Best used Mercedes C-Class PCP finance deals

Mercedes C-Class prices are pretty steep, but pick a used model on PCP finance and you can get a great car for an affordable monthly payment

The Mercedes C-Class has been around since 1993 but Mercedes’ pedigree for upmarket medium saloon cars stretches back far further than that. Now in its fourth generation, the C-Class recipe is something Mercedes has had time to master - and its cars are famed for their luxury, refinement and solidity.

Little wonder then that this has been the best-selling Mercedes model. But don't think this means you have to pay top dollar to get one - especially if you opt for a used version on PCP finance, with payments from £209 per month.

However, the competition within this sector has never been fiercer. Alongside the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series, these days rivals to the Mercedes C-Class come from all over. With crossovers and SUVs becoming the mainstream choice for a growing number of drivers, the C-Class is in danger of becoming a niche product.

Among the 597 models we have available, there is a huge choice of petrol and diesel engines as well as more economical hybrid and performance-orientated AMG models in a mix of saloon, sleek coupe and practical estate formats. If a Mercedes C-Class sounds like your kind of ride, read on to see more of the best Mercedes C-Class PCP deals available.

MERCEDES C-CLASS BUYERS' GUIDE

Mercedes C-Class SE offers

First up is SE, the entry-level C-Class trim level, and while it has all the essentials, there's not a lot else here to keep you interested. As standard, the SE’s highlights include a reversing camera and Active Parking Assist, which helps guide you into a parallel parking space. There’s also Dynamic Select, giving you a choice of five driving modes, from comfort to sport.

In addition, there’s also cruise control, rain-sensing wipers and electrically folding mirrors. Inside, later models of the SE gets a 10-inch media display, digital radio, sat-nav and man-made heated leather seats. With gloss black trim and subtle interior mood lighting, the C-Class’s cabin looks and feels very elegant. Split-folding rear seats make the C-Class surprisingly practical for a saloon, too.

Safety kit is plentiful as you’d expect. Mercedes’ Collision Prevention Assist Plus is standard, a radar-based system that warns you of impending danger and helps you avoid it.

Mercedes C-Class Sport Edition offers

Step up to the C-Class Sport Edition and the differences are mainly cosmetic. In addition to the SE’s standard spec, you get bigger alloy wheels, brighter LED headlights and suspension that’s been lowered by 15mm for a sportier drive.

Inside the sports detailing continues, with leather sports seats available in either black or beige, and a sports steering wheel. The Sport Edition models also unlock the Premium and Premium Plus optional equipment packages, allowing you to add features like keyless entry and start, wireless charging, an upgraded sound system, a panoramic roof and a 360-degree camera. It’s worth looking out for a used car that’s had one of these packages fitted.

Mercedes C-Class AMG Line offers

Here is the top end of the standard C-Class range before we reach the AMG versions. It offers the longest list of equipment out of the three models on offer and also the most engaging drive.

The AMG Line trim level gives you a taste of Mercedes-AMG models without the price tag (or the power). The highlights include AMG-designed five-spoke alloys, an AMG bodykit, a restyled radiator grille and sporty upgrades to the steering, suspension and brakes, to make the car feel sharper to drive.

Inside, in addition to the Sport version, AMG Line trim adds 12.3-inch digital dials, an AMG-styled flat-bottomed steering wheel, AMG leather sports seats (available in black, red or brown) and pedals finished in brushed stainless steel.

Mercedes C43 4MATIC Edition offers

Now we're getting towards the exciting end of the Mercedes C-Class range. The C43 is the entry-level AMG model and the biggest difference over the regular cars is the step up to a potent 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine with 390hp, which fires the car from 0-62mph in just 4.7 seconds, assisted by a four-wheel-drive system, which helps the car to make the most of the power without spinning the wheels. This engine comes as standard with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and steering wheel paddles.

In terms of equipment and styling changes, the C43 gets a more pronounced AMG bodykit with a rear diffuser, quad exhausts, AMG decals on the brake callipers and a boot lip spoiler. Inside, there are leather sports seats with contrasting stitching and AMG badging.

Mercedes C63 AMG offers

The C63 AMG raises the performance and kit ante yet again. Power comes from a 476hp 4.0-litre V8, which produces an even more raucous engine note and gives a 0-62mph time of 4.1 seconds.

In addition to the C43, the C63 gets 10-spoke alloys, a performance exhaust, a rear-axle differential lock for improved handling, silver brake callipers and angular exhaust pipes. Inside, the C63 gets Mercedes’ COMMAND Online system with touchpad (a cost option on other models) for the media system with 3D navigation instructions, better graphics, and voice recognition, as well as wireless charging, smartphone integration and sports seats with soft Nappa leather.

Mercedes C63 AMG S offers

Finally, we have this, the C63 AMG S. This is the top-spec C-Class model and also the raciest, with an even more mighty 510hp V8 engine under the bonnet, which punches it to 62mph in just 4.0 seconds - not to mention the fantastic sounds that come from the exhaust pipes. 

This car is pushing the boundaries of supercar speed, but it remains a comfortable and elegant saloon that still has enough space for four adults. In addition to the C63 AMG above, Mercedes removes the electronic speed limiter, increasing the top speed from 155mph to 180mph. It also adds 19-inch alloy wheels, red brake callipers and a lap timer.
