Hello,
For negotiating a new lease, I believe this thread seems to suggest aiming for a 5-6% dealer discount off configured MSRP in addition to factory incentives. I'm wondering if it's worth using sites like Unhaggle, Car Cost Canada, APA, etc. to find the dealer invoice price and then negotiating based on dealer profit margin instead?
Thanks!
If you read thru most of this thread in the last month or so pages, mb dealers usually don’t care much about unhaggle info. The best strategy is to shop around for the best discount in your region to see who would like to play ball with you.

no one cares about unhaggle info. Unhaggle is a scam, but clueless people think it works.

What can I get in the range of $400-$500 /month? Something with a little bit more space than a regular sedan..

at least 8% off, for Unhaggle invoice price, it's 8% off base msrp, 14% off on package and options
plus factory/dealership incentive, 1% rate reduction, 3 months payment waived
heard even at Unhaggle invoice price, there is still a room for dealership profit.
Last time I had a hard time getting almost 7% and that was on MSRP and package add ons. I did get the 3 months waived last time. Do you mind saying which dealership will be willing to do something like this? Should I just go to unhaggle?

Not even sure of a GLA is more spacious than a C-Class
People just assume a Crossover is more spacious or can fit more stuff in, not always true,

+1 GLA is pretty tight in space inside even tho it looks big outside. C-class has more space.

@m5love
for a slightly used demo (say <1000 km) and dealer willing to waive the freight/pdi + you still get 6% dealer side discount + $2,000 Jan credit + $500 auto show credit ...

say your build of a B250 4matic - msrp $40,000
$0 down
39 months
18,000km per year

Projected monthly - $465 + taxes = OTR

If brand new, then you are looking at $530 + taxes = OTR (same parameters)

Even though GLA is smaller. I think it’s more practical than a C. C is better to drive and feels much more premium.

If practical is priority, don't get a GLA neither. Get a CRV, best bang for the buck. Space and reasonable priced. I wouldn't call GLA pratical or spacious, even the GLC is not really spacious.

Only speaking between GLA and a C. Besides Honda leases are expensive.

was at the dealer yesterday doing servicing and saw 2 A250 in the showroom. The interior space seems to be similar to the B class and interior finishes really do need a nicer upgrade IMO, otherwise, it would feel too much plastic all over.
