I think $299 is a very logical advertised point for Mercedes. May be at year end or whenever the sales of CLA250 start to slow.still, with a MSRP of 30K and a residual value typical of benzes, i'm almost certain leases wil start at $299 a month. when the c-class lease starts at $349 a month there's no way that people are going to pay equal or more for a car with lower specs.
If im told the CLA 250 MSRP 36k is going to cost me 600 over the next 36 months, Ill tell them to go see who hes gotta go see and walk away. At that point I rather get the 328xi fully loaded for 475 (w/ tax, Ive already talked to my leasing guy).Bottom line. None of this will apply to the CLA. They will tell you the $36000 car will lease for $700 a month. And they will work the payment down from there.
When they reach $599 a month, you think you just beat a great deal out of these guys but in fact you just got screwed.
Minimum drive off ( no cap reduction ), 36 month lease, $500 discount, 10k per year 63% residual value and 0.00180 money factor = $541 + tax. ( on a 41225 CLA .)If im told the CLA 250 MSRP 36k is going to cost me 600 over the next 36 months, Ill tell them to go see who hes gotta go see and walk away.

Please give us more detail on the $455/month number they came up withso got my quote.
ordered my cla months ago.
total sticker is about 38k.
lease.... a ridiculous 455 per month..
yeah..fully loaded c, with a much greater sticker.. is under 4..
both leases zero down, only tax and title. don't pay interest on your tax people. and in NY.
it baffles me that the marketing strategy is entry level, inexpensive mb.. so, wouldn't they end up selling more classes this way? whats the point.
and the cla is not available in 4wd till 2014.. c class I can get 4wd.. bigger engine. way more bang for my buck. 455 for a 38k car. no way 400 would be fair. even 425 because its new.
The dealer is good with me too, I have sold them half a dozen cars this year.. so if your reading this, you better make me a much better deal, you know who!
or im getting a range rover
and so will all my people when their lease is up! lol make it happen.
Don't take this the wrong way but I'm thinking you're on the wrong forum. You've now posted three times (four if you count the two I merged in this thread). In your first posts you said the CLA was 'cheap' and not as good as the C. You're entitled to your opinion but now you're asking whether the C or E is better? I'm not a betting man but if I were I'd bet that a C or E class forum might have more detailed information on those models.Hello,
With all the good things said about the new C-class 2014 I wonder if it is still worth buying a E-class ?
Actually I am thinking that when the new C-class 2014 will be launched the standard e-class model will be improved to keep its rank.
What do you think ? In case I decide to buy a E-class should I wait that they launch the new C-class to compare ?
