Brand New 67 reg Mercedes C200 SE Saloon, save £10,355 off RRP of £29,010 (36% off!) at Drive the Deal - £18,665

Found 28th Aug 2017
After the Alfa Romeo deal, was browsing the drive the deal website once more, and saw a substantial saving off a brand new C200 SE saloon.

Brand new car, available for September delivery on a New “67” Registration. You will be the first registered Keeper.

Available in either Solid Black or Polar White with Black Artico leather interior.

This model carries the following features as part of its standard specification:

  • Headlamps – halogen with integral LED daytime running lamps
  • Rain-sensing windscreen wipers
  • Reversing camera
  • SPEEDTRONIC cruise control
  • Tyre pressure monitoring system
  • Seat Comfort package – driver and front passenger seat
  • Audio20 CD with 7-inch colour display
  • DAB digital radio tuner

It is one of the entry models in the C-class range, and there are numerous other higher spec options available on the drive the deal site (https://www.drivethedeal.com/SpecialOffers.aspx) that may be worth checking out, but
I have picked this model out in particular as it represents the biggest saving (percentage wise) of the whole line up.....and it is a relatively cheap way to get in a brand new Mercedes 4dr saloon for under £19k.

The deal is subject to taking out a hire purchase agreement at 4.9%, but there is nothing stopping you from cancelling this agreement within 14 days of taking delivery of the car.

Delivery by end of September, 2017.

*Also, worth noting, I do not work for Drive the Deal, or in the auto industry at all for that matter, my Audi A4 lease (that I also got from HUKD) is up soon and I am looking for a new car deal for myself, and I am considering ordering this as replacement.

Won't look much like the pic. It will be on 16 inch wheels.

Also artico leather is man made leather so modern day vinyl.

Cheap car, though what are you really achieving driving a poverty spec Merc?

Hybrid or not but still uses road so fair decision. At the end of the day road tax is for keeping roads maintained to keep people safe. Pollution side is only excuse and marketing boost plan. And in overall it was unfair to give free tax to new cars an all in the past...People who could not afford new car were bashed with road tax on second hand cars same size and weight as new ones... All motoring should pay road tax unless its a flying car But even so I guess there will be air way tax My personal believe if you can bash out £29k for a new car why the hell to moan about some ~£500 road tax? If you got new car as a deal saving more than £5k of market price that's already 10 years of road tax covered, your new car not gonna last so long

Road Tax hasn't existed for 80 years...

Vehicle Excise Duty is a tax on vehicles, not roads. The money goes in to general Treasury funds, and isn't earmarked for road maintenance. It literally has sod all to do with how much wear and tear your car causes on our highways.

Back seats are pretty much useless on the c class, still a great price for a Merc.
Good price to get into a new Merc but if this is a manual shift, it might be difficult to sell on when the time comes.:{
Is it an automatic or manual?

Why do all Greek and Cypriot taxi drivers drive these type of vehicles? I thought Greece were on their ass.

Whats the 4.5 grand extra they mention?
This'll be the one with ugly wheels, at least you'd own it unlike all the other C classes that are leased. So many of these on the road now that Mercedes aren't even cool anymore.
Save your money and get a used C63.

Tax bands were supposed to be about pollution, namely co2 produced at the tail pipe.
But what's the logic in a car that can do 120+ MPG and cost £29k pay nearly the same in tax as my friends 2017 5.0l V8 range rover sport costing near £100k that does 15mpg, downhill.

Keep the car 5 years and that's over £2000 in tax alone. A Prius which costs near the same and doesnt do anywhere near the same mpg pays £0.

Like I said I won't pay out of principle so instead settling on a golf GTE.

£0? I thought that the tax was a flat rate £145 for new cars under the price bracket?

Not really much of a deal...well if you like new cars, sure. But You can get a 66 reg Merc c200 with 14k miles for about £18k too. That just shows the depreciation of this car in the first year is quite large. I would never promote buying a new car as just driving the car out of the store means you just lost £5k. But depends on people i guess!

Kind of. What's the point in having a Mercedes and putting up with the bottom of the barrel dealer network and baseline trim when you can have something else better for similar money - no-one's going to be impressed by an entry level Merc and people do tend to buy them for the badge. Certainly not for the driving dynamics anyway.

Though I am surprised you do get some creature comforts like reversing camera and DAB
Lol how much is this worth in 3 years? A third roughly...

Let be clear in one thing - England have horrible roads, at least in Buckinghamshire area.For these road taxes you and if you look how many cars there is, they should be like motorways in Germany, and yet... Most of them are like seconds roads in Russia.


England also has terrible English and grammar now too.

Does this have a built in sat nav?
I've been seeing these on the site for a while. Problem it's base spec. All the useful features are additional extras and can't be added on a mid range polo has more tech then a £30k merc. Your buying the badge not the car. I'm in the market for a merc c or e class but whilst this is cheap it hasn't got the features I'm after

From the landing page it looks like you need to pay another £500 for that to be added
Agree with admast79

Hahaha @ keeping road safe ... in my town lots of pot holes and cracks on roads even leading to busting car tyres .
Owned a Mercedes C class for the last 18 months, certainly not impressed with the dealership or alarm system.

the more technological advanced these cars get, the more electrical faults crop up

You are joking, I take it.
The same thing (okay, a different model is quoted, but it is the same Drive the Deal MB offer) was posted only a couple of weeks ago:

hotukdeals.com/dea…263

What is the point of posting the same thing over and over again?
There is always a lot of debate about leasing vs buying but one thread on here sealed it for me. It said try to always lease a depreciating asset, only buy assets that appreciate in value. I think that's sound financial sense that difficult to oppose.

'achieving' Has life come to.this?


Not in the sense of "achievement" more in the sense of "what's the point?"other than to say you drive a Merc as it's the entry level poverty spec one

Mercedes should be about comfort waftiness and opulence (or with AMG ignorant speed!). Not poverty spec and vinyl seats.

If it's like our Merc then you can just add the Garmin card which can be bought for £60+ and just plugged in

That's what we did

Agree the spec is not good but having had both leather and artico in my mercedes i have to say artico compares well and although it may be a modern vinyl equivalent it is certainly several steps up from most car seat materials. (16" wheels are definitely horrible)

It's also overly simplistic. Aside from property, what will the average man in the street purchase that will appreciate in value?

So that means you can use for around 6-8 months stick 14k on and sell and only lose 1k? Not bad if you ask me. Roughly 7p a mile for a new car.

How many Merc's have you driven?

I went from a '97 BMW to a 2011 Merc and the steering is a lot lot lighter than the BMW, I wouldn't want it to be any more power assisted, and it's no slouch in the power department either.

You're confusing retail resale price on a used car with what you'd actually get as a trade in. Probably £14.5-15K ish tops at a year old.
