Mercedes-Benz ongoing commitment to innovation, quality and sustainability in the fleet industry has been recognised at the 2014 Fleet World Honours, with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class recognised as the year’s Best Executive Car and the S-Class named the Best Luxury Car.
Steve Moody, Editor of Fleet World magazine, explained the decision of the judges: “The E-Class got a major facelift last year that included adding a huge amount of clever safety kit as standard and improving quality all round. The hybrid diesel is the best hybrid on the market and the traditional diesels are now extremely competitive too.”
Referring to the S-Class, Steve added: “The S-Class is ubiquitous, and the new model is only set to make it more so. Mercedes just understands the luxury market perfectly, so you get unmatched levels of refinement comfort and luxury.”
Nick Andrews, Head of Fleet for Mercedes-Benz Cars, was delighted with the results. “We’ve worked hard to rationalise the E-Class range so that it works for our fleet customers and are delighted that the panel at Fleet World recognise this. The S-Class has long been recognised as a benchmark for luxury saloons and we are thrilled that Fleet World agrees with us on that.”
