Mercedes-Benz GL-class wins the best SUV award at Golden Steering Wheel 2012

Readers of the German newspapers Bild am Sonntag and Auto Bild, together with a panel of motoring experts, have crowned the Mercedes-Benz GL-class as the best SUV, voting to award the coveted 'Golden Steering Wheel' to the luxury cross-country vehicle.
This is the 22nd time that Mercedes-Benz has emerged as the winner of this Europe-wide competition. The prize was presented last night in Berlin to Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. 

More than 250,000 readers of 'Bild am Sonntag', 'Auto Bild' and 25 affiliated publications in 22 countries were responsible for ensuring that the Mercedes-Benz GL-class reached the final stages of voting for this year's 'Golden Steering Wheel' award, held at the Pirelli proving ground in Balocco (Italy). This is where, after a series of demanding field tests, a team of automotive experts met to agree on the best five vehicles. When it came to the SUV category, they voted to put the Mercedes-Benz GL-class in the top spot.
