Arriving in style: The 2021 Mercedes S-Class - specs, price and release date
If you're a very successful business person doing business things, or just someone who appreciates true comfort, then you'll be pleased to know that the 2021 Mercedes S-Class is just around the corner. It will be larger and more spacious than the model we have today. You should be excited.
How much will the 2021 Mercedes S-Class cost and when can I see one?
The new generation of S-Class will have a starting price of around £75,000, which is pretty much the same as the current model, but will sky-rocket once you add a few options. It will arrive some time later this year.
2021 Mercedes S-Class engine options and power stats:
The 2021 S-Class is set to really focus on the use of electrification, which will not only boost performance but also range. That car will come with a turbocharged V6 engine, which works alongside an electric motor offering up to 50 kilometres (30 miles) of electric range.
There have been rumours that the next S-Class will come with a fully electric option but it doesn't look like that will be possible just yet. This is due to battery technology not being advanced enough.
2021 Mercedes S-Class looks and specs:
The 2021 Mercedes S-Class is due to be much more autonomous driving-friendly. This will involve advancing the current car’s 'Distronic Active Proximity Control' and 'Active Steer Assist' systems.
The current generation of S-Class can achieve level two autonomy but this will likely be upgraded in the 2021 model. It will have 'Drive Pilot capabilities', which links to GPS satellites and is the same system on the new E-Class. So with all this, we can expect near full autonomous driving.
Another fancy feature we will see on the 2021 S-Class is an augmented reality sat-nav, which projects directions from maps onto the windscreen. This will make it look as though the directions are painted on the road in front of you. Pretty cool eh? This means it is basically the same as the sat nav screen on the new A-Class but now on your windscreen.
In terms of looks, you can definitely tell there has been a bit of a design change. Both the front and rear lights look to have lost a bit of weight as well as the overall design looking a bit sleeker.
