2016 AA New Zealand Car of the Year

Supreme Car and Luxury Car of the Year - Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has trumped all competition, across all vehicle categories, and been recognized as New Zealand’s best car for 2016. It has also been recognized as the best luxury vehicle in the New Zealand market.

Following months of exhaustive testing, the NZ Motoring Writer’s Guild President, Liz Dobson said “Mercedes-Benz says that this 10th generation E-Class has leapt forward two decades with its technology, and having driven it extensively at the global launch, in Australia and on New Zealand roads, I have to agree. But it's not only the outstanding passive and active safety features that make this car a winner, it also has a cabin and front dash that is futuristic, while the exterior styling make it a head turner.

"Given the rigorous, independent testing process employed by the New Zealand Motoring Writer’s Guild employs, there can be no doubt that the judges were seriously impressed with the outstanding technological features, lavish appointments and stunning design of the new E-Class.
