The day of exposure for the all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class appears to be drawing closer and closer, as the German designers are allowing us to sample more of their work. Today, we have a fresh spy video of the 2021 model in action.
2021 Mercedes S-Class Design
The German car manufacturer has a substantial variety of models it needs to develop before it can reveal anything. However, there’s most likely going to be less variation than in the past. This specific prototype sports the longer wheelbase, which will become standard, and its grille means a regular equipment line, not an AMG or a hybrid.
Taking a look at the front, we right away find that the headlights are now narrower, sporting a design similar to the CLS. The three lines of LEDs over the top are gone, replaced by a single brow and small dots flanking the main projectors.
The big black boxes are standing out of all the doors to existing to cover the new flush-fitting door deals with, which we have not seen on any other Mercedes model yet. Speaking of which, the interior is also unlike anything else out there, though we can validate that this design will also be found on the next C-Class.
Finally, the camouflage does not allow much to slip out at the back, though we do capture glances of long, taillights, sort of like those of the A-Class sedan.
2021 Mercedes S-Class Engine
Even though this is going to be a lot longer car, the general weight will not increase by much due to new products for the chassis. Some of the engines that will power the 2021 S-Class are already coming out on other models, such as the hybrid V8 that’s under the hood of the GLE 580. We believe that much of the AMG range will likewise have electric help, starting with an inline-six S 53 and ending with the flagship, which is coming much later, the S73 with a Porsche-rivaling PHEV-V8. It’s an odd name, we know, however, there was an SL 73 AMG back in 2000.
