2018 is not yet here, but it’s time we take a step into the future by taking a look at a couple of cars that are taking us there. For a step above average, consider the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S 560 4MATIC® or the 2018 Audi A8. These pristine machines will give you the drive of your life, something most cars fail to do. Whether you seek the aesthetic qualities of the A8 or the performance and safety of the S 560 4MATIC®, you’ll undoubtedly be pleased with what you find.

State-of-the-art technology and intelligent innovation has allowed Mercedes-Benz to upgrade their 2017 S 550 model into the S 560. With this change comes more power and better performance without affecting your mpg. Thanks to the 4.0L bi-turbo V8 engine, drivers should notice a little extra kick in what was otherwise a fully capable sedan. Can it match up to what the A8 brings to the table? Let’s take a look!

A Reputation for Safety

When you move past performance and entertainment, there’s another area where the S 560 4MATIC® excels: safety.

They’ve been the first to create features such as PRESAFE®, which can brace passengers for a collision before it even occurs, and ATTENTION ASSIST®, which will both audibly and visually alert the driver if it senses drowsiness or fatigue based on the driver’s behaviors and actions.

It’s hard to pick between two reputable automakers, but we think the 2018 S 560 4MATIC® is the winner in this matchup.
