Mercedes-Benz Offers Lowest Costs


    The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter offered the lowest total cost of ownership in its class in Canada for the third consecutive year, says a ‘total cost of ownership’ study by Vincentric, a private automotive data collection and analysis firm. Additionally, the Sprinter also captured three accolades in Vincentric’s ‘Best Fleet Value in Canada’ awards, winning every category entered. The study calculated many permutations for annual total distances traveled in Canada from 25,000to 60,000 kilometres per year for three, four, and five years. The ‘Lifecycle Cost Analysis’ methodology examined depreciation, fuel costs, insurance, maintenance, repairs, financing, fees and taxes, and opportunity cost, which is the loss of potential interest income as a result of owning and operating a vehicle.
