- Up to £2,000 towards a new Mercedes
- Trade in your old diesel car
- BMW recently announced a similar scheme
Mercedes matches BMW diesel trade-in offer
Up to £2,000 towards the cost of a new Mercedes when you trade-in your old diesel car.
In addition to other special offers, the Mercedes bonus can be claimed whatever make or model of car you would like to trade-in. However, as ever, there are a few caveats.
The car you are trading in must have a diesel engine, that complies with Euro 1-4 emissions standards. So, if you have a Mercedes built between 1992 and 2010, it is likely to count.
Mercedes wants to encourage people to upgrade to Euro 6-compliant models, which have much cleaner emissions.
The car you are trading in will also need a valid MOT certificate.
BMW says you must have owned the diesel car for at least a year, but Mercedes is only asking for six months.
If you do have a car that fits the bill, you will be able to get £2,000 towards any diesel Euro 6 or plug-in hybrid Mercedes, or £1,000 for a Smart electric drive model.
The scheme will run until the end of 2017 (the same length of time as BMW), and can be used in conjunction with other Mercedes offers.
