In the mid-range and luxury category, the newly-launched Mercedes-Benz C-Class W205 was voted by Auto Bild readers to take first place, while second place went to the S-Class W222.
The gorgeous Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe C217 took the Auto Bild Design Award in the Coupe and Cabriolet Category, while the new GLA X156 compact crossover/SUV won the most beautiful SUV award.
As far as studies and concept cars are concerned, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo had almost no competitors in its category, winning the award with flying colors.
The all-new C-Class W205 not only won in the mid-range and luxury category, but it also emerged as the winner in the overall rankings, followed closely by the S-Class Coupe C217 in second place and the S-Class W222 in third.
As the Auto Bild readers/voters are obviously German, it is no wonder that Mercedes-Benz is also the best sold premium carmaker there and the second best-sold carmaker of any kind in Germany.
In other somewhat related news, the interior design of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class W222 was chosen as one of the ten best of 2014 by American car magazine Ward's Auto World, from a pool of 41 all-new or restyled cars.
“No other vehicle interior worldwide combines aesthetics, technology and safety like the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class.” said Drew Winter, editor-in-chief of “Ward‘s Auto World”. “With the S-Class, Mercedes-Benz is re-writing the script for interior design - not only for its own brand, but maybe for all German luxury cars.” he continued.
