The 27/70 PS was an automobile manufactured by the German automotive firm Benz & Cie from 1918 to 1923. It was a successor to the four-cylinder 33/75 PS.

The 27/70 PS was fitted with a 7065cc six-cylinder engine capable of generating 70 bhp (51 kW) of output at 1550 rpm. Engine power was transferred from a leather cone clutch to a four-speed gearbox, and from there via a propshaft to the rear wheels. The vehicle had a top speed of about 95 km/h and consumed approximately 28 litres per 100 km. It weighed between 2200 and 2360 kg, measured 5130 mm long, 1800 mm wide, and 1720 mm high, and rode on a wheelbase of 3650 mm.

The 27/70 PS was offered as a saloon and touring car, and was equipped with wooden or wire-spoked wheels and leaf-sprung rigid axles.
