Surveys conducted by thechauffeur.com have always revealed the Mercedes-Benz E220 CDi to be the most popular choice for the UK’s chauffeur industry.
With its 50 plus MPG figures and class leading boot space, the E-class certainly provides everything for the chauffeur offering a premium executive service. Although, judges did feel a little more development is needed in making the suspension a little softer, and perhaps more attention to detail inside the cabin.
Chauffeurs like the fact little advertising is required to promote the Mercedes-Benz marque, therefore making it an extremely popular vehicle. Away from the badge, the E-Class does offer a great quality ride, standard equipment levels and looks the part from the outside.
Although judges were unaware of the chauffeur programmes on offer, the base model priced at a shade under £29,000, it proved excellent value for money when put alongside other cars in the category.
