2013 Mercedes S-Class Caught With Less Disguise Testing in Spain

Next-generation Mercedes S-Class has been caught again, revealing new details. Caught testing in Spain, the new S-Class has less camouflage showing us more of its new shape as well as a new line starting from the headlights, going back to the rear door.

New S-Class features an evolutionary design with a sculpted bonnet, a larger front grille, LED headlights and CL-Class inspired taillights.

Interior reveals us a new instrument panel with two large LCD screens, one of the screens replaces the regular analog instruments while the other one is a touchscreen display for controlling entertainment, navigation, climate and communication.

Engine options will include a wide range of diesel and petrol units. A plug-in hybrid with a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine and a 60bhp electric motor is also rumoured.

Technical highlights include radar based Distronic PLUS with Steering Assist, which helps the driver to maintain the desired distance in stop and go traffic. Steering Wizard uses cameras to detects lane markings and vehicles ahead and makes the car drive at slower speeds.

There is also Brake Assist PLUS with crossover wizard, which uses camera and radar sensors, helping to prevent rear-end collisions, new Adaptive Highbeam Assist PLUS, Traffic sign assistant, Night View Assist PLUS and new Parking Assistant will park your car automatically, taking over even the brakes.

World debut of the next-generation S-Class is most likely already in January at the Detroit Auto Show.
