Mercedes-Benz A-Class

Mercedes-Benz has launched a new low-rate finance scheme for the A-Class, offering monthly payments from just £249.

The new Agility PCP scheme boasts a typical APR of 5.5 per cent and, if customers choose a base A 180 SE, requires a decidedly affordable £2743 deposit to secure the three-year £249 a month payment plan.

Then, it’s an optional final purchase price of £10,675, or the usual PCP renewal/finance/walk away options.

Mercedes-Benz is clearly confident of the A-Class’ retained values, mind: based on a £20,370 purchase price, that guaranteed minimum future value is more than 52 per cent of list (and key to the low monthly payments).

Other headline finance deal figures include an A 180 Executive SE saloon from £285 a month, an E 220 CDI SE from £399 a month and 0 per cent APR on the smart range…

This means a smart can be bought from just £79 a month!
