Executive diesels

FLEET NewsNet takes a look at how new cars you take onto your fleet might perform over the next three years and 60,000 miles. Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle.

This week, we look at key executive models, with the BMW 530d SE auto taking on the Mercedes-Benz E320 CDI Elegance.
