The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

Rob Mo­ran, direc­tor of Mercedes-Benz USA Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Christoph Horn, head of Global Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Pas­sen­ger Cars Mercedes-Benz, and AMG boss Chris­tian Bo­kich, with the tro­phies that Mercedes-Benz won in three cat­e­gories in the pres­ti­gious World Car Awards 2015. The C-Class won the World Car of the Year 2015 Award. The S-Class Coupé was voted World Luxury Car 2015, while the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car picked up the award for World Per­for­mance Car 2015. Mercedes-Benz was the only au­to­mo­bile man­u­fac­turer to make it into the fi­nal round of the awards with five ve­hi­cles. This per­for­mance is un­prece­dented in the 11-year his­tory of the World Car of the Year Awards and serves to re­flect the tremen­dous pop­u­lar­ity of the Stuttgart-based brand among its cus­tomers. The in­ter­na­tional jury for th­ese pres­ti­gious awards is made up of 75 renowned au­to­mo­tive jour­nal­ists. Mercedes-Benz has found favour with the jury in pre­vi­ous years too: in 2014, the S-Class won the cat­e­gory World Luxury Car. In 2012, the S 250 CDI BlueEfficiency was the win­ner in the cat­e­gory World Green Car, while the same award was taken back in 2007 by the E 320 BlueTEC. PHOTO: QUICK­PIC
