In the purest German tradition, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe facelift will stick to limited visual changes, with the test vehicles revealing the styling transformations one by one. And because the development procedure still hasn’t reached its lasts, the model that was just recently spied in German traffic isn’t eager to reveal too much.
The most apparent redesign relocations will come from the refreshed fascias, which we’ve recently identified on another prototype, albeit one that was covered in camouflage. Additionally, the front and rear light clusters of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe will get brand-new inner graphics, however it’s still prematurely to talk about such information. Taking a peek inside this prototype in this clip, we seem to be dealing with the new steering wheel, which appears to load a more rounded design, however the spy video doesn’t enable us to be 100 percent particular.
On the within, Mercedes-Benz will fit it with a brand-new guiding wheel, while an ultra-wide screen will change the two different ones discovered in the present model. Upgraded upholstery for the seats and brand-new colors in the Designo range will likewise be readily available, while a restyled touchpad on the center armrest will replace the one discovered in the pre-facelift model.
On the powertrain front, the S400 will ditch its twin-turbo V6 heart in favor of a brand-new 3.0-liter straight-six– the German car manufacturer is set to present a new inline-six engine household this year, one that will mix traditional turbocharging with an electric compressor working with a 48V system. Affalterbach’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 will animate both the S550/S500, as well as the S63, obviously in different states of tune. As for the collector-friendly S65 Coupe, the twin-turbo V12 powerplant of the model will just get a modest output and efficiency bump.
While the revamped Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan is set to land this fall, we’ll need to wait on next year to fulfill the modified S-Class Coupe, which will hit the marketplace as a 2019 model.
