Both the 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Audi A8 get to a roaring start, with powerful engines under their hoods. However, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class seems to come out ahead, with a bit more oomph from its two available engines when compared to the one engine choice presented by the A8.

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class offers two available models, the S 500 and the S 580. Each is equipped with its own stunning engine:

  • S 500 – 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine, with 429 horsepower and 384 lb ft of torque
  • S 580 – 4.0L V8 biturbo engine, with 496 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque

Meanwhile, the Audi A8 offers only one model, the A8 L, which only comes with one engine choice. When compared to the 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the A8’s lone 6-cylinder engine underperforms in all aspects, only delivering up to 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.

One aspect where both models align is that they come with standard all-wheel drive systems. The 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is equipped with standard 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, while the Audi A8 features the quattro® all-wheel drive system. Both help to keep you steady and stable in various road conditions.
