Mercedes-Maybach GLS Revealed

Maybach 3

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS has been officially revealed and it looks like the perfect rival to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Bentley Bentayga. 

For some, the level of luxury in the current Mercedes-Benz GLS may not be enough to satisfy. Enter the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4Matic, which the German brand claims 'represents a new form of luxury in the SUV segment'. Scheduled for a global market introduction in the second half of 2020, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4Matic boasts considerable upgrades both to the car's mechanicals and the cabin, with the focus on luxury and comfort.

Under the bonnet is a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 engine with an electric EQ Boost. Total output is rated at 410 kW and 730 Nm. Performance for such a hefty vehicle is impressive with a claimed 0-100 kph time of 4.9 seconds. As you can see, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4Matic rides on large 22-inch wheels, but there are 23-inch units available as an option. Air suspension is standard, but we think customers will go for the fully-active suspension E-Active Body Control.

The passengers benefit from some incredible features such as when the doors open, the vehicle lowers slightly and an illuminated running board deploys to allow for easy access. The rear benefits from two individual seats which can recline. These seats boast ventilation and massage functionality. The padded areas and dash are finished in Nappa leather and there's an extensive feeling of luxury throughout, with MBUX tablets offering in-car entertainment. There's also a dedicated fragrance dispenser for the Maybach GLS.
