What used Mercedes-Benz GLC estate will I get for my budget?
Prices for a good GLC with an average mileage for the year and a full service history start at around £26,000, at the time of writing, with 2016 cars rising to about £30,000. Spend between £30,000 and £35,000 and you’ll find V6 versions and 2017 cars from franchised dealers.
How much does it cost to run a Mercedes-Benz GLC estate?
Both versions of the 2.1-litre diesel engine have the same claimed average fuel consumption figure at 56.5mpg. The V6 350d is inevitably not a match for that, while the petrol-powered GLC 43 4Matic claims a mere 34mpg, and the 63 and 63 S twin-turbocharged V8 models manage even less. The 2.1-litre 220d and 250d will be cheap to tax, especially if they were registered before April 2017, whereas the 350d and GLC 43 and 63 models cost more than £40,000 new and will therefore attract a surcharge in tax if registered after that date.
Insurance groups range from a reasonable 27 up to a high 43 for the GLC 63 and 63 S.
Mercedes operates a number of servicing plans, with prices starting from around £27 per month, and this guarantees the price of parts and labour for up to three services.
