The S400 has been accessible for two or three years with Mercedes’s regularly upgrade releases, in order to stay competitive. The currently available variant – 2016 Mercedes S400 Hybrid presents the very first hybrid car introduced by the company in its line of hybrid production. This hybrid and drive technology for S400 was developed in a joint venture with BMW. So, naturally, after gained tremendous success with their very first Hybrid variant, in order to stay competitive, the company is planning to use the same underpinning just like they did for the 7- Series Active Hybrid, but all-new 2017 Mercedes S400 Hybrid should be pretty different from the S350.

All-new 2017 Mercedes S400 Hybrid shouldn’t suffer big aerodynamic tweaks in the height, only planned, pretty visible change, exterior wise, will be the Blue Hybrid badges that will be located on S400’s rear end.

According to the latest rumors, the newly designed main grille will provide for entire vehicle somehow more attractive as well as more aggressive overall appearance, the both lights, the head, and the rear ones should be LED and quite curvy and, at the same time very appealing. This brand-new designed variant should possess an additional fuel cap, which we haven’t had the opportunity to see on the other models. That will slightly boost aerodynamic abilities of this model.
On the other hand, the interior should be, at least, half spectacular as well as interesting as its exterior.
