Technology and Cabin Updates in the 2018 S-Class
There are a few notable changes to the cabin in these sedans, and it starts with the classic Mercedes-Benz wood trim. There are two new wood options to go along with the three new seating upholstery options. Even the steering wheel has undergone an overhaul with Touch Control Buttons for a quicker response. The massive dual 12.3 inch displays give you a quick and easy view to whatever you need. You know that Mercedes-Benz is usually on the forefront of innovating automotive features, right? Well if you didn’t before, now you do. The new ENERGIZING® Comfort feature delivers industry-first luxury by customizing your climate control, ambient lighting, and a relaxing massage.
This is where the adrenaline kicks in. There are now three new powertrains to choose from, and those include:
- S 450/S 450 4MATIC: 3.0L V6 biturbo engine; 362 hp
- S 560/S 560 Maybach 4MATIC:0L V8 biturbo; 463 horsepower
- AMG S 63: Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo; 603 horsepower
In addition to these engine updates, there will also be new features such as RACE START® (increases acceleration time), AMG DYNAMIC SELECT® (offers four modes for a more personalized drive), and MAGIC BODY CONTROL® suspension with the CURVE® tilting function (increases comfort when making sharp turns).
