Extreme_torque- I beg to differ. The S-class has always focused on interior luxury and space, comapre the past 3 generations of both 7 and S, you will notice that the S has gotten more cramped while the 7 has gotten more spacious. In diesel engine refinement, the merc wins, hands down, their engines have adapted to our fuel quality thanks to years of being in the Indian market. In petrol refinement, both should be equal. The boss buying his luxo-limo wants comfort when he's in the backseat but on the few occasions he does get into the drivers seat, he wants it to full fill his mid-life crisis needs of power.
Suspension wise too the merc would have the upper edge, I presume. But before I make that judgement certain I'd want to sit in a 7 series with comfort tyres that are non RFT. Thanks to the adjustable suspension settings a new 7 with comfort tyres riding on comfort setting suspension won't not be much different from the S. For the true BMW character you switch to sports mode and firm it up.
