Finnish magazine, Tekniikan Maailma, (translated to mean Technology World) asked its readers to help decide who was most deserving of a new vehicle to celebrate their 60th anniversary. The resounding answer from their readers – the police for traffic control.
Choosing who was deserving was the easy part, choosing what kind of vehicle should be donated took a little more research. It needed to be a car that was fast, performed well in bad weather and was environmentally friendly. The vehicle finally decided on by Tekniikan Maailma‘s President was none other than the Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 CDI Shooting Brake 4MATIC. It’s flashy, fast, great in bad weather and gets an average of 6.7 l per 100 km (1.8 gallons per 62 miles)
