We reported in detail when pics and details of the interiors of the upcoming 2014 Mercedes S Class surfaced on the web world. Now, what we have here is a Youtube video that shows a fleet of mildly camouflaged test mules of the upcoming new generation S Class. It is being said that this video has been shot outside a Mercedes manufacturing plant.

The next gen flagship sedan from the popular luxury car maker will make its public debut on May 15th. The new luxury sedan, which has been codenamed as the W222, is expected to up the ante in the luxury car market with its class leading technology, luxury and safety.

The car might make it to India in mid 2014 and will take on the likes on the likes of the BMW 7 Series and the Audi A8. Mercedes has big hopes with the upcoming S Class and the car might help Merc re-gain the lost territory from Audi and BMW.

As with the current S, the new car might come to us via CKD route and will be sold in India in the sedan body variant. Other body variants that the car will have for international markets include a coupe, a convertible and the Pullman limousine. The next gen S Class based Pullman will be the successor to the Maybach.

Powering the upcoming S Class will be re-tuned motors that will be higher on performance and fuel economy and lower on tail pipe emissions. The engines are expected to come mated to a new 9 speed automatic gearbox that benefits from terrain sensing technology.

The interiors of the upcoming S Class seem to be richer and have more space than the insides of the current car. Rear seat occupants, which would more often than not be the owners of the upcoming S, will enjoy huge equipment levels like electrically retractable thigh support, individual screens, et al.

The latest version of the S Class, which is being touted to redefine the benchmark of car travel, is slated to be unveiled on May 15th at Stuttgart. We have already brought you leaked images of the car’s front and interior besides official images of the cabin.
