A Rolls Royce or a Bentley dont do same volumes as a S-Class and are marketed as bespoke luxury automobiles with huge customization options while S-class is the most luxurious "production car" in the world. There is a difference. A Bentley or a Rolls Royce will not have a brand new model every 6-7 years while on the other hand an S-Class would and therefore is always at the bleeding edge of technology. That said, there is nothing that the new S Class has that the recently launched 2018 RR Phantom VIII wont. The new Phantom may even have more technology than the S.
The new S Class park more tech than the RR Phantom.

Lol wetin be Benz..cars that cost nothing more than 15M at most.. That's a few thousand dollars. I understand you have never amounted to anything good in life reason you are struggling and your life is backwards so you can be forgiven if you see 15-20M naira as an insanely huge sum of money. For the time being, you can keep shouting if we no drive the Benz wetin we gain. When your mates are cruising in aventador and bentayaga.

OP please stop this, it is either you are very ignorant or you buy third hand cars. at most 15M for benz? WTF! how much be 2016 GLE 63s?

Most likely, but it's rare to hear rolls are unreliable like Benz and BMW after like 4 years of ownership even though BMW makes rolls and that's cos Rolls is about prestige and no need for unreliable tech that hasn't been tested extensively. The more reason Toyota is reliable than Benz and BMW. They use proven tech that stood the test of time. I'm a benz fan but BMW enthuatist but the truth is the more the tech, the lesser the reliability and resale value. Why do you think Lex has better resale value than Ranges of same year?

S class is rated above the RR in reliability and has higher warranty as well.
secondly tech has nothing to do with reliability, and can you kindly list out those tech you referred to as "unreliable tech"?
By the way Benz has better safety rating than your Lexus, Benz cars are made to last a lifetime.

What I'm even trying to pass is that Benz produces good models no doubt but the hype in this part of the world is getting crazy. Suddenly , upcoming poor artiste are singing "Benz" in their songs. Teenagers are wishing birthdays "age with Benz" on their Facebook and WhatsApp.

You know the funniest thing, there was a time it was range rover. Every Nigerian believed rangerover was the best thing on the planet.

The same fever that happened with the obsession with blackberry phones back then is happening again. Someone was even saying he'd pick a Benz over a Ferrari even if we had good roads around he'd still pick a Benz over a Ferrari lol. It was even only recently Benz started making waves. As at 2013, the love for it wasn't this absurd.

Before importers started trooping into US to import Toyota cars Peugeot and Benz were the most popular cars in Nigeria, every big men drove Benz and the rich kids were driving Benz 190. Jay Jay Okocha used his Benz 500 SEL for his wedding because it was the best money can buy at the time, so the craze for Benz didn't start today except you are an indomie generation kid and were too young to notice what the rich were driving in the 70s, 80s, 90s till date.
The person that said he would pick a Benz over a Ferrari knows what he is saying, Benz GT is a better head turner and offers same satisfaction in performance

Lol look at this joker.. U don carry your wahala come my side again. Poor man mentality.

Your Benz na for economy class. First class and business class drive Aston martin, lambos and the likes. Even american celebs don't make noise about any Benz. They dedicate songs to Aston martins, Bugatti's etc. Well, as the saying goes, cut your coat according to your size. Few years ago it was range rover Nigerians were making noise about then they migrated to toyota venza. Now its Benz. Illiterates and automobile novice everywhere.

lol.. I don't want to believe you are actually this ignorant.. I think you are doing this on purpose grin grin. Do you even know what the 4matic badge on a Mercedes stands for? 4matic means 4 wheel drive. It has nothing to do with how cheap a Mercedes is. The C300 you had is a car meant for economy class people which is why you think all Mercedes cars are for low earners. There are Benzes above 500M depending on what it packs.. go find out how much a "USED" Mercedes GTS costs.. used o.. not brand new so that stroke will not catch you. grin

With every post this seems more like a troll/click bait post.

There is no sudden hype in Benz, Murtala Mohammed was assassinated in a Benz in the 1970''s , everybody that made money from independence till date wants a Mercedes to mark the success (probably OP doesn't read else he would have read the book, My Mercedes is Bigger than yours written by Nkem Nwankwo in 1975)

The Mercedes Concorde (Old S Class was a status symbol in Nigeria before I was born).

Aston Martins and Ferrari's are cramped 2 seater sports cars that suck as daily drivers, Rolls Royce vehicles have terrible electrical and interior issues as they age (Hint: Research), if Maybach is as defunct company managed by Benz then Rolls is as defunct company managed by BMW.

This post is dead on arrival but the OP keeps struggling to make a non point one.

It's one thing to be ignorant, it's another thing to try to impose that ignorance on others.

with each post he makes, I just throw my head back convulsing with laughter and at the same time cringing at his grossly irritating ignorance. To make matters worse, he doesn't seem to know every new entry he makes only paints him as being dumber than you initially thought he was. Imagine all his chest beating boasting about how all mercs re for only poor people when in truth, Mercedes wants all men whether great or small to experience luxury at every level and status attained. The best he ever used from Mercedes was a C300 which to him was the best money could buy. I bet it's only what he could afford so I really don't blame him though. grin grin

I've been reading all comments on this thread from its inception. What you have succeeded in doing with this thread of yours is to expose your abysmal ignorance and lack of class. Class not in terms of cars or whatever but in the way you respond to comments here as you continue to keep us amazed at the extent of your ignorance.

Just to add to the topic, Mercedes is the only car brand I know that has something for everyone irrespective of your pocket size and need with vehicles ranging from small economy cars like the A class to super cars and even cargo trucks and trailer heads.

Look who is talking about novice, you sound like someone who has never left the comfort of his father's house, like I said Benz GT kills the Ferrari and if you want proof I will show you the head to head comparison of the GT and Ferrari 488 GTB.
learn because you know nothing about cars, Benz has been here before the Range Rover you talk about and yes Benz is still here.

Lol what blasphemy. Ferrari is a classic brand son. It has been there for ages. Used by royals. Even the recent British royal wedding, Ferrari was used. A 1986 vintage model for that matter.

You should be comparing Benz with brands like Lexus, Chevrolet, Volkswagen etc.. Not Ferrari son. Everyone dies for a Ferrari regardless of the model. Its a classic car, its vintage. Benz is for economy class.
