Mercedes-Benz is introducing the face-lifted 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet, along with the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. Official unveiling of the 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet is scheduled to happen a week from now at the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The introduction of the updated S-Class Cabriolet was well-expected after Mercedes took the wraps off the face-lifted S-Class Sedan or Saloon earlier this year. Compared to its predecessor, the new S-Class Sedan offers a new appearance, new dynamic feeling and new levels of comfort and convenience. This is thanks to a number of changes like new front and rear fascias and new grille design as well as new engines and a host of innovative technologies.
Just as expected, the updated 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet Facelift features more or less the same changes as that made on the 2018 S-Class Saloon. For instance, the new S-Class Cabriolet comes with new or functionally extended driving assistance systems, the latest infotainment generation, integrated Energizing comfort control as well as a new generation of steering wheels. The S-Class Cabriolet also features a modern control and display concept with Widescreen Cockpit.
Meanwhile, the rear lamps feature OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology. A total of 66 OLEDs -- wafer-thin layers of organic materials printed on a glass plate and made to illuminate – provide an unmistakable light signature, as complemented by a Coming Home function.
In addition, the new S-Class Cabriolet comes with Active Steering Assist and Active Distance Control DISTRONIC, which is able to automatically adjust speed ahead of bends, junctions or roundabouts. The new S-Class also comes with redesigned steering wheel with new touch control buttons as well as a 12.3-inch COMAND infotainment screen that has been merged with the instrument panel.
Mercedes-AMG will offer the S-Class Cabriolet in three versions: the S560 Cabriolet, the Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet, and the Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet.
