The Mercedes-Benz S Class maintains its place at the top for the fifth consecutive year for the 'Best Luxury Car' at the Auto Express New Car Awards.
Mike Whittington, Sales Director for Mercedes-Benz UK said "We are delighted that the Mercedes-Benz S Class has been recognised as Best Luxury Car at the Auto Express New Car Awards again this year. These consecutive wins really demonstrate the strength of the S-Class in the Luxury segment and in October this year the Mercedes-Benz S Class will become an even more competitive package with the introduction of new active safety systems and BlueTEC technology." The unique BlueTEC technology significantly reduces the only gas constituents that are higher in diesel engines than in petrol engines, therefore reducing emissions and improving efficiency.
Many features of the Mercedes-Benz S Class are unique and remain unrivalled by competitors. Safety features on the Mercedes-Benz S Class continue to develop and October will see the arrival of the new Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist, both optionally available as part of the Driving Assistance Package which also includes Distronic Plus.
Mercedes-Benz will be the first manufacturer to offer a vehicle that already meets EU 6 standards that don’t come into effect in the UK until 2014. The Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTEC brings an extra 20 hp and 40 Nm of torque as well as an 11.6 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency and a reduction in CO2 emissions by 22 g/km.
