Remixes sounding better than originals is largely subjective, but there are a few examples where the remix received more attention than the original.

Zwette's edit of Tom Odell - Another Love is the first that comes to mind. It's that 2013 deep house track that became HUGE during its time and now has 510M views (the original has only half that). It probably helped that the uploader used Cara Delevingne's face.

Robin Schulz's remix of Prayer in C was everywhere on the radio in 2014 and now has ~600M views, but the original version barely has 2.2M views. The original was a fine indie track, but the deep house version won the public's attention.

A-trak's remix of Heads Will Roll became part of popular culture when it was featured in the movie Project X, and years later it was also the subject of a meme. The original is famous on its own, but the A-trak remix is several times more popular.

M6 - Fade 2 Black (W&W Remix)

sounds better than the original mix, which (as far as I remember) received more attention because of Armin

Markus Schulz feat. Dauby - Perfect (Agnelli & Nelson Remix)

sounds better than the original mix, which I couldn't find on Youtube (apart from a mislabeled A&N Remix and a 1:30 preview).

Neal Scarborough - Kanya (Andy Blueman Remix)

sounds better than the original mix

I just had to post this one then!
This is the original of the Vengaboys - Kiss (When the Sun Don't Shine)

But the Airscape remix is mindblowing!
And definitely one of my favourite trance tracks ever!
First time I heard it was in Tiesto his 'Energy 2000' set :D

Arnej - Dust In The Wind (Leon Bolier Mix - Arnej Rework)

sounds better than the original

Fun fact:
Oceania - Always (Mike Shiver Remix)

sounds almost the same as the original as it's basically an edit/respray/whatever you call it

I guess they should've picked one of the two versions and release it along the massive Stoneface & Terminal remix (which I still prefer out of these three, though the original is also very good):
