What used Mercedes C-Class coupe will I get for my budget?
Around £20,000 is the starting price for a C-Class Coupé. This will buy you a 2016 model in excellent condition with an average mileage for the year and a full history, from either a trader of an independent dealer. Up the folding to between £25,000 and £28,000 and you should be able to get a 2017 model, with the same criteria. Revised models from mid-2018 onwards with the improved engine range and new infotainment system can be found from £30,500. Expect to pay in excess of £34,000 for a six-cylinder C43 or £44,000 or more for an eight-cylinder C63 AMG.

How much does it cost to run a Mercedes C-Class coupe?
Choose a 220d in base Sport trim and the average claimed NEDC fuel consumption is an excellent 68.9mpg, with corresponding CO2 emissions of just 106g/km. The C250d can beat an average 60mpg too, while the petrols inevitably lag behind, with the super-quick AMG C63 S managing just 32.8mpg.
Road tax for the diesels will be cheap, especially for cars registered before the tax changes of April 2017. Cars registered after that date will all be charged at the flat rate, although cars that cost more than £40,000 when new will be subject to an additional yearly surcharge.
Insurance groups are on the high side for all C-Class Coupé models, while servicing costs can be pricey, too. However, Mercedes operates a number of pay-monthly serving plans, allowing you to budget for the cost of servicing for a year or more.
