Till now we had only seen the all-new 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-class in some of the spy shots covered under heavy camouflage. But today seems to the day when we get to what exactly the new S-class looks like as a fresh set of upside images have taken over the internet with a bang revealing the latest iteration of this flagship sedan by none other than Mercedes.

However, to some eyes, the new Mercedes Benz S-class looks similar to the current E-class as the new S-class supports similar LED headlights and a heavy chrome lathered front grille with three horizontal blades. So let’s have a look at what will we get to see in the new S-class.

  • As seen in the spy shots the new 2021 S-class boasts a very simplistic dashboard which is dominated by split-screen display including a waterfall style touchscreen infotainment system and a landscape-oriented fully digital instrument system.
  • The centre console is expected to function on the latest version of Mercedes’ MBUX system. Just behind the fully digital instrumental system there also appears to be a massive pinnacle which is likely to accommodate the hardware for all-the driver-assist system, followed a set of single column buttons placed just beneath the infotainment system.
  • Other notable changes include automatic climate control, 8 AC vents- four studded in the centre console while 2 each at either end of the dashboard. Surprisingly the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-class is also seen featuring a sporty yet classy spilt-spoked flat-bottom steering wheel, housing some of the rumoured capacitive touch control similar to that on the current-gen Mercedes-Benz E-class.
