Our familiar used car market caters for all with a wide selection of quality cars. Some drivers prefer small economical motors for all-round family use while others like something prestigious and long-legged for those distant motorway cruises. Mercedes-Benz is a brand that caters for all across the motoring spectrum from the reliable, frugal and compact A-Class through to the mighty supercar that is the AMG One, with all manner of saloons, hatchbacks, 4x4's and hybrids in between. That's why vehicles sporting the famous three-pointed star are so popular with our customers here at eCars247.
There was a time, way back in the 19th Century when motor cars were classed by the authorities as being the same as the steam engines that preceded them and for which laws had been created because they were “large, cumbersome and often dangerous”. The motor car as we know it today was initially tarred with the same brush as other horseless carriages, encountering considerable resistance in the early days. Thankfully our Victorian ancestors got over it fairly quickly when they found out how convenient cars were and pretty soon everyone wanted to become 'automobilists'.
When Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz, who had been working on the same petrol-engined car idea separately and independently of each other got together they created the empire we know today. In the 20th Century, Mercedes-Benz cars were considered aspirational. With a Merc on the drive it was considered that the owner had arrived, socially speaking; he was clearly at the top of his game and membership of the local golf club was assured.
Fortunately the motor industry is much more democratic these days and pretensions in the matter of car ownership are a thing of the past. Almost regardless of budget, there is a premium quality car for everyone. This is largely due to a vibrant and forward thinking used car market that is utilising to the full the benefits of the internet, to the point of even arranging home deliveries.
Furthermore, car manufacturers are making the most of new ways of promoting their wares whilst also working towards cleaner and greener automotive options.
Once traditionally the home of luxurious and prestigious saloons and estates, the Mercedes-Benz company now firmly has a foothold in the mainstream market, all the time retaining that ethos of quality with modern, well designed and often leather-lined interiors, the latest technology, a wide choice of frugal or powerful engines and of course sleek looks.
Why Buy A Used Car
Car buyers today are a canny lot and most fully understand the meaning of depreciation. Although it is a great feeling, it's a fact of life that buying a brand new car means significant first-year value depreciation. This means that purchasing a used car, be it a Mercedes-Benz or any other preference, just makes financial sense. In addition, car purchase it made simpler and more convenient thanks to a competitive market for financing options.
Don't forget, our constantly changing stock means that there will often be Mercedes-Benz models available. If the German brand isn't on the wish list then there's plenty more to choose from. Modern manufacturing techniques means that all cars these days are well built and packing the latest safety technology. It's a New Year and a new decade; why not consider a change of car too?
