Double honours For Mercedes-Benz Vans at FN50 2020


Mercedes-Benz Vans UK has once again been crowned Most Reliable Manufacturer, while the Sprinter has been honoured with the title of Most Reliable Van at the coveted FN50 Awards for the seventh year in total.

To compile the awards, FN50 companies are asked to rank their vans in order of the best performing in terms of breakdowns and warranty claims and allocate points, which are then collated to create league tables.
Stephen Briers, Editor-in-Chief, Fleet News, explained: “Strong performances from its two key models has taken Mercedes-Benz to number one in this year’s Fleet News FN50 van manufacturer reliability study after coming second in 2019. The Sprinter’s reliability show no signs of weakening after taking the top spot in the van listing for an incredible sixth consecutive year. The Vito also makes the top 10 with a highly respectable eighth place. Mercedes-Benz understands the importance of reliability to its fleet customers and continues to prove its worth year after year.”

Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd, added: “A van is a tool of business so it has to work, and work hard. It is therefore one of the proudest accolades for us when one of our vehicles is recognised as keeping businesses moving, so to be honoured for the seventh time for Sprinter as the Most Reliable Van is a very special achievement for us. To also be recognised a Brand for our commitment to reliability is also an extremely humbling thing. We have been especially pleased this year to keep the hard-working van community moving during one of the most challenging years they have faced, so this double FN50 win is a real honour.”
