Consider Your Vehicle Needs
Before you purchase a Mercedes-Benz, your first step should be to consider your needs in a vehicle. To do so, you can ask yourself some questions about what you want in your next vehicle and, most importantly, what you need in your next car.
Here are a few questions you can ask yourself:
- What size vehicle works best for me? Do I need more seats or more cargo space?
- Which features are non-negotiable, comfort or technological features?
- What kind of performance am I looking for, daily driving or performance-tuned capabilities?
- Do I require a full-fledged driver-assistance suite?
By asking yourselves these questions, you can gain some direction as to which Mercedes-Benz you should choose.

Your next step is to begin doing your research! Mercedes-Benz has several vehicles in its lineup, from compact and sport-tuned sedans to spacious, family-sized SUVs.

In just a few clicks, you’ll be that much closer to finding your perfect Mercedes-Benz.
Test Drive Your Favorite Mercedes-Benz
Seeing your favorite options virtually is one thing—test driving them is another! To solidify your decision, set up a test drive through our dealership. This is a great way to test the car’s operation and handling. You can also explore the cabin, unveil its unique features, and get a better idea of how the vehicle will fit into your lifestyle.
If you’re after a family-friendly model, bring the family along to see what they think. The same applies, if you’re shopping for your business. Your co-workers or your business partners can get in on the action too.
Discover Your Budget
This is an interchangeable step in your car-buying journey. You can add it to the beginning of the process or after shopping for a few models. Either way, setting your budget is a very important step!
To begin, you’ll want to gather vital financial information and crunch some numbers by using a payment calculator. Doing so will help you find out your buying power, what you’re comfortable with budget-wise, and what your monthly payments may look like.
Beyond crunching the numbers, you can also take care of a few other financial steps of your car-buying journey from the comfort of your home. First, fill out our finance application to pre-qualify. Then, you can use our Value Your Trade tool to find out how much your current vehicle is worth and thus, how much you can put down for your purchase!
