High-end luxury coupe buyers have a new version of a favorite. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet models have been revealed ahead of their debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show featuring a fine-tuned design, more features and updated powertrains.
As expected, the coupe and cabriolet models are seeing the same changes recently implemented on the S-Class sedan. This means the front fascia has been changed out with a slightly new look, while new LED headlights look more detailed and technical than their predecessor. Unique to the coupe and cabriolet are new OLED taillights that really offer up a unique appearance compared to traditional LED lamps.
The interior of the two-door versions has also seen the same updates as the sedan. This means the latest version of the COMAND infotainment system is in tow, while finishings have also been slightly revised. Subsequently, Mercedes has added its new Energizing Comfort system to wrap occupants in supreme luxury environments, including scent, massaging seats, and more.
Also like the sedan, the S560 is now powered by Mercedes’ twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 with 463 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. This V-8 also features variable displacement ability, meaning some cylinders shutdown during light loads to conserve fuel.
Mercedes-AMG has also updated their versions of the two-door S-Class models with a fresh take on its iconic Panamericana grille design and two massive powerplants under the hood. S63 buyers will make do with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that hammers out 603 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque, while S65 buyers get a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12 with 621 horsepower and a staggering 738 pound-feet of torque.
All variants of the new S-Class coupe and cabriolet will arrive in the U.S. in mid-2018. Pricing will be announced closer to that time.
