It only feels like yesterday when the biggest luxury automaker, Mercedes-Benz, announced the release of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class for the 2022 model year. After hitting the market, the Mercedes-Maybach blew up its competition. Now the new Maybach is in a different league and shows us how far luxury can go.
There are plenty of highlights of the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. These include advanced driver assistance systems, comfort doors and new adaptive rear lighting. Under the hood, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz Maybach offers the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. It produces 496 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and an insane 516 lb-ft of peak torque at 2,000 rpm. For more power, the 2022 model year Maybach brings the dominating 6.0-liter V12 engine back into the mix. This is the same engine offered in the previous generation Maybach. Power from this premium twin-turbo engine is a staggering 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive and a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic gearbox. But there’s something even cooler about the S-Class aside from the beefy powertrain and fast transmission.
Beneath the flashy exterior styling, and beyond those suave doors, is a well-refined interior. It also contains a plethora of advanced technologies and several other amazing things. For the 2022 model year, the S-Class Maybach offers a luxury interior that puts it on par with the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Bentley Continental GT.
Let’s say more about the interior of the 2022 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, because we consider it the most luxurious interior ever built in a luxury car.
2022 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class interior hits ‘Bulls Eye’ on looks
The interior of the Mercedes-Maybach beats any interior we’ve seen this year. As a sub-brand of Mercedes-Maybach that focuses on delivering more luxury, it’s more than impressive. At first glance, the whole interior of the S-Class looks fascinating, with luxurious touches. There is no feature in the car that lacks a high level of detail. One of the first things we noticed is that the interior feels larger than usual.
The wheelbase is now about 7 inches longer than its predecessor. This means you have more space in the cabin upholstered in premium leather, especially in the rear. Speaking of space, the rear seats in the S-Class offer about 49.1 inches of legroom and 38.1 inches of headroom. The console is so massive that it extends from the dashboard and extends to the rear seats to become the armrest.
The luxury sedan offers up to five interior colors: Sienna Brown, Macchiato Beige, Crystal White, Exclusive Black Nappa and Silver Grey. Color combinations are also offered. The dial instruments float in a rose gold hue. This is also part of the rear seat LED lighting technology in the rear. Another thing we love about the interior is the luxury wood trim, which gives it a more elegant appearance.
2022 Mercedes-Maybach technology brings the future to the present
First, there are five screens in the Mercedes-Benz. The main highlight is a central 12.8-inch OLED display, which floats on the dashboard as a high-tech control center. The other front screen measures 12.3 inches. This display provides its driver with a three-dimensional representation of other road users on the road. To provide finer details, the system offers shadow effects and more depth. The rear entertainment system includes two 11.6-inch screens behind each front seatback. These have user-friendly menus and a super-sharp display.
The display screens come with plenty of content to keep rear passengers entertained on even the longest journeys. Moreover, users can even share screen content. A wireless headset system is also available. Rear users can also plug their USB sticks, MP3 players or iPhones into the large armrest. This gives you the option of recharging it or using it as a source of entertainment.
Another feature is the S-Class’ smartphone integration system. This allows passengers to connect their smartphone, Android or iPhone, to the car via the integrated Android Auto or Apple CarPlay systems. Once connected, users can choose to enjoy music through Maybach’s high-end Burmester® 4D surround sound system. Unlike most speaker systems, this one includes up to 30 speakers. In addition, users can also activate certain vehicle functions via voice control.
Other Comfort and Convenience Features of the 2022 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class
Today, luxury cars continue to rely on exceptional comfort. The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is no different. The coolest and most practical feature inside the new Maybach is the MBUX Interior Assist. This system responds to your natural body movements and hand gestures and provides adaptive light to what you need. If you add the optional Executive Rear Seat Plus package, you can get an extended center console, additional rear wood trim, folding tables, and more.
Other optional features include a fridge, champagne glasses and electronically controlled automatic comfort doors. One of the most expensive packages is the MANUFAKTUR Leather Package, which costs $8,000.
The vehicle also comes with a convenient seat belt feature. Each time you take your seat, the automated system offers you the seat belt. When you strap it on, you’ll feel the seatbelt loader retract into place to keep you strapped in. On top of that, the seats in the S-Class have heating and ventilation functions, all combining to give every passenger the best luxury experience ever offered in a car.
