Spy Images of the Latest Models from Mercedes Benz, BMW and Skoda Spotted Testing
|   Thursday, May 02, 2013
The first images of the upcoming Mercedes Benz S Class are out and the vehicle is expected to be officially unveiled in May 2013. This vehicle shares the basic underpinnings with the larger C Class vehicles and some of the features are similar such as the rear door panels and the wing mounted mirrors. These aspects break the visual aesthetics of the large vehicle and give it a proportionate look.

The LED integrated lamps are also new along with the chromed out wide grille.
The new vehicles from Mercedes Benz will feature long and standard wheel base size to fill in the gap between Maybach's ranges of vehicles. Mercedes Benz also hopes to design a cabriolet version of the S Class vehicle apart from a C Class Coupe. Mercedes Benz further revealed the interior of the new S Class and it has been done up in a luxurious manner which aims at enhancing the visual appeal as well as the comfort level of the vehicle.

Spy pictures of the latest BMW 2 Series Convertible and Coupe have also been revealed prior to the official unveil of the vehicle in 2014. The vehicles are now being tested at the Nurburgring track and spy pictures of the vehicle testing have been leaked.

The new 2 Series is in line with the recently announced 4 Series vehicles which plan on replacing the 3 Series Convertible and Coupe. The new models also borrow styling cues from the 1 Series and the large interior space should also benefit the customers. The rear over hang is larger than that of its predecessor while the rear tracks have been made wider than before.

Underneath the 2 Series lie similar engine options as that of the 1 and 4 Series. However, the drive train has been enhanced and hence more power is developed. BMW plans on designing and developing more powerful vehicles since the M 135i gained mass popularity in the market. This vehicle changed BMW's attitude towards the performance coupe, convertible and sedan segment and hence has benefitted a huge number of sports enthusiasts.

The first images of the Skoda Octavia vRS have also been leaked and the vehicle is seen testing. These spy images showcase the exterior changes that distinguish the top end model of the Octavia from its predecessor. The technical specifications are however unavailable as Skoda has been yet to officially confirm the reports. However, there is a prominent spoiler at the rear section of the vehicle and this is a new addition to the Octavia.

The new exterior makes the vehicle look quite complicated yet appeals to the visual aesthetic level. The Octavia vRS is powered by a 2.0 liter Volkswagen developed engine which powers the Golf GTI. The engine displaces 217 BHP which is sufficient considering the size and ability of the Octavia vRS. The engine is mated to a dual clutch DSG six speed manual transmission system with optional automatic ability. Skoda hopes to achieve high sales target with the Octavia vRS although the general reaction of the public needs to be seen.
