Four Mercedes-Benz models have the lowest depreciation in their segment, and can justifiably call themselves the “Value retention champions 2010″ – the E, C, S and R-Class. These are the findings of analyses carried out each year by the Saarbrücken-based market research institute Bà¤hr & Fess Forecast on behalf of the motoring magazine “Auto Bild”. Mercedes-Benz vehicles are therefore generally have the highest value retention, and offer a significant economic advantage.
According to the residual value forecasts of the market researchers, the new E-Class will be the saloon with the highest resale value of all large coupes when it is four years old. The E 250 CDI will still command 55.5 percent of its current new value.
