The long awaited Mercedes-Benz S-Class facelift has been revealed at the Auto Shanghai 2017, with both cosmetic and mechanical changes. In terms of looks, the S-Class has been a major winner since it was launched in this generation in 2014 and the facelift builds further on the looks. The car now gets a revised grille, three-stripe full LED headlamps, sporty bumpers and re-profiled tail lamps. The cabin gets bigger screens both for the instrument panel as well as the passenger while the steering has moved from the classic two-spoke unit to a more conventional three spoke unit that is in line with Mercedes’ latest design philosophy. What’s more, the cabin features four-zone climate control, infotainment system, electric massaging seats and 64 hue mood lighting along with 36 speaker Burmester audio system—and they can all be programmed to work together in different combinations, for different kind of ambiances! Now that’s what we call the new definition of cool! Under the hood, the facelifted S-Class gets a revised petrol engine in the S 560 variant, a 4.0-litre V8 petrol motor that’s tuned to produce 469bhp/700Nm. There are two diesel options in the S350d and S400d, both 3.0-litre six-cylinder producing 286bhp/600Nm and 340bhp/700Nm respectively. There will also be a new six-cylinder petrol unit which will be a hybrid model. However, the newest feature additions are the ‘Intelligent Drive’ assisted driving systems with a variety of driver aid technologies.
