2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is refreshed to be more luxurious and longer

Article by Christian A., on February 16, 2018

For those of you who have extremely high standards, the Mercedes-Benz S Class may not be opulent enough for you. And this is the reason why the automaker decided to make the high class sedan a notch more luxurious with its Maybach variant. This model will make an appearance at next month’s 2018 Geneva Motor Show, before it goes on sale in the United States in the late summer of 2018.

What makes this variant stand out from its siblings would be the new grille that uses vertical slats, instead of the regular horizontal ones. On the lower fascia, you will find a metallic trim that gives the vehicle a flashier look.

The most prominent change here, however, would be the car’s profile. The 2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class now measures 215 inches (5,461 millimeters) long, while riding on a 132.5 inch (3,365.5 mm) wheelbase. This is a whopping 10 inches (254mm) increase than even the long-wheelbase S-Class Sedan. Having said that, passengers should have a lot more leg room in the cabin.

Customers can get the Maybach S-Class in optional two-tone paint schemes, in a total of nine combinations. Two layers of coat will finish the car’s exterior to give it more shine. Before the last layer is applied, workers sand the paint by hand for an optimal appearance.

Aside from the colour schemes, customers also have a choice between two powertrains. One is the S560 4Matic that uses a turbocharged 4.0 liter V8 with 463 horsepower (345 kilowatts) and 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres) of torque. This lets the sedan hit 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 4.8 seconds.

On the other hand, there is the more potent S650 that comes equipped with a 6.0 liter V12 that carries out 621 horsepower (463 kilowatts) and 738 pound feet (1,001 Newton metres) of torque. Though this is the more powerful version, it only saves 0.2 seconds when doing the 60 miles per hour sprint, now achieved in only 4.6 seconds.

Moving on into the car’s interior. The Maybach offers exclusive colour combinations for its fancy sedan. You can choose from either a combination of Armagnac Brown and Black, or a more contrasting combination of Savanna Beige and Black. Moreover, there is a black Nappa leather option that can be had with copper, gold, or platinum stitching. Rear passengers sit in Executive seats that are paired with more ambient lighting, compared to that of a standard S-Class.

Now, with the more luxurious Mercedes Maybach S Class, be ready to shell out more cash to get one of these. However, the automaker has not given us any details on how much one of these would cost.

Mercedes-Maybach S-Class offers exclusive luxury with new features Even finer and even more exclusive: the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class in a new look

Fuel consumption combined: 12.7 - 8.8 l/100 km; Combined CO2 emissions: 289 - 197 g/km*
Stuttgart/Geneva. Mercedes-Maybach stands for the ultimate in exclusivity and individuality. The luxury brand combines the perfection of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with the exclusivity of Maybach. Now the top model from Mercedes-Benz is even more refined. A new radiator grille, optional two-tone paintwork and new exclusive colour combinations in the interior ensure an even more majestic look. The world premiere is at the Geneva Motor Show (6.3. to 18.3.2018). The sales start is in April 2018.

A reinterpretation of the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille with its fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end. The grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit. It celebrated its world premiere in the Vision Mercedes‑Maybach 6, the exclusive coupé study which thrilled connoisseurs and fans of the brand in 2016.

The two-tone exterior paint finish is also a classic Mercedes-Maybach theme. In future there will be nine different colour combinations available on request. The double clear coat is available as a further new option for all dark colours. It creates a brilliant surface finish with a piano lacquer effect and a special impression of depth. The second bodywork clear coat, including intermediate sanding, is intricately applied by hand in the Maybach Manufaktur by specially trained varnishers.

The exterior look of the top model is rounded off by a new luxury 20‑inch multi-spoke wheel. There are also three exclusive 20- inch wheels to choose from for the Mercedes-Maybach, including the wheel with a 20‑hole design familiar from the Mercedes-Maybach S‑C abriolet.

Two new exclusive colour combinations are offered in the interior: armagnac brown/black and savanna beige/black. The black Maybach Exclusive nappa leather upholstery appointments can also be ordered with a choice of copper-, gold- or platinum-coloured contrasting topstitching. Also new in the range are trim inserts in designo flowing lines Magnolia.

With a length of 5462 mm and a wheelbase of 3365 mm, the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz model range exceeds the long-wheelbase S‑Class Saloon by 20 cm in both dimensions. Rear passengers benefit from this increased size, as well as from standard equipment that includes Executive seats on both left and right and other exclusive details such as innovative voice amplification. The huge success of the Mercedes-Maybach speaks volumes: since the market launch of the Maybach in February 2015 over 25,000 Mercedes-Maybach S‑Class models have already been delivered to customers. In 2017, too, more than 1 in 10 S‑Class models sold was a Mercedes-Maybach. The main markets are China, Russia and the USA.
