    I like some of the details but to me...i don't know..somehow that big middle screen doesn't look like something that belongs in luxury class...especially not in top luxury limusine. Maybe they went too far with minimalistic theme inside.

    But maybe in real it looks much better.

    called it on the augmented reality HUD a few months ago... I don't like the full touchscreen controls tho, I'd still like some sort of knob interface for quick adjustment of climate controls and so on. Overall very high quality looking though.

    Don't like its interior design, but materials and details are very nice.

    Very poor integration of the screens, and all those black glossy surfaces, are we not supposed to give them flak for that?

    Doesn't look like much when compared to the new Escalade screens. Kind of nice to say Cadillac is leading the pack for a change.

    Yup, Cadillac is on the lead here it would seem. Does Mercedes have level 2 autonomous self drive technology that is competitive to Ze Americans?

    It seems to some folks bigger and more screens= more luxurie.
    Unfortunately i think Mercedes designers (among the others) also went with that idea.
    Well if people don't want to wait here is this


    Byton M-Byte. They say it will have more technology that Tesla...so it must be pure luxury

    ...he ask as he try to forget vehicles, engines etc Cadillac doesn't have
    Does Cadillac even has E class competitor at the moment? No
    Does Cadillac has S class competitor? No
    Does Cadillac (or any other american brand) have v12 engine, or had in past 20 years. Or as smooth engine as inline 6 from BMW and Mercedes? No and No.
    Does Cadillac has sedan with smooth v8 TT at the moment? No

    USA brands doesn't even have competitor to Genesis G80.

    Rolls Royce also doesn't have autonomous drive..but it still sits above the other vehicles as epitome of luxury. Craftsmanship, materials, etc are above other vehicles. But Audi A8 has Level 3 (or level 2+...there was some talk of possibility not turned on due to regulations or something like that) so it must be best and more luxurious vehicle on the world.

    Rumors/info are Mercedes S will offer Eyes-off (level 3) but to me they can offer level 5 if they want (again if there are also problems with regulations don't see how will they go even with level 3), interior (center console) still doesn't look to belong in vehicle which should be at the top of luxury sedan class.

    You don't have to try to insert Cadillac in Mercedes S class thread since Cadillac doesn't even have vehicle to go against E class. Yes you like Cadillac. O.K but not every Mercedes thread has to turn in Cadillac thread.

    If only regulations let manufacturers do it, they would replace whole windshields with a screen. Who needs a piece of glass if You can replace it with a screen and a camera on the outside?

    Mbuk and I were talking about screens and he threw in the self driving tech, two places where Cadillac does lead. We weren't saying they have taken the overall leadership from the Germans.

    The current S Class interior is fantastic, and I like the way the screens are integrated. This has me worried for the next Gen.....

    From a design standpoint yeah...I agree, but looking at the demo, the materials and tech are going to be top notch.

    E class is the new crown vic. I would rather the CT5 Vsport if you ask me.

    And the S class is old school airport taxi, competing with the likes of Genesis err Hyundai...

    Not cool
