The S-Class has always been a symbol of luxury. The website Saudi Shift has recently revealed some leaked shots of the updated S-Class features for the year 2018. These upgrades and minor changes will mostly refer to visual features as well as the technology department.
The exterior of the 2018 S-Class will not go any significant and innovative changes. You will notice slightly redesigned features, especially in the front fascia. For example, the front bumper will get a more streamlined appearance and have larger intakes. This will give the car and its front part wider proportions and more massive styling. The grille and its slats will also be reworked as well as the headlights which will be using the matrix LED technology known as the Multibeam LEDs by Mercedes. In the rear, we have noticed the redesigned exhaust tips and a strip of chrome that links them. There will also be 20-ich alloy wheels. Perhaps, only the taillights will keep the shape similar to that seen on the current model.
When it comes to interior of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, we must say that most of its design features remained the same. The Company paid most attention to upgrading the technology, meaning the entertainment and infotainment systems. However, there will be another interesting innovation named the ‘Drive Pilot’. It will represent a self-driving system by which the car will be able to drive on its own in different situations and conditions. The driver will, of course, monitor this activity. The system will use accelerating and automatic braking. The S-Class will also be equipped with lots of safety and driver assist features. Other improvements include the three-spoke steering wheel and three new interior design combinations of upholstery colors. On the dashboard, you will find the instrument cluster with larger dual digital displays. A 12.3-inch touch screen will provide the latest infotainment system. Also, the energy-saving LED interior lighting will be available in 64 colors.
When we talk about the power train of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, there will certainly be more than one option. The current 4.0-liter will be upgraded to the 4.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 that will be able to make 463 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The other option will be the new 3.0-liter inline-6 with 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The rumor has it that another possible version could be the plug-in hybrid S-Class, probably named S550 EQ Power, that will come with an option of wireless charging.
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Release Date and Price
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class models should probably be expected to hit the market in the second half of 2017. The price details have still been a mystery. However, the price of the base model before the options is estimated at $98,000.
