Like the S-Class sedan, we’re expecting to see subtle design changes, including a sculpted front end and new wheels.You can also expect to see the same range of powertrain options introduced in the facelifted S-Class sedan, too. This includes the new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 powering the S560 and AMG S63 models capable of producing 463-hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
It’s unclear if the entry-level 3.0-liter V6 in the S450 will be offered, but chances are we can expect to see the V12-powered S600 and AMG S65 models in coupe or cabriolet form. The 2018 Mercedes S-Class is more than just a minor facelift, however.
Both the S-Class Cabriolet and S-Class Coupe will also benefit from autonomous driving tech, just like their four-door sibling, and will also be packed with all kinds of driver assistance features, from Emergency Stop Assist to Remote Parking.
The S-class coupe has high competition in its field, coming against the BMW 8-series, which is releasing this year. Not forgetting the brand-new Bentley Continental GT which is expected to include new features. Despite its competition, the S-class coupe is predicted do well with consumers.
