The current S-Class was launched in 2013 and brought so many new things on the market particularly in the segment of safety department. Also, this model arrived in dealerships with sportier appearance and with more comfortable cabin compared to the previous generation of S-Class. Back in 2013, this model had no rivals because both the Audi A8 and BMW 7 series was more than 3 years old. This time is different and BMW has new 7 series and Cadillac Company just joined the full-size segment with a fantastic new model named CT6. Considering all the facts, it is normal why Mercedes is looking to upgrade the S-Class for the upcoming year. According to Mercedes, they already began testing the facelift model and we can expect the modified 2017 Mercedes S-Class to hit the dealerships by the end of this year. Next review will show you more interesting things about this model.
2017 Mercedes S-Class – Luxury Design:
The exterior design of the S-Class has always been very nice and luxury and that case we can expect and this time. There is going to be some slight redesigns on its exterior design but nothing too much conspicuously. According to pictures from testing, we can notice that manufacturers are preparing a new design for the front grille, but nothing too much, just a few slight redesigns. The higher frame, which is visible, appears to be the same as before. The headlights of the approaching model are modified and we can expect the newest LED technology here. The small fog lights powered by the LEDs are located on the sides of the bumper. Nicely designed five spoke alloy wheels will be very large, probably 19 or even 20 inches in size. At the back, everything will remain pretty much the same as it was in the previous model including the taillights, the bumper and the chrome trim on the trunk lid.
The interior design of the approaching 2017 Mercedes S-Class is phenomenal and in this segment engineers did a great job. At the first glance, everything you can notice is the same as before, and visually it should remain untouched except for a few nips and tucks in the dashboard. An important change is the addition of steering wheel with touch-sensitive buttons. Thanks to that fact, you will be able to control features of the infotainment system using only your thumbs and that will certainly improve your safety in this vehicle. Also, the anticipated 2017 Mercedes S-Class receive an upgraded infotainment system. The best thing is that you will be able to choose Drive Pilot as an optional feature.
