Cheapest Mercedes Cars in India in 2024

In India, the term ‘luxury cars’ is synonymous with the brand Mercedes-Benz. The German brand is currently the largest luxury car manufacturer in our country. It holds a strong aspirational value, and the moniker is associated with pride and reliability. Needless to say, the German engineering marvels come at a premium. Mercedes-Benz India’s initiative to locally assemble cars has brought the prices down, still, the badge remains inaccessible to many.

Therefore, the question often asked is, “Which is the cheapest Mercedes-Benz car I can buy in India?” The answer is the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine. However, the car might not fit to everyone’s taste or if the buyer can stretch the financial envelope a bit, they might get more car for their money. Therefore, this blog will tell you all about the top 5 Mercedes-Benz cars in India that cost less than ₹1 crore.

1. Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine

The most affordable Mercedes-Benz car in India is the A-Class Limousine. Its prices start from ₹43.80 lakh, ex-showroom. The price tag in itself is enough to give a perspective on how expensive cars have become. The A-Class limo offers two engine choices: 1.3L turbo-petrol and 2.0L turbo-diesel. The diesel engine comes mated to an 8 DCT, whereas the 1.3L turbo-petrol motor is paired to a 7-speed DCT. Unlike larger saloons of the carmaker, the A-Class Limousine is offered with a front-wheel drive configuration. It is the cheapest Merc on sale in India but comes equipped with a host of features, in addition to ample space.

2. Mercedes-Benz GLA

Mercedes-Benz GLA

Sedans are a dying breed now, and the world has shifted its interest to SUVs. Therefore, we now have SUVs in all shapes and sizes. Similarly, there’s an entry-level SUV in the German luxury carmaker’s line-up – Mercedes-Benz GLA. The entry-level SUV is underpinned by the same architecture as the A-Class Limousine. The engine and gearbox options also are unchanged. However, the GLA does come with the 4Matic all-wheel drive layout. The GLA is a substantially large car for its segment but lacks the road presence of its rivals, namely the BMW X1 and Audi Q3.

3. Mercedes-Benz C-Class Limousine

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Limousine

The executive luxury sedan space has been the most exciting ever since it came into existence. Mercedes-Benz participates in it with the C-Class. No wonder, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the most affordable true-blue German saloon with the pointed star logo. A long hood, stubby tail, and rear-wheel drive layout make it an interesting purchase. The C-Class is on sale at a starting price of ₹58.60 lakh. It comes in a multitude of trim options and with varied engine-gearbox choices. The C300d variant remains our favourite, as it comes with a powerful and torquey turbo-diesel engine, paired with a 48V mild-hybrid system, lending the saloon a tank range of 1,000 km. Those who want a sports car version of the saloon can get their hands on the newly launched Mercedes-AMG C43.

4. Mercedes-Benz E-Class Limousine LWB

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Limousine LWB

The most CEO-friendly car from the automaker is a part of our cheapest Mercedes-Benz cars in India list as well. Why CEO-friendly? Well, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is now sold exclusively in the long-wheelbase guise. It was initially crafted for the Chinese market but upon its introduction in India as a test, the market responded rather warmly to it. The E-Class LWB offers as much space as the larger S-Class at only 40 per cent of its cost. You can get the Mercedes-Benz E-Class LWB with three engine choices — 2.0L turbo-petrol, 2.0L turbo-diesel, and 3.0L turbo-diesel. All engines are paired to a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.

5. Mercedes-Benz GLC

Mercedes-Benz GLC

A product that is exemplary and understated is the Mercedes-Benz GLC. I like to call it a no-nonsense Mercedes-Benz. It gets nearly everything right. The mid-size SUV is spacious, pompous, feature-loaded, and practical. There’s enough to keep you happy with the feel-good factor. Also, the SUV credentials make it a rugged performer on broken and slippery roads. The GLC is on sale with just two engine choices — 2.0L turbo-petrol and 2.0L turbo-diesel. The transmission is a 9-speed torque converter unit, channelling power to all four wheels of the SUV with Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic system.

The idea of buying a Mercedes-Benz and experiencing the sheer driving pleasure of the pointed star logo doesn’t require spending a fortune. There are some rather accessible cars in their portfolio that deliver the flavour that a Mercedes-Benz is famous for. Also, entry-level Mercedes-Benz cars have come a long way and are now loaded to the gills. Lastly, even the cheapest Mercedes-Benz doesn’t feel cheap inside or out.
