The Mercedes-Benz logo is iconic now, you could show it to almost anyone and there would be a good chance they recognize it straight away. In good company when it comes to huge German car manufacturers, Mercedes was first established in 1926, and has gone on to become one of the leading brands in the automotive industry.
Known for greatly designed vehicles with superbly engineered engines to match, Mercedes have gained a reputation over the years for having some of the best and most extensive inspection and testing processes too. This has helped them gain the trust they have today from such a wide range of consumers.
Creative landmarks such as introducing the world’s first Anti-Lock braking system in 1978, as well as the world’s first driver’s and passenger’s airbag in 1988, secured their reputation as an industry innovator too.

The smallest car to wear a Mercedes badge, the first- and second-generation A-Classes never really captured buyers' imaginations, despite their innovative design and construction. The A-Class wouldn't be a success for Mercedes until the much more conventional third-generation model arrived in 2012. A big improvement over the first iteration, the A-Class Mk2 featured a spacious cabin, excellent build quality and brilliant diesel engines, so the baby Merc lived up to the promise of the three-pointed star. After that it's more of a mixed bag, but with the car providing the cabin space of an E-Class in a car little longer than a Mini, while the A-Class isn't big, it is clever.
The B-Class is a spacious family hatch with that famed Mercedes build quality, a healthy dose of practicality and a strong image, yet many buyers were unaware of this overgrown A-Class. Of those who knew about it, many couldn't afford it. Easier to recommend used than new, the B-Class has the silhouette of an MPV, but doesn't offer that level of versatility. So while it's not an alternative to established MPVs, think of it as a posh family hatch at keen prices, and you won't go far wrong.
Tourers come no grander than here, with this stylish coupe from Stuttgart. Packed with tech to make every journey as comfortable as possible, the CL is fast, refined, comfortable and amazing value on the used market. Even better, running costs can be a lot lower than you might expect, thanks to decent reliability and economy; CL500 owners can easily get 25mpg. But the first thing that goes wrong could cost you plenty, even though a decent independent specialist. Buy very carefully.
Until the CLS arrived, if you wanted a luxury saloon and a sporting coupé, you had to buy one of each. But since its debut, the CLS has allowed well-heeled buyers to enjoy the best of both worlds - a luxurious four-seater, four-door saloon with superb coupé-like styling. Great to drive, beautifully built and truly luxurious, the CLS makes a great long-distance cruiser.
For many, a Mercedes represents the pinnacle of automotive engineering and prestige, and when you look at an E-Class it's easy to see why. Beautifully built, brilliantly engineered and bristling with safety tech, the Mercedes E-Class is a cut above most of its rivals. With the fourth-generation edition, codenamed W212 by Mercedes, the German company excelled itself with a range of highly desirable saloons, estates, coupes and cabriolets. Expensive when new, these cars aren't as exclusive as you might think and as a result they can represent excellent value as a used buy - but while the Merc's efficient engines can be more parsimonious than you might think, running costs can still be high. Still, sometimes it's worth making sacrifices.
Unless you can afford to buy something seriously costly, you'll struggle to find a car that says you've arrived quite like a Mercedes does. These saloons and estates may be towards the lower end of the Mercedes price lists, but those classy looks and that three-pointed star above the classic Mercedes grille will still impress a lot of people. The reputation is deserved too, because while you pay for the privilege, the C-Class is good to drive, superbly built and incredibly usable thanks to the spacious cabin. If you want economy there are frugal petrol and diesel engines, or if your focus is on performance the 457bhp C63 AMG should fit the bill - with plenty of choice in between. So while the C-Class isn't the cheapest used car option think of it as being reassuringly expensive.
When it comes to relatively attainable premium cars, nothing can top a Mercedes. Generally seen as a cut above posh rivals, that three-pointed star is very appealing, and when a car looks this good it's easy to see why. But the CLK was introduced when Mercedes was at its lowest, and it's a model that was frequently not as well built as it should have been. So while it's highly desirable in many ways, it can also be frustrating to own - which is why you need to buy with caution.
Prestige comes no more highly regarded than with a Mercedes; perceived as a cut above rivals Audi, BMW, Jaguar and Lexus, the E-Class sums up everything that's great about the world's oldest car maker. Comfortable, well-equipped, safe and practical, the E-Class saloon makes a superb family car. Opt for one of the amazingly capacious estates and you get all this plus one of the biggest load bays available anywhere.
