Mercedes-Benz S-Class was declared the 2014 World Luxury Car at the awards

all over the world, then a short list of three finalists: the winner as well as the Bentley Flying Spur

is not only our customers who expect a new S-Class to set standards – but also
the journalists," said Prof. Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of
Management Daimler AG, responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars
Development, adding, "The success of the S-Class in this category makes us
very proud indeed, and once more demonstrates that we have met these expectations."
World Car jurors observed that, “Mercedes dominates the big luxury sedan market
worldwide and the challenge of the sixth-generation S-Class was to be even
better than the fifth-gen model. They did it by creating a car so far advanced
in this segment that competitors pretty much have ceased trying to go
head-to-head with the S. The exterior is completely new and the interior is
spectacular on a whole new level”.
