On some of the prototypes for the updated S-Class, a smartphone-like surface replaced the rotary dial.
A debut of the updated S-Class is expected to take place soon, perhaps as early as the New York or Shanghai auto shows on next month.
Follow Viknesh Add to circleSome of Mercedes-Benz’s mid-cycle updates for the S-Class have been revealed in a series of leaked shots.

according to Other features are Active Distance Assist Distronic with Active Speed Limit Assist, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist and semi-autonomous Active Lane Change Assist, part of the Drive Pilot package.
There’s also a dual-bar grille on this V8-powered example, meaning that it will no longer be restricted to V12 and Maybach models.
At the back, the LED tail lights look to get the E-Class-style “stardust effect,” while the rear valence has been redesigned with integrated tailpipes.
Other new engines should also be on the cards, led by the new 3.0 litre M256 inline-six, which features a 48V electrical system.

2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class spotted undisguised
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class facelift or 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class as it is chronologically known, has been spotted sans camouflage ahead of its official debut in May.
We got the current S-Class in India just six months after its global debut and it may be the same story this time around too with the 2018 S-Class.
New Mercedes-Benz S Class These pictures tell us that this 2018 S-Class gets new bumpers, headlamps and exhausts as a part of the design package.
However, the biggest addition to this 2018 S-Class is expected to be a host of driving assistance systems including auto parking and autonomous driving systems.
Since Mercedes-Benz already has the infrastructure in place to assemble the S-Class locally, we believe that they will introduce the car through the CKD route straightaway.
