Dashboard images of 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Facelift get released

Article by Christian A., on April 11, 2017

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.

However, the steering wheel has gotten an upgrade. Say goodbye to the 2-spoke steering wheel and say hello to a more aesthetically pleasing 3-spoke wheel. At the lower part of the steering wheel, there is an etching that reads "Maybach", this possibly indicates that the S-Class line up will possibly undergo a major facelift, including the most elite of the S Class - the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class.

Additional features include cruise control, standard volume, and telephone controls buttons attached to the steering wheel. The posh sports car will also have buttons for navigation through the infotainment's system menus. Identical to the E-Class, there will be small black square buttons on both sides that will easily respond to touch. Under the hood, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class revealed an inline 6 "M256" engine running on gasoline and is sporting a 48 V electrical system. This is set to offer the 8 cylinder engine while keeping costs in check. The engine also delivers 408 hP (300 kW) and 369 lb-feet of torque.

The S-class lineup will also be considered as the company's first ever most technologically updated car with impressive features of both its safety and assistance systems. With features like Active Lane Change, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Speed Limit Assist,Traffic Sign Assist, Active Distance Assist Distronic, Active Emergency Stop Assist, Active Brake Assist, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Parking Assist, Remote Parking Assist and the Car to X Communication, you will be tempted to get your hands on these techie vehicles. The chic S-class lineage will be unveiled at the Auto Shanghai Show this year, and will be sold starting this fall.
