This is the all New 2021 Mercedes Maybach S Class S580.
Offering a much larger rear seat and chrome-heavy styling, the Maybach is the company’s luxury darling.
Like its predecessor, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will go toe-to-toe with the Bentley Flying Spur V8 and Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The full Maybach experience actually starts before you even step inside. Taking a cue from the new Rolls-Royce Ghost, the extended rear doors can be operated electrically (using the car’s blind spot monitors to prevent door dings). The driver can also operate the doors from the front seat – doormen, start brushing up your resumes now, because the machines have arrived.
Once on-board, passengers enjoy a larger cabin thanks to a 7.1-inch wheelbase stretch. What’s more, VIPs don’t have to share any of that space with the front seats, with the added space between the wheels dedicated exclusively to the rear cabin. Individually adjustable bucket seats come standard in back, featuring backrests that can adjust between 19 and 44 degrees and a deployable leg rest on the passenger side. As before, a “chauffeur” mode allows the right rear occupant to motor the front seat forward and out of the way, opening up enough room for a 6-foot-3 passenger to stretch out.
The Maybach gets heating, cooling, and multicontour massage in every seating position, with heated armrests and door panels ensuring a cozy cabin on chilly days. What’s more, the rear seat footrest now incorporates – get this – calf massage, which is peak hedonism in our book. Although every Mercedes-Maybach will assuredly be a comfortable place to spend time, more distinguishing owners can select an Executive Rear Seat Package that includes more generous application of wood trim, a full-length center console, and deployable tray tables. A rear-seat champagne cooler and custom solid metal flutes are optional as well.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class hearkened the next generation of MBUX infotainment, and the Maybach S580 picks up where the “mainstream” sedan left off – five infotainment screens come standard, compared to the base S-Class’ two There’s a 12.8-inch display front and center, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, two 11.6-inch rear-seat entertainment monitors, and a removable tablet that docks in the rear center console.
Benevolently, the Maybach team decided to include the chauffeur on the fun, thanks in part to a standard twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 with EQ Boost mild-hybrid technology. 4Matic all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic gearbox should put all 496 horsepower and 516 pound-feet (370 kilowatts and 700 newton-meters) down effectively. However, keen shoppers will note that power is down compared to the 550-hp (410-kw), 538–lb-ft (729 Nm) 2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600. That’s because Maybach is preparing a limited-production V12 version of the sedan, or it could perhaps adopt the rumored AMG S73e’s plug-in hybrid powertrain.
Standard rear-axle steering that can pivot the wheels by up to 11 degrees cuts the turning radius by a whopping 7 feet, a boon in tight city confines. Further assisting the driver is a standard head-up display, boasting world-first augmented reality navigation that projects driving directions right onto the windshield, pointing out turns, exits, and addresses as appropriate. When it’s time to relax on the open road, there’s a trim-exclusive Maybach drive mode that’s even cushier than the standard S sedan’s Comfort setting.
