Best Business Class Cars in SA
The Business Class category is guided by both eligibility factors and Pillars of Success.
Eligibility for this category includes a list price that falls between R600 000 and R800 000 at the time of semi-finalist voting (1 September 2019) to ensure a healthy measure of prestige. The fitment of required optional extras must collectively not push the price over R800 000. Eligible vehicles must have 6 airbags and Electronic Stability Control (ESC).
Pillars of Success in this category include powertrain technology, luxury, brand strength, design and quality appeal, driving dynamics and technology.

Mercedes-Benz C300 AMG Line
As a top-seller in its segment of the South African new vehicle market and with a World Car of the Year title under its belt, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class continues to be a comfortable front-runner in the business class segment. However, the Stuttgart-based firm extensively facelifted the C-Class in mid-2018, which introduced new engines, safety features and tech.

VW Arteon 2.0 TSI 4Motion R-Line
The head-turning Volkswagen Arteon is the successor to the svelte CC. It looks like no other contemporary Volkswagen and is, in essence, a fashion-forward reimagining of the conservative Passat. However, in a segment dominated by premium brands, does a Volkswagen have enough prestige to see it go all the way? It did so last year, but the segment has changed.
