The Next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class was seen again in a series of espionage shots. This time the pictures give us an insight into the flagship luxury car of the three-pointed star brand.
Based on the espionage recordings of the upcoming S-Class from Carpix (via Autoblog) we can see that the car doesn’t offer a major overhaul on its outside. After all, the S-Class has just been revised for the 2018 model year.
Notable changes to the prototype included the lower and slimmer nose, as well as the smaller placement of the headlights compared to the 2018 S-Class. There also appears to be a slight adjustment to the vehicle’s folds, especially those that run right under the window sills.
It is possible that we are still missing some important details in the design of the next S-Class, as the spied car in the photos is wrapped in a heavy camouflage. In addition, the product in the photos is still at an early stage of development.
What’s in the next generation of the S-Class?
The exciting thing about the new spy footage from the S-Class, however, is that it gets us into the car. From there we could see that the instrument panel and dashboard had a lot of updates.
Instead of having two wide screens directly behind the steering wheel, the prototype now carries a single display that runs across the driver’s side of the cockpit. However, the new screen seems to be sticking like a sore thumb since it’s not embedded in the dashboard. We hope this is not the case with the final version of the car.
In addition, there are four narrow ventilation slots in the middle part of the top of the dashboard between the driver and front passenger. These are located near the Defogger ventilation slots.
According to reports, it could be a while before the world premiere of the next S-Class takes place as Mercedes has just released the revamped version of the current generation car.
The next-generation model will most likely have the new in-line six-cylinder engine from Mercedes (the same as in the current CLS), and its high-performance versions could have the twin-turbo V8 unit.
