Three Mercedes Cars Nominated as the Best Car to Buy in 2015

Mercedes S63 AMG

Recently, Motor Authority conducted a poll to determine the Best Car to Buy in 2015. Fifteen cars were featured by the car portal in the selection. Among them were three Mercedes cars.

In the said poll, the latest Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Mercedes GLA45 AMG, and  Mercedes S63 AMG were included. The rest of the choices were the Acura TLX, Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW M3/M4, Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, Ford Mustang, Jaguar F-Type Coupe, Lamborghini Huracán, Lexus RC F, Porsche 918 Spyder, Porsche Macan, Subaru WRX, and the Volkswagen GTI.

It was not discussed thoroughly how the website narrowed down its options. It simply said it was a balance of factors like driving pleasure, comfort, performance, and style.

Leading in the survey was the Hellcat, which displayed the penchant of the majority of its readers in brutish muscle cars. However, looking at the other nominees, they could be easily trampled down by the Mercedes S63 AMG if the elements of performance, safety, convenience, comfort, and technology were to be considered.

In terms of power, the Hellcat would surely dominate the Mercedes S63 AMG. However, going to the design, it is like comparing beauty and the beast. The Hellcat would not even stand to the comfort, interior design and safety features of the more modest Mercedes C-Class. So, it is short of saying that it is nowhere near the S63 AMG in overall features. Even the organizer of the poll heavily rooted for the AMG-modified S-Class because of the harmonious combination of all the elements that people look for in a car.

But then again, we all have our preferences. The participants of the poll showed that most of them would prefer engine power over anything else.
