Compelling Performance

Turbocharged power comes standard on both the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S 500 ad the 2017 BMW 740i, but that’s where the similarities end. Under the hood of the Mercedes-Benz model is a turbocharged 4.7L V8 engine, which delivers a whopping 449 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque via a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Meanwhile, the Lexus sedan runs on a smaller turbocharged 3.0L V6 machine, producing just 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic transmission. These figures alone prove the Mercedes-Benz luxury sedan outperforms the competition.
