Twenty female motoring journalists from 15 countries around the world have chosen the Mercedes-Benz S-Class as the Women’s World Car of the Year for 2014. Are we surprised? Not in the least. After all, it’s considerably difficult to fault a car of this caliber and it embellishes just about all the characteristics that would appeal to women (and men), which include, superb comfort features, next-level class, impressive performance, a rather large price tag and dare we say, sex appeal.
Mercedes-Benz S-Class reigns supremeThe S-Class was competing with cars across six categories and received more points than all the category winners and scooped the ultimate ‘Supreme Award’ in the process. The S-Class was judged on design, technical capability and comfort, among other criteria, as well as ‘wow factor’ and value for money.
We recently spent some time with the S65 AMG and it was nothing short of phenomenal. The technology, interior, performance and attention to detail was mind-blowing. As you would expect, the recently revealed Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is in a class of its own when it comes to luxury.
Mercedes-Benz also recently announced South African pricing for the S-Class Coupe due in 2015, which will add variety to the range. Now would be a good time to make friends with your bank manager.
