The 18 PS was a middle-class automobile built by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1905 to 1907, as an evolution of the Benz Parsifal 22 PS. It was later replaced by the 10/18 PS.

The 18 PS was fitted with a 3160cc four-cylinder engine capable of generating 18 bhp (13.2 kW) of output. The power from the engine was transmitted via a leather cone clutch to a three- or four-speed gearbox, and from there it would be transferred to the rear wheels through chains or a propshaft, depending on what the customer ordered. It weighed approximately 1350 kg, measured 3840 to 4125 mm long, and rode on a 2800 to 3080 mm wheelbase.

This leaf-sprung vehicle with wooden spoke wheels and tires was offered as a double phaeton and saloon, and was sold for 12,500 or 14,500 gold mark, respectively. A chain drive was offered for a supplementary cost of 1000 mark.
