other luxury brands, Mercedes imposes rules on its dealers that keep them from advertising below certain prices. As a result, the price you see online or on TV for a lease or purchase may not be the lowest one you can get. In most cases, you'll need to request a quote to see the best price possible.

Little variation month to month. Special offers from Mercedes typically don't change much from one month to the next. Expect to see the best deals on models like the A-Class in terms of monthly payment, while leases on the popular GLC tend to be expensive.

Savings for existing customers. Mercedes has been offering current owners & lessees special savings in the form of loyalty discounts. Available through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, these incentives generally require financing and offer a greater advantage when buying instead of leasing.

Not every car is easy to find. Mercedes offers many different versions of many of its vehicles. For example, the C-Class is available as a sedan, coupe, or cabriolet. However, don't expect each version to be easy to find. In many cases, we find that dealers tend to stock more popular models like the GLC or GLE crossovers.

Determined to buy a specific car? Factory orders can be a great way to get exactly the options you want. The downside is that the wait time can be up to 2-3 months on average. That said, this may be one of the few alternatives buyers have to buy specialty models like the GLC Coupe or a limited-production AMG.

Used car deals. Thinking of buying used vs. new? The Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Program offers the advantage of an extended warranty. In addition, Mercedes-Benz Financial often offers special rates on factory-certified vehicles. Check out our monthly CPO deal analysis for the latest info.
