If you’re looking for a luxury saloon, odds are that you’ll be perfectly happy with an S-Class. But while the big Merc does tick all the boxes, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s your best option.
As far as exterior designs are concerned, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Inside, however, according to this reviewer, it’s the A8 that stands out most thanks to its amazing levels of interior quality and on-board technology.
The issue with the S-Class is that some of the materials don’t feel as good as they look, while with the 7-Series, it’s pretty much the other way around. The Audi therefore takes the gold in this category, with the 7-Series also getting a medal for having the best infotainment system.
If you’re a backseat passenger, there’s not much between these three cars, as you’ll feel supremely comfortable regardless of which one you opt for. Same goes for boot space.
As for driving dynamics and overall road manners, the new A8 yet again came out on top by being extremely smooth, good to drive and just as quiet as the S-Class, if not more so. So, who wins this test? Well, what do you think?
