ChiefAzubuike:

Go through my post on page 1. Check out the 3 pictures of the Lexus I posted.

Bro let's be honest, Mercedes Benz is a good brand but the hype in this part of the world is something else. Like someone said, Benz is for people who can't afford luxury but want something 30% close to luxury.

There are one thousand and one car models out there I'd rather die for. People say Benz get fne interior. Same specs of interior you go see for Honda sef.

OMG! you dey compare Benz and Honda interior?? Are you for real?? Do justice with pictures. And compare same year models.

about rolls royce, it is a good car no doubt but it is more about elegance than strength, that is why it is not driven by presidents

LMAO... Kings and gods kor...

Yes a Maybach is also an Sclass but with a different pricetag and spec... Oga... If you don't have both an Sclass and a Rolls-Royce to compare toe to toe, don't bother comparing. Okay let's do this.... I hope you are Ready to read sha... Lego...



Safety:

The S-Class’ pre-crash front seatbelts will tighten automatically in the event the vehicle detects an impending crash, improving protection against injury significantly. The Phantom doesn’t offer pre-crash pretensioners.

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Mercedes S-Class are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Rolls-Royce Phantom doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

The rear seatbelts optional on the S-Class inflate when a collision is detected, helping to spread crash forces over a much larger area of the body and limiting head and neck movement. This can help prevent spinal and internal injuries. The Phantom doesn’t offer inflatable seatbelts.

The S-Class offers all-wheel drive to maximize traction under poor conditions, especially in ice and snow. The Phantom doesn’t offer all-wheel drive.

The S-Class has standard mbrace, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Phantom doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

Both the S-Class and the Phantom have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, available night vision systems and around view monitors.


Warranty:

The S-Class’ corrosion warranty is 1 year longer than the Phantom’s (5 vs. 4 years).

There are almost 11 times as many Mercedes dealers as there are Rolls-Royce dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the S-Class’ warranty.

Engine:

The AMG S 63’s standard 4.0 turbo V8 produces 40 more horsepower (603 vs. 563) than the Phantom’s 6.8 turbo V12. The AMG S 65/Maybach S 650’s standard 6.0 turbo V12 produces 58 more horsepower (621 vs. 563) and 74 lbs.-ft. more torque (738 vs. 664) than the Phantom’s 6.8 turbo V12.


Fuel Economy and Range:

On the EPA test cycle the AMG S 65/Maybach S 650 RWD V12 gets better fuel mileage than the Phantom (13 city/22 hwy vs. 12 city/19 hwy).

The S 550e can drive on battery power alone for up to 18.6 miles. The Phantom must run its internal combustion engine to move.

An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the S-Class 560/63’s fuel efficiency. The Phantom doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.

Regenerative brakes improve the S-Class Hybrid’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Phantom doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the S-Class’ engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Phantom doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

Transmission:

A nine-speed automatic is available on the Mercedes S-Class, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only an eight-speed automatic is available for the Phantom.

Brakes and Stopping:

The S-Class S 63/65 offers optional heat-treated ceramic brake rotors, which last ten to twenty times as long as conventional cast iron rotors, don’t rust, don’t fade during repeated high speed braking, and their lighter weight contribute to better braking, handling and acceleration. The Phantom doesn’t offer ceramic brake rotors.


Suspension and Handling:

The S-Class’ drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Phantom doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For better maneuverability, the S AMG S 65’s turning circle is 4.8 feet tighter than the Phantom’s (38.1 feet vs. 42.9 feet). The S 450/560’s turning circle is 4.8 feet tighter than the Phantom EWB’s (40.4 feet vs. 45.2 feet)

Chassis:

The Mercedes S-Class may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 850 to 1300 pounds less than the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The S-Class is shorter than the Phantom, making the S-Class easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

For excellent aerodynamics, the S-Class has standard flush composite headlights. The Phantom has recessed headlights that spoil its aerodynamic shape and create extra drag.


Cargo Capacity
To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the S-Class’ available trunk can be opened and closed just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. The Phantom doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its trunk, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.


Ergonomics:

The S-Class has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Phantom doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

Heated windshield washer fluid is standard on the S-Class to defrost the washer nozzles and quickly clear ice and frost from the windshield without scraping. The Phantom doesn’t offer heated windshield washer fluid.

To better shield the driver and front passenger’s vision, the S-Class has standard dual-element sun visors that can block glare from two directions simultaneously. The Phantom doesn’t offer secondary sun visors.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the S-Class has standard extendable sun visors. The Phantom doesn’t offer extendable visors.

On extremely cold winter days, the S-Class’ optional heated steering wheel provides comfort, allowing the driver to steer safely and comfortably before the car heater warms up. The Phantom doesn’t offer a heated steering wheel.

The S-Class’ optional Active Parking Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Phantom doesn’t offer an automated parking system.

