The new-generation Mercedes-Maybach S580 will go on sale next year and the model will be brought down as a Completely Built Unit.

The rear doors are wider than those of the standard S-Class sedan.

This time it's the Maybach S-Class, a auto Mercedes says "combines the perfection and high-tech solutions of Mercedes Benz' top luxury saloons with the exclusivity and century-long tradition of Maybach".

Moving inside the cabin, Mercedes has made the Maybach S-Class a technological tour-de-force, with up to five display screens included starting with a 12.8-inch OLED tablet-style central display, featuring self-illuminating pixel technology.

Apart from that, it gets a massage function integrated into the rear seat calf rests, a neck/shoulder heating function for the rear passengers, adaptive rear lighting, powered rear door opening and closing, an optional rear refrigeration compartment between the Executive seats as well as active road noise compensation, which makes use of the Burmester 4D sound system to produce counter-phased sound waves. Finally, the rear seat passengers are eligible for their own frontal airbags. The new rear wheel arches, thicker laminated glass on C-pillar and noise-optimised tyres with foam absorbers further improve the performance of the NVH (noise, vibrations and harshness) characteristics. 3. The seats have a maximum backrest angle of 43.5 degrees for lounging, and in its most upright position of 19 degrees, allows for relaxed working in conjunction with the folding table on the front seat backrests.

Selected markets will also receive in the future a plug-in hybrid version of the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, featuring a 3.0-liter straight-six petrol engine paired to an electric motor for a combined 503 HP.

The Mercedes Maybach S-Class 2021 doesn't just offer an ultra expensive drive experience from within but looks the part of being a palace on wheels as well.

There's also the optional active ambient lighting system, which has two more LEDs than the regular S-Class at 253 LEDs, along with two more colour themes (rose gold white and amethyst glow). It comes mated to a 9-speed auto and there is all-wheel drive, rear-axle steering and an exclusive Maybach drive mode too.

Also available is the Pre-Safe Impulse side function (part of the E-Active Body Control suspension), which lifts the vehicle up by 80mm when it detects an impending side-on crash.

Other luxury aspects include the option of wood surrounds that encase the rear of the front seat backrests, if you need even more of a lounge feel while inside. According to Autocar India, in India, the new Mercedes-Benz S Class will only be launched sometime in the second half of 2021, and Mercedes-Benz India is expected to introduce the standard S500 in our market first.

To the end of October, Mercedes has sold 144 examples of the S-Class, down 15.3 per cent year-on-year but still enough to lead the premium upper-large segment with a 30.7 per cent share.
