Why are our prices much better than a typical dealership?
  • All our cars are priced correctly using a sophisticated algorithm that takes into account market data, and the condition of the car.
  • We have much fewer costs than a dealership.
  • What you see here is what you will pay. We don't add on a whole bunch of extra fees.
Certiride price:

R179 900

All inclusive. No extra fees.

Typical dealership price:
R239 000 + extra fees (e.g. "on the road cost")
You save with Certiride:
At least R59 000. But, probably a lot more.

I used this car for work purposes - I spent quite a bit of time on the road. I love the immediate acceleration and just how it drives in general. It's also very comfortable - quiet, and with all the gadgets you would want. I already own a couple of cars, so am looking to economise a bit.

Expert written review:


Though it's the company's entry-level model, the 2013 C-Class is very much a Mercedes-Benz. That means it offers that feeling of quality and solidity throughout that define the marque, not to mention a ride and handling balance that should strike most folks as just right.
