Mercedes Grille

Based on the models we’ve included above, the cheapest Mercedes model for an MOT is the CLA. At £39.85, it’s the only car on the list that costs less than £40 - albeit by 15 pence. 

This subcompact executive car has been manufactured since 2013 and is known for being the sportiest A-Class derivative. As with all Mercedes cars, the interior is stylish and laden with exciting tech.

Next up for affordability is the E-Class, costing £40.05. Mercedes’ range of executive cars, though typically more expensive than rivals (think Audi A6 and BMW 5), are stylish and efficient enough to successfully compete.

The latest E-Class comes in four different body styles: saloon, estate, coupe and convertible. And, if you’re a fan of infotainment systems, you’ll be pleased to know that the E-Class comes with the manufacturer’s latest MBUX system as standard.

The most expensive Mercedes model for an MOT is the S-Class (pictured below), which costs £43.02. Incredibly, the S-Class -  a series of full-size luxury sedans - has been around since 1972. Few cars manage to maintain popularity over such a long period, so this attests to the enduring quality of this amazing model.

Mercedes S Class

After the S-Class, the next most expensive model is the GLC at £42.16. This mid-size prestige SUV comes with a wide range of engine options. It’s expensive to buy and expensive to maintain, but if luxury and space are what you’re after, this is the car for you.
