Mercedes-Benz S-Class facelift to be launched in India in February 2018

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


Mercedes-Benz will be launching the S-Class facelift in February 2018. The firm will launch the car at the 2018 Auto Expo. While we know a lot about the car already, considering that we have driven it, we wait to find out what all features make their way into the car. The business’s flagship model is shaped at the Chakan facility in Pune which is the only plant outside of Europe that produces the S-Class.

It was freshly that we caught we the S-Class facelift undergoing emissions testing and we got a glimpse of what the model will look like. On the exterior, the face lifted car differs from the pre-facelift with its new headlamps and tail lamps along with the new front and rear bumpers. The facelift S-Class also gets a new set of wheels as associated to the elder car. On the interior, the S-Class gets typically well-made interiors with two new 12.3-linch high definition screens that make up the infotainment and the central command unit. The S-Class also gets wood options for interior trim and leather options for the seats and the side panels.

The new S-Class even gets new seats with a new fragrance function along with the obvious cooled, heated and massaging options. The new S-Class in India will have a range of new inline 6-cylinder petrol and diesel engines along with a range topping twin-turbo V8. The S-Class will also be available with the more powerful AMG options in the sedan, convertible and coupe formats along with the long wheelbase Maybach. Just like the pre facelift version, the new S-Class will also be assembled in India including the V8 powered long-wheelbase Maybach version. Of course the price of the car will be north of Rs.1 crore but we wait to find out more about it.
