Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600
The newest model to come from the Stuttgart-based carmaker's uber-luxury stable, the Maybach GLS 600 is here to compete with the likes of the Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, and Maserati Levante.
The Maybach GLS comes with a chrome B-pillar the brand logo on the D-pillar, and the massive 23-inch multi-spoke wheels (optional) that extra bit of bling.
The sculpted lines on the bonnet are identical to the ones on the regular GLS, and the profile too shows a bit of resemblance with the squared wheel arches and the roof rails.
The rear section too has been given that touch of luxury with chrome bezels for the taillamps along with a chrome strip connecting the reflectors and new tailpipe trim elements with a small cross rib that emphasizes the model's identity as a Mercedes-Maybach.
The cabin, which is the main highlight of this car, is decidedly luxurious. Whichever you opt for, 4-seater or 5-seater, the two outer rear seats can be electronically converted into reclining seats, while the padded areas and the dashboard are draped in Nappa leather.
An electronic panoramic sliding/tilting sunroof with an opaque roller blind is standard, as are heated and ventilated massaging seats.
The SUV comes with a 3135 mm long wheelbase, out of which the rear passengers get legroom of 1103 mm.
In the optional 4-seater version comes with a fixed centre console that comes with extending, folding tables.
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 gets even a refrigerator with space for champagne bottles, along with silver champagne flutes offered as part of accessories.
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 will be powered by a 4.0-litre V8 engine that is tuned to churn out 542 bhp and develops about 730 Nm of peak torque
The signature wide display unit featuring the instrument cluster and media display comes with two 12.3-inch screens as standard and is equipped with the latest MBUX infotainment system.
The engine is combined with the 48-volt system EQ Boost, which offers an additional 250 Nm of torque and 21 bhp output, available temporarily.
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC will enter the global market in the second half of 2020.
