Audi A8 v Mercedes S-Class: ULTIMATE LUXURY REVIEW! reviews

December 30, 2022

Which is the best luxurious plug-in hybrid – the Audi A8, or the Mercedes S-Class?

Well, we’re putting them to the test to find out!

When it comes to luxury limousines, it doesn’t get much better than these two cars. The question is, when they both look so good and are fitted with great materials throughout the cabin, can you choose one over the other?

Well, let’s see if we can separate them when it comes to performance! Starting with the Audi, it comes equipped with a 3-litre V6 turbo coupled with an electric motor to deliver 462hp. It drives all four wheels and will set you back at least £86,000 (although the long-wheelbase version we have here starts at £89,000).

Then we have the S-Class, which has a 3-litre straight-six along with an EV motor, which both deliver 367hp and 150hp. We don’t have a combined figure yet though. And no, it isn’t as simple as just adding them both together!

There’s one key difference with the S-Class though – the LWB edition will set you back at least £111,000! Is that enough to make you choose the Audi? You’ll have to stick with Mat to see for yourself!

  1. Which would you choose? VOTE BELOW!

  2. the A8 is much better

  3. I've had the S Class, BMW, Range Rover, and now and Audi A8. The S Class is the only one I didn't have a problem with. It drove like I was floating on clouds. Driving my A8 now is a blast and I enjoy that I see very few on the road. But the Audi Connect only worked for 6 months. Once the 6 month trial period was over, I haven't been able to connect my phone to the Audi Connect in the car. Neither the dealerships (I've taken to more than one) nor Audi USA have been able to fix the problem. I can't even get anyone from Audi USA on the phone. I expect more from a $115,000 car. One good thing about the Audi though is that I have no issue driving in deep snow. The Quattro is awesome!! But I’m still too jaded at this point to buy another one. In short, I will not drive a BMW or Audi again. Though the most beautiful SUVs on the street, I'd have to do extensive research to buy another Range Rover. But I'd certainly drive another Mercedes from my overall personal experience. The total experience, including customer support and time spent in the shop (or lack thereof), is what I base my assessment on.

  4. The Mercedes is the worst car on the road. The Audi is a far superior vehicle in the winter the Audi will leave the Mercedes sitting you can’t beat the Quattro system.

  5. The undisputed champion of luxury is the Mercedes Benz S Class!!!!

  6. Aesthetically, I would take the Audi's interior (dash and console) and the Mercedes' exterior.

  7. BMW👍👍👍

  8. S classsss the best

  9. Yes once the steering wheel get dirty this means it’s time to buy a new one

  10. 👍 Audis have the best quality award winning interiors from Europe, Mercedes is way back in interior quality in comparison and they weather poor as well.

    S class interior is way more advanced and luxorious….. but not sure about quality and realiability. Make videos on their quallity and realiability.

    at 1:26 even the older a8 model is more luxorious and beautiful

  13. Now it os 7 series

  14. By far it’s always the Star..Mercedes all the way the 222

  15. The console on the Mercedes puts me off straight away! It just looks like an add-on!

  16. Ah, a question that was never been asked

  17. I’ve had 3 S class Mercedes over the years and they are the best cars I’ve ever had….tried BMW, Audi and Range Rovers and they can’t be beaten….I’m on the look out for a good new version now!

  18. Please test both cars on frozen ground

  19. Beats me why reviewer never state the size of the fuel tank, and how many miles a car can travel on a tank of diesel/petrol, (obviously it is driver dependant) but if they say their can has averaged 35mpg and they know the fuel tank size it is not difficult to work it out. Far more useful than an irrelevant 0-60. 🙂

  20. They’re both hybrids, yet no mention of what MPGs they get? Why?
    Isn’t that the whole reason people buy hybrids?

  21. i just watched an S class review, how are people comparing it to the 7 series, the 7 series clearly have a lot more luxury features, the S class is not even close

  22. The best Audi is in front. It's the S8

  23. Bring the Mercedes intop Germany and it looks like the taxi's.

  24. The Audi is for car lovers and no egoists who care about the badge. The Mercedes this year ranks lowest on the reliability index. Enough said.

  25. The merc has a broken back arse.

    I think the S-class is always the best one, but in the A8 you never have to be sad owning one. I'm a A8 fan i've had 2, i would go for the AUDI.

  27. There are some features I agree with on newer vehicles however some cars are genuinely overdone. Sometimes simple is the best.

  28. I would choose the Audi.

  29. Just Can't find one time when S class loses a test

  30. AUDI 💪💪💪

  31. Audi looks crazy

  32. Matt ur always biased in favour of the Merc in any/all of ur videos involving any Merc

  33. Love you 😘 😘

  34. Audi is better.

  35. I disagree with you mat. You love mercedes more than the audi. Thats the problem thou.

  36. If I had money, I'd pick the…..oh who gives a shit

  37. I’d also be upset that a big car is doing a U turn in the middle of the road in front of me, c’mon guys, there has to be empty roads somewhere to test the car without annoying someone’s every day trip to work/home. I also noticed in the audi break test a car coming the opposite direction, I’m going to trust all safety was not compromised but I’m sure you can also find private roads for these tests.
