2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Facelift: here are the changes

Earlier this week, the revamped 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class was revealed ahead of the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. As expected, Mercedes Benz’s flagship model is now offered in several variants including the AMG specced sedan. Unique to this update is the suite of driver assistance technologies and active safety features under its latest Intelligent Drive system.

According to Mercedes-Benz, the new enhancements on the S-Class are the closest it could get to actual autonomous driving. The most notable ones include the new Active Speed Limit Assist, Active Lane Change Assist, Active emergency Stop Assist, Active Steering Assist and Active Distance Assist Distronic feature. It also comes equipped with the new Route Based Speed Adaptation technology that adjusts the vehicle’s speed according to the information seen on the map such as exit ramps, toll booths, roundabouts, junctions and curves.

Most mid-cycle updates are not technically considered as facelifts. Instead, the automaker performs a few tweaks here and there to bring a fresh new offer for their customers. This time however, the luxury sedan is almost not the same as its previous model.

Recently facelifted 2018 Hyundai Sonata comes fresh off the oven

South Korean automaker, Hyundai, is rolling out a rejuvenated D-segment sedan. Hyundai previously produced the Sonata with an extroverted, dramatic imaged but softened the look of the current generation vehicle that was revealed to the public eye 3 years ago. Recently Hyundai reverted back to its extroverted and dramatic outline of the midsized sedan.

The pre-ramped up 2018 Hyundai Sonata was launched last March of this year in its homestead in South Korea. Currently the aesthetically modified Sonata midsized sedan will make its debut this week in North America, specifically participating at the 2017 New York Auto Show. Akin to its Korean counterpart, the newly tweaked 2018 Sonata sports a newly revised front end that highlights the new "cascading" grille and boosted front fasciae fitted with vertical LED running lights.

Hyundai exclaimed that the brand new front end of the vehicle is equipped with vertical side air intakes to provide the car a more planted feel, and its hood revised to make it lower at the front, in which it gives the 4 door sedan a sleeker look. The new "cascading" grille got its influence from the molten steel that is flowing outside of the caldron. However the overall body of the 2018 Sonata did not have a hint of change as it’s still maintaining a sleek, low roofline of the pre-ramped up unit. Another option that the consumer can choose is the Full LED headlamps. The rear part of the sedan is sporting a sharper looking LED taillights, with a lettering that reads "Sonata". Impressively the rear is less cluttered looking than that of its former self.

New and improved 2018 Hyundai Sonata to grace the 2017 New York Auto Show

Next week, a variety of new and refreshed models will grace the 2017 New York Auto Show. Once again, various automakers will come together to show off their latest products and features. And officials have confirmed that one of those vehicles is none other than Hyundai’s newly refreshed 2018 Sonata midsize sedan.

Not much has been revealed of what is inside the car and what it can do (or achieve), but reports say that the American model has a close resemblance with the newly updated Korean version which made its official debut in South Korea just a few days ago.

If we would base the new look of the American model with the Korean version, then it would also have a redesigned front grille, new LED running lights, redesigned taillights, and a new trunk badge which also functions as its opening handle – a few of the exterior revisions that we will be expecting.

The German automobile manufacturer powerhouse Mercedes-Benz is on the brink of fully launching the mid-cycle upgrade of its flagship vehicle around April. Included in the press release from Mercedes-Benz regarding the plan for the S-Class lineup to be a level 2 autonomous vehicle are several images of parts of its interior. These have been hidden in plain sight all along.

In the previous months, there were leaked images of the S-Class Facelift that were published online, and the alterations are noticeable. A cleaner front bumper was revealed with a chrome bar fitted across the bumper. Also, the grill and the multibeam lead headlamps were shown to the public.

But only recently has the interior been clearly seen, and it is the perfect treat to us who are all too keen to see any aspect of its interior. Sadly, it doesn’t show all the anticipated changes. The overall look and outline of the dash, its location, the proportion of the display and the controls of the center console appear to be the same.

The mid-cycle facelift for the Mercedes-Benz's S-Class have been disclosed to the public eye via these leaked shots. The images that recently surfaced and others like it were published online by SaudiShift and revealed what appear to be alterations made on the updated S-Class.

Upfront where the changes are more noticeable, the more improved S-Class has a cleaner front bumper design with a chrome bar found across the width of the lower air intake area. Its grill has also been changed with a recent elliptical chrome slats, with the internals of the Multibeam Lead headlamps revised as well. Meanwhile, the rear has received some minor alterations.

There is a small revision made to the rear bumper and a new chrome bar connecting with the 2 exhaust tips. Internally, the state of the art sedan is fitted with larger screens for both infotainment and instrumentation purposes. The screens found on the updated sedan are devised to look like one continuous unit. Also it is seen that some minor tweaks were added to the lower center console as well.

