Two heavily disguised W223 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2020 prototypes were captured by photo spies during winter trials near the Arctic Circle. The car still remains in dense camouflage, but some details are quite interesting.

Almost all manufacturers are testing pre-production variants in particularly difficult winter conditions. There is no exception and Mercedes-Benz, conducting tests of the S-Class 2020 near the Arctic Circle. This allows the company in the short term to identify weak elements of the new car, and as quickly as possible to conduct resource tests, close to reality.

Not least, the company does not lag behind its traditions, and despite the fact that crossovers and SUVs are more attractive in the modern market – the Germans also develop sedans with hatchbacks. The flagship update is scheduled for 2020. Unfortunately, the manufacturer still does not remove the camouflage from the sedan. Experts suggest that the future S-Class will receive retractable handles.

 While the prototypes are equipped with temporary front optics, as well as sensors for unmanned systems instead of a three-pointed star on the radiator grille. We haven’t seen the salon yet, but it can be assumed that a new generation of MBUX multimedia will be installed there, significantly different from the one shown in CES for the second generation CLA.

Date of presentation and the cost is still unknown. The engine range is also kept secret, but advanced hybrid systems will appear.

Meanwhile, Daimler decided to expand the engine line on the GLE crossover. Now versions 350d and 400d will be available for purchase, equipped with a 2.9-liter six-cylinder diesel engine. Feature of the motor will be high torque and two turbines.
