2016 Mercedes Benz S Class

There is no need for some special introduction of S Class. It is a luxury sedan, which is under production from 1954, although it was officially introduced with this name with 1972 W-116 model. So far, we have seen six generation of this full-size luxury car. Current W-222 model was introduced last year as 2014 year model, so we usually wouldn’t expect some big modifications for next year model. However, German manufacture always surprises us with novelties and technical achievements, so that will be the case with 2016 Mercedes too. For now, we have seen sedan and coupe variant, but new model will come as convertible too.
