Mercedes-Benz E-Class
The E-class more than lives up to traditional Mercedes values

The E-Class is a refined and relaxing return to old Mercedes qualities

has to be the E-CLASS Merc for the award it represents a major step for Merc, they are getting back to there best now after years of poor cars. The E-class and C- class are 2 of the best mercs I have seen for ages.

As the 911 GT3 has a real gearbox, I'd vote for it.

Surely the most appropriate winner on all levels is the Toyota Prius. It employs the best future technology, is affordable to the many (unlike the Mercedes) and is enjoyable to drive whilst being relaxed and economical.
