Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé claims ‘Luxury Car of the Year’.

Drive Life, a Wellington based motoring review blog has announced last month, the best cars driven in 2019. Mercedes-Benz has had a strong year in these awards, taking out three of the ten awards.
This year Mercedes-Benz has claimed both ‘Luxury Car of the Year’ and ‘Gadget of the Year’ with the S-Class Coupé, as well as ‘Best Engine Sound’ with the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S. This marks the second year in a row that an AMG vehicle has won the ‘Best Engine Sound’ award, with the Mercedes-AMG C 43 Coupé claiming the title in 2017.

The awards are open to all vehicles driven by the team between 1st January and 31st December 2018, and are announced in January 2019 following a deliberation process of the judges.

Of the S-Class, Drive Life Managing Director John Galvin said, “The seats are on another level of luxury that I have never really experienced. I have never seen seat settings as I did in the S-Class. The front headlights are amazing, the active light system and adaptive high beam assist PLUS keep the Mercedes system head of the game. The list of safety systems on board the 560 S-Class almost melt the mind.”

“There are features in it that I didn’t even know cars had or needed, all of which that changed the driving experience dramatically. It felt special, much like treating yourself to a day spa. It’s hard to really convey what it was like to drive an S Class, like flying first class, you just have to experience it to understand.”

The S-Class Coupé facelift, launched in New Zealand in July 2018, and leads the Mercedes-Benz range in technology, safety innovation, comfort and luxury. Among the highlights is a move to the new 4.0 litre V8 engine for both standard and AMG models, further steps towards semi-autonomous driving, and an interior package that further defines the new S-Class as the undisputed leader in comfort and occupant wellness thanks to a new feature, ENERGIZING Comfort Control.

The all-new S-Class Coupé is available from $257,600 RRP for the S 560 plus on road costs.
