AutoComplete: 2018 Mercedes S-Class bows in ShanghaiPlus: Volkswagen has a neat concept with a bad name, and Ward's outlines the 10 best interiors of 2017.
Here's what's making news on road show. [SOUND]. The Mercedes Bends S class is a luxury brands flag ship and it's one of the most advances tech cars on the road, so even a refresh is a big deal. The twenty eighteen S class comes in multiple flavors from the base s four fifty to the law wheel based l bock s block fifty to monstrous V12 powered GS65. All models receive new bumpers, new headlights and tail lights and a host of driver assisted system improvements. Expect most, if not all, to hit show rooms later this year. Volkswagen has a beautiful concept in Shanghai with a terrible name. The ID Crozz, yes with two z's at the end, is an electric cross over based on the same platform As it's ID hatchback and ID buzz, MPV Show Cars. It'll run for about 300 miles and produce some pretty decent acceleration thanks to electric motors on each axle. Given Volkswagen's insistence on introducing more than two dozen EV over the next five to ten years I'd bet on something like this eventually landing at dealers, hopefully with a better name. Ward's back with his ten best interiors list for 2017, and the winners come in just about every possible price. At the low end you have winners like Subaru's Impreza and Honda CR-V. Move on up through mid level offerings like Mazda CX9 and eventually you end up at the heavy hitters, including the Maserati Levante, Lexus LC and Bentley Bentayga. It just goes to show you that good design doesn't need to cost you a million bucks. Find more on these stories over theroadshow.com. We'll talk to you tomorrow.
