2016 E350 Price Drop?

Since 2017 E Class comes with new styling, I am wondering if dealer will give out big discount on the 2016 E class. Any thought?

Also, anyone considering the new 2017 Jaguar F-Pace?

Thanks.

Dealers in my area offer 25% discount for E400. I think a similar can be taken for E350 as well. You can wait until actually MY 2017 will arrive to get even better discount. Honestly I do not believe the redesigned version so dramatically better than previous one. I wish I wasn't in the time constraint and could wait for 3-4 months to get a good price for E

Do you mean one with 65K MSRP will be sold for $48,750? That's 16K off!!!

All I have read tells me the new E is much like S but smaller. If it is also rattle free it is the car to buy. Previous year models will sell for big discounts as by my dealer the new E is very similarly priced as 2016.

Not bad, but back in that time frame, CA dealers were easily offering $12k off E350's in stock without needing to do much negotiations. I know a few folks that got $15k off well loaded E350's.

The OP asked about discounts, so it's a relevant data point. And as you noted, no negotian was needed to get that price here in MA either. It was in response to a web inquiry and emailed quote. Net result, a pre-face lift 2013 was not all that much less than a face lifted 2014.

@OP - From what I've read here over the last few years, you shouldn't expect to save a ton on a '16 vs a '17 (unless you consider $4k a ton on a $54k+ car that has changed a bunch over model years).

If there is no difference in price other than a few $k I would not even think anything else than a 2017 E213. It is a whole new car compared to E212. No comparison, Period!

In the Atlanta area I've heard $5K+ discounts to start on 2016 E350 sedans. Which means they COULD hypothetically creep up to around $10K just to get them to move.

A few months ago we were shopping for a GLK for the wife, this was shortly after GLC was released. Dealers in CA were not willing to discount the GLK (even though it was discontinued and replaced by the GLC) more than the usual $6k to $7k.

So I'd imagine the W212 E will be similar later this summer/fall when the new W213 E comes out. Dealers are probably just going to keep doing the $12k or so discounts to get rid of whatever inventory is left.

As to if you should go for the 2017.... Typically first model year of a car will have some bugs to be worked out. If you can deal with that, then get the 2017, if not, then get the 2016 which in its final year should have majority of the bugs worked out.

There probably won't be a big discount on the 2017 for the first couple of months, depending on how well it sells (or not) it may get to the W212 level of discounts later on in the year or maybe a few years later. The 2016 will have greater discount vs 2017, but 2016 will also depreciate more vs 2017 as it'll be one model year older.

but for all the new safety features of the W213, it may be worth it for you. It's personal preference.

After I posted that yesterday I went to the dealership and got myself one. I got 15% off MSRP. Same monthly lease rate for $61k sticker E class as $44k sticker GLC.

Sweet!
Let's keep this post updated for all the deal we get.

I got the same email from Keyes European on 2015 E400 for 25% discount. Seems quite hefty even for a premium model.

I wish be on market now. This discount brings E400 in a price range of E350. Considering that E400 better equipped with leather, it is awesome deal. Why I never was lucky and always bought Mercedes at time almost zero discount was available?

Not sure how you can make this statement when no one on this forum has driven a W213 - E300 ? This 4 cylinder 2017 E is the only model that will be available @ the time of introduction to the North American market. It is highly unlikely that this car will perform anywhere close to a W212-E350 or E400.

As for purchasing a 2017 W213, a prudent buyer would wait 1-2 years after the start of production, thereby allowing MB time to correct the inevitable bugs that plague early production models, e.g. 2015-2016 W205.

E 350
The interiors of this new car look fabulous at least. But I'm not sold on the mellowed feminine exterior.
The 4 cylinder will probably sound like the current engine in W205, coarse and noisy, with adequate power but nowhere near the E400.
You are right that this is pure guess since no one has driven it, but the educated guesses from forum members have been proven right many times.

Out here in the Midwest, discounts are definitely not as aggressive as in the high-volume LA area. The most interesting W212 that I could find at my local dealer was an untitled former loaner E400 sedan that's fully loaded.

Other than that E400, it was all just the standard E350s with P1/lighting/lane packages and MSRP ~$65k. None stood out as interesting, but I'll post again when they send me a detailed quote for one.

Loaner quote:

Model: 2016 E400W4
Mileage: 3,300
MSRP: $74,625
Price: $64,000
Discount: 14.24%
Term: 36/12k
MF: 0.00148/3.55% (base MBFS rate - didn't have to ask, these guys are straightforward)
RV: 60% (would be 61% for 10k, 58% for 15k)
Startups: $1,113.74 + 1st month
Monthly inc. tax: $771.31
Total (w/tax+fees): $28,880.90

w/one-pay
MF: 0.00069/1.66% (poss. marked up, but can't be by much)
(Equiv. monthly w/tax: $679.07)
Total (w/tax+fees): $25,560.10

I didn't negotiate during this visit. Based on my last deal with them, I'm guessing they might be willing to drop another $2-3k (~17% total discount). Even then, with the 3k miles already on it, it's not exactly a steal.

Still, the W212 is the model to get right now. By comparison, I got a slightly higher (~$30) monthly payment quote on a $55k GLC300W4 for 36/12k with fleet discount.


PS: They're also selling an untitled, no-mileage 2015 E63S for $18k off (MSRP $108k). Sadly, no leasing on that one. That's probably the best price deal of the bunch, but I don't want to deal with residuals and selling a W212 after the W213 is out.

The only reason why I own my W211 is because of this forum. You guys let me know of the great prices in 2009, when the W212 came out, so I bought a 2009. If there's a good deal in a W212 because the W213 has already come out, I'm in.

In 2009, we were in the midst of Cash for Clunkers and the Camrys and Accords were going for full sticker. Glad to get a good price on my W211.

This topic post just led me to see if there are still GLKs around. Yup, there still out there. Maybe I'll just pick up one of those if prices are good for them. I buy cars and hold on to them, so buying in the last model year of a design is what I do, to get cars which hopefully have a lot of the issues worked out. If I leased, I'd look for new model designs.

I actually enjoyed your video better than the marketing video from MB. I didn't really care for the outside when I first viewed it, but I like the presentation you've given it. Well done and keep 'em coming. Thank you!
