Mercedes-Maybach Makes Global Debut; India Launch Next Year

The New Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Is Here To Redefine Chauffeured-Driven Luxury

It's 18cm longer than the standard long-wheelbase S-Class, and all of that extra length goes to improve the spaciousness in the rear seats - as this model is a auto that will be more used as a chauffeur vehicle than a driver's auto. The S-Class has always carried class-leading technology in its holster, often considered to be one of the greatest cars in the world.

At a time when several luxury auto makers are committing to make their offerings less palatial, the Mercedes Maybach S-Class 2021 showcases that there may be no real upper limit when it comes to automotive opulence.

Further down the line, the twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 will eventually power the Maybach S-Class as Mercedes has previously said this model will be the only auto to keep the powerhouse. The footrests for the passengers at the back now offers massage for calf muscles while the armrests and door panels are heated. This, along with the E-Active body control are optional extras.

High-quality wood trim is used on the dashboard and front seat backrests, while the seats, doors and steering wheel are upholstered in exclusive Maybach Nappa leather with a designo crystal white finish. The absolute pinnacle of luxury from the German auto maker, the Maybach S-Class 2021 raises the bar when it comes to sheer opulence and now promises an even more pampered drive and ride option to the rich and famous. At 5,469mm, it's a substantial 180mm longer than the long-wheelbase version of the new S-class, and all of those 180mm have gone into the new Maybach's wheelbase, which is 3,396mm long - 31mm longer than even the outgoing Maybach S-class.

There's also an active ambient lighting system, which employs 253 LEDs, a head-up display with augmented reality, along with an optional Interior Assist function, which uses cameras to track movements of the car's occupants and proactively trigger certain functions.

A Maybach badge is included on the C-pillar, while the special model scores its own variant-specific rear bumper and exhaust tailpipe design. A 9-speed automatic gearbox sends power to all four wheels via the 4-Matic all-wheel-drive system.

The New Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Is Here To Redefine Chauffeured-Driven Luxury

There are two engine options that are on offer, an S580 4Matic that utilizes a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine with 370 kW and 700 Nm of torque. It also helps give the new Maybach S-class a tighter turning circle (11.2m). If that's the case, then Mercedes has got you covered too.

Also available is the Pre-Safe Impulse side function (part of the E-Active Body Control suspension), which lifts the vehicle up by 80mm when it detects an impending side-on crash. 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.

Being based on an S-Class, the 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S580 also has the latest generation MBUX infotainment with five infotainment screens as standard. The Maybach S-Class 2021 comes with more screens than ever before.

Reports suggest that the Maybach S580 could be launched in India sometime next year.