Since the Qashqai SUV was first released by Nissan in 2013, it has gone on to become the best-selling crossover in Europe. During the early part of this year, there were reports that the Japanese automaker may be releasing a revised version. That appears to be true as Nissan has officially unveiled the 2017 Nissan Qashqai Facelift during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Qashqai owners know that one of the benefits of this model is that it allows for a more confident drive. Even with the number of modifications, the new version is able to continue having that excellent outstanding performance. Because of the improvements done to the steering system, damping system, and the suspension system, the new Qashqai is able to offer a road experience that is more refined than usual.

With better utilization of absorption materials plus the glass in the rear being made thicker, it’s ensured that noise experienced in the cabin is lowered. The selection of the different-sized wheels help as well since they have all been optimized in terms of aerodynamics in order to maximize the efficiency.

Infiniti has enhanced the Q50 premium sports saloon, which makes its global debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. With refreshed styling and holistic performance technologies, Infiniti Q50 was designed to empower and support drivers on the road.

Taking a fairly conservative approach to a mid-cycle refresh, Infiniti revised Q50 supercar’s lower air intakes with new driving lamps and enhanced grille with deeper detailing to the mesh pattern. New LED headlights are incorporated for a better visibility while slimmer LED tail lamps derived from the Q60 are in effect out back.

To spice things up, new model grades offer Infiniti customers a choice of two exterior designs. According to Francois Bancon, Infiniti Vice President for Global Product Strategy, each model grades offer a distinctive look and character. In particular, Red Sport 400 lets drivers express themselves with a more assertive design conveying the car’s performance potential.

Hyundai officially debuted the redesigned Sonata in South Korea. This has been a long time coming for auto enthusiasts after having been subjected to a short teaser campaign, spy photos, and a leaked image.

This redesign is said to be advantageous for the midsize sedan as it will now incorporate the brand’s newest design language that was first revealed with the i30 and the Elantra.

Hyundai said that for the South Korean version, all of the trim levels will be fitted with the center console having a 7-inch display as standard on the interior. However, customers will be given the option to have the 8-inch screen, if they so wish. Whether the customer decides to go for the standard trim or the premium one, the infotainment systems for both will be compatible not only with Apple CarPlay but also with Android Auto.

t seems as if something had flown out of the drawing board. Kind of. Before the Korean carmaker holds its official debut this year, sketches of the updated 2018 Hyundai Sonata have leaked on the Internet. Based on the reports, the teasers first came from Hyundai’s official Facebook page but a recent post from Hyundai-Blog also has the same drawings of the new sedan.

Although it wasn’t the first time that the upcoming model was spied online, the sketches prove to be more revealing as far as the design cues and how the finished product would turn out later on.

If anything, the new updates give the new Sonata a sportier look and it appears to have more of a European flair this time as compared to the current model. At least judging from the overall impression. Thanks to Schreyer’s signature nose grille, the most noticeable changes go to the front end which also includes new headlights and distinctive daytime running lights in LED. Besides these changes, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata is expected to come with redesigned cabin with new trims to match as well the latest information and entertainment system.

Affordable while being elegant at the same time, SKODA is implementing different innovations to the RAPID range to bring these features to new heights.

Slotted between the FABIA and that of the OCTAVIA, both the RAPID and the ŠKODA RAPID SPACEBACK belong to the compact car segment and have already managed to set new standards with regards to spaciousness. Indeed, while they have a compact appearance, the space made available inside is truly remarkable. Now ŠKODA will be optimizing all of these aspects.

For example while the legroom for both models is at 65 mm, the RAPID offers rear headroom of 972 mm whereas the RAPID SPACEBACK reveals headroom space of 980 mm. Boot capacity is 550 liters for the RAPID with the RAPID SPACEBACK displaying volume at 415 liters.

Soon, we will be able see VW Group's new frugal turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine underneath the hood of the 2017 Skoda Octavia facelift. This engine – the 1.5-liter TSI Evo powerplant --will be one of the five available engines for the 2017 Skoda Octavia Facelift.

When Skoda announced the face-lifted version of the Octavia in October 2016, it also disclosed that its power will be sourced from four available engines – two petrol and two diesel engines – in the United Kingdom. The petrol engines include a 1.0 TSI that delivers 115 PS and a 1.4 TSI that provides up to 150 PS. Meanwhile the diesel powerplants include a 1.6 TDI that generates 115 PS and a 2.0 TDI that develops max output of 150 PS. Available transmission systems include a manual gearbox and a DSG transmission with six or seven gears.

