2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs 2017 Land Rover Range Rover
Every once and a while, two cars from completely different walks of life find their way onto the top of your shopping list. For those looking for a luxurious interior with all kinds of gadgets and entertainment options, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Land Rover Range Rover are perfect examples. These unlikely competitors are tested side by side every year because they offer luxury and comfort, but which one does it better?
In most vehicle comparisons, the engine is one of the most important aspects. Because these cars are so different, the only thing you need to know about both vehicles is that you will have more than enough power to get you onto the freeway in style. They are both pretty efficient, too! Really, the only difference in the way the two vehicles drive has to do with the drivetrain. The Mercedes-Benz comes standard with rear-wheel drive, which is better for driving on pavement. The Range Rover is only available with full-time all-wheel drive, which tends to be a waste of energy when you aren't off-road.
One of the classic associations with the S-Class is the lounge behind the front seats. The Range Rover may have more cargo space with the back seats folded down, but the S-Class pampers every passenger with leather and space. It is the perfect vehicle for business transportation because it has fold-out trays, a chilled beverage cooler, and a power sun-shade, all in the back seat. Overall, the riding comfort and attention to detail is much higher in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, especially if off-road trails aren't on the agenda. The Range Rover does have two advantages, but they have to do with cargo capacity and affordability, which typically aren't huge concerns in the luxury vehicle community.
