2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class gains unique grille, two-tone paintwork

As well as other exclusive interior appointments

Following the facelift of the entire S-Class lineup last year, Mercedes-Benz is now differentiating top Maybach-branded versions even further from their "lesser" siblings. The luxury brand wants to achieve that via a series of styling updates for the exterior and the interior.

Chief among them is the new Mercedes-Maybach grille with vertical struts, inspired by a pinstriped suit and first seen on the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 coupé study in 2016. You will now have no excuse for mistaking a Mercedes-Maybach S-Class for a regular S-Class.

Another exclusive feature for Maybach S-Class models is now the optional two-tone paintwork, with nine different color combinations available. The lower part of the car features a double clear coat with a piano lacquer effect and "a special impression of depth," while the upper half gets a clear coat that includes intermediate sanding and is applied by hand in the Maybach Manufaktur.

Exterior upgrades are rounded off by a new 20-inch multi-spoke alloy wheel, one of three exclusive 20-inch wheels available on the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class (including the model with a 20-hole design from the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Cabriolet).

Moving on to the interior two new exclusive color combinations are introduced: armagnac brown/black and savanna beige/black. The black Maybach Exclusive nappa leather upholstery appointments can also be had with copper-, gold- or platinum-colored contrasting topstitching. Also new are the trim inserts in designo flowing lines Magnolia.

The rest of the package remains as you know it, with the Maybach S-Class measuring 5,462-mm in length, the wheelbase of 3,365 mm exceeding that of the long-wheelbase S-Class by 200 mm — much to the benefit of rear passengers that sit on standard Executive seats.

There are two models available, the S 560 powered by a 469-hp 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 (also available as S 560 5Matic) and the S 650 motivated by a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that makes 630 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque. Sales of the updated Mercedes-Maybach S-Class begin in April 2018.

For those who want the most expensive S-Class money can buy, the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman version remains at the top of the food chain.
