The 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-class has been revealed a little over two months after the debut of the new-generation S-class. A 180mm increase in wheelbase, more interior space and a flurry of new comfort features promise to make the 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-class the most luxurious one yet.
The 2021 Maybach S-Class is discarding the V12 engine and it now comes with just one 4.0-litre twin-turbo with EQ-Boost mild-hybrid technology. The engine produces 502 PS of power and 699 Nm of torque while the electric motor offers an additional 21 PS of power and 249 Nm of torque. The rear-axle steering makes the limousine quite maneuverable in urban traffic.
Specific to the Maybach version are wood finishes for the front seatbacks, with a matching finish applied to the rear-centre console as well. As standard, the new Maybach S-class gets individual ‘Executive’ rear seats and a Chauffeur package as standard. The backrest of the Executive seats can be reclined by as much as 43.5 degrees, and the backrest of the front passenger seat can be tilted forward by as much as 23 degrees to free up even more room at the back, allowing the rear-seat passenger to really stretch out.
Also part of the package is a massage function integrated into the rear seat calf rests, a neck/shoulder heating function for the rear passengers, adaptive rear lighting, powered rear door opening and closing, an optional rear refrigeration compartment between the Executive seats and active road noise compensation, which employs the Burmester 4D sound system to produce counter-phased sound waves.
The 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is expected to cost somewhere around Rs 1.50 crore (approx.).
The current 2019 Maybach S 560 Maestro in the Indian portfolio starts at Rs 2.10 crore (ex-showroom).
