- this teaser photo is our first official look at the new 2021 mercedes-benz s-class.
- photos of the luxury sedan's exterior and interior had already leaked out previously.
- mercedes says that the new s-class will make its debut in the second half of this year.
this teaser photo from mercedes-benz doesn't mark the first time we've seen the new generation of the s-class flagship, given that leaked photos of the new model appeared on instagram a few weeks ago. but this is the first time that mercedes is officially sharing some real information about the new s-class, expected to be called w223.
the official photo confirms that the the new s-class's front end looks stately and appropriately upscale, but hardly a departure from the current s-class in terms of design. this new model seems to be an evolutionary step forward in terms of its exterior styling, although bigger changes are coming inside. a huge touchscreen display dominates the dashboard and the entire interior layout looks far more modern than before. mercedes says that the new s-class will put an emphasis on artificial intelligence, meaning it's likely to debut a more advanced version of the hey mercedes virtual assistant and voice-command system.
expect the new s-class to be powered by a range of inline-six and v-8 engines, all with some sort of electric assistance. high-powered amg models will be part of the lineup eventually. look for more information to come as mercedes prepares to debut the new generation of the s-class during the second half of this year.
