Two of the most popular executive cars are the BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. But which model of luxury sedan is the right fit for you? Here's how the two titans compare:

Safety Systems and Features

The 2020 BMW 7 Series comes standard with driver assistance technologies like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. The BMW 7 Series will also activate the brakes after a collision to help prevent secondary accidents. Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning are optional on the S-Class, and post-collision braking is not included.

The maximum fuel efficiency rating for the S-Class is 22 MPG combined for the Mercedes-Benz S 450, while the BMW 740i offers 24 MPG combined and the BMW 745e xDrive offers 56 MPGe.

Powertrains

The new BMW 7 Series is available with a new hybrid drivetrain in the BMW 745e xDrive Plug-In Hybrid. This powerful sedan offers 394 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque along with high fuel economy thanks to the pairing of its turbo-charged I6 engine and electric motor. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has no hybrid option available.

Pricing

You'll be more than pleased with the BMW 7 Series when it comes to pricing. The starting MSRP for the 2020 BMW 7 Series is $86,450, while the Mercedes-Benz S-Class starts at $91,250. That's a steep difference, especially considering the BMW offers more efficiency and safety features.
