Apart from the engine changes, the Mercedes-Benz S -Class gets an array of internal and external features.

The subtle changes continue to the profile and to the rear of the vehicle with reworked tail lamps, a new rear bumper and a new set of alloy-wheel designs.

Throwing light about the interiors, the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is totally based on its palace on wheels.

Mercedes-Benz's new ute managed 90 per cent for adult occupant protection and 87 per cent for child protection. Both the engines come mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

The S450 with a V6 petrol engine produces 367 hp of power and 500Nm of torque thanks to twin turbocharging and inter-cooling. Performance wise, the petrol definitely has the upper hand with a 0-100km/h time of 5.1 seconds as against the diesel variant's leisurely time of 6 seconds.

2018 Mercedes S-Class comes with a state-of-the-art Airmatic pneumatic suspension system. The engine options are greener than before and the addition of the twin display setup and insane radar guided safety options make the new 2018 Mercedes S-Class a technological tour-de-force that continues to pamper the rich and the famous as they zip around the nation's roads. The headlamps have the ability to scan the road's surface, bends and more and then send the required info to the S-Class's AI unit.

Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive is there for passengers' safety. Minor changes include new controls on the steering, new upholstery options, revised infotainment and instrument screen which is tucked behind a single piece of glass and an option to charge your phone wirelessly.

In addition to the above updates, the new model also gets more safety features, most of which are radar-based.

The new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class arrived with a host of petrol and diesel engine options.

Moving to the interior, ventilated seats with massage function are standard on the S-Class.

The facelift which was showcased in China late previous year comes equipped with some of the latest radar-based technology which allows the vehicle to maintain a safe distance from vehicles in front, monitors crossing traffic to prevent lane changes when unsafe as well as automatically braking the auto in certain situations.

Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC: Controls the distance to vehicles in front up to a speed of 210 km/h and if necessary brakes the vehicle with up to 50 per cent of the maximum braking power.