Did you also know that based on Consumer Reports, recommendation goes to the the Mercedes S-Class over any Rolls Royce based on reliability, safety and performance overall?
You finish work jare. Case closed grin

The Emperor is a nice machine but still is a glorified upgraded s63 amg. if this is the best benz out there then they still have a long way to go. I still find the brabus R900 outrageous cos it's not only loud but should be left for speedsters and suvs, who needs all that power when going for an executive drive. not to take away class and elegance from benz but if it's by specs and limited editions there is no one who does it better than Rolls Rolls in the automobile industry. Still in doubt? checkout Rolls Royce Sweptail, there is only one in the world and it goes with a price tag of a whooping 12m usd which makes it one of the most expensive cars in the world today . the average rolls Royce Phantom comes with a v12 and over 6.7L engine For specs and performance checkout ..Roll Royce conquistadors series, rolls Royce black badge series, rolls Royce mansory series ...and just so you know according to statistics over 65% of Rolls Royces produced since inception of rolls Royce cars in 1904 are still in use till today... tell me of any other manufacturer in the world that has such legendary stats .. benz builds for mortal men, rolls Royce builds for Kings and gods. you can never get the excellent riding experience you get with a rolls Royce from any other car. and as you are aware one Phantom will buy at least 3 S class benz


Go and read more on Maybach Exelero. it cost $8 million and if inflation is considered it will rise up to $10 point something million.
FYI Rolls Royce swept tail is a one-off car, i.e it's out of the market, it's a car produced based on a customer's demand (it's a customized car)

I use a cc 2014 nodel...it's very roomy at including the rear seat so I don't understand what u mean by the back seat being crappy.

I travel to the east at least once every quarter with the cc and will comfortably dust any e-class along the ore-benin expressway.

Performance wise don't pitch the CC against any Benz bro, that car is one of the most underpowered cars out there, even the low powered C250 still best the CC.
A 2006 W203 C350 will disgrace your CC on the road, the CC is stylish but not carved for performance.

I mean there are so many car brands out there. I mean exotic car brands Benz can't even compete with asides maybe the latest wagon models. But why is there the sudden craze for Benz ? A car you can't even mention where you say dodge, koenigsegg , Lamborghini, maseratti, Aston Martin etc. Those ones are in a class of their own, let me call them category one. category 2 then we call the likes of Chrysler, Porsche etc. Then category 3 maybe we can call whatever Benz model alongside models like Lexus and Hyundai.

It makes me remember the blackberry craze of those years and the way they swept the African brain aside. Every nigerian thought literally believed blackberry was the best thing in the world.

Performance wise don't pitch the CC against any Benz bro, that car is one of the most underpowered cars out there, even the low powered C250 still best the CC.
A 2006 W203 C350 will disgrace your CC on the road, the CC is stylish but not carved for performance.

Have u ever driven a VW cc?
On what basis are you comparing both cars?

I'm talking based on experience. ..I have driven both cars...and I prefer VW to e-class....not even a c-class...

I own the 2012 CC as well as a 2011 A6, the A6 is way faster than the CC and yes the CC is super slow when compared with E350 or even a 2006 W203 C350.
Except the 4motion trim which you hardly see around

expensive education that you get to pay till you die,expensive housing(for those that wanna live outta the suburbs),healthcare,IRS,unambitious,easy access to petty credit makes an average american a poor and tasteless person.
Europe on the other hand(except France) is everything opposite and they don't get to pay import and luxury tax on it(the benz) and high maintenance fees by fat dumb american technicians!
Hope i made myself clear.

This is why people up there said you are ignorant Oga.

You don't compare a 2009 C300 with a 2018 Lexus Es350. You compare the 2018s with their counterparts! The pricing alone sets them apart!

If you get into the E550 or even the C350 not talking about the C400 now, you'd know there's class and more class.

Mind you, you are Speaking with someone who has driven both cars.

If you are angry with the recent hype, you have to understand its only a good product you can hype. Go try hype Hyundai na...BTW you had to call that useless calculator dashboard screen vehicle along side Benz? God forgive you for such blasphemy sir

This table you are shaking sha has a lot of people on it oo

I mean there are so many car brands out there. I mean exotic car brands Benz can't even compete with asides maybe the latest wagon models. But why is there the sudden craze for Benz ? A car you can't even mention where you say dodge, koenigsegg , Lamborghini, maseratti, Aston Martin etc. Those ones are in a class of their own, let me call them category one. category 2 then we call the likes of Chrysler, Porsche etc. Then category 3 maybe we can call whatever Benz model alongside models like Lexus and Hyundai.

It makes me remember the blackberry craze of those years and the way they swept the African brain aside. Every nigerian thought literally believed blackberry was the best thing in the world.

what sort of ignorant classification is this. Are you joking or plain ignorant. Mercedes and Hyundai? Really. What the heck is Chrysler and Dodge compared to Benz. Abeg if you don't know something, just keep quiet