Now, the 1.5-liter TSI Evo petrol engine is not entirely a new powerplant. It is in fact, an evolution or an upgraded version of the 150-PS 1.4 TSI unit that is available as one of the cores for the 2017 Skoda Octavia. Featuring cylinder deactivation, this 1.5-liter TSI Evo engine is able to deliver 150 hp (110 kW) of max output and 250 Nm (184 lb.-ft.) of peak torque. This means that the petrol versions of the new 2017 Skoda Octavia facelift will be available with either a 1.0 TSI with 115 PS or a 1.5 TSI Evo with 150 PS. As for the 1.4 TSI petrol engine in the Skoda Octavia, it will be gradually replaced with the evolved unit starting the second half of the year.

Aiming to build hype for its 2018 Ford Mustang, the American automaker is showing the face-lifted sports coupe at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. Just like other carmakers displaying their wares in Chicago, Ford is also showing potential customers what the new Ford Mustang could offer to them.

While it is the first time that Ford showed the 2018 iteration of the pony car, the Chicago Auto Show presents a good chance for those who are still aching to see the new Ford Mustang, which now features a redesigned front end and a restyled rear end.

On the outside, the new 2018 Ford Mustang is now provided with lower remodeled hood, which is around an inch (2.54 cm) lower than before. This bonnet and its matching vents – now repositioned -- give the 2018 Ford Mustang a more aggressive and more dynamic appearance on the road. Its upper and lower front grilles also received a bit of remodeling. Moreover, Ford gave the new Mustang a set of all-LED headlight lights with available fog lamps.

The F80 generation of the BMW M3 will be getting its second Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) for the 2018 model year. To explain it further, Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) is BMW’s term for a mid-cycle refresh or simply a facelift. This means that we would be seeing the BMW M3 with some updates on its look when it is released for the 2018 model year.

It is fairly easy to tell which part of the 2018 BMW M3 has been updated. After all, it is the lone most obvious visual tweak implemented on the face-lifted 2018 BMW M3 LCI II. At a glance, the headlights of the 2018 BMW M3 seem familiar – this is because these lamp units are the ones found on the visually updated 2017 BMW M4 LCI. This means that the new BMW M3 now features newly designed adaptive full-LED headlights, which could cast their beam in the direction of the curve to ensure better visibility at night. The new headlight graphics and design makes use of extra LED bars that help highlight the connection between the BMW M3’s kidney grille and its light units. Apart from newly designed headlights, there are no other major visual tweaks implemented. Everything remains the same aside from the new headlights.

There are some visual tweaks implemented inside the 2018 BMW M3 LCI II. Now, the illuminated M3 logos on the seats of the driver and the front passenger now feature a fresher design. Just like on the exterior, other sections inside the cabin remain as they are. In addition, the 2018 BMW M3 LCI II won’t feature any performance updates. This means that BMW didn’t do anything for the engine and other complementary components.

Ford has just recently unveiled the 2018 Ford Mustang, and as it turned out, the carmaker gave its beloved pony car a facelift. There have been mixed reactions about the changes made to the 2018 Ford Mustang – some were pleased and others were not. But still, the new 2018 Ford Mustang is a magnificent muscled sports car with dazzling looks and mesmerizing performance.

At this junction, many are already expecting Ford to create a convertible version of the Mustang. It was only logical, since the Ford Mustang for the 2017 model year also featured a number of convertibles, including the Mustang V6 Convertible, Mustang EcoBoost Premium Convertible and the Mustang GT Premium Convertible. However, for the 2018 model year, Ford only unveiled images of the hardtop variants. It may take several more months before the Detroit carmaker finally reveals their open-top counterparts.

However, thanks to X-Tomi Design, an automotive visual artist from Hungary, we might be already looking at the convertible version of the 2018 Ford Mustang GT. X-Tomi Design is becoming notoriously known for rendering seemingly actual images of future or possible versions of any new vehicle offering. For its latest project, X-Tomi Design chose the 2018 Mustang GT as the base model and decided to render out a convertible variant.

Ford Mustang customers won’t be able to specify the V6 powerplant for the latest iteration of the carmaker’s pony car. This comes as the new 2018 Ford Mustang is saying goodbye to its 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine.

The V6 engine had been one of the available powerplants for the Mustang along with the 2.3-liter GTDI I-4 engine (Four Cylinder EcoBoost) and the 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine. While it has more cylinders (six vs. four) and higher displacement (3.7 liters vs. 2.3 liters) than the four-cylinder EcoBoost, the larger naturally aspirated V6 simply loses in terms of power output and torque as well as fuel efficiency.

In the 2017 Ford Mustang, the V6 engine provides 300 hp of max output at 6,500 rpm and 280 lb.-ft. of peak torque available at 4,000 rpm. This engine boasts of EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 18 mpg city, 27 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined both in manual and automatic transmissions. The smaller yet turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine offers better figures.
