What should I be paying?
Merc claims anything from 45.6mpg for the 220d to 44.8mpg on the 250d. A quick blast in the lower powered car came up a little short of that figure (simply because you have to stress the engine that much more), but the 250d was near enough on the money.
It’s also a Mercedes, so we’re guessing residual values will be higher than say, a VW Caravelle or other rivals from Ford or the French.
But, and as we mentioned before, the price of admission is quite high. Bear that in mind.
