2013 Mercedes S-Class (W222) Winter Testing In Sweden [VIDEO]

Two weeks ago we showed you latest spy photos of the next-generation S-Class prototype testing in Sweden. Photos are good, but the moving picture is always better. The video below shows the next-generation S-Class from different angles testing on the snowy roads of Northern Sweden.

The design is inspired by the F700 concept, featuring smaller front lights with LED indicators than the current model and a more upright front grille.

While nothing is official, the new S-Class will feature a wide range of engines, including petrol, diesel and different hybrid variants. Notably the most interesting one will be a powertrain from the Vision S500 Plug-In Hybrid Concept, that will take this big saloon from 0-62mph in around 5.5 seconds, while offering an impressive 70mpg.

We expect to see more prototypes in the coming months, with little less disguise. The launch of the new S-Class is most likely in the second half of 2012 or in early 2013.
