Spied – Is this the actual interior of the 2014 Mercedes S Class?
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
The soon to be launched Mercedes S Class has been (and continues to be) the talk of the town. We’ve brought you numerous images of camouflaged S Class’ from the streets of Europe.
In fact, not too long ago, we got you a set of pictures that exposed the cabin of the new flagship offering from Mercedes Benz.
However, we could only see the seats of the car in that image. Now though, there are a new set of spy shots which actually reveal the dashboard of the car.
Before we go deeper, we should tell you that what you’re seeing here could as well be ‘dummy’ pieces of plastic and wood the engineers installed and this interior may not be the real deal.
The first surprise comes in the form of a 2-spoke steering wheel. The steering wheel has deep accents of wood in it and the central horn is surrounded by various buttons presumably controlling the central screen, navigation, etc.
Another surprise comes in the form of a standard key slot just beneath the steering wheel. In the current scenario where small hatches and sedans are offered with keyless entry and go, we doubt Mercedes would want its most prestigious customers to slot ‘a key’ (key fob) in a rather conventional way.
The central cluster is finished in wood and does not have an overload of buttons (we’re used to seeing that a lot nowadays). However, we understand that Mercedes may want to continue the tradition of the S Class’ elegant and timeless interior and being minimalistic is key here.
The all new Mercedes S Class is expected to debut either at the Geneva Motor Show (March) or at the Frankfurt Motor Show (September) this year. Mercedes say that it will offer a state-of-the-art driverless system among many other never before seen features. As said before, the S Class will be a range of cars (coupe, cabriolet, long wheelbase variants) rather than just one or two cars.
