2. Mercedes-Benz Atego
Now in its 22nd year, the Mercedes-Benz Atego 7.5 tonner enjoys a solid reputation for durability, quality engineering and performance.
Spacious and comfortable; it enjoys success in the own-account sectors and compliments fleets with larger Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Weight and price tag usually combine to keep Atego towards the back of the field when it comes to sales. That said, not everyone wants to max out a 7.5 tonner and if they run bigger Mercs then an Atego is the obvious choice.
There is plenty going for it; a very impressive engine, transmission and driveline, and a cabin that drivers love to work in.
In an age where many choose for run-of-the-mill chassis-cabs supplied by DAF, Iveco and Renault – all with the same cab – then perhaps being different means buying an Atego.
