Review

AS part of our section covering the remarketing industry, Fleet NewsNet is looking at how new cars you take on to your fleet might perform over the next three years. Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we will benchmark two cars against each other to see how they both perform over three years/60,000 miles, listing how each car’s value performs at key mileages and dates during its life. This week, we compare petrol and diesel in the Mercedes-Benz S-class.
