If you’re comparing the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. S-Class, make sure to consider every angle. Yes, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will arrive with a much higher price tag than the alternative. However, if you’re looking for a sedan that offers luxurious, limousine-like dimensions and staggering power as standard, you’ll have a hard time passing over the S-Class. 

Features and Appointments: E-Class vs. S-Class

As we showed in our preview of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class interior, the latest iteration of the brand’s flagship sedan offers a new-and-improved Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system with up to 50% more processing power than the outgoing version. Other S-Class standard features include: 

  • A 12.8-inch central display, with up to five screens available
  • Burmester® 3D Surround Sound system
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay™
  • Wireless Android Auto™
  • Inductive wireless charging with NFC pairing
  • 360-degree Surround View Camera with new 3D View Assist
  • Leather upholstery

We won’t know the full list of Mercedes-Benz S-Class features until it arrives at our dealership in Phoenix, AZ. However, it’s already safe to say that the new S-Class will meet or exceed the already-high standards of the new E-Class, which includes the following:

  • 12.3-inch touchscreen multimedia display
  • 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster
  • Mercedes-Benz User Experience
  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™
  • FrontBass® stereo with 15 speakers
  • Rearview camera
  • MB-Tex® synthetic leather upholstery

Engine Options: E-Class vs. S-Class

Engine options for AMG® and Maybach® variants of the S-Class have not yet been fully detailed, so it’s impossible to say how these two models will compare at the top of the range. However, we can already say for certain that the S-Class comes standard with more power that you can get in any E-Class from the standard line: 

  • Base S-Class Engine: The forthcoming 2021 Mercedes-Benz S 500 Sedan will offer a standard 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine, churning out 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available S-Class Engine: If you upgrade to the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S 580 Sedan, you’ll receive a 4.0L V8 biturbo engine instead. This model offers 496 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque–enough to totally revolutionize your Scottsdale and Mesa drives.
  • Available E-Class Engine: The E 450 4MATIC® Sedan offers 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. To get more power, you’ll need to move up to an AMG® model.

Dimensions: E-Class vs. S-Class

The E-Class is a luxurious midsize car with ample space for both front and rear-seated passengers, but the S-Class interior takes luxury to a whole new level. Since the S-Class Sedan is generally only sold in its long-wheelbase variant, we’ve compared the dimensions of that model to those of the standard E-Class Sedan:

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan Interior Dimensions

  • Headroom (1st/2nd) – 37.3 / 38.2 inches
  • Legroom (1st/2nd) – 41.7 / 36.2 inches
  • Shoulder Room (1st/2nd) – 57.8 / 57.1 inches
  • Trunk Volume – 13.1 cubic feet

Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan Interior Dimensions

  • Headroom (1st/2nd): 42 inches / 39 inches, or 38 inches with panoramic sunroof
  • Legroom (1st/2nd): 41 inches / 44 inches
  • Shoulder Room (1st/2nd): 60 inches / 58 inches
  • Trunk Volume: 19 cubic feet

The S-Class and the E-Class offer near-equal amounts of legroom to whoever happens to find themself in the driver’s seat, but those who come along for the ride are sure to prefer the S-Class. After all, it offers almost 8 more inches of rear legroom, along with much more space for cargo.
