“Espionage” photos of the new Mercedes S-Class road cruiser have appeared on the Internet.
The lifespan of the current S-Class is slowly coming to an end, as evidenced by the photos of almost completely exposed pre-production copies of its successor that were published on Instagram.
The exterior design of the new generation, which bears the factory designation W223, is a further development of the appearance of the current model with inevitable changes in line with the new style language of Mercedes.
This is particularly noticeable at the rear of the vehicle, which is adorned with a significantly different brake light, but also at the front, where the headlights have been redesigned, and to a lesser extent on the grille.
As expected, the changes in the interior are more drastic.
Practically everything is new and Mercedes has decided to digitize the dashboard as much as possible so that the screens are no longer discreetly integrated into the cockpit, but protrude like two large tablets.
This interior was announced by the German manufacturer last year with the Vision EQS concept, when we first saw the new design of the ventilation openings, which now also applies to the future Mercedes S-Class.
However, some elements of the interior leave the impression of imperfection, such as: B. the “hole” between the instrument panel and the windshield. It should be noted, however, that the vehicle in the photos is still in the development phase before production.
