Mercedes Maybach GLS 600 4matic
Maybach is a sub-brand of the Mercedes-Benz AG. Now they have presented their second model beside the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. The second model is based on the GLS SUV.
Now you can order the new Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4matic. The delivery will start in the first quarter of 2021.
The Maybach GLS 600 4matic is equipped with the 4.0 liters V8 BiTurbo with 558 hp and 700 NM of torque. Between the engine and the 9-speed-automatic transmission there is a 48 volt integrated starter generator. It delivers additional 22 hp and 250 NM of torque. The sprint to 100 kph is done in 4.9s. Topspeed is limited to 250 kph.
The Maybach GLS is not available with the 3rd seat row. You have the option between a second seat row with 3 seats or two luxury seats which you may know from the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class.
Comfort and luxury:
Seating comfort in all seats has always been a stand-out feature of all Mercedes-Maybach vehicles. In the new Mercedes-Maybach GLS, all seats are electrically adjustable, heated, climatised and equipped with massage functions as standard.
The front and rear seats in the Mercedes-Maybach are climatised, including ventilation and heating of the seat cushions and backrests. Once activated, the ventilation operates in 'reverse' mode initially – in other words, air is drawn away from the passenger's body for around one minute at first. Cooled air is then directed at the passenger's body during continuous operation. In this way, the unpleasant effect of excessive heat transfer away from the body can be avoided. In cold temperatures, the fast-acting seat heating provides thermal comfort with almost no delay. If the GLS is equipped with the optional auxiliary heater, seat heating and seat ventilation can also be activated before getting into the vehicle using the Mercedes me App on a smartphone or an optional additional key.
The Executive area in the rear is available in a choice of two different designs - with two or three seats. In both versions, the two outer seats are Executive seats with calf supports and backrests that recline a long way back. The multicontour upholstery offers good lateral support through the backrest and thus high comfort on long journeys and when driving on rough terrain.
The height and angle of the comfort head restraints on the Executive seats are electrically adjustable.
The Maybach GLS 600 4matic is equipped with MBUX, MBUX Rear Tablet and MBUX Rear Seat Entertainment System.
The removable tablet further enhances ease of operation when the rear passenger has adopted a particularly comfortable, reclined position with the separate cushions. If the occupant then also wants to use the seat's climatisation or massage function, listen to music or adjust the ambient lighting, they do not need to sit up again to select the setting.
The climatised seats and the massage functions are integrated into the ENERGIZING package's comfort control. ENERGIZING comfort control networks various comfort systems in the vehicle and uses lighting and musical moods plus a number of massages for a wide range of feel-good programmes. The ENERGIZING COACH, which recommends these programmes based on the situation, can offer programmes such as Freshness and Vitality or, in conjunction with the Warmth Comfort package, also Warmth, Joy and Comfort programmes. If a compatible wearable or a smartwatch is worn, personal values such as stress level or quality of sleep optimise the accuracy of the recommendation.
The programmes all run for 10 minutes.
The standard-fit Executive Climate System (ECS) has a separate air conditioner for the rear and controls the temperature and the air quantity on the left and right and in both seat rows separately. Numerous vents ensure effective and draught-free air supply to exactly where it is needed. Those in the footwell at the front and rear operate independently from those in the B-pillars, for example. Above the rear doors there are additional, fixed outlet openings which are used by the rear air conditioner and make the ventilation particularly pleasant and indirect. Two additional electric heating elements in the rear footwell provide a pleasant temperature in double-quick time, even when it's cold outside.
Even more wellness is assured by the AIR-BALANCE package. This has two particularly clever features. One is active fragrancing of the interior: activated, deactivated and variably controlled via a separate menu in the infotainment system, a fragrance generator perfumes the air entering the interior with a pleasant fragrance from a glass flask. The new Mercedes-Maybach GLS has its own signature fragrance: the white osmanthus blossom, floral and light, is rounded off by a gentle leather note and spicy tea.
The Burmester® high-end 3D surround sound system is designed to meet the highest individual requirements. Some 27 high-performance speakers and 24 separate amplifier channels provide an overall output of 1590 watts. It offers superb sound quality precisely tuned to the interior. Both systems have an integrated two-way ICC (In-Car Communication) system to make it easier for occupants in the front and rear seats to converse.
