Breaking news: here is finally the all-new Mercedes S-Class!
First appearance of the German brand's flagship
Scheduled to arrive in less than three hours, the new generation Mercedes S-Class has made a premature appearance on the web. We can therefore admire for the very first time the exterior of the limousine from the star brand, the interior having already been previously revealed.
The design of the new S-Class comes as no surprise and thus follows in the footsteps of its little sisters, the C-Class and E-Class. The front end features a huge front grille that is larger than the current generation, to rival the latest BMW and Audi grilles.
The headlights are pinched more like on the facelifted E-Class. They use Digital Light technology to distribute their light beam extremely precisely. From the side, flush door handles are visible to further streamline the vehicle's appearance.
The most important change is at the rear of the limousine. The rear of the car is now fitted with horizontal taillights instead of the previously vertical ones. The new Mercedes S-Class will play the top-of-the-range role with the future SL, as the S-Class Coupé and Cabriolet are officially discontinued.
