Spyshots: 2013 Mercedes Benz S-Class Interior Revealed
That’s why our dedicated team of photographers took a sneak peak inside the new S-Class that’s supposed to be more roomy than before, especially in the back. The current generation has been the most successful luxury saloon in the world since it was launched in 2005, so it shouldn’t surprise you that some of the stuff in there is familiar. That digital screen instead of analog gages has been kept, but the interior has been subtly changed as well.
For instance, the air vents on the dash are now four in number and cylindrical instead of the two rectangular fixtures in the current generation. What’s more, the steering wheel has been changed a bit to have a more sporty design, while the buttons mounted there have also been refreshed.
Based on these spyshots, we can tell you that the new Mercedes S-Klasse appears to be longer and boasts a slightly bigger wheelbase. The clear focus should be creating an extraordinary amount of interior space and legroom.
In the engine department, the S550 is expected to use a 429 twin-turbo V8, while the S600 should pack about 510 hp from its V12. The more powerful AMG should provide 550 hp for those wanting to act like they are 12 in the corners.
The car is said to debut at next year’s Frankfurt Auto Show, with customer deliveries taking place in October 2012.
