Mercedes-Benz 2021 S-Class has a brand new look
Mercedes-Benz has just unveiled the next-generation of the S-Class, and it's a doozy.
The new S-Class is not a yearly refresh, it’s much more than that. As per usual, the motor represents safety, luxury, technology and high-class design.
You get an understated exterior, without extraneous lines or creases. In fact, the design is all about that silhouette; the long-raked hood, windshield and signature C-pillar on top of the rear wheel. The raised roof also gives it a profile that looks more like a sports car than an S-Class.
Currently, there are two models in the pipeline; a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six-engine and a 4.0-litre V-8 biturbo. The latter prduces almost 500 horsepower under the hood.
Inside the cabin, you get a spacious interior in a style that Mercedes is calling a ‘waterfall design’. The 12.3-inch screen in the dash is the star of the show, while there are also rear-cabin touchscreens for entertainment or productivity purposes.
Seats and door panels have been detailed in diamond-quilted leather contrasted with shiny trim. The roof panel also includes more than 250 LEDs for ambient lighting.
According to Mercedes-Benz, since the S-Class was introduced back in 1972 more than 2.7 million vehicles have been shifted.
The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class will hit roads in the first half of 2021.
