The facelifted Mercedes-Benz S560 Coupe and Cabriolet duo is now available in Thailand, priced at 15.99 and 16.72 million baht respectively for the sporty AMG Premium trim level. That’s 500,000 baht (RM62,532) more than before and equivalent to RM2 million and RM2.09 million, respectively.

It was earlier this month that Mercedes-Benz Malaysia launched four members of the S-Class facelift range, which included the S450L, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe and the S560 Cabriolet, as seen here.

The latter is priced locally at RM1.31 million, which is an astonishing RM780k less than what it costs in Thailand. To illustrate, that difference can get you an AMG C63S Coupe (before GST 0%) and a luxury weekend holiday for two. We get the S-Class Coupe in S63 AMG form for RM1.46 million, which is RM540k less than the Thai S560 Coupe.

The S560 Cabriolet is powered by a 4.0 litre biturbo V8 engine with 469 hp and 700 Nm of torque, replacing the 4.7 litre V8 from the pre-facelift. The new M176 motor comes with cylinder deactivation tech and is mated to a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic transmission. The big cruiser does 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.

The A217 S-Class Cabriolet gets new front and rear bumpers, with the face adorned with a familiar diamond grille, chrome-plated front splitter and bigger air inlets. The rear gets new OLED tail lights, with each cluster featuring 33 thin OLED elements that are printed on a glass plate. The luminance varies depending on ambient brightness, driving condition, braking and turn signals; while a ‘light show’ accompanies locking and unlocking.

Inside, the dual 12.3-inch screens that form the widescreen cockpit are no longer separated, and there’s a new steering wheel with buttons that respond to swiping motions. There’s a Comand Online infotainment system (with updated interface) that offers 3D HDD GPS navigation and smartphone connectivity, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as wireless charging.

Here, the ragtop S is equipped with Airmatic air suspension with infinitely variable damper control, and driving assistance systems such as Active Distance Control Distronic and Active Steering Assist. Once again, it goes for RM1.31 million, which is RM780k less than what Thai tycoons pay.
