Mercedes-Benz seems to have sent an early prototype of the next generation S-Class out for testing. Just a few months ago, the updated current S-Class has been unveiled, so a new generation of the German flagship will not come before 2020.
It was back in 2013 when Mercedes-Benz presented the current S-Class to the world. This year, the full-scale S-Class family, which now includes a coupé (C217) and Cabriolet (A217) since this W222 generation, has been upgraded. This means that Mercedes’s largest model has begun in the second half of his career. And that means again that the new generation is on track and the first test kilometers seem to be made.
Unfortunately, there is still not much to say about the new generation S class. Possibly the brand chooses more aluminum and carbon fiber for its construction. Either way: the weight is undoubtedly further reduced, something that goes together with the launch of a range of more efficient engines. Coupé, Cabriolet, and Maybach variants can of course count on returning. In the coming months, we expect to meet more and more prototype S-Class cars.
