The German car maker is currently working upon the all-new 2020 S Class which has been in the development phase now and expect to unveil in next year.
The spy shot images of 2020 Mercedes S Class have been spotted in testing in cold weather area somewhere in Europe.
Inside the cabin, we can see that the Mercedes S Class have a completely fresh dashboard which seems to be the largest infotainment touchscreen panel in a production car. The display panel is almost covering the entire space of the centre dashboard and likely to measure 13-inch screen. Touch-sensitive buttons such as hazard light switch, driving mode selector and etc are placed on the bottom of the infotainment panel. Also, the new S-class will be having a rectangular instrument panel display.
It is adequate to say that the Mercedes S-Class 2020 will be equipped with a host of connectivity, smart and entertainment features, as it has an elegant display panel.
The new- all Mercedes S Class is to be developed on an updated version of the MRA architecture along with exterior changes in design language. On the outside, the luxurious car has new LED headlights and tail lamps, fresh alloy wheels, and modified bumpers.
The 2020 Mercedes S Class is likely to come with level 3 autonomy technology which is one step ahead than the Tesla’s popular AutoPilot. The driver needs no alert all the time (but the periodic check-ins are required) while driving the car as level 3 autonomy technology is much efficient making ambiguous safety actions automatically on its own.
