2017 Mercedes S-Class facelift is preparing to reach the market in 2017. New spy video shows the design of the luxury liner is only undergoing a subtle revision.
The biggest change is reflected on the front. There the S-Class will feature newly designed headlights, with three LED upper strips instead of one. The glowing signature stripes inside the rear lamps also seem to get a fresh layout.
Walko’s exclusive spy video shows minimal design changes to the interior. The large dual-display arrangement will mimic the new E-Class in layout with the frame becoming slimmer and the mechanical switches separating the display dedicated to the instrument cluster from the central multimedia screen gone.
The Mercedes S-Class facelift is expected to receive a host of new assistance systems, complete with semi-autonomous driving capabilities. In addition, the new Mercedes S-Class will carry the latest generation of multi-beam LED headlights. This system allows the driver to permanently drive with the long phase on – depending on the traffic situation individual LED units are turned off, for example, to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic.
On the engine front, we expect an increase in performance and a decrease in terms of consumption and CO2 emissions. The nine-speed automatic transmission will also be offered across the range.
