When it comes to top-of-the-line luxury, there are not many options for drivers to choose from. The two that sit at the top of the latter are the 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs 2016 BMW 7 Series. Both sedans offer the latest in automotive technology, making them beyond comfortable, outlandishly powerful, and extremely intelligent. But what sets them apart? With such a large investment, you want to make sure you aren't throwing your money down the drain. Do you go for the rich history and reliability of the Mercedes-Benz or the classic look of the BMW?
Both cars have many similarities right down to the horsepower, which has a range of only four ponies in favor of the S-Class. This is offset by the heavier curb weight of the S-Class, but where the real tipping point lies is in the power to efficiency ratio of the S-Class. Even with a bigger engine, more power, and more overall weight, the S-Class manages to achieve better fuel-efficiency estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency.
The Mercedes-Benz comes standard with a 4.7 biturbo V8 engine. With two turbochargers working together simultaneously and a 7-speed automatic transmission, Mercedes-Benz is able to produce over 500 lb-ft of torque, beating out the BMW by almost 40 lbs. This difference makes the 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs 2016 BMW 7 Series comparison an easy one. Both vehicles give drivers the most comfortable experience an automobile can offer, and they both come standard with the latest driver assistance features and intelligent safety systems, so the extra power and efficiency gives you more value for your dollar.
