Mercedes-Benz A-Class wins fleet car award

A-Class from Mercedes-Benz named UK Fleet Car of the Year.

In Australia the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is priced from just $35,900.

Following on from Mercedes-Benz taking out the UK Professional Driver Award for 2014, the A-Class has been named Fleet Car of the Year.

Beating home almost twenty other finalists, the Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO) award comes after fleet operators in the UK purchased around 10,000 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vehicles so far this year, 84% more than for the same period last year.

ACFO chairman John Pryor said the A-Class was a very worthy winner.

“The importance of the company car as an employee recruitment and retention tool means that vehicles across all market sectors are today being considered by businesses and their staff.

“However, vehicles must continue to be fit-for-purpose and deliver excellent total cost of ownership as well as first class MPG and low emissions.

“In voting the A-Class Fleet Car of the Year, the ACFO membership clearly believes the vehicle is cost effective to operate, safe, reliable and environmentally-friendly.”
