Mercedes R-Class and SLS AMG emerge as most popular cars at Internet Auto Award 2010

28.10.2010 / Stuttgart –

Mercedes-Benz has taken three first places in Europe's largest public internet survey. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG even scored top honours in two awards, winning both the super sports car and coup?© category as well as simultaneously being voted Europe's most popular car. The Mercedes-Benz R-Class also picked up an Internet Auto Award 2010 as Europe's most popular van.

When it came to voting for Europe's most popular car, the answer could not have been clearer: the majority of the voting public opted for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG super sports car. A unique and exciting style combined with an exquisite level of engineering - all of which evoke memories of that sports car legend from the 1950s, the 300 SL - enabled the gullwing to take top honours in this category. On top of this, the SLS also emerged as the clear winner in the super sports car and coup?© category.

The most popular vehicle in the van and compact van category, according to the online community, was the Mercedes-Benz R-Class. By voting in this way, the participants acknowledged the fact that the R-Class not only boasts an exciting design, but also meets the requirements of contemporary-minded, leisure-oriented people looking for a versatile car that also provides agile handling. It combines first-class comfort for up to seven people, a high degree of variability and a prestigious character.

In Germany, other Mercedes-Benz vehicles were also voted into the top places. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class won in the medium-size category and the E-Class in the intermediate category, while the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet picked up the most votes in the cabriolet category.
