Mercedes-Benz flagship has scored another victory. The all-new S-Class has been crowned Auto Express’ Luxury Car of the Year 2015.
Don’t think this was a fluke, though. The previous generation has won the same accolade for seven years in a row, while the current model is already at its second title.
According to Auto Express, the S-Class managed to surpass both the Bentley Mulsanne Speed and the Range Rover for its effortless blend of cutting-edge design and technology with traditional hand-crafted construction methods. Few cars feel as special, whether you’re at the wheel or in the back.
The S-Class also serves as a fantastic showcase for the tech we’ll see in future Mercedes. From the colour TFT instrument cluster to advanced driving technology such as Magic Ride Control suspension and near-autonomous cruise control, the S-Class is a genuine rolling laboratory.
Auto Express’ 2015 Luxury Car of the Year is a luxurious place to spend time. The jury has fallen in love with the acres of room in the back and the classy touches, while the standard air-suspension across the range means not many cars are as comfortable or as refined.
To top things off, the return of Maybach in the form of the V12 Mercedes-Maybach S 600 sets the S-Class as the pure epitome of luxury, a limo in the truest meaning of the therm, ready for presidential duties.
