The 2017 Mercedes S-Class has been spotted almost without any camouflage just in time for its big debut before the year ends. If we are lucky, it may be one of the stars of the Paris Motor Show 2016 which will happen just a few weeks from now and finally we can see all the new enhancement including a bleeding edge-tech that is highlighted in the spied photos.
Carparazzi's Favorite Show - The Latest Tech Inside
The 2017 Mercedes S-Class is busy these days with the paparazzi. It has been spied a few times, the first images show its face lifted but is still in heavy camouflage and changes seem quite limited. Now the recent spy photos show the exterior and interior clearly and there's even a video recorded on 4K quality.
As seen in the video below, but the most striking change in the 2017 S - Class is on the inside. With a new three - spoke steering wheel inspired from the one used on its smaller sibling and a sportier design inside. It also have the best and the latest technology where a larger touch screen was displayed and a new infotainment system is surely installed. Gesture controls, Drive Pilot semi-autonomous driving tech and more is also present and will make the S-Class more competitive than the BMW 7-Series and Audi A8.
Check out the video below.
What's still covered
The Mercedes S Class stil has some vinyl stickers on the front and rear bumpers suggesting that the main visual tweaks can be found in the lighting. The Mercedes S Class 2017, in its first stage of the remodeling process, presents only new headlamps that feature three LED strips and three light spots on the sides of each lighthouse. In addition to the new optical frame forward, it is expected that the facelift debuts modified bumpers, redesigned front grille, new wheel designs and other mirrors.
Another mystery yet to be unveiled is the S class engine. Although it is expected to be inherited directly from its predecessor, there could be some minor modifications to increase performance and efficiency. The current 577hp is said to be increased to 600hp. he most important question is whether it will be responsible for producing the current 5.5 - liter twin - turbo V8 or the new four - liter V8 that mounts the Mercedes-AMG GT.
Guess will have to wait and see until the Paris Motor Show.
