Enjoy the video. IMO, the BMW looks much better in the flesh than the other 2...

Ive seen this video. Good points imo. But as much as i dont like how the g11 looks, id still probably take it over the 2.

Although i dont like how the S8 looks either, i found this video today. 3,4 its pretty unbelievable for a car this size, even being the S8 plus. The alpine b7 has more or less the same power and AWD, but i doubt it makes those times.



Crazy stuff.

7 looks sporty, S looks classy and the A8 looks the same as it did 20 years ago.

/er has a truly nice athletic design in comparison to f01. I truly like everything about the car( maybe not the kidney light thing but that“s sorta ok ). I must admit I have thing for current a8. I find that car looks still nice if a bit dull and am a fan of interior especially the “admirals lever`

I'd take the Merc if it had an i6 but alas, G11 is a nicer pick for me

The Merc, everytime. It's the very definition of this vehicle class.

Couldn't agree with you more. Especially in this new generation. The new S class is ages ahead of the G11 in comfort, looks, interior and technology.

Yep, I always take the S over the 7, it really is the class leader in this sector, and the sales speaks for itself too.

But for mid size (5 vs E) and small (3 vs C) cars, I take the BMW any day.

As much as I love BMW - The Benz is significantly ahead of the 7 in terms of style and luxury-agreed it's the class leader. Benz S Class>BMW/Audi

I don't understand why BMW made the heigh of rear seats so high that it felt like sitting on a boost seat.

Think it depends where you live and your budget, I work in central London and most S-Classes I see are min-cabs or private hire. I've yet to see a G11 with a green private hire badge in the rear windscreen so a big tick if you splashing out on one I don't want to be mistaken for an uber .

Just got my G11 but did try the S350d AMG as a comparision but the feel of luxury and look for me the G11 won!

That said I think if you took the S500 and ticked all the options (c£10-150k) it would be the luxury car to take. But spending more modest sums (£80k) the G11 for me

The new A8 is debuting next year. It's starting production in 2018 so it'll catch up to the current competition

BMW has a very good range of diesel engines for Europe.
M760LI and Alpina B7 are some interesting petrol versions too
Next year we'll see the LCI S Class and the new A8. BMW really needs a very good 8 Series to keep its image at a high level with such good rivals!

The MB is posh. My wife put it this way some years ago: "I'd rather be a passenger in a Mercedes and I'd rather drive a BMW." IMHO that goes across the Board and I have had C Class, E class and S class and 3, 5, 7 (and 8) BMW. Mercedes is a great cruiser. The 7 series is no sports car but it handles like a smaller car, especially with integrated active steering. The Audi is dated and I've had A4 and A6 but not A8 (though I have been a passenger in an A8). Audi is a good car too and you wouldn't go wrong with any of the three but to me there is more smile factor in the BMW.
