Mercedes-Maybach S-Class oozes luxury and tech


Mercedes-Benz uncovers the new-generation Mercedes-Maybach S580, based on the new-generation S-Class. The all-new providing sits on high of the S-Class line-up as its most luxurious iteration with extra rear legroom, extra creature consolation and extra opulence as effectively.

This is the new Z223 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, and it is essentially a more opulent version of the seventh-generation S-Class that made its debut in September this year.

Overall length is up to 5,469mm now, with a wheelbase that stretches to 3,396mm, making the new Maybach S-Class the longest limousine to bear the nametag. The rear seats offer calf rests with a massage function, while the heating feature is extended to the neck and shoulders. It retains the minimalistic interior design of the new S-class, along with its second-gen MBUX infotainment system, 12.8-inch tablet-style OLED infotainment screen, a 12.3-inch 3D digital instrument display and up to three screens for rear-seat passengers. The aim is to ensure optimum NVH, and to that end, the Maybach S-Class gets plenty of insulation throughout its body, along with thicker laminated glass, and noise-reduced tyres with foam absorbers.

Mercedes-Benz says the newcomer is "particularly suitable for chauffeured driving", with an extra 180 mm between its axles compared with the longest version of the standard S-Class sedan.

There are five digital screens inside as standardRear passengers can travel around in pure luxury and classThe wheelbase has been stretched to add more rear seat spaceThe paint job is stellar to say the leastAsking price of the auto has not been revealed yet.

The Mercedes Maybach S-Class 2021 doesn't just offer an ultra expensive drive experience from within but looks the part of being a palace on wheels as well.

A Maybach badge is included on the C-pillar, while the special model scores its own variant-specific rear bumper and exhaust tailpipe design. Accordingly, the rear doors are wider and can be specified to open electronically, with separate door controls for a chauffeur to open or close the door without needing to exit the vehicle.

There's also the optional active ambient lighting system, which has two more LEDs than the regular S-Class at 253 LEDs, along with two more colour themes (rose gold white and amethyst glow). This includes Merc's patented "Pre-Safe Impulse" side function. A 9-speed automatic gearbox sends power to all four wheels via the 4-Matic all-wheel-drive system.

Maybach S-Class 2021 is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 with EQ Boost mild-hybrid technology. As with all Level 3 autonomous-certified vehicles, the Maybach S-class will require the driver to be alert at all times and ready to take to the controls again, should the situation demand it. The recently launched Maybach GLS paints an accurate picture of what to expect from the upcoming luxobarge, but with the S-Class riding on a new platform, it could have even more high-end features.

The new 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S580 in the market will compete against the Bentley Flying Spur V8.

Before we dive inside, let's focus on the exterior.

Where the S-Class is a relatively subtle way for diplomats and captains of industry to swish around, the Maybach is a rolling announcement of oligarchy.
