Two golden steering wheels for Mercedes-Benz

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay News | Latest Industry News

The winner of the SUV class was determined in a direct vote, so making the Mercedes-Benz M-Class the winner of the “Golden Steering Wheel” in this group. The

SLK won its category after being shortlisted along with four of its competitors.

 

Readers from across Europe valued not only the M-Class’s characteristic and distinctive design and its variable interior, with that all-important sense of wellbeing,
but also the excellent energy efficiency and thus environmental acceptability of this premium SUV.

 

The permanent all-wheel drive system of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class also proved a determining factor thanks to its well-balanced ride comfort along with excellent driving dynamics, both on and off road, along with the car’s outstanding range and high level of safety.

 

What ultimately swayed the result in favour of the SLK Roadster in the “Golden Steering Wheel”

competition was, above all, the way it manages to combine light-footed sportiness with stylish comfort, striking sports car design with absolute everyday practicality, and superb performance with exemplary
ecological credentials.

 

With the excellent performance it derives from its economical and yet powerful engines, along with technical innovations such as the unique panoramic vario-roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL, which can be switched from light to dark at the touch of a button, the SLK takes driving pleasure and open air enjoyment to a whole new
level.

 

These two first places put the Suttgart-based premium-brand manufacturer at the very top of the “Golden Steering Wheel” all-time winners’ list, and it marks thecontinuation of a fine tradition: with a total of 21 victories to date, the brand with the three-pointed star now leads the field of the most successful car brands to win the competition for the “Golden Steering Wheel”
