In addition, our E-Class was voted by the AA New Zealand Motoring Writer’s Guild, the National Business Review, and Driven as the best new vehicle in New Zealand, while our GLC was recognised as New Zealand’s safest car. These outstanding models have helped our brand to realise exceptional growth across many individual segments, and particularly with our GLC, which has quickly become the first choice for kiwi buyers when considering a luxury midsized SUV.
The Mercedes-AMG result followed this success in 2016, led by the launch of our award winning AMG C 63 S Coupe and new AMG 43 variants. Mercedes-AMG delivered a record number of high performance vehicles to our passionate customers, which cements New Zealand as the most successful country globally for Mercedes-AMG as a percentage of sales. In 2017 we celebrate 50 years of AMG, and with a host of new performance models soon to arrive, we’re in a very strong position heading into the new year”, Giffin concluded.
