What it's like inside Mercedes-Maybach's new ultra-luxury SUV

What it's like inside Mercedes-Maybach's new ultra-luxury SUV”

We have seen a number of new vehicles from Mercedes today and now we have the new New Mercedes-Maybach GLS.

The GLS 600 4Matic is described by its maker as a "new form of luxury" - but, of course, it isn't; not when Bentley and Rolls-Royce are already alive and kicking in the large SUV segment. Maybach brand emblems are also dotted around the auto, with other unique features around the tail pipe trim, just to remind people you've paid for much more than a standard GLS. Additional chrome can also be found throughout the exterior of the GLS including the side window trim, tailgate centerpiece, and rear bumper guard.

The side profile reveals bespoke 22-inch alloy wheels, although we have a feeling many people will go for the optional 23-inch set with its multi-spoke layout mimicking the front grille. A total of eight two-tone finishes will be available, and regardless of choice, the Maybach emblem will be proudly displayed on the D-pillar. In true luxury fashion, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS can only seat 2 at the back. They don't ruin the overall aesthetic as the running boards retract behind the sill panels (or extend out) in around 1.5 seconds.

The Maybach GLS600 prioritises rear-seat passengers and can be optioned with two leather-clad reclining seats (taking centre stage over the traditional rear bench).

Mercedes-Maybach used ongoing Los Angeles Auto Show to showcase their latest family member.

Each rear occupant also gets a 11.6-inch tablet screen to help pass the time. Those seats, your magnificence, will gently suck away the heat generated by your movement when you're first seated, and can then be set to heat, cool, or run a series of ten-minute massage programs on your exhausted posterior chain.

Other available extras that can be installed on this GLS include: folding tables, a refrigerator to store champagne bottles and flutes, a dedicated fragrance system that can perfume the cabin, temperature-controlled cupholders, and a wireless mobile interface which can be had with a Bluetooth receiver for private conversations.

Under the hood, expect to find the GLS 580's 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 with EQ Boost as the base powertrain.

Rumored to cost as much as $200,000, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS should have just about every high-end feature the three-pointed star can offer, from the finest leather to the latest technological developments. For an SUV that weighs 2785kg, the GLS600 is brisk, with the 0-100km/h test being covered in 4.9 seconds - and it'll go on to a top speed of 250km/h. The top speed is hard-capped at 250 km/h (155 mph), but you may opt for the AMG Driver's Package to raise it to 280 km/h (174 mph). Pricing has not been disclosed as of yet, but it will hit United States market by second half of next year.
