S-Class outclasses its rivals

THE Mercedes-Benz S-Class has won an unprecedented four awards at the Vehicle Dynamics International Awards, 2014.

The S-Class was nominated by both Vehicle Dynamics International magazine’s expert readership of chassis and dynamics professionals and its editorial team. Shortlisted finalists in each category were then put to an international and independent judging panel of 27 journalists from 19 countries.

The result was emphatic wins for the S-Class winning car of the year, Magic Body Control won innovation of the year, Dr Hermann Storp, who led the development of the S-Class, won dynamicist of the Year, and the wider Mercedes-Benz research and development department won dynamics team of the year, too.

In the UK, the S-Class remains the number one luxury car in its market segment, with the new S 300 BlueTEC Hybrid arriving in showrooms this month. The hybrid is capable of returning 61.4mpg on the combined cycle while emitting 120g/km of CO2.
