Best ways to finance a Mercedes car purchase in the UK

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most prestigious and sought-after car brands in the world. Known for its luxury, performance, safety, and reliability, Mercedes offers a range of models to suit different tastes and needs. Whether you are looking for a compact hatchback, a sleek sedan, a spacious SUV, or a sporty coupe, Mercedes has something for you.

However, buying a Mercedes is not a cheap affair. The upfront cost of a new or used Mercedes can be quite high, and you also have to consider the depreciation, maintenance, and insurance costs that come with owning such a premium vehicle. That’s why many people opt for financing their Mercedes instead of paying cash.

But how do you finance a Mercedes in the UK? What are the different options available, and how do they compare? How do you find the best deal for your needs and circumstances? And what are the popular types of Mercedes that you can buy on finance?

The Different Finance Options Available for a Mercedes

If you want to buy a Mercedes in the UK, you have several finance options to choose from. Each option has its own features, advantages, and disadvantages. Depending on your personal and financial circumstances. In this section, we will explain the main differences between the different types of finance available for buying a Mercedes in the UK, such as:

Asset Finance

Asset finance is a form of leasing, where you pay a monthly fee to use the Mercedes, but you do not own it. The monthly fee is based on the depreciation of the Mercedes over the lease term, and the residual value at the end of the lease. The residual value is the estimated value of the Mercedes at the end of the lease, which is agreed upon at the start of the contract.

The advantage of asset finance is that you can enjoy driving a new Mercedes without having to pay the full purchase price upfront. You also have lower monthly payments than other finance options, as you are only paying for the depreciation of the Mercedes.

At the end of the lease, you have three options, you can either:

Hire Purchase

Hire purchase is a form of credit, where you pay a deposit and then monthly instalments to buy the Mercedes over a fixed period of time. The monthly instalments include both the principal and the interest, and the interest rate is usually fixed. The Mercedes is the security for the loan, which means that if you fail to make the payments, the lender can repossess the Mercedes.

The advantage of hire purchase is that you can own the Mercedes at the end of the contract, and you can choose the deposit and the duration of the contract to suit your budget. You also have the option to settle the loan early, by paying the outstanding balance and a small fee. The disadvantage is that you have to pay interest on the loan, and you do not own the Mercedes until you make the final payment.

The final payment is usually the same as the monthly instalment, plus a £10 option to purchase fee. This fee is a legal requirement, and it transfers the ownership of the Mercedes from the lender to you.

Hire Purchase with Balloon Payment

Hire purchase with balloon payment is similar to hire purchase, but with a twist. Instead of paying equal monthly instalments, you pay lower monthly instalments and a larger final payment, known as the balloon payment. The balloon payment is usually 25% to 50% of the purchase price of the Mercedes, and it is agreed upon at the start of the contract.

The advantage of hire purchase with balloon payment is that you can have lower monthly payments than hire purchase, and still own the Mercedes at the end of the contract. You also have the option to refinance the balloon payment, or trade in the Mercedes for a new one. The disadvantage is that you have to pay more interest than hire purchase, and you have to save up for the balloon payment or find another source of finance.

The balloon payment is usually the same as the agreed percentage of the purchase price, plus a £10 option to purchase fee. This fee is a legal requirement, and it transfers the ownership of the Mercedes from the lender to you.

Balanced Payments

Balanced payments is a credit option, where you pay a deposit and monthly instalments, including principal and variable interest, to buy the Mercedes over a fixed term. You can own the Mercedes at the end of the contract, and benefit from low interest rates when the base rate is low.

You can also settle the loan early, by paying the balance and a fee. The drawback is that you have to pay variable interest, and may have higher payments when the base rate is high. The final payment is the same as the monthly instalment, and there is no fee.

Contract Purchase

Contract purchase is a leasing option, where you pay a deposit and monthly instalments, based on the depreciation and the GFV of the Mercedes. You do not own the Mercedes, but you can buy it for the GFV, return it, or part-exchange it at the end of the contract. Contract purchase has lower monthly payments and less upfront cost than other finance options, but no equity and possible extra charges for exceeding mileage limit, or any damage or wear and tear.

At the end of the contract, you have three options: you can either buy the Mercedes for the GFV, return it to the lender and walk away, or part-exchange it for a new one or use any equity as a deposit.

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

PCP is a flexible leasing option, where you pay an initial payment and lower monthly instalments, based on the depreciation and the GFV of the Mercedes. You can own, return, or part-exchange the Mercedes at the end of the contract, by paying, avoiding, or using the GFV as a deposit. PCP has lower monthly payments and more options than contract purchase, but higher interest and a large final payment.

Mercedes Best Finance Options - Comparisons

To help you compare the different options, we have prepared a table that shows the key criteria of each option, such as total cost, deposit, duration, and final payment. You can use this table as a reference, but remember that the actual figures may vary depending on the lender, the model, and your credit score.

As you can see, each option has its pros and cons, and the best one for you will depend on your preferences and goals. For example, if you want to own the Mercedes at the end of the term, you might prefer hire purchase or balanced payments. 

If you want to have lower monthly payments, you might prefer hire purchase with balloon payment or PCP. If you want to have more flexibility at the end of the term, you might prefer contract purchase or PCP.

What Happens at the End of an Asset Finance Plan?

Asset finance is a type of finance that allows you to use the Mercedes as an asset for your business, while paying a fixed monthly fee to the lender. Asset finance can be either a finance lease or an operating lease, depending on whether you want to own the Mercedes at the end of the term or return it to the lender.

At the end of an asset finance plan, you have different options depending on the type of lease you have chosen. Here are the possible scenarios:

The option that you choose will depend on your preferences and circumstances. For example, if you want to own the Mercedes at the end of the term, you might prefer a finance lease. If you want to have a newer and more efficient Mercedes, you might prefer an operating lease.
