Exterior styling familiar and an evolution over the current generation car.
Cabin is loaded with large screens and quite a departure from the 2020 S-Class.
The massive waterfall screen seems to replace all physical switchgear.
Spy shots of the new next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class have been circulating for about a year and a half but these images are the first to show the car without any camouflage. The new S-Class’s exterior design is little more than an evolution of the current S-Class with now-familiar updates to the taillights and the sharper front end. These styling cues came first with the new A-Class cars.
While the outer shell will shock no one, the images and video taken by cochespias and shared to Instagram of the cabin are a whole other story.
The dashboard has never been freer from controls, and yet busier when the giant center-screen is in use. Ahead of the new steering wheel, which features a two-zone sensor, is another huge display. Said steering wheel in the images is the Supersport with its flat-bottom and three-spoke layout. The horizontal spokes includes a series of touch-sensitive controls. In all, this interior is unlike any other Mercedes-Benz, at least for the moment.
The new 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class should hit the road in Europe later this year. This means the new flagship Benz sedan is likely about a year out for North America for the 2022 model year.
