Mercedes Benz S-Class is Diesel Car Magazine’s Executive Car of the Year
- Mercedes-Benz S-Class wins ‘Best Executive Car’ at 2015 Diesel Car, Car of the Year Awards
- The Awards were judged by a panel of well-respected writers from across the industry
- The S-Class remains the number one luxury car in the UK
Mercedes-Benz S-Class awarded ‘Best Executive Car’ in the 2015 Diesel Car Awards. The Award was judged by a panel of well-respected writers who tested more than 200 new vehicles over the past 12 months – voting on each one across ten different categories.
In announcing the Award, Ian Robertson, Editor and Publisher of Diesel Car Magazine, commented: “In this class of car, its attributes are often judged from the back seat, but in doing so, you’ll be missing out enormously, as it’s a fine car to pilot yourself, as well as being chauffeured around in. You’ll not find a more luxurious cabin, with exemplary attention to detail, beautiful design and a superb choice of the finest quality materials. If you’re the kind of person that has to have everything, look no further – luxurious saloons really don’t get any better than this.”
Four-, six-, eight- and 12-cylinder engines complete the line-up, three of which are Hybrids – available in two trim choices (SE Line and AMG Line) – as well as two mighty AMG models that combine comfort with immense performance. The range has also recently expanded to include the new Mercedes-Maybach and Mercedes-Maybach Pullman – bringing new levels of driver and passenger comfort to the market.
The car can be personalised through 13 different paint options and seven different trim options. A host of interior options are also available – including the Rear Seat Reclining package Package (£1,500) enabling the rear seat to recline up to 43.5 degrees, and the Rear Seat Comfort package (£3,500) which adds rear active multi-contour seats with massage function, a Burmester surround sound system and a rear seat entertainment system.
The S-Class – priced from £66,910 OTR – returns up to 100.9 mpg with CO2 emissions from 65 g/km. In the UK, the S-Class remains the number one luxury car in its market segment with over 2,700 vehicles registered in 2014 and over 1,050 vehicles registered so far this year.Click here for reuse options!
