The European media is expecting the range-topping S-Class Mercedes-Benz sedan in mid-life facelift form to debut next month at the Shanghai Motor Show and New York Auto Show.
These spy photos have emerged from Saudishift showing the latest S-Class will score minor revisions to the front and rear plus some interior changes.
Up-front we can see a minor change to the bumper plus re-done Multibeam headlights and three-layer LED strips.
The rear also gains a minor bumper revision and tail-light changes plus some extra trim finishes and revised tailpipes.
Inside, is the three-spoke steering wheel from the S-Class Coupe and a dual-display instrumentation/infotainment system.
An interesting addition is the S 560 which rumours suggest will be powered by the new 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine.
The S-Class will also pick-up the new M256 straight six-cylinder engine with an electric compressor and Integrated Starter-Alternator.
On the technology front, expect plenty of new driver aids including autonomous parking and autonomous steering (the latter for brief periods on freeways).
