The most recent model from famous German car manufacturer Mercedes named 2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 will hit the market slightly modified. We can expect some changes, but only the slight one. The S-Class is as we know very good, and all models in S-Class offer a high level of luxury and elegance. Exactly the same thing we can expect with the redesigned S65. We have some official photos (finally) of this vehicle, and in the following review, we will try to present you this model as best as we can. Most of the changes we can expect on the front side of this model. However, the interior is also modified.
2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 Redesign
As we already wrote in the intro, this model will receive some cosmetic changes from the outside. According to pictures, we can expect slightly modified headlights compared to the previous model. The change will be in the layout. More precisely, we can expect a new layout under the glass. Also, we can expect repositioned turn signals, and also revised MULTIBEAM LED headlamps. The grille of this model will also receive some slight modifications. Instead of four double horizontal lines, we can now expect three. The Mercedes logo will stay in the middle. Also, it seems like slats no longer make contact with the frame at the edges. Standard wheels are 20 inches aluminum alloy (16 spokes twists on pictures), but optionally you could choose many combinations.

Thanks to that fact, we have the impression of floating effect. The bumper is camouflaged, and that just means that we can expect changes in this part as well. According to some reliable rumors, we can expect larger side intakes as well as a sporty splitter and slightly reshaped center vent. At the rear side, we can expect new top of the class LED clusters for the taillights. Some rumors suggest that we can expect two new exterior colors, but we don’t have official information about that. New 2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 sedan will provide newly Mercedes Multibeam LED matrix headlight technology.
Mercedes-AMG S65 2018 Interior design
The interior design of new Mercedes-AMG S65 2018 is still very mysterious, there are the only couple of photos from the cabin. However, when we talk about the newly Mercedes, the rumors are something that is normal. The cabin will also receive some partial changes. However, those changes are related to new technology and safety features. The design of the cabin will remain pretty much the same as before. Probably the biggest change compared to the previous model will be the steering wheels. More precisely, we can expect touch-sensitive buttons on the steering wheel. Trough them, you can control the infotainment system that will be most likely updated. This model will also receive Drive Pilot which is awesome. Unfortunately, we don’t have more pieces of information about the interior design and as soon as we receive some new, we will let you know.
