Those looking for a prestigious full size luxury performance coupe, convertible, or four-door often consider the new BMW 8 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Both models have a lot to offer, but we at your BMW dealership in Los Angeles believe the BMW 8 Series simply offers more. Here's a brief comparison so you can make the best choice for you and yours:

V8 Performance Power

Both the BMW 8 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class offer optional V8 engines, but the BMW's TwinPower Turbo V8 offers you a more thrilling experience. The 4.4-liter V8 produces an immense 523 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, while the Mercedes-Benz S-Class' smaller 4.0-liter V8 trails behind with 463 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

Efficiency and Expense

Both the BMW 8 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class offer refined luxury seating for up to five passengers, standard six-cylinder engines and optional V8 engines, and a wealth of advanced features. The BMW 8 Series offers all this for a significantly lower investment, and its standard I6 engine offers 25 MPG combined in the BMW 840i Coupe, while the Mercedes-Benz S-Class' V6 motor only earns 22 MPG combined.


While the BMW 8 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class offer the same amount of whole vehicle and powertrain warranty coverage, BMW stands behind their finish and performance beyond what Mercedes-Benz offers. You'll enjoy 144 months and unlimited miles of anti-corrosion warranty coverage and unlimited mileage roadside assistance coverage for 48 months, while Mercedes-Benz only offers 48 months and 50,000 miles of anti-corrosion coverage and caps roadside assistance coverage at 50,000 miles.
