Reader survey: "The best cars of 2014": The S-Class and G-Class are the best
Stuttgart, 30 January 2014
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the iconic G-Class off-road vehicle have been voted the best cars in their respective category. This was the conclusion reached by the readers of specialist German car magazine "auto motor und sport" as part of an extensive reader survey. As a result, both vehicles have been awarded the title "The best car of 2014".
Some 115,285 readers took part in this year's long-standing vote organised by specialist car magazine "auto, motor und sport" to find the best car of the year. Models from Mercedes-Benz succeeded in securing two pole positions: the S‑C lass scored a convincing victory in the luxury class, while the G-Class came out on top in the off-road vehicle category.
The S-Class has long been the yardstick for technological advancement and luxury motoring. It also boasts innovative safety systems which even feature a partially autonomous traffic jam vehicle following function, for example. Another unique highlight is MAGIC BODY CONTROL, which makes the new S‑Class the world's first ever vehicle that is able to detect surface undulations in the road ahead and adjust the suspension accordingly – the result gives a whole new meaning to ride comfort.

After some 20 years in service, the Swiss army's PUCH all-terrain vehicles are to be replaced by Mercedes G-Class 300 CDI vehicles, which follow the same essential vehicle concept but are technologically much more advanced. Mercedes-Benz is delighted that the Mercedes-Benz G-Class saw off competition from three rival contenders in the evaluation and tough tests conducted by armasuisse, the Swiss army's competence center for procurement and technology.
