The MoT Files: The top 10 performing fleet cars
According to data from the Department for Transport’s National Travel Survey, a company car will cover around 19,400 miles a year, with most approach the 60,000 barrier by the time the first MoT test is due.
However, with the recession still fresh in the minds of fleet managers, more and more firms are keeping their cars for longer, which makes MoT performance an all important factor when it comes to choosing which cars make it to those fleet lists. We've crunched the data in the MoT Files to find the top 10 performing fleet cars. What’s more, we have also contrasted the numbers with the SMMT’s data 2010 fleet registrations to get an in-depth view of how the UK's big selling cars perform when it comes to the first MoT.
Mercedes-Benz E-Class 86% pass rate
Boasting an impressive MoT pass rate of 86%, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the UK’s most reliable company car and it is 25% more likely to pass its first MoT compared to the average company car. According to our data, the E-Class is 66% better than any other 2010 car when it comes to suspension and a whopping 83% healthier when it comes to exhaust, fuel and emissions.
