Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Awarded By ACFO

The ACFO Awards, which took place in front of an audience of around 200 guests at St John’s Hotel in Solihull, is in its 34th year. The annual award show recognizes vehicles and brands in the fleet industry.

The organization recognized the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter as the ‘Large Van of the Year,’ beating out the Ford Transit. The Sprinter offers drivers two powerful and capable turbocharged diesel engine options, 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission and configurations for both commercial and passenger needs. Additionally, the Sprinter offers drivers low cost-of-ownership as well as the availability of a host of advanced safety technology.

“It speaks volumes that the Sprinter continues to win awards, even as it gets towards the end of its production life. The ACFO Awards are especially rewarding as they are voted for by fleet operators themselves, proving our commitment to keeping businesses moving.”
– Ricky McFarland, Head of Strategic Accounts, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Additionally, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class was awarded ‘Fleet Car of the Year’ alongside the Skoda Superb. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers drivers the legendary upscale style and good looks expected from a Mercedes-Benz, as well as impressive efficiency, up to 84 cubic feet of passenger room, a host of high-tech features and so much more.
