2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class India Launch Timeline Revealed

It packs in a whole lot of tech, making it a drool-worthy upgrade for existing S-Class owners


  • New Mercedes-Benz S-Class to launch by mid-2021.
  • The 2021 Maybach S-Class will follow suit and will come by the end of next year.
  • The S-Class is likely to be offered with petrol, diesel and hybrid powertrains.
  • Notable features include rear entertainment screens, Burmester sound system, and augmented reality heads-up display.
  • Prices likely to start from Rs 1.5 crore (ex-showroom).

The existing Mercedes-Benz S-Class still remains the top pick for those who want a full size luxury sedan. It doesn’t feel dated in front of its newer rivals: the Audi A8L and BMW 7 Series. But Mercedes-Benz is set to take the game a step further and will introduce the recently revealed next-gen S-Class in the second half of 2021. More good news is the news that the Maybach S-Class will follow suit by the end of next year. 


The next-gen Mercedes-Benz S-Class is likely to be offered in its long wheelbase form, like the current model. The carmaker is yet to confirm the exact engines powering the India-spec model, but we expect it to come with petrol, diesel and hybrid powertrains. Currently, the outgoing S-Class is offered with 367PS 3.0-litre petrol and 286PS 3.0-litre diesel engines. Both engines are mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. 


The S-Class’ design is evolutionary rather than revolutionary. But that might be a good thing as it looks luxurious and is high on style. People using the S-Class to make a statement on the red carpet won’t be disappointed. But where Mercedes has taken the game forward is the interior ambience. 


It’s dominated by five screens, all running on Mercedes’ MBUX software. Rear seat occupants are given top priority thanks to the aircraft style twin seat arrangement. They are further pampered with individual zones of climate control, entertainment screens, rear sun blinds, massaging seats, and a massive panoramic sunroof. 


The existing S-Class is priced from Rs 1.38 crore (ex-showroom). Considering the enormous list of upgrades, the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class won’t come cheap and is likely to be priced from Rs 1.5 crore (ex-showroom). The Maybach version could well cost over the Rs 2 crore mark, but the luxury and style statement these cars pack will ensure your money has been well spent.
