The award-winning Mercedes-Benz S-Class adds yet another accolade to its name – Professional Driver’s Chauffeur Car of the Year 2012.

Mark Bursa, editor of Professional Driver and chairman of the judging panel, said: “The S-Class received consistent scoring from all the judges who tested it, and it’s a testament to its quality that a car toward the end of its product lifecycle can still outscore some newer rivals to win our Chauffeur Car of the Year category for 2012.”

He continued: “Good customer support has also played a major part. Mercedes-Benz made major improvements to its chauffeur programme this year, with the S-Class now matching its competitors pound-for-pound, so it boils down to taste. And the three-pointed star still carries a lot of kudos in the chauffeur industry.”

The S 350 BlueTEC L is equipped with one of the world’s cleanest diesel engines, returning41.5 mpg and 177 g/km of CO2 on the combined cycle.

Nick Andrews, Head of Fleet at Mercedes-Benz UK, said: “We are honoured to receive this award. The S-Class has always been the industry trailblazer when it comes to safety, comfort and driver assistance technologies, and this award cements its reputation.”
