Mercedes-Benz gives the S-Class Maybach a slight refresh

Mercedes-Benz is busy updating their current range and started with the facelifted version of the C-Class. The German automaker followed that up by officially unveiling the refreshed Mercedes-Maybach. Much like the C-Class, one will need a sharp eye to see all the tweaks for 2018.

Perhaps most noticeable is the grill, now featuring a cascading design. Also, there are now vertical slats present on the lower air intakes, plus the addition of chrome detailing brings the big sedan up to date against its newer competitors. Also present are new wheel designs, now featuring a new multi-spoke design. This design is exclusive to the Mercedes-Maybach.

Inside, it is mostly carried over save for updated tech. The 'Glass Cockpit' instrument panel and infotainment screen is standard on the flagship sedan. With a much longer wheelbase over the already extended S-Class LWB, space is expected to be abundant, particularly in the rear quarters. They also announced new color combinations and trimmings for the cabin. Other than that, the interior is largely the same as the pre-facelift model.

Two engine options are available for the Maybach. It starts with a 4.0-liter, BiTurbo V8 which is based on the AMG models. The result is 469 PS and 700 Nm of torque, which is then coursed through all four wheels. For those who want even more power, the turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 is also available with 630 PS and a staggering 1,001 Nm of torque.
