Once you have made the decision to purchase a new or pre-owned Mercedes Benz vehicle, your next step is going to be to narrow down your choices to perhaps one or two classes and then the models within that class.
The key in sorting through the Mercedes Benz models is to first understand what you are looking for in a vehicle. This is a company with a wide range of different cars from sporty and more compact vehicles to luxury vehicles, roadsters and even SUVs.
Even if you have a lot of variables in the type of the vehicle you want, some factors are going to be more critical than others to make a comparison. Start with these basic elements first and then look for the optional features and differences that will make one a better choice over another model.
Number of Passengers
The number of passengers typically in your vehicle is going to be a very big factor in narrowing down the various Mercedes Benz models. If you have a family, you may need a four door, four or five passenger vehicle. For a couple or a single person, a more sporty and streamlined two door, two seater sports car may be the perfect match.
Additionally, think about necessary cargo space. Is a small trunk all you need or do you require the larger cargo space found in the SUV or the larger touring sedan models?
One of the most important features on all Mercedes Benz models are the exceptional safety elements that are standard with all vehicles. Airbags for front passengers as well as side, window and knee airbags are available on many models but not on all.
Many of the models offer crash responsive head restraints, specialized seat belts to prevent tension injuries in the event of a crash and all types of braking, anti-skid, and parking assist systems.
The older the model you are considering in a used Mercedes vehicle, the more limited some of the safety features may be.
You will also need to consider your budget. While Mercedes vehicles are more costly than some other manufacturers, they are a vehicle that is built with style, safety and reliability in mind. Keep in mind that Mercedes Benz offers their own financial service which can be very helpful in allowing you to set a repayment plan that works for your budget while you drive off in the car of your dreams.
