Just a few hours ago, the 2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 sedan was named Esquire’s Car of the Year. That is just one more trophy for the brand that gets one each week, at least. A muscle car disguised in a sedan, with the perfect blend of elegance and brutal power. This is how Esquire is describing the winner of the annual award.
“We’d say it was inevitable, given the handcrafted V8 Biturbo, AMG-tuned chassis and other virtues—but then, we’re biased”, posted Mercedes-Benz USA on their social network profile. The Esquire experts say that engine is brutal, yet docile in traffic,
The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 sedan defeated rivals like 2016 Cadillac CTS-V, 2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, Tesla Model S P90D. And it was not an easy battle! “After hours of discussion, arguments, and banter, the vote was unanimous: The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 is what we want in a car, but also what we think most of you want”, the Esquire rep says.
Why it was above the others?
“You can do the silly, terrible things you can do in a Hellcat, but you won’t burn fuel like a 747. You can travel long distances with ease—no waiting for a battery charge every few hours—which you can’t do in a Tesla. You don’t have to explain away subpar details, as you do with the Cadillac”, the juries say.
No hard feelings from the defeated, though!
