The 2021 Mercedes Benz S Class gets thorough makeovers both on the inside and with its exteriors
With time still remaining for the official global premiere of the car, pictures of the 2021 Mercedes Benz S Class have now surfaced on the internet. The spy shots that show a lightly camouflaged car, reveal much detail of the W223 Mercedes Benz S Class.
Judging by the pictures, the new S class gets an all-new front fascia. The LED headlamps and the integrated LED DRLs now resemble the recently unveiled Mercedes Benz E Class facelift in design. The large grille gets three horizontal slats and is covered densely in chrome. The design of the front bumper also looks fresh and the least resembles the E class facelift. The rear gets strong resemblance to the new E Class. ( I remember myself tryna relate the rear end of the new E class facelift to some familiar Audis of the time) The S Class gets thick chrome garnishes at the rear and on its twin exhaust tips.
The interior of the W223 Mercedes S class is a far cry from the car it replaces, in terms of equipment and luxury on offer. The spy shots reveal the cabin, dashboard, and instrumentation of the upcoming car. Minimalism infills the cabin of the new S Class. The dashboard has no sea of controls or rotary dials. Everything is contained into two major screens- a horizontally mounted unit for the instrumentation and a waterfall styled unit for the infotainment system. The infotainment system on the new S Class is hoped to get the latest iteration of the Mercedes Benz MBUX system.
The AC vents have been squared out and are four in number at the center and one each at either end. The steering wheel is a three-spoke flat-bottom unit, the horizontal spokes of which are further split into two smaller spokes. The steering seems to have capacitive touch controls similar to the ones on the facelifted E class.
The W223 S Class is hoped to have its global unveil later this year. A plethora of powertrains are hoped to be on offer upon launch, viz- petrol, diesel (for certain markets), mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid. We already have rumors suggesting the carmaker’s plans to axe the S600, coupe and cabriolets, which we are not yet sure of…
