Mercedes Putting The Final Touches On Facelifted S-Class & S63 AMG

The facelifted Mercedes S-Class was spotted during development testing in Southern Europe, along with its go-faster silbing, the mighty S63 AMG.

The German luxury flagship is set to receive a range of updates, including some of the advanced tech features that debuted in the E-Class. Things like touch-sensitive controls, a new three-spoke steering wheels and a new set of digital displays are already a given, thanks to our skilled spies’ previous efforts.

Being one of the most impressive features of the current model, the updated S-Class will host a pair of two new high-resolution screens with no buttons in between them, making them look more unified and elegant. The infotainment system will be controlled by the new touchpad knob on the center console.

The exterior will be touched up with new lighting signatures all around and a redesigned set of bumpers mainly. Overall the shape of the S-Class will remain as is, as Mercedes don’t want to mess with what is already considered a very successful design approach.

The engine range is also going to be updated in order to offer cleaner emissions and probably even more power. There is a report going around that says Mercedes is going to debut their new straight-six petrol engines in the facelifted S-Class, paired to a 48V mild hybrid system. That could explain the extensive development testing we saw during the previous months, but so far we can only speculate on the matter.

With that said, Mercedes is expected to show the world the new S-Class and its faster derivative at a major auto show soon, if not in Paris, at one of the upcoming events, so we won’t have to wait too long to found out what’s really going on.
