Dr Alec Wortley's S300 BlueTec Hybrid. Dec 14 - Current.

The S300 BlueTec Hybrid has been voted "Professional Drivers Car of the Year 2014" (Professional Driver Magazine) and is not only economical at 60mpg, but also affords a very luxurious driving experience. I only have one minor complaint and that is the indicators are virtually silent. This problem is potentiated by the fact that it is possible to adjust the steering wheel to be in such a position where it blocks the view of the indicator lights. Since some owners of this car may have reduced hearing ability, it would be very good for Mercedes to provide an option for a volume control for the indicators to prevent any possible errors caused by inappropriate signalling.
