2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

When a new Mercedes-Benz model is spied on the road, it’s an exciting time for any luxury car enthusiast. Recently, the facelifted 2018 S-Class was caught with some notable updates. Although the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has not officially been revealed, here’s what we know so far about its release date and new design elements.

2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Release Date

The new 2018 S-Class is projected to be released during late summer 2017. At that time, drivers will have the opportunity to get behind the wheel and experience its new and improved features firsthand. In the meantime, here are some of the design and technology elements to expect.

On the outside, the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class looks to have a number of notable enhancements, such as redesigned bumpers, new exhaust finishers and trims, and minor adjustments to the taillight design. The 2018 S-Class also features multibeam headlamps with three-layered LED strips to help avoid blinding other drivers on the road.

What’s Inside the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class?

The interior of the 2017 S-Class also offers a few key updates. Instead of a two-spoke steering wheel, it sports the same three-spoke steering wheel that’s currently in the S-Class Coupe (pictured to the right). The digital gauge section and infotainment panel are now seamlessly connected, and there are some minor changes to the lower center console. The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is also expected to have new gesture controls for the infotainment system.

New Technology in the 2018 S-Class

In addition to updated exterior and interior design elements, the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is also projected to feature an array of new driver assistance systems with advanced autonomous capabilities, including completely autonomous parking and autonomous steering on the highway for brief periods.

Stay tuned for more information about the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which we will provide as the release date approaches.
