The 2018 Mercedes S-Class comes with a three-spoke steering wheel that is different from its current two-spoke setup. It also comes with an infotainment system and instrumental cluster.

To date, the facelifted S-Class will reportedly be launched in either the New York motor show or Shanghai motor show which will take place next month. The revamped S-Class sedan will roll out in the market in the third quarter of the year.
