German leading luxury car manufacturer Mercedes launched the all-new S-Class Facelift in India on Monday. The S-Class Facelift is BS-VI emission compliant and is India’s first car to do so. Interestingly, the BS-VI compliant engine is also capable of running with the current BS-IV fuel quality.

The Mercedes-Benz S350 D is priced at Rs 1.33 crore, while the petrol version is priced at Rs 1.37 crore (ex-showroom New Delhi). 

The S-Class Facelift takes in new headlamps and tail lamps along with the new front and rear bumpers. It gets a new set of wheels as compared to the older version.

Facelift gets a typically well-made interior with two new 12.3-inch high definition screens that make up the infotainment and the central command unit. The S-Class also has wooden and leather interior options for the seats and the side panels. It even gets new seats with a new fragrance feature along with the obvious cooling, heating and massaging options.

The S-Class facelift features latest generation radar-based driving assistance systems that reduce the risk of accidents and enhance the protection of occupants as well as other road users.

"True to its legacy, the S-Class has emulated its global success in India and has had a phenomenal run in the country. To continue and build on this success, we have introduced the new version of our flagship saloon, which reaffirms its leadership status. This time around, it is not just intelligent, but also a responsible luxury,” said Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO of Mercedes-Benz India.

“By launching the first ever 'Made in India, for India' BS VI car, we have set a benchmark among all car manufacturers to support the Government in mitigating the rising pollution levels in the country. The new S-Class brings together luxury, design, and technology that meet the highest standards of perfection, surpassing expectations for a vehicle of this class." Folger further added.
