2018 Mercedes-Benz S 560 4MATIC® vs 2018 BMW 740i
Sooner or later, there’s bound to come a time when you question your driving situation. You figured you’d be fine driving your average sedan, but then it hit you: I could be doing so much better. Let’s face it, your current car probably isn’t turning heads or making driving fun. Enter Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Step it up a notch and see what you could get from the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S 560 4MATIC® or 2018 BMW 740i.
New for 2018, Mercedes-Benz upgraded their previous S 550 trim to a 560 to get better power without sabotaging fuel efficiency. The top luxury cars never settle, so that’s why Mercedes-Benz implanted a 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 engine under the hood of their flagship sedan. The capabilities of the 740i are impressive as well but don’t quite match up as you’ll see in the comparisons below.

The 2018 S 560 4MATIC® comes with all the safety features you’d expect from a top-of-the-line luxury sedan such as Active Brake Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Lane Keep Assist and others. Where the S 560 4MATIC® earns its bread is in the Mercedes-Benz industry-first safety features it includes as standard. PRESAFE® is a system that will protect vehicle occupants during a collision by closing all windows, adjusting front headrests and tightening seatbelt pretensioners if it detects a crash may be imminent. To prevent a collision in the first place, ATTENTION ASSIST® is here to save the day. Also a Mercedes-Benz first, it works by using an intelligent array of sensors to monitor driver drowsiness. If it determines you’re too tired to drive, it will provide both a visual and audible warning to pull over and take a break.
Going above and beyond is what separates the S 560 4MATIC® from the 740i. If you’d like to see what else this new sedan has to offer, stop by World Wide Motors today and talk to one of our team members!
