2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs Bentley Flying Spur video review: the world's best luxury saloon?

There are two very cool, very new luxury saloons in town.

One is the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the one they throw all the technology at to make it widely regarded as the best big saloon/sedan/whatever you’d like to call it. S-Classes come with all kinds of engine, right up to and including very powerful petrol ones, but this is a little more straightforward – it’s an S400d. Actually an engine that suits it rather well. It costs £104,425, has 330hp and more importantly a mammoth cruising range.

The other car is still relatively new too, and it’s more expensive and luxurious still. It’s a Bentley Flying Spur and as a W12 it costs £168,300 and has 635bhp – figures both rather bigger than the S-Class’s, but don’t let semantics get in the way – more expensive S-Classes are available and a cheaper Flying Spurs are too.

Besides, there’s a reason for the mis-match – but you’ll have to join Matt Prior to find out why.
