What is it?
Since its launch in 2014, the big two-door has gained a strong following for its svelte appearance, which arguably represents the best expression of the German car maker’s latest design lineage.
There are some subtle tweaks, including an altered bumper design, additional chrome exterior highlights, new OLED rear lights and revised tail-pipes, but they hardly help to distinguish the 2018 model visually.
Inside, Mercedes-Benz has provided the reworked S-Class Coupé with a revised instrument cluster sporting new graphics, an upgraded infotainment system supporting 3D topographical map displays, a new Active Distance Control cruise control system and Active Steering Assist function.
Another new function is Mercedes’ Car to X communication system, which relays messages between cars and the traffic infrastructure to give the driver information about potential hazards over the horizon. This has been described as the first step in the firm’s e-mobility plan.
