Talking New Audi Ad Features S-Class


is it weird that I thought the Benz looked a hundred times better in the ad than the Audi? aren't they supposed to make the competitor look bad?

The Audi looks even less appealing in this new bodywork, the previous A8 nailed it stylistically but the droopy eyes and less aggressive side panels make this car look much smaller and plain than the outgoing car.

I love how they try to imply that the S-Class is not pretty much synonymous with innovation itself. I actually like Audi's and I think they have there own spot in the market for more sporty luxury cars. But the pure luxury territory they're trying to tread into is ruled by Mercedes IMO.

The S class is KING everyone knows this. Do you see Mercedes downplaying the A8 in their commercials? NO. because the S class sells itself, it doesnt NEED commercials. (that and Mercedes has CLASS, bwahahaha, get it?)

but yes, all Audi did with this add was show how much better the S class looks. Fail Audi.

I don't think it would be a good idea for me to create a signature. It would probably just be some shameless plug about me being a Realtor.

Exactly, if they have to try and take shots at the other car companies to promote theirs, not just mercedes but bmw also, then their cars must not be that great.

The commercial tells me that the Audi A8 is for driving to work early in the morning, the MB S-class is for pleasure driving at night.

+1

Looks like the A8 is the daily driver, while the S class is the weekend car.

They are both really cool cars. Loved the original in the Transporter movies, but the S-Class is just amazing, everything about it is perfect.



Got benz?
