Carsguide announces Mercedes-Benz C-Class as 2014 Car of the Year

MyDrive – Carsguide | Mercedes-Benz Australia – The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been awarded 2014 Carsguide Car of the Year after extensive testing and assessment by some of Australia’s most experienced motoring critics.

The Judges’ voted and the result was unanimous. “The Mercedes was voted by six judges as the unanimous winner because it was the only one of the Top 10 contenders to reset numerous automotive benchmarks, with advanced features that will soon trickle down to more affordable models such as a pedestrian-protecting pop-up bonnet, an automatic emergency braking radar system, and a class-leading nine airbags,” said the Carsguide team.

With over 2,000 new C-Class vehicles delivered to Australian customers since the new models August launch this year it’s not just the judges who are impressed with Australia’s favourite luxury car.

Managing Director Mercedes-Benz Cars and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Horst von Sanden thanked the Carsgude team for the award.

“We’re very pleased to accept the Carsguide 2014 Car of the Year award as it was up against a varied group of worthy competitors. I’d like to thank the judges for their thorough and fair assessment and awarding the new C-Class with this important accolade”, said Mr von Sanden said.

Standard safety equipment played an important role in the judges’ criteria as stated by CarsGuide editor Richard Blackburn. “The Mercedes C-Class is a window to the future for the average family sedan. The sophisticated crash avoidance technology it showcases is slowly making its way into mainstream cars. And that means safer motoring for our grandchildren and ultimately fewer lives lost on the roads.”

The all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class range delivers a sensuous, clear design and sporty interior with high-class appeal. The entry level C 200 models offer a host of technological innovations, including extensive safety features such as Blind Spot Assist and Collision Prevention Assist PLUS, LED headlamps, fuel efficiency benchmarks and lively performance.

The all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class is now on sale in both Saloon and Estate variants.
