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

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7-Series are flagship sedans, so you can expect many of the same features on either model. For example, both come standard with air suspension, leather seating, authentic wood trim, power front seats with memory, navigation, and telematics. Nevertheless, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a benchmark in its class for a reason; the following are standard on the S 450 but not the BMW 7-series: 

  • 12.3-inch display with a touchpad controller 
  • Energizing Comfort Control 
  • Air Balance cabin fragrance system
  • Android Auto™

BMW 7-Series vs. Mercedes-Benz S-Class: Driver Assists 

Kingman drivers in search of a safety-first sedan are sure to appreciate the standard driver assists on the S-Class and 7-Series. Both include features like a rearview camera, forward collision warning, blind spot detection, and lane departure warning. You won’t find any of the following on the BMW 7-Series — but you will on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class: 

  • PRESAFE® Sound: The BMW 7-Series gets a pre-collision system but doesn’t include anything like PRESAFE® Sound. This system plays a “pink noise” through the audio system to protect your hearing in the event of an accident. 
  • Car-to-X Communication: This unique feature allows Mercedes-Benz S-Class drivers in and around Enterprise to share weather alerts and traffic updates. 
  • MAGIC VISION CONTROL®: Clean your windows without obscuring your view, thanks to laser-cut holes in the wipers that distribute washing fluid right in front of the blade.
