Back in September 2020, Mercedes-Benz revealed the seven-generation of the S-Class, codenamed W223.

The S500 is expected to be powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with integrated 48V mild-hybrid motor to generate 430bhp and 530Nm of torque. On the other hand, the S580 trim with a twin-turbo V8 engine to generate 470bhp and 700Nm of torque. Both the engines will come mated to the latest nine-speed automatic transmission.
Visually, the vehicle features redesigned headlamps, sleek wedge-shaped tail lamps and a familiar long profile with strong road presence. The vehicle will ride on 21-inch wheels that further accentuates the imposing stance. As for the interior, the flagship sedan will offer five screens along with the latest MBUX. Some of the other standard feature highlights will include quilted leather upholstery, ambient lighting, wooden veneers, brushed metal inserts and fibre optic lighting around the cabin.
