Mercedes-Benz has been named winner in three categories in the World Car Awards 2015 at the New York International Auto Show (April 3-2, 2015, Javits Center).
Particular success was enjoyed by the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which won the World Car of the Year 2015 award, ousting the Ford Mustang and the Volkswagen Passat for the top 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 commanding 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.
