It’s the 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. BMW 7 Series comparison—a luxury sedan showdown for the ages! They both make an impact on the streets of Peoria, AZ. The question is, which one has the influence that you want?
At Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead, we’re here to answer that question. Let’s see which luxury SUV comes out on top!
These sedans are speedsters at heart. The 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes standard with a 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine that generates 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. The 3.0L TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder of the BMW 7 Series is similar, but its 335 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque falls short of the 2022 S-Class.
Both models offer sport-tuned performance features, including Rear-Axle Steering. At low speeds, it adds more maneuverability, so you can rip around tight city streets with ease. At high speeds, it adds more agility and precise control.
When a storm rolls in, these two sedans thrive on slick streets thanks to their all-wheel-drive systems. They constantly adjust the power being sent to each wheel, so you can enjoy sure-footed traction. What’s the difference? The 4MATIC® all-wheel drive comes standard with the 2022 S-Class, while xDrive all-wheel drive is only an available option with the 7 Series.
It’ll be easy to stay connected behind the wheel of either sedan. They come with a litany of innovative features to help you stay in touch with the world around you. You’ll have access to:
Stop! Leave that key in your pocket—both sedans offer keyless entry. Once you step inside, you’ll be greeted by the leather upholstery wrapped around massaging front seats. While the massaging seats come standard in the 2022 S-Class, you’ll need to upgrade to a higher trim in the 2022 7 Series for the same luxury.
Rough day at the office? Let your sore muscles melt away. If you need to set the mood, only the 2022 S-Class offers ambient lighting with a whopping 64 color choices.
You’ll have a better view of all your infotainment in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class thanks to the standard 12.8-inch touchscreen center display. The 10.25-inch central information display in the BMW 7 Series just doesn’t compare.
If safety is at the top of your list, it’s hard to go wrong with either of these luxury sedans. They’ll have your back in a variety of situations.
These two SUVs share several safety features, such as:
PRESAFE® PLUS and the Active Protection System are two similar systems. They act in the moments before a collision to keep you and your passengers safe. They’ll automatically tighten the seatbelts and close the windows, but the 2022 S-Class and its PRESAFE® system goes one step further by adjusting the front-passenger seat.
You’ll look like a parking pro in either sedan. They come with Active Parking Assist that can identify open spots at low speeds. Once you confirm, it’ll steer the vehicle right in.
The competition was close, but in the end, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class edges out its competitor with superior interior technology and optimal performance. It’s the luxury car you’ve been dreaming about in Peoria, AZ.
