Ownership cost

What used Mercedes GLE estate will I get for my budget?

You can find the earliest examples (usually in 300d form) for around £43,000, while a more versatile seven-seater version commands a slight premium and can be found from £45,000.

If you want a six-cylinder GLE, expect to spend at least £46,000. Petrol models are far less common and so you will need to fork out around £55,000 to drive one away.

Car Tax (VED)

All GLEs get hit with an additional yearly luxury car tax bill because every version cost over £40,000 when new, and this applies from the second year of registration until the vehicle is six years old, at which point it reverts back to the flat-rate fee. The plug-in hybrid, however, gets a slight discount because it is classed as an alternative fuel vehicle.

Servicing

Servicing costs will be high, but Mercedes offers a number of servicing plans to help spread the cost via direct debit. It'll still be pricier than comparative servicing costs from Audi or BMW.
