Here we have the latest and clearest photos of the next-generation Mercedes S-Class, the W222, which was caught near MB Research & Development Centre in Germany.
You can see both the short and long-wheelbase S-Class standing together at one of the pictures. The rear door of the long-wheelbase car is noticeably longer.
We also get to see the new LED daytime running lights and indicators much better, while the grille looks larger than on the outgoing model.
The engine line-up is expected to be quite similar to the current range with the addition of a plug-in hybrid in the future.
As with previous S-Class models, the new car will come with new safety and technology features, including radar based Distronic PLUS with Steering Assist, Steering Wizard, Brake Assist PLUS with crossover wizard, which uses camera and radar sensors, Adaptive Highbeam Assist PLUS, Traffic sign assistant, Night View Assist PLUS and new Parking Assistant, which will park your car automatically, taking over even the brakes.
We expect the new S-Class to debut next month either at the Geneva Motor Show or at the New York Auto Show.
