A Closer Look At The Refreshed Mercedes-Maybach S-Class
Luxury car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz may be a household name, but its ultra-luxury sub-brand Mercedes-Maybach aspires to be a name among palaces, with its exclusive S-Class sedan.
‘Inspired by a pinstripe suit' were the words used by the brand to describe the most prominent new feature—the vertical grille made up of fine louvres. This design feature was first premiered by the company with its Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 in 2016.
Continuing with the Mercedes-Maybach theme, the S-Class will come with a two-tone exterior paint finish and there will be 9 different color combinations available. However, the double clear coat will be the other new option for dark colors to “create a brilliant surface finish with a piano lacquer effect and a special impression of depth.”
This big four-door sedan will roll around on new 20‑inch multi-spoke wheels; in fact there are three exclusive options to choose from, one of which is similar to the 20-hole design as seen on the Mercedes-Maybach S‑Cabriolet.
As for customizing the inside, buyers will be given two new options, armagnac brown/black and savanna beige/black, with options of different metallic colored stitching for the leather upholstery.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is sold with the choice between two petrol engines. The S560 has a turbocharged V8 with 469 hp, which is also available in 4matic four wheel drive. The S650 has a turbocharged V12 with 630hp.
Car enthusiasts will first get to see the latest Mercedes-Maybach S-Class with their own eyes at the Geneva Motor Show (March 6 to 13), and sales will begin in April 2018.
