The new 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach continues its tradition of offering the highest level of hand-crafted refinement, personalization and prestige. This latest offering from Mercedes will take the exquisite S-Class to a whole new level.
2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach Design
Judging by the exterior, you can mistake the 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach for your typical big Mercedes. Aside from the size stretch and the new Maybach badges, German automaker has included a few subtle changes to separate this from the normal S-Class. The rear door is now shortened, which means that the quarter window at the back of the vehicle is mounted on its body, rather than on the door. The front end of the vehicle features dominant radiator trim with a large radiator opening and three double louvers in chrome. Horizontal lines on its rear end emphasize its width. When you consider its exterior design, the vehicle combines stylish, effortless superiority with trend-setting exclusivity.
The first thing you will notice when you enter the vehicle is the extra legroom, and that’s because the interior has been stretched by eight inches. Comfort and sophistication is what awaits you when you consider the hand-stitched leather that adorns the entire cabin, including the seats. When it comes to trim levels, you can choose from seven different interior design packages, and you can also expect the following features from this amazing vehicle. The massive sunroof provides a panoramic view.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach also comes with 1,540-watt audio system with 24 speakers and 24 separate amplifiers, which relay booming sounds with crisp high notes. For your comfort, you can enjoy the twin rear climate control and air purification system. Perhaps the most impressive feature of this vehicle is the fact that the cabin is amazingly quiet. New doors, laminated glass and extra insulation have combined to make it the quietest sedan you can find in production anywhere in the world.
