The readers of the specialist magazine “Off-Road” voted the Unimog “Off-Road Vehicle of the Year” with 54.9 percent of the votes â that’s even a few more than last year.
Thus the “Universal-MotorgerÃ¤t” won first place in the special vehicles category for the 17th time in a row.
The extreme off-road Unimog is highly popular with globetrotters as a basic vehicle for traveling on and off paved roads, and in its lower-weight version with only 7.49 tonnes GVW it can also be driven with a passenger car driver’s license (Grade 3).
39,211 votes were received for the poll with readers voting for 251 vehicles in 13 categories.
The Off-Road Award has a long tradition: it is 39 years since the readers of the Munich-based “Off-Road” magazine first voted for the most popular off-road vehicle (1982).
