When it comes to the upper end of the luxury segment, one car rises above the rest, the Mercedes Maybach, which will be launched this May in the South African market.
Representing the ultimate in sophistication like never before, a compilation of the finest quality materials, phenomenal craftsmanship, incomparable comfort and state-of-the-art technology that elevate your journey to a new level of driving.
“Mercedes-Maybach is the quintessential luxury brand reflecting the impeccable craftsmanship and with that the superior exclusivity and finesse of its products,” says Mark Raine, Co-CEO and Executive Director of Mercedes-Benz South Africa, “the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is synonymous with a one-of-a-kind ultimate luxury experience reserved for only a privileged chosen few.”
The interior of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is based on the completely new interior design of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The large areas of trim on the front seats are a new feature in the Mercedes-Maybach. High-quality wood surrounds encase the rear of the front seat backrests, giving the impression of generous lounge seats. If the First-Class Rear is specified, a similarly striking area of trim is positioned between the two rear passengers.
“The new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class defines ultimate luxury like never before with the highest-quality materials, excellent workmanship, outstanding comfort as well as innovative technologies,” says Selvin Govender, Vice President for Marketing and Sales at Mercedes-Benz Cars.
With Active road noise compensation, the interior of the already very quiet Mercedes-Maybach S-Class becomes even quieter. In a similar way to headphones with noise suppression, the system reduces unwanted low-frequency noises using counter-phased sound waves. The bass speakers of the Burmester high-end 4D surround sound system are used for sound reproduction.
The aim of the new Mercedes-Maybach, is to leave all eyes staring in awe and render bystanders speechless by the majesty of this vehicle. It’s flawless design commands a presence and authority that demands attention. Its superior elegance and majestic body create a feeling of spaciousness and imperial aura that combine in pure automotive harmony.
This highest form of the vehicle’s comfort and inventive beauty represents the affluence of its owners. The Maybach heralds a longer and more supreme shape, extended wheelbases and wider rear doors that accentuate the vehicles regality, all creating maximum spaciousness for its owners maximum comfort. Chrome highlights and trimmings give the vehicle a transcendent touch and exquisite elite signature look. The epitome of superb design and comfort is brought to life in the car’s interior, as opulence radiates from the inside of this chariot of wealth. Boasting a wide selection of the finest materials, refined surfaces and seat variations that can be configured into your one-of-a-kind Maybach. Enveloping you in a sea of personal extravagance, making your experience and car extremely unique and tailor-made for you.
The visual highlight in the interior is the large central display in portrait format. It is ergonomically well positioned, as the screen is within easy touch and vision between the driver and front passenger. The portrait format also allows longer lists to be displayed. The central display features OLED technology as standard. OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode. Compared to LCD screens, the advantages of this technology are a better black level, even stronger contrasts and a lower energy consumption.
The innovative MBUX takes driving pleasure to new heights with high resolution touchscreens or voice controlled operation for ease of use and infotainment. This system is designed to adapt to your comfort and learn your needs over time, setting the car temperature, your music, to even releasing the signature MAYBACH MOOD fragrance at the time you set it to.
Every Maybach dons the centre console with the brands signature waterfall design, the coveted MANUFAKTUR backrest trim in wood, comfort doors that open at the touch of a button and the automatic seatbelt feeder that comes to you as you take your seat.
