As far as we can see from the spied interior of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S Class update, the cabin comes with rather subtle but effective changes for the flagship model of the company’s range.
Mercedes-Benz started delivering the S-Class top of the line about three years ago, so the executive saloon is on its way towards a mid cycle refresh – out in about a year or so as a 2018 model year in a bid to cope with the upcoming Audi A8 and new BMW 7 Series. The video features spied footage with the interior cabin of the facelifted prototypes out testing. We noticed the cabin has received rather minor tweaks, among the changes being the fact that on the upper side of the dashboard the pair of 12.3-inch digital displays is no longer separated with buttons. Both screens – instrument cluster and infotainment system – have been neatly integrated in a naturally flowing casing for a more coherent styling.
Mercedes is already hard at work testing the refreshed S Class but the rumor mill is not signaling a release any sooner than next year for a late 2018 model year appearance. According to the latest reports, the flagship sedan is also going to pack new straight-six cylinder engines that should have actually appeared along with the new generation E Class. With the video also showing the exterior of the car featuring very little camouflage we’re pretty much expecting the design to go down the evolutionary route as well.
