2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2017 BMW 7 Series
2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
2017 BMW 7 Series
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the 2017 BMW 7 Series come in at the top of the segment when it comes to large luxury sedans, but just because they stand at the front of the pack does not mean they are equal to one another. A careful comparison reveals that the latest S-Class lineup offers much more of what drivers expect from an ultra-premium vehicle, including major horsepower and enticing features. Learn about the points of departure below, then visit Mercedes-Benz of Charleston to experience this stunning sedan in person.
The 2017 S-Class comes standard with a turbocharged 4.7L V8 that produces 449 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and jumps from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. If that is not enough power for you to conquer the roads of Huntington, four other engine options are available including a turbocharged 6.0L V12 that delivers a hair-raising 612 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. The 2017 7 Series comes standard with a turbocharged 3.0L V6 that delivers just 320 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Three other engines are available, but even its most powerful 601-hp engine falls short of the performance offered by the S-Class.
You have lots of choices in terms of body style when you go for the S-Class, because it is available as either a sedan, coupe, or convertible. The 2017 BMW 7 Series is only available as a sedan, forcing you to keep the top up even when the weather is gorgeous in Beckley.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class feels like the finest vehicle on the road thanks to features like 19-inch wheels, 12-way power-adjustable front seats, and a pair of 12.3-inch display screens. The 2017 BMW 7 Series doesn’t quite meet that gold standard with its 18-inch wheels, 10-way front seats, and single 10.3-inch display screen. To put it simply, the 7 Series can’t keep up with the intricate handcrafted, LED-lit interior of the S-Class.
