Mercedes-Maybach S-Class unveiled as new luxury flagship



Let us know in the comments. There's no missing the larger-sized Maybach grille in chrome, nor the chrome accoutrements and Maybach insignia around the vehicle. The lower portion of the bumper gets wide air inlets with an option in black or chrome finish. If you're not a fan of the shiny, you can specify a black mesh as an option. The Maybach S-Class 2021 comes with more screens than ever before. For reference, it's even longer than the long-wheelbase S-Class by almost 200 mm. First-Class experience the moment you step inWith a longer wheelbase, precisely 180mm, the rear section of the cabin is slightly bigger and boasts new refined additions. The auto is festooned with badges carrying the "Maybach" insignia (including the pedals), but you'll notice those after you've taken in the gorgeous two-tone paint job (available in various shades) and all the chrome bits surrounding it. The latter is painstakingly applied by hand in a separate paint shop, requiring nearly a week before the vehicle is returned to the regular production process, according to the company. Upon first glance it's the increased length, the vertical slats on the grille, and the oligarch-friendly 20-inch chrome dish wheels which are now the chief visual trademarks of this ultra-luxurious sedan. For some idea of the vast customisation options available, just look at some examples in the gallery below.

We've attached all of the teaser clips released by Mercedes-Maybach in the build up to the reveal scheduled for later today. The main party piece on the Maybach S-Class is electrically operated comfort doors available on request. The MBUX also offers the optional Interior Assist feature. The lighting system is adaptive and there's even a return of the "seatbelt butler" which extends the belts to passengers so they need not expend unnecessary energy by reaching for them. 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.

Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off the all-new prestigious Mercedes-Maybach S-Class and it sure takes luxury and extravagance to a whole new level. The footrests for the passengers at the back now offers massage for calf muscles while the armrests and door panels are heated.

For making the ride even more relaxing and quiet, the Maybach comes with Active road noise compensation which uses six sensors in the suspension system filtering out the unwanted noises and producing counter-phase sound waves through the Burmester 4D surround sound system. The rear-axle steering and E-Active Body Control suspension are both optional with the limousine. If that's the case, then Mercedes has got you covered too. The second seat row can be fitted with individual lighting, and animated ambient lights are also on the list.

On the safety front, a fully-equipped Maybach S-Class will have 18 airbags in total, along with a bunch of other safety systems.
