What do you do when you dominate the competition? In the case of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the answer is to keep things fresh. And that means an update of the big sedan is making its debut this week at the Shanghai Motor Show.
At first glance, there are no big surprises, the exterior and interior updates modest, at most. As with the current version of the Teutonic sedan, the emphasis is on technology, with the 2018 Mercedes S-Class introducing the latest suite Intelligent Drive and advanced driver assistance systems.
“The development of the new S-Class was extremely extensive. With a whole series of new features and functions, the S-Class remains a technological pioneer,” said Ola Källenius, the head of R&D for the Mercedes brand, ahead of the S-Class debut in Shanghai.
