Mercedes S-class review
Looking at the new Mercedes S-Class from the hip, notes that the ridges on the wings around the point of losing extensions that had the previous version. Car because at first glance it does not look too forward, but no less impressive or inspiring.
With the new Mercedes S-class doors are completely different profiled thanks to two lateral lines Mecedes introduced into the design of the latest generation of its cars.

Grille is noticeably larger and more prominent, while the headlights are designed to be a much better fit in the composition of the bumper, grille and openings for air.
It is similar to the last part of the car. Lines composition tailgate with rear wings are smooth and almost inconspicuous. Stop lights are rounded and nicely blended into the final contour.
The two models are very different in the interior, although the basic concept of the position of instruments and controls is similar, such as the central screen multimedia system, or row of buttons below the central vents.
However, from the steering wheel, to complete digitization of the dashboard and form holes for ventilation, and to form the center console again, everything is new and different in the new S-class.
Abundant use of materials from wood has not missed a new generation, but it seems that the wood better incorporated into the whole ambience of the interior than was the case previously.
