At the time, we didn’t have a lot of information regarding what the new-gen model would look like. However, after staring at the spy images long enough, we realized that it featured Mercedes‘ Sensual Purity design language, boasting an entirely new front fascia, a cleaner profile and a restyled rear end with horizontal teardrop taillights.
Now, thanks to Kolesa and designer Nikita Chuiko, we can finally picture what the W223 actually looks like underneath its extensive camouflage, and judging by the details alone, these renderings appear to be surprisingly accurate.
New era of four-door luxury
While body cladding remains an issue, the 2020 S-Class really does seem to have a trapezoidal grille design, elongated headlights, and an overall lower and more vertical front fascia aesthetic. It’s hard to say if the grille will actually be bigger than the one used on the current car, but it does look wider, at least.
Now, the rear end design could be an even bigger story here, because these renders actually helped us notice that the W223’s taillights might actually be interconnected by some type of insert, whether it’s chrome or a more practical light strip.
The illustration features a chrome solution, which is plausible given its thickness on actual prototypes. By the way, this is more than just an inkling, as pretty much every single 2020 S-Class prototype appears to have a horizontal break in its boot lid camouflage, right above the license plate.
