Honestly I don't know what to say so I will post just the leaked photos

For a lot of people around the world
The S Class was always a benchmark, not sure what happened with this next generation

The same LS mistake of making it more GS than LS, same can be found here as more E than S!

That interior design is just sad. Having lots of screens is okay, but at least try to integrate them into one continuous unit (like Honda e). This is just the worst offender of glued-on tablets.

I have my problems with the current S-Class interior (one of the reasons I don't drive one), but it's a masterpiece compared to this. It's a straight-up Tesla ripoff. And that steering wheel looks like what I'd expect to find on a GLA or something, not a flagship.

If this is representative of the shipping car, I can see LS sales improving markedly.

Looks like the direction the Germans are going is with the new screens or tablets up in front of the driver. The Lexus LS500 is far nicer compared to this new S class, but seeing things in person might make a difference... The all black interior, YUCK! Looks like Mercedes copied Toyota with the Avalon with the center console as well 🗣 I notice the new black door pivot/attachments appear new. The re ar looks like a miss to me...too much like the new entry level model...front looks Ok, but whatever happened to fog lamps 🤬

Really disappointing to me - the interior and exterior are both bland and actually look a generation behind the current one. LS, especially with an upcoming refresh, is looking pretty good right now.

I'm also reading the "core" engine will be the "53" I6, not a V8. Looks like Lexus might have been ahead of the game on that one...

Mercedes also halted development of future ICEs. So the new I6 and I4 will be the last one. The V8 will die soon due to emissions and fuel economy regulations.

Lexus might be ahead of time with the V8 to V6 downsizing thing but...the Germans will replace V8 with fully electric powertrain that are smoother and faster. Meanwhile LS-FC is cancelled and there's no LS BEV planned from the beginning.
