W223 rendering.....Is THIS the new S Class?

This artist rendering is the latest look at the new “EQS” S Class, which I guess is their new electric version. What do you think about it?

Here is a link to the whole article, which delves deeply into upcoming MB models: https://www.automobilemag.com/news/mercedes-benz-deep-dive-future-vehicles-2019-2022/?wc_mid=4035:16023&wc_rid=4035:209543&_wcsid=6077D 5E61397666287D50AAB9F2A35C50338BF14A229F99E

It may look cool as some other car........But that is NO----- S class! That is bland and an overgrown VW Arteon. The S class is supposed to be a flagship, and when you pull up----you've arrived!! LOL

No of course it isn't. The new S-Class has been seen in spy pics already it and it looks nothing like that. Now the separate EQS model we don't know about yet. It could look funky like that.

That looks like the "all electric" version.

The S-Class is a completely separate platform and will looking nothing like it. The design will be evolutionary. Even the EQS will not look anything like it. These are all renders that have been around from the early EQC intro.
It will not look like the SClass but will not look like a Tonka Toy either.

These are forged rims and will cost 2-3 times of a cast rim. I have seen some decent deals but they are far and in-between...

Thanks! If that design requires forged for engineering than it will not go aftermarket. I will keep looking for that deal. South Florida is crazy with upgrading rims and mods. Many S63's with aftermarket rims here, so the stock rims must be for sale somewhere. May leave my name at some of these wheel shops.

Those are great forged rims. I had them on my 2015 S63.

I like it too, but will probably much prefer the non-AMG Line version.

It looks nicer than the very first rendering however I don't like the grill design atop the edges reminds me of Ford Edges yes pun intended

Question was if the picture was an accurate image of the new S-Class.
Your post gave the correct answer and essentially closed the thread.

Forged rims are the way to go. I didn't realize what a difference they made.

Oh Forged are the bomb! Twice as strong. I don't really hit bumps or potholes here but my Zo7 has very low profile tires and forged was the only way to go. Its a whole different animal, expensive, but worth it if you can.
