Mercedes-Benz S-Class gets the Car Buyer Best Luxury Car Award 2012

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 12, 2012

The Mercedes-Benz was given the S-Class prestigious Car Buyer Best Luxury Car award for 2012. Car Buyer team judges have evaluated each new car in the UK over the last 12 months according to factors that its readers considered to be the most important. These include running costs, safety, economy, performance, owner satisfaction, reliability and comfort.

The S-Class has many rivals in the luxury car segment but none of them could beat it. The judges were in agreement that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is “still the best luxury car on sale” as it is built beautifully and offers unsurpassed comfort.

This isn’t the first award for the flagship model of Mercedes-Benz. For the last seven straight years, it was named by WhatCar? as the Best Luxury Car of the Year. And for six years, it was named as Auto Express's Best Luxury car. Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz UK Limited, said that the S-Class is at the “pinnacle of luxurious motoring” but the company continues to improve on it.

In the past year, the range has gotten BlueTEC clean diesel technology and stop/start. These had improved its fuel efficiency and cut its CO2 emissions. The S 350 BlueTEC offers 45.6 mpg on the combined cycle, a 10% improvement and it emits 7% less CO2 emissions with 154 g/km of CO2.

Since the S-Class was launched in 2005, more than 440,000 S-Class units were sold globally. More than 13,800 of these were sold in the UK. On the road, the S 350 BlueTEC is priced from £60,605 while the S 350 BlueTEC LWB costs from £64,605.
