2018 Mercedes S-Class Facelift Design & Features
The facelifted 2018 Mercedes S-Class sports subtle tweaks to the design of the original car with the front end featuring a revised front grille with blacked out vertical bars, sitting behind the chromed-out triple horizontal slats.
Other changes include the new multi-beam LED headlamps with triple LED daytime running lights which are a new signature design feature for the S-Class. The front bumper has been tweaked as well and looks sportier while featuring larger air intakes.
The rear end of the new 2018 Mercedes S-Class has also been tweaked with a revised bumper and a new design for the taillamps. Also new are the 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels.
The interior of the S-Class is where the major tweaks have taken place, with the addition of twin 12.3-inch displays that replace the instrument binnacle and the old infotainment display. The new 12.3-inch infotainment display offers support for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and is paired with a 13-speaker Burmester surround sound system with a total output of 590W.
Other features include a new panoramic sunroof with an obstruction sensor, new touch panels on the steering wheel to control the infotainment system, an ambient lighting system with 64 colour options, 6 different fragrance options for the interior, climate control with ionization that improves air quality and wireless charging pads on both the front and rear armrests.
The new Mercedes S-Class also features a host of safety features including multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control and more.
Mercedes has also fitted the new S-Class with an array of Radar guided safety features including Active Distance Assist which keeps the flagship Merc at a certain distance behind another car at speeds up to 210kph, and if necessary applies the brakes as well.
Also present are the Active Steering Assist, which keeps the S-Class in the centre of the lane on long straight stretches of road, along with Active Brake Assist and Blind Spot Assist. The latter warns drivers of any obstacles in the car's blind spot while changing lanes.
