One of our loyal readers spotted the facelifted 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class in a parking garage, and the pics say quite a bit about the car.
A special shout out for WCF reader Tobias, who sent in these brilliant pics of the Mercedes S-Class facelift. He spotted the Mercedes-Benz S400 Bluehybrid at rest in a parking garage in Germany.
New side-view mirrors have a more squared off shape than the current model. This matches the new, squared front bumper which distinguishes the car a bit more from other sedans. A larger air intake is flanked on both sides by new recessed fog lights. As we previoulsy mentioned, this car has a new graphic covering the headlights, with daytime-running LEDs added on. Headlights keep the same basic shape, as does the hood. However, the hoods lines are more steep and defining.
This car is also riding on bold, seven-spoke wheels that we don't remember seeing previously. At the back, we see the dual exhaust more integrated into the rear bumper. Taillights are improved by the addition of LEDs.
We're not sure how long we have to wait for the official debut of the facelifted Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but we hope to see it at Geneva. The new lineup should come to market soon as a 2010 model year car.
