The CLC stands up as it's own car more than the old C-Class Sports Coupe did. A more glamorous rival to the BMW 1-Series and VW Golf. More expensive new than either, the diesel models hold their value well but petrols have soft prices.
The CLC drives more like an Audi than a Mercedes ? light steering, lots of power, dynamic yet very smooth. The CLC is more stylish than rivals, even if it isn't more practical.
Going diesel will add around £1000 on a 2 year old CLC. This balances out the 13MPG fuel advantage of the diesel car. Especially if you combine this with the higher servicing costs of the diesel. Petrol models tend to have much lower mileages.
We would strongly advise going for a 180K petrol models in SE spec. Sport cars look great but the wheels prone to damage - you will also pay £300/500 more. The insurance on the petrol car is only 1 group higher.
Pay around £15,000 for a 2 years old 180K with around 30,000 miles on the clock. If you must buy a diesel car then add £1000 to that price and expect a comparative or slightly higher mileage.
Around 3 years with its first MOT is complete is a good time to buy. Petrol models should depreciate at around 15/20% in that year.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Mercedes Clc Class you would aim to buy a 6 year old and you can keep it for some time before needing to worry about a big drop in value.
Diesel Mercedes Clc Class cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Diesel Mercedes Clc Class cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Diesel Mercedes Clc Class cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
