The new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class: The rear
First-class, even in the second row
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has an 18-centimetre longer wheelbase than the long Mercedes-Benz S-Class: The increase in space entirely benefits the rear section, which also has even more refined appointments. New features include the massage function of the calf support on the Executive seat, and a heatable additional cushion on the head restraints. The First-Class Rear has been extensively upgraded.
A clear indication that the owner of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will typically be found seated in the rear are the Executive seats on the left and right plus the Chauffeur package as standard equipment. Both the driver and rear passenger can electrically move the front passenger seat into a chauffeur position. The adjustment travel and angle of the front passenger seat and rear seats have been improved in many respects: Thanks to a modified head restraint, the front passenger backrest can be inclined forwards by a further 26° and the head restraint tilted forward to give the rear passenger a better view, while the larger ankle rest has ten millimetres more travel and can now also be folded down as a footrest.
The occupant is able to adjust the seat surface and backrest of the Executive seat independently. If the reclining position is chosen in the rear, the front passenger seat automatically moves forward if the seat occupancy recognition detects that nobody is sitting on it. Using the footrest on the front seat and the electrically extending legrest creates a continuous, comfortable reclining surface for a pleasant sleeping position. The adjustment travel of the legrest has been extended by approx. 50 mm compared to the preceding series, and the length and swivel range can be freely adjusted. As a new feature, the legrest has a calf massage function. This can further improve well-being on the rear reclining seats.
The maximum backrest angle of the Executive Seats is 43.5 degrees. The most upright backrest position of 19 degrees allows relaxed working in the rear......
Open and closed in a trice
On request, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class can be equipped with electrically operated comfort rear doors. With this feature, the wide rear doors can be conveniently opened and closed with little force even on a gradient. The integration of Blind Spot Assist into MBUX ensures a high level of operating convenience and additional safety. The rear doors can also be operated from the driver's seat - an important function when chauffeur-driven.
The comfort doors can be operated in no less than seven ways: They can be opened and closed
... manually using the inside and outside door handles,
... with the vehicle key,
... via the central display in the first seat row or
... the displays of the rear seat entertainment, or
... using a pressure switch in the roof liner.
With MBUX Interior Assist Rear, they can be closed with a corresponding hand gesture.
The doors can also be closed automatically by touching the sensor surface on the outside door handle.
Interior design of the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class
Digital and analogue luxury in harmony
The interior of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is based on the completely new interior design of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The sculptured look of the dashboard, centre console and armrests appears to float above an expansive interior landscape. Small but significant differences raise the luxury to yet another level.
In the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, digital and analogue luxury are in harmony as the high-tech ambience is combined with high-quality natural materials and fine craftsmanship. Up to five display screens are available. Included as standard is a 12.8-inch OLED central display as a high-tech control centre. With OLED technology, the individual pixels are self-illuminating. Unused pixels remain switched off, giving them a deep black effect. However, active OLED pixels shine more colourfully than their LCD equivalents. High relative contrasts are another advantage - whatever the viewing angle and light conditions. A 12.3-inch 3D driver display with three-dimensional representation of other road users and pronounced depth and shade effects is available on request.
The dial has a decorative, structured facing and the scale in is a classic Antiqua font. Mercedes-Maybach specific start‑up animations were designed for the driver and central display. The distinctive look of the driver display in display mode Exclusive underlines the special status of the Mercedes-Maybach: The surrounds of the dial instruments and the needles are in the brand colour rosé gold.
