Stuttgart. Mercedes-Benz has maintained its lead in the readers’ poll “Auto Trophy 2015 World’s Best Cars”: the brand with the star secured first place in four categories. Like last year, the C and S-Class won the categories “Best mid-size car” and “Best luxury saloon.” In addition, Mercedes-Benz was voted the world’s best brand and the brand with the fewest complaints in the “Quality Trophy.” The award was presented last night at the Cruise Center in Hamburg-Altona.
Readers of the car magazine “Auto Zeitung” chose the C-Class and the S-Class for the second time: like in 2014, this year, too, the Mercedes models won the categories “Best mid-size car” and “Best luxury saloon.”
The Mercedes-Benz brand also took two first places in the Auto Trophy 2015: the Stuttgart automotive manufacturer won the category “World’s best brand” and the “Quality trophy for the brand with the fewest complaints.” This innovation prize was jointly awarded by international editorial teams and the technical inspection agency GTÜ.
