2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Is This Year's World Luxury Car of the Year

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been recognized as this year’s World Luxury Car of the Year. Voted by 93 international journalists from 28 countries, Mercedes-Benz’s flagship sedan beat out Sweden’s Polestar 2, and Britain’s Land Rover Defender to win the award.

This is the fourth World Luxury Car win for Mercedes-Benz, and the second time that the S-Class has won the title in the World Car Awards’ 17 year history.

“It’s a great honor to see the new S-Class recognized around the globe as the 2021 World Luxury Car”, says Prof. Dr. Uwe Ernstberger, Head of S-Class and C-Class model series product group at Mercedes-Benz AG. “And it feels right. Building on its long tradition of innovation, the new generation once again sets the pace in the automotive industry. The S-Class offers trailblazing innovations in all areas, from safety and comfort to efficiency.”

Vehicles eligible for World Luxury Car award must be produced in volumes of at least 5,000 units per year, must be priced at the luxury-car level in their primary markets, and must be “on-sale” in at least two major markets, on at least two separate continents, between May 1, 2020 and May 1, 2021.
