The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has won an unprecedented 4 Awards at the Vehicle Dynamics International Awards, 2014. The S-Class was nominated for the awards by both Vehicle Dynamics International magazine’s expert readership of chassis and dynamics professionals and by its editorial team. Between four and six shortlisted finalists in each category were then put to an international and independent judging panel of automotive journalists, each of whom voted for the outright winners. The judging panel was made up of 27 judges from 19 countries.

The result was emphatic wins for the S-Class – winning ‘Car of the Year’, Magic Body Control won ‘Innovation of the Year’, Dr. Hermann Storp, who led the development of the S-Class, won ‘Dynamicist of the Year’, and the wider Mercedes-Benz Research and Development department won ‘Dynamics Team of the Year’ too.
Dr. Hermann Storp commented: ‘We are very proud of this recognition, I’m not sure any single brand has won so many awards in this category and it’s down to the hard work and dedication of my team for making it possible. When we were developing it, the S-Class aimed to set new benchmarks and be the best car we could possibly make and dynamics play a big part in this. I’d like to thank the judges for their kind comments I join my team in being justifiably proud to be presented with these Awards.

The S-Class is the most diverse range within the Mercedes-Benz line-up available with a choice of four-, six-, eight- or 12-cylinder engines, three Hybrids and two wheelbases. Likewise, it’s available with the most sophisticated array of comfort, dynamic and safety technologies fitted to any car.
In the UK, the S-Class remains the Number One luxury car in its market segment, with the new S 300 BlueTEC Hybrid arriving in showrooms this month. Equipped with a four-cylinder diesel engine and a 27 hp electric motor, the S 300 BlueTEC Hybrid is capable of returning 61.4 mpg on the combined cycle while emitting 120 g/km of CO2.
