Wearing a lot less disguise compared to other pre-production prototypes we’ve seen, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class for 2013 doesn’t seem to be radically different from its previous models. However, judging from the cladding which hides the face of this new S-Class, we cannot say for sure how it will yet look. One design which garnered crticism, the bulbous wheel arches, seems to have disappeared, leaving sleek, elegant lines that would reflect the more conservative tastes of this luxury car’s clientele. Combined with the huge grille that marks it unmistakably as a Mercedes, this big car will undoubtedly exude a presence that will overshadow most other cars on the road.
As befits the S-Class, it is safe to say that the new model will benefit from the latest performance, safety and efficiency technologies that the German automaker can bring to their premium model. The final look and features of the newest S-Class will be revealed in 6 months, when it is scheduled to be launched at the Paris Motor Show.
