The Mercedes-Benz E 220 d AMG Line has been revealed as the 2017 Professional Driver Car of the Year. The E-Class won the ‘Executive Car of the Year’ category, while the V 250 d Extra Long won ‘MPV of the Year’.

The E-Class was commended thanks to its innovative technology and interior comfort. The V-Class won its category thanks to being “especially practical” and “offering excellent rear seat comfort for five and ample luggage space for everyone’s bags”.

Mark Bursa, editor of Professional Driver Magazine, said: “The new E220d is such a versatile vehicle. It’s roomy and comfortable, and good enough for chauffeuring work, yet economical enough to use for private hire work such as airport runs. It incorporates a lot of safety technology and its interior finish is up to S-Class standard. And ignore the hysteria about diesel – this is an economical and clean car with very low emissions of CO2, NOx and particulates.”

Professional Driver magazine, launched in 2009, is the monthly publication for the UK private hire, chauffeur and taxi industry.
