Whether it is BMW 7-series or Mercedes-Benz S-class series, both of these long-wheelbase models are designed with comfort and luxury. Moreover, these models come with plush interiors, hi-tech equipment and amazing ride quality. The all-new Mercedes-Benz S-class is an upgraded version of the former version with a new engine and more technicalities. However, the facelift is a major take in the BMW 7-series. Both these luxury rivals have been competing for decades now, so let us find out which one stands out.
Here are some of the parameters on the basis of which one can compare and figure out which one is better.
|PARAMETERS||BMW 7-Series||Mercedes-Benz S-Class|
|Engine||3-litre 6cyl diesel||3-litre 6cyl diesel|
|Transmission||9-speed automatic, rear-wheel drive||8-speed automatic, rear-wheel drive|
|0-60mph||6.1 seconds||6.2 seconds|
Mercedes Benz S-class offers ultimate comfort, latest features and premium interior but somewhere its interior is not as refreshing as BMW’s while BMW offers excellent performance, impressive handling, interior and agility but is not as comfortable as Mercedes. Along with this, it has poor residual values and fuel economy. So, both Mercedes and BMW own their own sets of pros and cons and ultimately it depends on the buyer what he is looking for.
