Thought the Mercedes-Benz S-Class was flagship enough? Well, the carmaker is bringing in an even more opulent road-going luxury liner in the form of the Maybach S-Class. We've even spotted it in the country ahead of its launch on March 3. Here’s a low down on what to expect from Mercedes’ flagship sedan:


 Opulence Personified


Since we're on this, we'll start with the rear seats as that's where you're likely to spend the majority of your in-car time. And it's an experience that can rival first-class airline suites. There's already more room on offer for the rear-seat occupants, thanks to the Maybach's wheelbase being 180mm longer than the standard S-Class. The highlight is undoubtedly the twin 'Executive Seats' -- that can recline up to 43.5 degrees -- draped in fine leather, and the headrest gets a soft pillow. 

You can also pair it with an optional fridge and a set of silver-plated goblets that fit in the rear centre console. The champagne goblets are stored in an insert within the storage compartment. Other features for the rear-seat occupants include massage function, separate climate control zones, a pair of 11.6-inch displays that can be controlled via an MBUX tablet, and dedicated sunblinds.


Blinded By The Bling


Looking at the model spotted, in true Maybach fashion, the Maybach S-Class will get a lot of bling compared to the standard S-Class. These include vertical slats on the chrome grille, a chrome-heavy air dam, a two-tone paint option and unique wheels that are anything but ordinary.  


Premium Materials


The dashboard layout is largely similar to the standard S-Class, but it is finished in specific wood inserts with Maybach-theme graphics for its MBUX infotainment setup. Notable features include a 4D Burmester sound system, augmented reality head-up display, adaptive rear ambient lighting, and active noise suppression for a quieter cabin.


Under The Hood 

We're expecting two powertrain choices for the Maybach S-Class: 503PS V8 petrol paired with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system and a V12 petrol engine making 612PS. There's AWD and air suspension as standard, along with rear-wheel steering, ensuring this luxury liner stays nimble-footed within city limits


Prices And Rivals


Expect the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class to be priced at a hefty premium over the locally-assembled S-Class that retails from Rs 1.58 crore and Rs 1.65 crore (ex-showroom). It will take on the super-luxury sedans such as the Rolls Royce Ghost and Bentley Flying Spur.
