2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan vs 2018 BMW 7 Series Sedan

2018 S-Class Sedan in Grey vs 2018 BMW 7 Series in White

The flagship S-Class Sedan received a complete redesign for the 2018 model year--further raising the bar for the luxury sedan segment with advancements in technology, safety, and comfort. Available in four model options, the 2018 S-Class lineup is truly a stunning one. To highlight the new model, we created a 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan vs 2018 BMW 7 Series Sedan comparison.

Our comparison focuses on the 2018 S-Class and 7 Series base models--the S 450 and the 740i. Both are priced in the $80,000-range, but the S 450's slightly higher starting price indicates that it has more to offer both under the hood and inside the cabin. Although the coupes sport similarly-sized engines, the S 450 delivers 42 more horsepower than the 740i. The models are matched in terms of 0-60 MPH acceleration time. The 740i is slightly more fuel efficient than the S 450--but are you looking for pure thrill or gas-saving potential?
