2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

While we haven't seen the upcoming 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class yet, we now have a better idea of what its interior will look like. It doesn't disappoint.

The S-Class is Mercedes's most executive model. It's the stately sedan that's better to be driven around in than to drive yourself. We already know that the seventh generation, which will be unveiled later this year, will have as many as five screens inside: two in the front and up to three in the back. 

The new interior will have "elegant airiness" and "lounge characteristics," according to a Wednesday press release. Mercedes envisions it as a "third place," or, the "refuge between home and workplace." But seeing as we're all currently stuck in a global pandemic, the car might get bumped up to a "second place."

Mercedes says it drew a lot of inspiration from yacht design elements. There will be lots of open-pore wood veneers and real aluminum inlays.
