2018 Mercedes-Benz S 560 vs 2018 Maserati Quattroporte

This round of comparisons has two brands up in an interesting head-to-head matchup. What makes it interesting is the fact that Mercedes-Benz and Maserati rarely get compared with each other, mostly because they sell to different markets. They do offer a lot of similar comparisons though, and that’s why we’re bringing up some talking points between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S 560 vs 2018 Maserati Quattroporte.

Let’s look at performance first. With a bit of a steeper price tag, you’d probably also expect the Quattroporte to also perform better under the hood, right? Not exactly. As you’ll notice in the table below, the S 560 edges out its rival pretty handily in areas such as horsepower, torque, transmission speeds, 0 to 60 time, and more. Take a look for yourself!
