Everyone knows that Mercedes is preparing a new generation S-Class for the 2013 model year, but as of late, the model was only offered as a sedan. Now, Mercedes plans on changing that by offering a total of four models, including, for the first time, a four-seater cabriolet.

During an interview with British magazine, AutoExpress, Dr. Uwe Ernstberger – Mercedes Program Manager for the S-Class - said: "The S-Class is the best luxury car in the world, and we have many surprises in terms of technology for the new model. It will deliver something very different to its rivals – and it will have a much broader range."

The first model to arrive after the base version will be the previously rumored S600 Pullman which will serve as a replacement for the recently discontinued Maybach line-up. Next, there will be a two-door S-Class coupe replacing the current CL-Class and a four-seater cabriolet featuring a vast folding roof inspired by the Ocean Drive Concept from the 2006 Detroit Auto Show. An E300 BlueTEC Hybrid version will also be offered.

S-Class has proven that Mercedes can create a luxury car which is large enough to accommodate plenty of people.

I’ve never seen such a luxurious middle-sized vehicle before; even on the inside, you can see how it is abundant with comfortable features.

Who says luxury is only limited to regular-sized vehicles? Now, you can enjoy it with more passengers on the inside.

Luxury always comes off with the “petite” image to me as most luxurious cars are invariably normal sized. This, however, is large and wide. So here, luxury also comes with freshness.

The more they expand, the more they got great concept. The body paint of this model is very unusual for me as well as the unique wheels of it.

I like the design it’s so elegant and very classy on looks. The wheels are somehow unique and striking. The four-seater cabriolet feels so refreshing to sit on.

This Mercedes Model is grandest of all. When it comes to elegance, Mercedes is one of it. Nice exterior.

Mercedes now on its expansion of its S-Class. Anyway it was still considered as the best luxury car in the world and now the Mercedes team is on the work. Good job.

Good to be true, this expansion can end up on making it both in hybrid engine and not. That is a good offer for each one of us. Anyway, please do update us on its new article.

This convertible is oozing with angst and appeal. I love the simplicity of it and at the same time its elegant look. This is a good work for Mercedes for this will catch a lot of attentions.

When it comes to this model, the design is so elegant and very shiny on its looks. The wheels are unique and awesome. I like the four-seater cabriolet, it feels so relaxing to sit on.

Well, that expansion is going to be the talk of the town! Mercedes has the best luxury cars in the world now, what more could be their title if
ever this time will come? Haha. Im just hoping that Hybrid version would take a little less.
