2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe And Cabrio To Bow In Frankfurt

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the 2018 S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet will debut at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

As with the facelifted S-Class sedan, the new S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet will receive some slight visual updates but perhaps more importantly, a selection of technology upgrades that promise to lift the flagship Mercedes sedan alongside the 7-Series and all-new A8.

Among these changes will be a selection of new engines, including a new biturbo V8 found in the S560 sedan and delivering 469 PS and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. Elsewhere, both Coupe and Cabriolet models are expected to receive a host of other petrol and diesel-driven variants, including a 3.0-liter inline-six diesel that produces either 286 PS and 600 Nm or 340 PS and 700 Nm, depending on its spec.

Another important upgrade that premiered with the facelifted sedan is a newly developed version of Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive. It incorporates advanced functions like Active Steer Assist, DISTRONIC Active Proximity Assist, Active Lane Change Assist, Active Emergency Stop Assist and Traffic Sign Assist. It also includes a Remote Parking Assist function like the 7-Series and A8.

We expect AMG S63 and S65 variants of the facelifted S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet to debut a few months after Frankfurt.

    The BASE price for a 2017 S-Class coupe in the US is $122,750. I’m just not sure it’s worth it. The AMG S65 Coupe starts at $236,250. Ouch!

      It’s a nice car indeed but there’s just other cars I rather have for those prices as well

      For those that think the Bentley Continental GT and the Rolls Royce Wraith are too pricey, this car might seem like a bargain in comparison. The quality is near on par, the technology is superior, dynamics are about on par, and maintenance is significantly cheaper. However, they would need to get over the issue that the E-Class and C-Class Coupes look similar for a cheaper in price.
