What used Mercedes-Benz E-Class estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Mercedes-Benz E-Class estate?

When it comes to depreciation the diesels are king and, as a result, highly attractive to used buyers. Only consider a petrol model if it's cheap and you don't intend to cover many miles.

The smallest diesel averages 39.8mpg, while the E280 CDI achieves 37.2mpg and the E320 CDI 34.9mpg. The petrol models aren't as efficient, with the E220K at 31.7mpg, the E280 at 29.1mpg, the E350 28.4mpg, the E320 CGI 31.7mpg and the E500 23.9mpg.

Emissions for the diesels range from 188g/km to 215g/kM, but the petrols don't far as well, starting at 212g/km, and rising to 280g/km.

Mercedes dealers are an expensive place to service an old car, and you won't harm the car's value if you use a reliable independent garage.
