Mercedes lease 2015 2016

i am interested in 2015 E, C and ML and 2016 E and C 24m/10k leases. do you have mf and residual data. have any idea what a good discount would be on a 2015 ML?

Assuming you want 4MATIC…

C-Class 4MATIC
2015 C 300: 67%, .00119 MF
2016 C 300: 69%, .00154 MF

E-Class 4MATIC
2015 E 350: 47%, .00134 MF
2015 E 250: 49%, .00134 MF
2016 E 350: 65%, .00070 MF
2016 E 250: 67%, .00100 MF

M-Class 4MATIC
2015 ML 350: 61%, .00099 MF

Numbers are national. 24 month, 10,000 mi/year. I’d be surprised if you found a 2015 E-Class; the 2016s were delivered as early as May 2015.

M,

I want to thank you for this help. I have been leasing cars for 20 years, and this is immensely helpful. In addition, I love this site, it is very helpful for anybody who is thinking leasing may be a good option for them.

Since you also seem to be very good with leasing, I wanted to get some advice. I recently contacted a few dealers and have gotten back different money factors for the same car. These happen to be no the same numbers you provided to me. How do i try to negotiate the MF or explain to them that the national offering is lower than what they are quoting me.

I have actually seen a few 2015 Mercedes E350 sedans still on the lots in Northern California. However, based on those lease rate, it doesn’t look like MBFS is giving any incentive to move those units.

Can you give us the current MF and residuals for 2016 E350 RWD sedan for a 24/36 month, 12,000 mile per year?

12,000 mi/year

2016 E350 RWD
24 mo: 65%, .00080 MF
36 mo: 58%, .00080 MF

I’d tell the dealer you have excellent credit and insist on not having a MF mark-up. Tell them another dealer is offering the base MF rate (and a certain selling price), but that you’d much rather deal locally if they can match.

Sometimes a dealer may markup the MF but offer such a huge discount that it ends up being cheaper than any other quote. While we generally do not recommend shopping by payment, such an approach may make sense here.
