For the first time ever, the all-new 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been caught on camera undergoing winter testing.
A G11 BMW 7 Series was seen behind the heavily-camouflaged mule, a clear indication that Mercedes-Benz is testing its next-generation flagship model.
Although the test mule features an abundance of body cladding and camouflage, it is very likely that the all-new S-Class will feature Mercedes’ latest design language that was introduced on the new CLS and A-Class. The headlights of the new model also appear to be placed lower than the current W222 generation S-Class.
As for the rear end, this particular mule features muffler openings that are neatly integrated into the bottom of the bumper, unlike the current S-Class’ half exposed muffler.
Not much is known about the new generation S-Class’ powertrain, though the company did introduce a new line of straight-six engines last year both in petrol and diesel variants. These engines could potentially find their way into the all-new S-Class, on top of the plug-in hybrid variants at a later date.
