2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class VS 2018 Lexus LS
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2018 Lexus LS: Performance
The 2018 Lexus LS features an energetic twin-turbo V6 engine that gets OK gas mileage. It provides a cushioned ride, and it handles better than you might expect of a car this size. The LS features a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 416 horsepower. It’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. This engine delivers plenty of power, and it does so with smooth, linear precision. Acceleration is also decent for a car this size. Rear-wheel drive is standard in the LS, and all-wheel drive is available. You won’t be able to confuse this luxury cruiser with a sports sedan.
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2018 Lexus LS: Feature Comparison
The attractive 2018 Lexus LS feels like more than just another luxury vehicle. Both rows of seats are comfortable, though some competitors’ seats are roomier. Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, pedestrian detection, and forward collision warning. Standard features in the LS include push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 10-speaker audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, *Bluetooth®, a USB port, a moonroof, and an infotainment system with a 12.3-inch screen, navigation, and the Remote Touch Interface, which responds to smartphone-style inputs and includes handwriting recognition. However, the infotainment system is more complicated than many rivals’ systems, and the touchpad controller can be frustrating to use. Adjusting settings can also be tedious, particularly if you’re doing so while on the go.
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2018 Lexus LS: Overall Comparison
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the model against which all other super luxury cars are measured. The Lexus LS just can’t compete. The S-Class is Mercedes-Benz flagship sedan, and no expense is spared. You’ll find unparalleled levels of interior quality along with practically all the standard and available features you can name. Referring to the S-Class with a “luxury” moniker may not even do it justice. And if that weren’t enough, the S-Class has several powerful engine choices, capable handling, and an incredibly supple ride.
