The German marque has just revealed the newest member of the most luxurious member of its full-size model - the 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. The auto will also get the rear airbag that was introduced on the new S-Class as well.

This is the new Z223 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, and it is essentially a more opulent version of the seventh-generation S-Class that made its debut in September this year.

The post New Maybach is the superlative S-Class appeared first on Hagerty Media. The wheelbase has elevated by 180 mm, which is completely accessible for the rear seat passengers.

Selected markets will also receive in the future a plug-in hybrid version of the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, featuring a 3.0-liter straight-six petrol engine paired to an electric motor for a combined 503 HP.

A Maybach badge is included on the C-pillar, while the special model scores its own variant-specific rear bumper and exhaust tailpipe design. It's got plenty of active and passive passenger safety functions, an intuitive-as-ever on-board computer which is gunning for the chauffeur's job and individual seats (which can recline upto 43 degrees) with a refrigerator and two champagne glasses plonked at the back, so you know what to do with your unoccupied hands, now that the doors practically shut themselves. Accordingly, the rear doors are wider and can be specified to open electronically, with separate door controls for a chauffeur to open or close the door without needing to exit the vehicle.

In addition, the Maybach S-Class gets an active ambient lighting system, which consists of 253 LEDs, a head-up display with augmented reality, along with an optional Interior Assist function, which uses cameras to track movements of the passengers and triggers certain functions.

However given emissions regulations, the Maybach will likely score the same engine as the Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 SUV revealed late a year ago - a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with 48V mild-hybrid technology, developing 410kW from 6000-6500rpm and 730Nm from 2500-5000rpm. A 9-speed automatic gearbox sends power to all four wheels via the 4-Matic all-wheel-drive system. Meanwhile, the new-generation S-Class can be slated to reach subsequent 12 months within the nation with costs anticipated to begin from ₹ 1.5 crore (all costs, ex-showroom) onwards. The rear-axle steering and E-Active Body Control suspension are both optional with the limousine.

Other luxury aspects include the option of wood surrounds that encase the rear of the front seat backrests, if you need even more of a lounge feel while inside.

The new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class also features a Level 3 driver assistance system, which will allow the driver to take his hands off the steering wheel in situations like heavy traffic or on selected motorways once the system becomes legal from the second half of 2021. We tell you why this chauffeur-driven choice might just be a flawless match for you. 1. The automobile may even get the rear airbag that was launched on the brand new S-Class as effectively.
