Mercedes-Maybach S-Class launched in India at Rs. 2.5 crore
German auto giant Mercedes-Benz has launched the new Maybach S-Class in India. The flagship sedan is offered in S 580 and S 680 variants and carries a starting price-tag of Rs. 2.5 crore (ex-showroom). The S 580 variant will be locally manufactured in Chakan, Maharashtra, while the more premium S 680 trim will be available as a completely built unit.
Why does this story matter?
The Maybach S-Class is a more premium and stretched-out version of the luxurious S-Class sedan. The new-generation model was introduced in the global markets in November 2020 and has now arrived in India. It is the second product under the Maybach brand in India, joining the Maybach GLS 600 SUV that was launched here for Rs. 2.43 crore.
The sedan rides on 21-inch wheels and has automatic handles
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has a large chromed grille with vertical slats, sleek LED headlights, and chrome-finished air vents. In comparison to the standard S-Class, it has a nearly 180mm longer wheelbase. The sedan gets a chrome finish on the B-pillars, "Maybach" logos on the C-pillars, automatic flush-fitted handles, and rides on 21-inch alloy wheels. Wrap-around LED taillights and chrome-coated exhaust tips grace the rear.
Both variants come with all-wheel-drive as standard
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class S 580 runs on a 4.0-liter V8 engine that makes 503hp/700Nm while the S 680 variant packs a 6.0-liter V12 mill that generates 612hp/900Nm. Both come with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, an all-wheel-drive system, and some Level 2 autonomous driving features.
It has electrically adjustable seats with memory function
The Maybach S-Class comes with so many features that it is impossible to list all of them here. It has high-quality leather upholstery, ambient lighting, heated and ventilated seats with massage and memory function, an air ionizing system, a panoramic sunroof, and 13 airbags. You also get temperature-controlled cup holders, a refrigerator, a 30-speaker Burmester sound system, and multiple displays for information and entertainment.
