Stuttgart – Mercedes-Benz Design has set the tone with four first places in the Automotive Brand Contest 2014. A jury of top experts has awarded four of its highest “Best of Best” accolades to models from Mercedes-Benz.
As part of this highly regarded, international design competition organised by the independent German Design Council – an initiative of the German Bundestag (lower house of the German parliament) – the exterior of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the exterior and the interior of the S-Class Coupé, and the interior of the V-Class have all been awarded the highest “Best of Best” rating. The jury reserves this honour for particularly outstanding achievements.
The C-Class was rewarded for its modern aesthetic appeal featuring sensuous lines and surfaces that exude harmony and an excitement that enthuses onlookers. As a stunningly breathtaking and exclusive two-door car in the premium segment, the S-Class Coupé won for its top-quality specification and accomplished sportiness. The interior of the V-Class received the corresponding award in its segment thanks to the unique sense of perceived value derived from high-quality materials and finely executed details.
The awards for the Automotive Brand Contest 2014 will be presented on 2 October 2014 at the Paris Motor Show (Mondial de l’Automobile).
