One of the greatness about the leaked shots of 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the precisely caught details about the exterior look and design and even the look of the cabin. As we saw on the site “Saudi Shift”, there are few changes from the prototypes in term of design and details worth of mentioning, but we could not see much in term of the equipment in the cabin, or changes in engine strength. However, details we saw on those photos promise great selling season for Mercedes fans as well as many novelties in mid-size class for years to come.
As the spy photos of 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class shown, there is recognizable front grille, with chromatic wide grids, and large lights with incorporated matrix LED daily lights. We expect new Mercedes technology with Multibeam LED lights. Below them is wide air intake on the massive bumper all below the flat and long hood. Expect many changes in the rear end, too, with double exhaust, made of chrome, slightly rounded truck door with revised taillights. Although the shape of the truck door is almost the same as on the current model, the graphic and details should be different.
Spy photos cannot show much, but we saw many interesting things in the cabin of 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, too. Maybe it is better to say that we saw a steering wheel and a piece of center console. As the opposite of prototypes, this model has a rotary center console and not smartphone-like console as on prototypes. We should expect larger infotainment control system as well as many innovations in term of technology. The steering wheel is made of three pieces, with many commands there. Other parts are not visible on photos, even though we could see modernity and elegance in white leather.
We know that 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 petrol engine with new technology in V8 3.0-liter petrol 6-inline as the base model. That means that old engine in last models will undergo some changes in order to provide better driving experience for less energy. Speaking about the energy, there is planned to be offered a new electric engine as the beginning of the new line of plug-in hybrid S-Class. It is good to mention a whole list of equipment, like automatic braking and acceleration, navigation system and rear view camera as part of safety package.
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Release Date and Price
If you are thrilled to see how the new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will look like you still have time to visit New York or Shanghai Auto Show when it will be shown. However, releasing date should be during 2018. Price is going to be around $97,525 and higher for Cabrio version.
