Mercedes & # 39; s range has expanded significantly over all market segments in recent years, but the S-Class will remain the undisputed flagship forever. The spectacularly shaped EQS will complement Daimler's luxury to signal the wave of electrification of the future, and the two will peacefully coexist in the three-point star's wide range. EQS will undoubtedly be more visually interesting as spy pictures have suggested, but today we are here to talk about the traditional S-Class.
By maintaining the classic shape of a sedan, the W223 has been filmed by Carspotter Jeroen went hard around the Nürburgring where the test driver pushed the next S-class to its limits through the many corners of the challenging track . Hiding under the unusually thick camouflage on the doors are probably the pop-out handles we've already seen on the Maybach version, which will be more than just showing, as the smoother side profile will increase the car's aerodynamic efficiency to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
The styling is still a mystery due to the extensive disguise, but the headlights follow Mercedes' latest design language seen on CLS. In the rear, the visibly wider taillights extend to the tailgate to give the S-Class more presence on the road, as if it needed it. Seeing Mercedes & # 39; s crown jewel go out on the green hell makes us think of future sporting derivatives of the big sedan, but a reality check abruptly ends our dreams of an S65 since the V12 is phased out. In other words, the offerings for the AMG S-Class come top with the S63.
The adjacent footage is of no significance when it comes to S-Class & # 39; s interior, but previous spy photos have revealed that there will be some huge changes as far as dashboard layouts. When we talk about all things big, the touch screen will be significantly larger and apply a portrait-oriented layout that is previewed by the aforementioned EQS in concept form.

Mercedes has not said a word about the technical specifications to the updated range, but has promised to throw some details on the new S in the coming months. The full disclosure is scheduled to take place at some point in 2020 when the full-size luxury sedan will enter production at Daimler's new Factory 56 assembly plant in Sindelfingen, Germany reserved for the larger and more expensive models.
