BMW Acknowledges That The New Mercedes S-Class Is Superior to the Aging 7 Series

In a rare showing of public humility, BMW is throwing flowers in Mercedes-Benz’s direction. The Bavarian automaker has taken to social media to acknowledge what a lot of people already know: the all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is balls-to-the-wall awesome.

BMW seems to think so, too, telling its fierce rival that it is a big fan of the S-Class. It’s a nice acknowledgment from BMW’s part, though it is worth mentioning that the next-generation BMW 7 Series is already in the works. Seems like BMW knows that Mercedes raised the segment’s bar with the all-new S-Class. Now it’s BMW’s turn to meet Mercedes at that level with the next-generation 7er.
