Compare the Mercedes-Benz S-Class
to the Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series

Sleek luxury sedans aren't always the easiest models to explore. When you put yourself in the driver's seat of one, you might find that you don't want to leave! That's what it's like when test driving the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Each model comes equipped with exciting features and extreme comforts that meet your needs everywhere you go.

While the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan is a favorite of ours, we know there are other options available. With competition from the Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series, you might be unsure which model is right for you. Check out our comparison below and decide for yourself which one best fits your drive!

Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. Audi A8

When it comes to your choices under the hood, the S-Class sedan keeps things simple with one engine option to the Audi A8's three engine options. However, the S-Class comes equipped with a more powerful standard engine, making it the right choice for those who love to enjoy the morning commute. The Mercedes-Benz sedan employs a 3.0-liter inline-6 turbocharged engine with EQ Boost to deliver 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. The Audi A8 also has a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, but it only produces 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.

Keeping your sedan equipped with the latest features is easy in both sedans, but only the Mercedes-Benz S-Class prioritizes innovative technology above that of the other models like the Audi A8. The S-Class sedan comes standard with a 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. You can personalize your vehicle settings up to 800 different ways, from music programming to seat comfort. Using the Mercedes me connect PIN identifies your profile, but you can also use biometric authentication to confirm who you are! While the Audi A8 has some nice features, it can't match the screen size or innovations that are standard to the S-Class sedan!

Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. BMW 7 Series

Looking for ease of access and convenience while you're on the road? Both luxury sedans have plenty of it, but the Mercedes-Benz S-Class takes your journey one step further with more of every feature! Whether you're taking advantage of the wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity through the 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen or you're utilizing the heated and ventilated front seats, equipped with leather upholstery and 12-way power-adjustable front seats with memory and massage functions, the S-Class sedan has what you need. The BMW 7 Series offers similar features, but they aren't the same quality, size, or convenience, meaning your ride will be just a bit less luxurious.

Are you someone who loves to drive? You'll probably prefer the Mercedes-Benz sedan to the BMW 7 Series! The Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged engine that pumps out 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque - compared to the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine, which only manages 335 horsepower and 331 pound-feet, respectively. Your control and handling are much better with the 4MATIC® all-wheel drive setup standard to the S-Class sedan - the BMW 7 Series will make you upgrade and pay more for its xDrive AWD feature. If you want performance and capability, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan is the right one for you!
