The facelifted Mercedes-Benz S-Class was displayed only a few months ago globally and is expected to launch early next year in India. The facelifted car was recently spotted undergoing an emissions test on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. These are probably the real-world emissions tests conducted by ARAI and this includes tracking of emissions while driving on city streets and highways alike. The special testing equipment was seen tacked onto the car’s boot.
The new S-Class will come with new six cylinder in-line diesel and petrol engines in addition to the top-end V8 twin-turbo engine. The S-Class will also get powerful AMG options for its convertible, sedan and coupe configurations along with the LWB Maybach option. The car will have local assembling for all these versions. The Chakan factory of the brand is the only other facility that produces the S-Class Maybach outside of Germany.
The facelifted S-Class gets new tail lamps and headlamps along with new bumpers at the front and rear. There is a new set of alloy wheels as well. There are new 12.3 inch high definition screens which comprise the central command and infotainment units respectively. There are wood options for the interior trim of the facelifted S-Class along with leather seat options. There is a leather option for the side panels while a new fragrance function will be available for the seats in tandem with the regular massaging, heating and cooling options.
