2020 Mercedes S-Class | Three years after its mid-career restyling, the Mercedes S-Class is about to get a makeover next year. The new model, spearheaded by the star brand, was photographed in early February and has some explosive (interior) changes compared to the current generation.
In the segment of large luxury sedans, mostly occupied by the German, the Mercedes S-Class is a benchmark in the field.
Uncovered again in full winter testing, the future model of Mercedes needed an aesthetic and technological overhaul to be at the level of the Audi A8 (2018) and BMW 7 Series restyled last January which present a high-tech level very impressive.
At first sight, even if external changes are undeniable, it is inside that the revolution will take place. Say goodbye to the classic horizontal screens overlooking the 4 aerators and hello to this huge screen as impressive as an Ipad Pro.
A rare piece that will put the 2020 Mercedes S-Class in direct competition in terms of screen size with the Tesla Model 3 and Model S (15 inches and 17 inches) and the Volkswagen Touareg (15.3 inches). They already have screens equal in size to those of an average laptop. Nevertheless, that of the Mercedes seems of greater size.
The button shortcut line present under the aerators currently, will fit directly below the screen on the new version. An ergonomic choice for engineers, to see when using in real conditions. Note that the screen will likely remain the same for instrumentation.
Of course, like all the future models of the brand, the MBUX system will appear on this S-Class and on the future E-Class scheduled for 2021.

As for the exterior styling, the evolution will be less impressive than inside but we can expect the Mercedes fashion of the moment: tapered lights, a reworked grille, and three distinctive LEDs to the S-Class. guess on the pictures, flush door cuffs that will retract into the Jaguar I-Pace or DS 3 Crossback body style.
The seventh generation S-Class S (W223) will be based on a modular platform developed by the Stuttgart firm, MEA, from which a multitude of electric models, including the EQS, are expected to emerge. This platform, it must be remembered cost Mercedes about 10 billion euros
