Our Mercedes-Benz E-Class Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

The E-class loses about half of its value in the first 3 years, so if you buy new (and many do), be prepared to lose 50% on your investment. If you're OK with something that is slightly used, such as one coming off lease, then that's where the bargains are to be had. Think about an E-class that is 4 or 5 years old, and that has had a kind owner, i.e. not trashed it, and almost irrespective of mileage, you may find yourself an attractive car for the long run. A Mercedes engine will run for 250,000 miles, so if you plan to put a lot of miles on your car, an older E-class may still have a lot of life left in it.

The 2017, 2018 & 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 50% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 E-Class. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 25.21 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2018 & 2019 E-Class model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Own a 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
