The facelifted version of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class parading with practically no camouflage signals that the flagship sedan’s development is nearing its end.
Keeping its vinyl wraps to the minimum, the vehicle, which will continue to challenge the likes of the BMW 7-Series and Audi A8, will get much more besides the redesigned lighting units and tweaked bumpers on both ends, as the Drive Pilot semi-autonomous driving technology is said to be part of the package.
The system has been taken from the latest generation E-Class and it’s the brand’s next step into launching a fully autonomous car in the future. Besides being able to partially drive itself, the new S-Class will also bring a few trim updates, but the biggest change inside will be the adoption of the large dual-display, as the one seen on its smaller sibling.
Not much is known about the engine lineup at this point except that it’s bound to be updated, and if you’re eager to check out Mercedes‘ flagship four-door, then you’re in for quite a long wait, as it’s expected to reveal its updated design and new gadgets sometimes next year.
