S-Class Wins Prestige Car Award


    The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been named the ‘Best New Prestige Car’ (over $75,000) by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). This award follows the recent annual ‘Test Fest’ competition where 80 Canadian automotive journalists evaluated new vehicles based on a wide variety of criteria. Benchmarks in the luxury segment include Distronic Plus with Steering Assist which allows for hands-free semi-autonomous driving in traffic situations; Drive-Dynamic multi-contour front seats that provide seating comfort and offer the option of a hot stone massage; a Burmester surround sound system that is precisely configured to the vehicle’s interior; and an air balance system that provides the choice of four interior fragrances that can be selected according to personal preference and mood.
