Mercedes launches Fleet & Business Comparison Tool
The tool enables fleet customers and company car drivers to compare any Mercedes-Benz model with the three nearest like-for-like competitors, or any vehicle they choose.
Provided by CAP, the real-time data even enables users to compare vehicles to their own car by entering their registration number – all comparisons are presented in a clear and concise layout which can be saved and emailed in a user-friendly format.
The resulting data includes a detailed comparison of cost-efficiency, technology, residual value, standard specification and optional extras – listed in order of importance for varying fleet audiences. This takes into account the P11D cost of the car which is key in the fleet industry.
Sally Dennis, head of fleet, Mercedes-Benz UK, said: ‘We have worked hard at Mercedes-Benz to ensure we are competitive in terms of standard equipment, CO2 emissions, and economy, and are pleased to be able to offer a tool that delivers intelligent analysis and drives consideration for the Mercedes-Benz brand and product offering. We hope this tool will help users see how competitive we are in the market and encourage them to take another look at Mercedes-Benz and see that the numbers work.’
The brand added that as it continues to develop and improve the efficiency of its combustion engines, including hybrids such as the S 300 BlueTEC Hybrid and the C 300 BlueTEC Hybrid which arrive this summer, users can see the effects of these new technologies via this new comparison tool.
