Mercedes has become very aggressive and seems they want to get back the lost sales from BMW. Now they are targeting executives by this offer. It came in Times of India dated 24/10/12.

why buy when u can lease!

Thanks for the pics.

I am little confused about section (b) in the Buy vs Lease chart. Can someone explain how depreciation, interest and rentals work and how those numbers are arrived at? Would appreciate some help to decode the numbers.

Also the monthly cash outflow (EMI / rentals) is not too encouraging. Not sure how a rental figure of 62968 is arrived at, but at a difference of 25,000 pm, I can be an 'owner' of a Merc while my total cost of ownership is still the same. 25K might still be high, but this scheme would attract somebody who starts off with a budget of 20L, not one who has a budget of 14-15L :confused:

I saw B class in south Mumbai few days ago, for a second I was thinking why does Skoda Fabia looking different, wait it looks bit stretched. Ohh.. It have merc badge in front. Holy **** this is B class and first thing came in ym mind was yuck.

This view purely personal and only for exteriors.
