Mercedes-Benz S-Class facelift to debut worldwide in April

Mercedes-Benz S-Class facelift to debut worldwide in April

Mercedes-Benz has told reporters that the facelifted S-Class is scheduled for an April reveal. It is rumoured that this mid-life refresh of the S-Class will be the most technologically advanced model in Merc’s range. 

We reported spotting the facelifted S-Class in September, and the prototype had redesigned bumpers, updated head lamps and tail lights with new internals.  Some changes to the cabin are expected too. Sources also state that the safety and assistance systems found in the new E-Class will also find their way into the facelifted S-Class with more functions. Dr Michael Hafner, head of automated driving, added that the brand was working towards making the autonomous driving functions road-legal.

Under the hood will rest  the newly developed inline-six petrol engine that uses a 48V electrical system, an electric compressor, and an integrated starter-alternator. The combined effort of this powertrain can produce the same output as an eight-cylinder engine while being substantially frugal. Also, a new inline-six turbodiesel engine is expected to power the S-Class facelift. It will have two-stage exhaust turbocharging and variable valve timing to bump up performance while still being considerably efficient. There’s also talk about a new bi-turbo 4.0-litre V8 petrol motor to find its way to the new application. 

We shall share more news on Mercedes’ plan with the facelifted S-Class launch in the weeks to come.
