Mercedes-Benz C-Class Honoured

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been crowned 'Best Premium Car'

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been crowned 'Best Premium Car' at the 2012 Fleet News Awards. And why not? This compact executive cruiser looks fantastic, feels superb on the road, and says to the world 'I've made it'. It also feels beautifully screwed together and has a superbly refined cabin. No surprise its manufacturer has sold 98,000 examples of this generation in the UK since 2007 - and over one million worldwide. In fact, Mercedes-Benz has sold 8.5 million cars in this sector since the 1982 Mercedes-Benz 190.

Nick Andrews, Head of Fleet for Mercedes-Benz UK, commented: “We are delighted to have won Best Premium Car for our C-Class at the Fleet News Awards, which really confirms our commitment to deliver the finest product and best service to our fleet customers. With a current upgrade offer on the model line from Elegance to a Sport, saving up to £1,700, the C-Class really is the ideal choice for both drivers and fleet managers.”

The Fleet News judges were positive too: “A major facelift, which includes a high quality interior, has made the C-Class a far more desirable car. Mercedes-Benz has addressed the CO2 issues, resulting in a much more efficient car with running costs up with the best.”
