SPIED! NEXT-GEN 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ S-CLASS CAUGHT FOR THE FIRST TIME

It’s official—the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is on its way. Snowy spy photos of the next-generation S-Class have recently surfaced, giving us our first glimpse of the redesigned luxury sedan.

Up front, the mesh grille and headlights are well clad, but the front end appears to take on a new boxier look than its predecessor. That could just be cleverly placed camo disguising the true shape of the new S-Class’ nose, however. Around back, things look pretty much the same as the current model save for some dummy taillights. Expect those lamps to get new LED accents and a more modern design, possibly influenced by the new CLS and other recent Benz models.

Recently, all 2018 S-Class models received more than 6,500 new parts as part of the current generation’s mid-cycle refresh—so we imagine there are many tweaks under the camo here. Overall, it seems on schedule for its possible 2020 debut. We’ll have to wait and see what level of autonomous features are planned for this model as well. Stay tuned.
