Mercedes-Benz C-Class Is Crowned Fleet Car Of The Year

Written by Ellie

Thanks to its low whole life costs, practicality and stylish good looks, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been given the Fleet Car of the Year title at this year’s Association of Fleet Car Operator’s (ACFO) awards.

The C-Class is available in four different body styles (saloon, estate, coupé, cabriolet). It is technically advanced, aerodynamically efficient and boasts lightweight aluminium construction, underpinned by class-leading levels of sophisticated safety, connectivity and convenience features.

The extensive model range of a C-Class is powered by EU6-compliant turbo-charged petrol and diesel engines with six-speed manual or 7G-Tronic Plus seven-speed automatic transmissions; there are two ultra-efficient petrol and diesel hybrid models that top the emissions and economy charts, and drivers have the choice of luxurious SE, engaging Sport or dynamic AMG Line trims.

What makes the C-Class stand above its peers, is it is the first vehicle in its segment that can be fitted with AirMATIC air suspension on both the front and rear axles.

It is also the only vehicle in this segment to offer tunnel detection via satellite navigation to start air recirculation automatically when entering a tunnel, and stopping it once the vehicle emerges from the tunnel. This system is also able to provide more accurate real-time information when it receives its traffic data via online ‘Live Traffic Information’ service.
