2019 S550 Mercedes Benz Exterior and Interior Redesign – Mercedes-Benz’s nascent next-generation S-class sedan, captured here wearing a minimum of camouflage and what could be the production bodywork. The current S-class was introduced for 2014, so it’s due for a total redesign—particularly given that most of the other models in Mercedes’s lineup are younger.
Mercedes-Benz recently announced the new features and changes across their lineup of luxury vehicles, and it’s no surprise that there are a lot of impressive updates throughout the list! Keep reading to take a closer look at the updates the to 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup!
The new S-class should be both slightly larger and at the same time weigh less than before. From these photos, it’s clear that the sedan’s basic shape won’t change much, although we anticipate a move away from today’s fairly soft shape to a sterner, more furrowed-brow look previewed somewhat by the new CLS-class and A-class. In other news, the sedan will be the only S-class variant going forward; the graceful two-door coupe and cabriolet models offered today won’t be redesigned and eventually will be dropped from the lineup, as Mercedes looks to prune its coupe and convertible offerings.
2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Changes
The biggest change in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup is found with the addition of the S 560e Sedan. The Mercedes-Benz S 560e Sedan is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that is equipped with a 7.2-kW charger for high-speed charging! The S 560e Sedan is powered by a 362-hp, V6 spark-ignition engine that is paired with a 90-kW electric motor. The 13.5 kWh lithium-ion battery offers drivers an estimated all-electric range of 25 miles.
While the 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet model do not feature any new equipment or upgrades for the model year, AMG® Sedan, Coupe and Cabriolet models of the S-Class lineup include two new steering wheel options: an AMG® Carbon Fiber/DINAMICA Performance steering wheel and an AMG® Wood/Leather steering wheel.
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Price
We’re a few years away from seeing the all-new S-class on the road, but the model’s debut should come sometime in 2019. When the S-class goes on sale for 2020, be prepared to pay at least $90,000 to step into one.
