Cosmetic surgery is quite popular nowadays. In fact, even Mercedes’ luxury brand, Maybach, will be seeing a little bit of a facelift before its ultimate descent into the automobile graveyard. As the next generation of the Mercedes S class gets taken to the next level, Maybach will turn into a thing of the past, but not before getting some new grilles and LED lights on its current three models. After the Maybach’s debut at the Beijing Auto Show in April, sources say that Mercedes will let the brand slip away into darkness and bring to light the new, higher tech S class.

The new S class is said to debut in 2014 and are rumored to contain many of the features found in the F800. The technologies include:

Traffic Jam Assist: A cruise control system that accelerates and decelerates by itself and can even follow turns up to 25MPH.

Range on Map System: Shows about how far the car can travel as a 360-degree graphic.

HMI Control System: This unique technology will record the hand gestures of the driver so it can then interpret the applications the driver wants to operate.

Multi-Drive Platform: Can be fitted with either a hydrogen fuel cell or plug-in hybrid system.

Check back for more updates on the future of the Mercedes S Class.

It does look bare and weird at first, but later you’ll realize how comfortable and fresh the ride is. Setting the appearance aside, it has really helpful features.

I actually love the car the way it is, it’s like riding to an informal Limousine. Plus, it looks very comfy and satisfying.
