What is it?

It comes as little surprise that Mercedes-Benz has gone light on the styling changes in its mid-life facelift of the S-Class Coupé.

Since its launch in 2014, the big two-door has gained a strong following for its svelte appearance, which arguably represents the best expression of the German car maker’s latest design lineage.

There are some subtle tweaks, including an altered bumper design, additional chrome exterior highlights, new OLED rear lights and revised tail-pipes, but they hardly help to distinguish the 2018 model visually.

Inside, Mercedes-Benz has provided the reworked S-Class Coupé with a revised instrument cluster sporting new graphics, an upgraded infotainment system supporting 3D topographical map displays, a new Active Distance Control cruise control system and Active Steering Assist function.

Another new function is Mercedes’ Car to X communication system, which relays messages between cars and the traffic infrastructure to give the driver information about potential hazards over the horizon. This has been described as the first step in the firm’s e-mobility plan.

The big news, though, is the appearance of a new twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine based on the more heavily tuned unit used in the Mercedes-AMG S63. This new engine replaces the old twin-turbocharged 4.7-litre V8 from the outgoing S500. Its additional 13bhp takes power up to 462bhp, while torque is the same at 516lb ft.

With a pair of twin-scroll turbochargers operating centrally within the space between the cylinder banks, thus requiring shorter induction paths than those of its predecessor, the new engine has not only better low-end response but also greater mid-range flexibility and a sturdier top end.

Mercedes confirms new entry-level baby AMG

  Mercedes confirms new entry-level baby AMG AMG CEO Tobias Moers has confirmed an A35 is on the way.Currently the closest thing to a baby AMG model is the A250 AMG, a car that has merely been breathed on by the Affalterbach tuning house, but the new model will be a full AMG effort, and will likely be pitted against the Audi S3 and BMW M140i, while the A45 will continue to take on heavyweights like the RS3, M2 and Volkswagen Golf R.

With Sport mode engaged, at which a series of flaps open to increase the volume of the exhaust system, it’s also terrifically melodious.

Switch into Comfort mode to trigger a more conservative set of software maps and the new V8 is wonderfully refined and satisfyingly reserved in nature. On light throttle loads, a cylinder deactivation function seamlessly closes down four cylinders to improve fuel economy.

The standard nine-speed torque converter automatic gearbox also appears to have taken a step forward. In automatic mode, it's ultra keen to shift up to ensure the best possible economy and lowest emissions, and the shifts feel crisper and softer than before.

These cars prove six wheels are better than four

  These cars prove six wheels are better than four Cars should have four wheels, right? Wrong! Well, at least it is if these mad, six-wheeled monsters are anything to go by. They might not come along very often, but when they do a six-wheeled car certainly makes a statement. Whether they’re 50 per cent better, though, is still up for debate.British car modification firm Kahn Design has just revealed a six-wheeled Land Rover Defender convertible – which reminded us to delve into the archives and have a look for some other half-dozen wheeled specials.

The electro-mechanical steering is very light and bereft of much feedback at the straight-ahead, although it gains heft and feel as you apply lock.

On more demanding roads, the S560 is surprisingly proficient, with nicely progressive and well-controlled body movements that belie the car's considerable size. The S650 turns in keenly, and with Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic system doling out drive to each wheel, there's sufficient grip and excellent traction to keep things tidy when you start to push.

The car's most compelling traits, though, are evident at a constant cruise, where superb refinement and excellent ride quality provide it with outstanding long-distance properties.

If you're in the market for a big, luxury grand tourer, you're certainly well-catered for, and while the previous S500 was a good car by all accounts, it left the AMG models to bridge the gap to the Bentleys and Aston Martins of the coupé world.

The changes made to the standard S-Class Coupé have turned that good coupé into a sumptuous mile-muncher with a dash of added potency. Suddenly, this car has moved from the sidelines straight into the thick of the action, all without losing the cossetting refinement its saloon sibling is renowned for.
