How Mercedes-Benz Gives You More: Compare The 2020 S-Class vs. The 2020 Audi A8
The ultimate symbol of luxury, technology and exclusivity, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a bona fide automotive icon. For decades, the S-Class has blazed the trail for all other luxury cars to follow. Indeed virtually 3every new technology that becomes an automotive standard first appeared on the S-Class. That level of innovation and excitement remains today. While competitors like the 2020 Audi A8 may try to capture your attention with gimmicky, overwrought styling, you just can't compete with the driving experience, interior refinement and advanced technology of a new Mercedes-Benz. We'll prove it to you by comparing both models side-by-side below!
2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2020 Audi A8: Design
The 2020 Audi A8 hopes to dazzle you with flashy exterior lighting and gadgetry. Which is fine. But if you want something with a stately look and upmarket appeal, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is second to none. It has LED exterior lights, too, as well as a refined, elegant look. The cherry on top? The Mercedes-Benz hood ornament that announces your arrival like nothing else.
The trunk of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is larger than that of the Audi A8, so it's a batter companion for weekend getaways and long road journeys. You can also get it in two-door coupe or two-door convertible styles for an even sportier appearance. And it also comes standard with the smooth, sporty response of rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is an available option on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but it's the only drivetrain you can get on the 2020 Audi A8.
2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2020 Audi A8: Features
Both of these cars are fully-loaded with luxurious, top-of-the-line features, but more of them come standard on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class for peerless comfort and convenience. One such advantage of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class over the 2020 Audi A8 is the standard 64-color LED interior lighting. It can react to the climate controls to set the mood, or you can simply pick your favorite color. Colored ambient lighting is an optional extra on the 2020 Audi A8.
And while both these cars can serve as ultra-luxe commuters, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is better equipped for chauffeur and town car duty. It offers items you won't find on any 2020 Audi A8, such as a refrigerated compartment in the rear cabin, a rear seat wireless device charging pad and rear seatbelt airbags which can better protect rear-seat passengers in the event of a collision.
2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2020 Audi A8: Performance
With nearly 30 additional horsepower and almost 40 lb-ft of torque over the 2020 Audi A8, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class provides a more confident drive at the entry level. Beyond this power difference, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class provides all the same performance gear! Both vehicles come standard with a turbocharged V6 engine, an adaptive air suspension with dynamic damping control, selectable drive modes and automatic engine start and stop. And since the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission, instead of an eight-speed like the Audi sedan, the Mercedes-Benz offers more gear ratios for a more efficient, quieter cruise. Of course, you just can't quantify all the performance advantages that come with a car tuned by the world-class Mercedes-Benz engineers. You'll just have to stop by for a test drive and experience them in person.
2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2020 Audi A8: Safety
Our goal is to help you clearly see that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a better choice than its Audi rival. One reason it's true is the S-Class helps you see clearly with MAGIC VISION CONTROL. In lieu of traditional windshield spray nozzles, every 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-class features MAGIC VISION CONTROL, integrating the spray nozzles into the wiper blades themselves. This ensures superior wiper performance, and eliminates the temporarily obscured vision that can be caused by typical wipers. This feature is an exclusive Mercedes-Benz innovation.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class also comes with ATTENTION ASSIST technology that can alert you if it detects that the driver appears distracted or sleepy. A driver's attention monitor isn't available at all on the 2020 Audi A8, either.
