The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been named as the Car of the Year at the BusinessCar Awards 2015.
Voted for by readers of BusinessCar, the BusinessCar Awards are unique in being the only awards decided entirely by the fleet industry itself.
In announcing the award, Paul Barker, Editor at BusinessCar, commented: â€œItâ€™s testament to both the quality of the product and to the way Mercedes-Benz has stepped up its business operation that the readers of BusinessCar have voted the C-Class as our Business Car of the Year.
The C-Class is competitive like never before on everything from styling to the all-important running costs, and thatâ€™s reflected in this prestigious awards triumph.â€
Sally Dennis, Head of Fleet, Mercedes-Benz UK, added: â€œWeâ€™re absolutely delighted that the C-Class has been named 2015 Business Car of the Year. The C-Class keeps going from strength to strength with an expanding range of efficient, low tax, low emission fleet models supported by a dedicated and thriving team of fleet-focused colleagues operating throughout the UK.â€
The new C-Class Saloon returns up to 78.5 mpg with CO2 emissions as low as 94 g/km â€“ putting the C 300 BlueTEC Hybrid in the 11 per cent company car tax band. In addition to its remarkable efficiency, the new model boasts impressive looks, innovative technology and extraordinary comfort.
