2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Spied

With sales dropping faster than stocks on Wall Street, we imagine Mercedes-Benz can’t get its updated — and most profitable — S-Class to market fast enough. But our latest spy shots show Mercedes’ flagship sedan is closing in on production ready, marking the S-Class’ first update since it hit the market in 2005.

2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Spied-12010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Spied-2Although the launch of the updated S-Class is still several months away, a few of its final styling cues can be seen on this prototype. Clearly visible are the new front skirt and fog lights, the differently sculpted bumper, the new mirrors with the more elegant side flashers. Also new will be the modified layout of the headlights: while the flashers will move to the bottom of the units, LED daylight driving lamps will be fitted to the outer edges of the front lamp units. A slightly re-designed rear bumper and new taillights loosing the metal stripes will round the facelift.

When we saw this S Class with new front and rear fascias, we immediately thought of the Ocean Drive Concept. From the slightly V-shaped grille, to the LEDs surrounding the headlamps, to the clean and smooth rear bumper – designers are following the direction of the stunning Ocean Drive.

No changes are expected to be made to the car’s powertrain, although a hybrid version of the S-Class will be offered for the first time in the form of the S400 BlueHYBRID.

Look for the updated S-Class to hit U.S. showrooms in spring of 2009, just in time for the 2010 model year.
