You’ve seen official pics of the exterior and interior, as well as several spyshots – now the W222 Mercedes-Benz S-Class gets teased in this video ahead of its debut on Wednesday in Hamburg, Germany.

According to various reports, known variants so far include an S 350 BlueTEC (258 hp/620 Nm 3.0 litre diesel V6, 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds), an S 500 (455 hp/700 Nm 4.7 litre petrol V8, 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds) and an S 400 Hybrid (306 hp/370 Nm 3.5 litre hybrid V6, 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds).

The W222 is said to be the most luxurious S-Class to date, to fill the void left by Maybach. The interior features LED ambient lighting, a Burmester sound system, 10-way adjustable seats, tray tables and soft-close doors, amongst many others. There’s even a perfuming system, with four scents to choose from! Being an S-Class, it’s not short on tech – more details on the arsenal of gadgets and safety systems here.

The exterior clearly borrows design cues from the CLS, with the twin body creases lending a touch of athleticism as well as aggression. As the facelifted E-Class has done, the new S-Class drops the prominent wheelarch haunches for a cleaner side profile. More details on Wednesday, which isn’t at all far away!
