Best used Mercedes

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most prestigious car manufacturers in the world, and with good reason. Its reputation for producing long-lasting cars that combine upmarket interiors with desirable technology and durable engineering precedes it, and in recent years it has also developed a name for spacious estates, stylish convertibles and rakish coupΓ©s.

Of course, not everyone can afford a new Mercedes, but such is the popularity of its cars – not to mention the wide variety of models on offer – that there’s now something out there for everyone. But which is best for you?

To help you work that out, whatever your budget may be, we’ve come up with our top three Mercedes for Β£2000, Β£5000, Β£10,000 and Β£25,000. Read on to find out which used models we chose.

Best used Mercedes-Benzes for Β£25,000

3. SL-Class (2002-2012)

The SL is one of the most glamorous convertibles on the planet, and the fact you can buy a relatively new example for less than Β£25,000 makes it something of a bargain, too. You get a smooth, comfortable ride, a plush interior filled with high-quality materials, and a choice of lusty engines to power you along. And, of course, a welter of equipment – just as you’d expect from a high-end drop-top.

We found: 2011 SL 350, 25,000 miles, Β£22,500

2. CLS (2010-present)

The CLS's swooping lines earn it admiring glances from almost all who spot it, and yet it tends to fall in value more quickly than its more conventional saloon stablemates. That makes it a great deal as a used buy; it also has fine handling, punchy engines and, if you can find one with the optional air suspension, a wonderfully smooth ride.

We found: 2014 CLS 350 CDI AMG Sport, 19,500 miles, Β£24,995

1. E-Class Estate (2010-2016)

Few cars can beat the vastness of the E-Class Estate’s boot, and fewer still can combine such space and practicality with the air of luxury and quality that the Mercedes offers. It’s one of the most comfortable estates around, it’s well equipped, and as it’s based on a luxury car, you get to move those hefty loads around in plush surroundings.

We found: 2015 E220 CDI SE, 22,000 miles, Β£21,950
