This time the readers voted the Mercedes-Benz C-Class the best mid-series vehicle, while in the luxury car segment the S-Class took top honours. And when it came to sports cars, it was the Mercedes-AMG GT which crossed the finish line in first place.
Developed fully in house by Mercedes-AMG, the AMG GT achieves true race track performance and thus a highly dynamic driving experience thanks to its front mid-engine design, intelligent aluminium lightweight construction and also its AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine rated at up to 375 kW (510 hp).

The C-Class won favour with the readers with its modern, aesthetic design, high-class interior and also cutting-edge technology. Among its features it boasts exemplary safety and high efficiency, and shines with impressively sporty and agile handling.
The S-Class impressed readers as the yardstick for technological advancement and luxury motoring. Its unrivalled innovations include the magic body control system, which makes the saloon the world’s first automobile capable of recognising uneven road surfaces in advance and adjusting the suspension for an unprecedented level of ride comfort.
