We don’t even know exactly how big it is, however, since the digital instrument panel is much wider than on the present S-Class, the center display is as wide and significantly longer. From this distance, it appears even larger than the iPad Pro 12.9, the planet ’s biggest tablet .
Look carefully and you’ll find a few buttons. They command the manners, hazard lights, quantity, on/off. Most functions will be available through the center touchscreen. Aside from the digital device panel and the infotainment display, the remainder of the cottage remains coated.
As always, the new S-Class will probably be a technological trend-setter

The 2020 S-Class will arrive next year together with Level 3 semi-autonomous forcing technology, which will be a step above Level two systems like Tesla’s Autopilot and Cadillac’s Super Cruise.
