2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. BMW 7-Series

2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Kansas City

The Mercedes-Benz flagship sedan has long been among the most prestigious models in the entire automotive industry. For the 2015 model year, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class once again claims that flagship title, and it lives up to its billing. The epitome of sophistication in a full-size sedan, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class delivers a plush interior, a quiet ride, and no shortage of power. Although the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is widely considered one of the most spectacular models in its category, it does not go unchallenged. One of its chief competitors is the 2015 BMW 7-Series, which, like Mercedes-Benz S-Class, has developed a strong reputation within full-size luxury sedan community. 

As we compare the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs 2015 BMW 7-Series, note that we are specifically analyzing the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 4MATIC and BMW 750Li xDrive and that there are a number of variations within each sedan's respective ranges.

Key differences between Mercedes-Benz S550 and BMW 750Li

Across the board, the major performance ratings fall in favor of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan. With a slightly larger V-8 engine than the BMW 7-Series, horsepower ratings are about equal, with a few extra horses going to the S-Class. The S550's biturbo V-8 produces substantially more torque, however, helping the large sedan accelerate with more vigor. Pair that increased torque with a lighter curb weight and the S-Class feels a little quicker behind the wheel. 

While both full-size luxury sedans are filled with amenities that make the car as comfortable as most living rooms, the S-Class offers a few creature comforts not available in the 7-Series. For instance, a 24-speaker Burmester 3D surround sound system is available while the 750Li caps its offerings at a 16-speaker system. The front seat of the S-Class also supplies two standard LCD screens, adding to the intuitive design and modern feel of the sedan. 

Although both full-size luxury sedans are impressive on a number of levels, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2015 BMW 7-Series comparison favors the S-Class in a few key categories. Of course, the best way to compare the two is to get behind the wheel for yourself. Schedule a test drive in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan at Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City.
