The refreshed flagship sedan is getting ready for a 2017 debut.
Work on the refreshed Mercedes-Benz S-Class continues as a new prototype of the vehicle has been spotted testing in Germany. This new short spy video reveals the facelifted range-topping sedan for the German company will be getting revised headlights, featuring new graphics and new LED daytime running lights.
Last time we saw the model, it was wearing a slightly disguised front bumper. The camouflage is gone now and we can see some minor changes for the panel – it now features reshaped air intakes and a single chrome bar at the lower part. Most likely, the facelift will also bring new sets of alloy wheels, as well as different mirror caps.
More improvements are expected in the interior, where Mercedes will install a sportier steering wheel with a three-spoke design that will replace the current retro-styled two-spoke wheel. Also, the manufacturer will remove the buttons between the two displays, which will give the illusion there’s a massive single screen.
The S-Class debuted three years ago and the refreshed version will most likely arrive next year as a 2018 model. It’s still unclear whether any changes will occur underneath the hood, but we expect the engine range to be slightly revised, receiving improved power figures and better fuel economy.
