2014 Mercedes S-Class Spied During Winter Testing

2014 Mercedes S-Class Spied During Winter Testing

This camouflaged prototype of the Mercedes-Benz flagship sedan was spied during its cold winter testing. 

Instead of revealing the new S-Class at last year’s Paris Motor Show, Mercedes teased sculptures showing off new, smooth flowing lines. These spy-photos indicate that, thanks to camouflage along the sides of the car, that the new design is certainly on its way, but still well under wraps.

The spy photos don’t show much more of the new car. It’s likely that the same headlight design that is on the 2014 E-Class, and other new Mercedes vehicles will be on this model, and we can see the new standard LED headlights through the front-end camouflage.

Expect for the most radical changes to be on the inside, and with the tech. There will be plenty of new safety tech such as DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist, which automatically helps the vehicle stay in its lane and even follow other vehicles in front in slow moving traffic.

With the Maybach line of vehicles no longer in production, the upcoming Mercedes-Benz S-Class will have up to 9 different variants, including a Pullman limo with rumors of both two-door and four-door coupes.

    LOL…This competes with the new Lexus LS? Good luck, Mercedes. It looks like the old S class, but with the goofy SL look grafted on. Oh wait, people will still buy it even if it breaks down daily and looks like crap because it’s German.

    Yes, I get that you’re a Lexus fan… The looks: beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I like yellow you like green… The Rolls Royce Ghost isn’t exactly the most beautiful car but people pay millions for it… Mercedes has a 6year maintenance plan… Lexus, 4year… The ’76 SL(C) certainly was not beautiful but I know of people still driving it and loving it. I also see many late 70’s S Class models in traffic… An acquaintance drives a 1982 280SE and still loves it! Wait until the new model is finally completely revealed without camouflage. Then again, you’re a Lexus fan so you’ll always like it best… There are more S Class on the road than Lexus. I wonder why? Not everybody can be so stupid? Lol

    What a weird comment. You begin by dismissing my statement about the car’s looks (though it was subjective as I was mainly talking about dimensions), and you follow that up with a little rant about how beautiful 1970s S classes are. I find it ironic how you dismissed a supposedly subjective claim with an argument that is more like a list of subjective claims. Funny, since you were being so subjective anyways, why didn’t you mention modern S classes? Is it because even Mercedes cock riders think they look shitty too? Anyways, Lexus is the most reliable car on the planet (Porche is 2, Toyota is 3), Mercedes isn’t even top 20. They better provide more comprehensive warranties than Lexus. Oh wait, they don’t, they just offer a longer washer fluid change plan ahaha. As for seeing more S classes on the road, this depends on your area of the world. In Canada, the LS outsells the S class, and in most of the US it does as well (though their sales are almost exactly even there). I bet you haven’t even seen the new LS. Funny thing is that it’s only a face lift and it looks like a much more radical change than Mercedes “Redesign.” oh well, i don’t blame Mercedes. From the crap I hear from German car fans, those companies can put crap on a plate, and you’d still by it
