The Mercedes-Benz E-Class 220d AMG Line has won the ‘Executive Car of the Year’ at the 2016 Professional Driver Car of the Year Awards.
The new E-Class was praised for its latest technological advancements in safety and its ‘comfortable’ interior that offers plenty of rear seating space. Mark Bursa, editor of Professional Driver magazine, said: “The new E 220 d is a formidable vehicle, taking on a lot of safety technology and interior finish from the S-Class. It’s roomy and comfortable, and it is still the benchmark executive car for chauffeurs.”
Mercedes-Benz Cars UK’s head of fleet, Rob East, said: "The E-Class is a hugely important model for us – it’s at the very heart of our brand. It’s one of our longest serving models and it’s great to see the car still getting the recognition it deserves. The newest E-Class takes style, comfort and technology to a new level, making it the perfect executive package."
Picked out for its affordable style and standard features, the E220 d in AMG Line trim takes design cues from the AMG performance department for both the interior and exterior, including leather trim, stainless steel pedals and sports steering wheels, as well as AMG body styling.
Fitted with a 2.1-litre diesel engine that helps boost economy and a refined drive, the E-Class 220d AMG Line starts from £38,725, and to find out more about the model and the rest of the E-Class models, contact your nearest Inchcape Mercedes-Benz Centre.
