    • @Dragos Pahontu I can only base my opinion on what I know and Lexus , although is a good car maker, doesn't hold in my country. I have been looking forward to trying to buy a VERY long awaited LF1 promised last year and Toyota failed me yet again. I can however buy a Bentley anytime and pretty much anywhere

  • Audi A8 is from 2018.. new s class 2021 copied most features. No doubt S class is better in luxury, but for what it’s worth Audi has been making better strides than the other 2.

  • Nice review and comparison. I think the Audi A8 would be my choice over the S-Class. The Audi driving ability balances out the good and bad better than the S-Class. Plus the Audi Driving Instrument Cluster is really top notch, and I am not a fan of the Mercedes Infotainment big center screen. I would prefer to see an actual A8 over the S8 (kinda cheating). Thanks.

  • This guy was so biased. I've owned all three and currently drive the new Audi A8 and ill say that Audi by far surpasses bme and Mercedes. My audi a8 is a space ship from massagers, noise canceling speakers, private 5g wifi and most of all its AWD system is by far surpasses the 4matic and x series awd systems. Now all 3 are beautiful cars but mercedes benz provides its name when you buy it even though most Mercedes benz are basic unless you buy a amg or s class and bmw you get a comfortable ride with an amazing suspension but over all audi brings performance and luxury together.

  • I miss the days cars were distinct externally. You could look at W124 or E39 from the side profile and immediately identify it as a Benz or a BMW. Without the logo on the wheels a lot of these cars look like any other car from the side. That said, maybe the "carness" of a modern car is the technology it packs. The dynamics of exterior and interior have pretty much been exploited to almost the max. And that's why where the Merc stays ahead of the rest. Poor A8 and 7 series. Always playing catchup to the S Class
