Following one of the most active vehicle-introduction years in its history, Mercedes-Benz continues the momentum in 2018, introducing additional new and revised models.

A significantly revised S-Class Sedan line debuts with new powertrains and the next level in Intelligent Drive driver assistance technologies. The current-generation S-Class has been the global best-selling sedan in the premium category since its introduction in 2013, with more than 300,000 sold.

A quick glance at the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan shows an elegant design update with new bumpers, "triple torch" design headlights and LED taillamps with a "stardust" effect. Changes beneath the surface go much deeper, however.

Among highlights:

  • Cabin upgrades are abound in these premium luxury sedans for 2018. A new generation of dual 12.3" high-resolution displays with a single bonded glass panel form the wide-screen digital cockpit. The driver can also choose from three different display styles (Classic, Sport and Progressive). Two new wood trim and three new upholstery selections become available, with standard Nappa Leather on all V8 models. A new steering wheel integrates Touch Control Buttons that work with a swiping action, as on a smartphone.
  • A new COMAND head unit generation expands phone capability, and inductive wireless charging works with Qi-compatible devices. The new ENERGIZING Comfort feature is a world-first that links various comfort systems, including climate control, ambient lighting, massage and fragrancing functions. The driver can configure a combination of settings as a specific "wellness setup" and store favorites.
