The Maybach 2018 offers outstanding style and technology both inside and out. See interior & exterior photos. Maybach 2018 New features complemented by a lower starting price and streamlined packages. The mid-size Maybach 2018 offers a complete lineup with a wide variety of finishes and features, two conventional engines.
The lavish sedan has recently been caught on camera and you can see two prototypes in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.
Now that the German automaker has revived the Maybach name for the second time, the lavish badge sits on two different S-Class models. We have the 449 hp 4.7-liter V8-animated S550 and the 523 hp 6.0-liter V12 S600 (keep in mind that both are biturbo monsters with endless resources).
We’re dealing with a sub-brand that currently allows the clientele to choose between two MSRPs: $166,500 or $191,300, respectively.
In this stratospheric segment of the market, a mid-cycle revamp can’t bring major cosmetic changes, as customer of pre-facelift models would thus be disrespected.
However, the S-Class won’t go over its middle age crisis by delivering important exterior upgrades, so there’s no reason to worry – for instance, we’ve shown you the front apron and the taillights of the non-Maybach models and it’s possible that an untrained eye might not even spot the differences compared to the models you can currently find in a showroom.
As for the seven-star cabin, the Maybachs will get the same changes as the rest of the S-Class line-up. First of all, we can quickly go over the pair of dashboard displays moving towards a single-unit look. Secondly, as we recently showed you, we expect the German automaker is actually ready to replace the central console Comand controller with a touchpad.
When it comes to the tech area, the 48V mild hybrid system expected for the lesser S-Class incarnations could make its way into these range-toppers. Sure, it can’t provide electric propulsion, but who doesn’t enjoy some extra low- and mid-range assistance?
While we keep an eye on these prototypes (the refreshed line-up will land in 2017), remember that the three-pointed star brand has bigger plans for the Maybach label. For instance, we could see a production version of the 222-inch (5.6 meters) Mercedes-Maybach 6 Coupe concept arriving by 2018, but that’s another story for another time.
