2017 Mercedes S-Class facelift has been spied again on video and we have all the details, courtesy of casual prototypes spotter Walko.
The facelifted W222 series is preparing to reach the market in 2017. New spy video show 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.
