How Mercedes-Benz Gives You More: Compare The 2020 S-Class vs. The 2020 BMW 7 Series

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the luxury sedan by which all others must be measured. Positioned at the pinnacle of the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the S-Class is the last word in luxurious transportation. It's led the way for decades, debuting dozens of features that now come standard on rivals from other brands as well as the rest of the Mercedes-Benz lineup. You can experience the future of transportation today at Mercedes Benz of Temecula during your test drive! On this page, we'll even show you how it outperforms one of its closest rivals: the 2020 BMW 7 Series. They're both exciting German luxury cars, but only one has the Mercedes-Benz star leading the way. And that makes all the difference.

With more comfort for rear seat passengers, the 2020 S-Class is a better choice than the 7 Series for chauffeur and limo duties.

2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2020 BMW 7 Series: Design

Available only as a full-size sedan, the 2020 BMW 7 Series looks more assertive and overstyled compared to the effortless elegance of the S-Class. On the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-class, which is also available as a slick two-door coupe or a sun-seeking two-door cabriolet, you get the refinement you expect from a full-size luxury car. The Mercedes-Benz hood ornament leading the way further signifies the luxury you're sure to enjoy inside.

Both luxury sedans feature premium appointments like full-LED lighting, soft-close doors and a hands-free power trunk lid. That said, some standard and available features give the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class a luxury advantage. It comes standard with a power rear sun shade for additional privacy, which you'll have to pay extra for on the 2020 BMW 7 Series. And only the S-Class offers an available refrigerated compartment in the rear seats so cold beverages are always close at hand. There's always cause for celebration in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class!

Soft-touch, premium materials abound inside the legendary Mercedes-Bens S-Class

2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2020 BMW 7 Series: Features

Premium materials abound inside the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and they find their way to places overlooked by BMW. For instance, the 2020 BMW 7 Series offers a leather-wrapped steering wheel with optional heating, but the S-Class provides a heated steering wheel wrapped in supple, genuine Nappa leather with stylish real wood accents. There are a huge variety of woods and colors to choose from, so you get the look that suits you perfectly.

We know that exclusivity matters when choosing your next luxury car, but that shouldn't mean excluding Android owners from the latest smartphone features. The 2020 BMW 7 Series comes with Apple CarPlay™, but Android Auto™ isn't available at all. Both systems are standard on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class so everyone can pair their smartphones, no matter what team you play for.

Despite its elegant, effortless look, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class can give you a thrilling drive, too.

2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2020 BMW 7 Series: Performance

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class gives you nearly 30 more horsepower and almost 40 more lb-ft of torque compared to the 2020 BMW 7 Series! That means you've always got more power on tap, whether merging on the highway or surging away from a stoplight.

And in addition to more power, you get the very same suspension and drivetrain technologies for precise handling, effortless control and a smooth ride. Both vehicles come with a standard air suspension with active damping control, so every road feels freshly-paved. Both vehicles are rear-wheel drive as standard, and all-wheel drive is an optional upgrade. Selectable drive modes give you more responsiveness or a more comfortable cruise on demand. And while the 2020 BMW 7 Series has an eight-speed transmission, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with a nine-speed transmission for an even quieter, more economical cruise.

With a fully digital dashboard and huge center touchscreen, the S-Class puts more information and more control at your fingertips than ever before.

2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2020 BMW 7 Series: Safety

Nothing goes untouched by Mercedes-Benz innovation. Not even the windshield wipers. On the BMW sedan, you get ordinary rain-sensing automatic wipers with typical spray nozzles. Instead, MAGIC VISION CONTROL on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class integrades dozens of tiny spray nozzles into the wiper housing -- so, as your wipers travel across the windshield, they clean it seamlessly without the temporary blindness and inconsistent coverage of ordinary wipers. That's a feature you just won't find on the 2020 BMW 7 Series.

And to help you be informed and alert, the 2020 S-Class comes standard with ATTENTION ASSIST. This system can monitor your behavior and detect signs of drowsiness. If it does, you'll get a friendly dashboard alert so you can take the safest action. A driver attention monitoring system like this isn't found on the 2020 BMW 7 Series either.
