Buy Used Mercedes-Benz Models

Officially operating under its current name since 1926, Mercedes-Benz has had around a hundred years to perfect its recipe for luxury vehicles. The automaker has a reputation for producing powerful, expensive products and there are numerous vehicle classes to choose from. Initially prioritizing pure grandeur over power, the modern lineup comprises models that focus on various priorities.

There are so many Mercedes-Benz models to choose from that it is unlikely you’ll struggle to find one that suits your needs perfectly. Mercedes has a pretty large footprint in the USA, so it is probable that your nearest dealer has one ready to go. While plenty of shoppers opt for a new Mercedes, just as many opt for used versions with little mileage instead. That explains why a number of older versions are still on the road today.

Mercedes-Benz Lineup 2020

The lineup is extensive, and individual cars are spread throughout Mercedes-Benz classes; the various types each focus on a different level of luxury and style.

  • A-Class - The newest cars in this category are aimed at being the manufacturer’s most affordable spec, with a choice between regular and performance variants.
  • C-Class - Bookended by the entry-level series and the more lavish E-Class, this is one of MB’s top sellers.
  • E-Class - Just below the ultimate luxury level, this group hosts some of Mercedes’ latest sedans, station wagons, and coupes.
  • S-Class - The flagship of the brand, this series hosts a variety of coupes, sedans and convertibles. You even get your choice of a hybrid powertrain for this top-of-the-line Mercedes.
  • G-Class - The home of boxy and capable vehicles, it has kept the same exterior styling for years and still manages to catch the attention of many.
  • GLA-Class - This is the most frugal SUV in terms of cost - it is a capable crossover that marks the entry into the range.
  • GLB-Class - Slightly more expensive, this high-rider is more indulgent and has more substantial dimensions for those with a kinder budget and the need for some extra space.
  • GLC-Class - This is the best family-hauler on offer from Merc, and with its larger size comes a bigger price tag.
  • GLE-Class - It is among the largest and most deluxe high-riders on offer from the brand, this large high-rider is perfect for a sizable family with loose purse strings.
  • GLS-Class - Sitting near the top of Mercedes’ price list, this is the most debt-inducing and plush family-hauler of the bunch.
