How To Get A Mercedes-Benz On A Budget

Mercedes-Benz CLA

While the Mercedes-Benz brand is typically associated with luxury, the automobile giant has recently trained its focus on providing an affordable vehicle for the younger crowd. Every Mercedes does not have to be an E-Class or Gullwing. With the new CLA250 compact sedan, the Mercedes experience is now available to those who are on a stricter budget.

It is the first front drive car that has been manufactured by Mercedes mainly for an American release, although they have already sold front drive cars in other North American territories. Mercedes aims to reach out to every niche and the CLA250 compact sedan is a great option, even for those who are not exactly well off.

If you want to save more or get a Mercedes-Benz on a budget, you can always head on to Discountrue and look for Target coupons and promo codes that are sure to provide you with amazing prices on all the accessories and anything else you may need during your automotive adventure. The famous three-pointed star on the prow is still present, the same as it would be for the higher-end models, giving the CLA250 a classic look.

The great information is, this vehicle can be owned for mere $30,875. While most are probably familiar with the $29,900 price tag that Mercedes has been advertising, the amount does not include the cost of delivery, which adds an extra $975 to the total.  However, even with the delivery surcharge, the CLA is the least expensive Mercedes currently available in America, providing a budget option for those who wish to combine their taste for the finer things with a more frugal nature.

It comes with its own form of dramatic illumination, as the vehicle is equipped with LED tail lamps, and Bi-Xenon head lamps. These are both optional, however.

The famous three-point star can even be lit up, as well. The grille of the vehicle has also been opulently designed, made to look like a twinkling wall of sorts. Some consumers might even say that it reminds them of Las Vegas.

The style of the vehicle has become so influential within the auto industry that even Toyota is attempting to mimic the CLA design with their new Avalon model.

These flourishes make for an inexpensive vehicle that is not for the fuddy duddies of the world. The car’s non-Germanic design makes sense too, since the CLA250 compact sedan is not actually assembled in Germany, as most Mercedes are, but Kecskemet, Hungary.

If you are looking to make a Mercedes purchase, and you need to remain within a certain budget, the search is finally over. The CLA250 compact sedan provides drivers with the Mercedes-Benz experience, at a price that everyone can afford. The company’s long term commitment to excellence and their ability to create vehicles for every driving niche is certainly commendable.
