Two Mercedes-Benz S-Class Prototypes were recently caught on camera during testing. Each sedan was fitted with a heavy zebra camouflage that hides the features of the car. However, some partially exposed areas and bulges reveal some surprising details about the upcoming S-Class model.
According to walkoART, the source of the spy video, we’re looking at the 2020 model year S-Class cars. These are expected to be presented in 2019.
There are many things we should look forward to in the upcoming S-Class. First, the cars appear longer than their current generation models. That certainly means more legroom compared to its predecessors.
Since the S-Class is Mercedes’ flagship, it is expected to be equipped with cutting-edge technology. One of them is most likely that of the brand Digital light Technology that uses two million micromirrors controlled by an intelligent system. The function prevents glare from oncoming traffic and ensures optimal lighting for the S-Class driver at night.
However, the most confusing stuff in the video can be seen on the door handles of the two S-Class cars. We couldn’t help but wonder why Mercedes had bothered to hide it. This could only mean that significant changes will be made in these areas as well.
It is possible that the door handles are equipped with sensors that help improve the safety of the vehicle, especially when it comes to driver access. This is just wishful thinking on our part, but it could use fingerprint technology or mobile scanners to allow easy entry into the vehicle.
