The current generation of Mercedes-BenzS-Class flagship was introduced in 2013. The mid-life update of the S-Class Sedan has been caught testing a few times in Germany, but now the S-class Cabriolet has been spotted undergoing cold-weather tests at the Arctic Circle.

The S-Class saloon would be the first to be updated, followed shortly by the S-Class Coupe. The S-Class Cabrio will follow suit. So here we can see the test mule with cladded front and rear bumpers, updated taillights and possibly even new headlight signature. But the most prominent and important changes will be on the inside. 

The new S-Class family will come with a single widescreen system, stretching from instrument cluster to centre console, dominating the dashboard. It is similar to one seen on the Mercedes-Maybach vehicles sans the buttons. The centre console will feature a redesigned interface with a new touchpad surface. Another update for the facelifted S-Class will be the use of a new steering wheel that looks sportier than what’s being offered as of now.

As far as the engine line-up is concerned, Mercedes-Benz is expected to equip the facelifted S-Class with a new range of engines. It is speculated that the existing V6 engines will be replaced by new inline-six petrol units. The Cabriolet range could get the new 4.0-litre V8 engine.

The updated Luxo-barge will debut this year as a 2018 model year. It was rumoured to be showcased at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, but that seems unlikely. Mercedes-Benz will bring the new and updated S-Class to India right after it goes on sale internationally.
