2022 Mercedes Benz S-Class Maybach Review: Specs and Pricing

2022 Mercedes Benz S-Class Maybach


The 2022 Mercedes-Maybach S-class succeeds in out-luxuriously the Mercedes-Benz S-class, which is no easy feat. This super-luxury car provides more high-end goodies than we can list and is a worthy competitor to the Bentley Flying Spur and the Rolls-Royce Ghost.

A V-8 and a V-12 twin-turbo engine is available, and all variants have all-wheel drive. Given its expanded body and optional massaging and reclining rear seats, which entice passengers to unwind and live their best lives, it is perfect for chauffeuring. In contrast to its competitors' more eye-catching exteriors, the Maybach S-restrained class's style allows it to blend into traffic without garnering too much notice.

What has changed for 2022?

The S680 4Matic sedan, a V-12 engine option, is added to the Maybach roster for 2022. The large limo is supposed to accelerate to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds thanks to the V-12 engine's 621 horsepower. According to Mercedes-Maybach, some 2022 models that are typically supplied with V-8 engines won't be available.

This lineup modification might affect the S580, however, Mercedes-Maybach personnel would not comment on or confirm that information as of the time of publication.

Which one to Purchase?

If you're going to choose a Maybach S-class, you might as well go all out and choose the S680 with its potent V-12 engine. Luxury amenities like soft-close doors, air suspension, a 30-speaker Burmester radio, a rear-seat entertainment system with two 11.6-inch touchscreens, and many other features are included as standard equipment.

2022 Mercedes Benz S-Class Maybach: Interior and Comfort

The already roomy Benz-branded S-class sedan has a wheelbase seven inches shorter than the Maybach S-class, which results in even more stretch-out space inside the leather-lined interior. A 64-color interior ambient lighting system, heated and ventilated front seats with massage functions and four memory settings, heated rear seats with power adjustments and massage, an air ionizing system with a signature fragrance, and a panoramic sunroof are all standard on Maybach models, among a plethora of other luxurious features that we could not possibly list here.

For customers who plan to be chauffeured, Maybach offers the optional Executive Rear Seat Plus package, which features temperature-controlled cup holders, more rear seat wood trim, an extended center console, and folding tables for the backseats. Electrically controlled rear doors, a refrigerator, and champagne glasses bearing the Maybach logo are additional options.

2022 Mercedes Benz S-Class Maybach: Connectivity

The Maybach is equipped as standard with the most recent MBUX infotainment system from Mercedes, which is presented on a 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen. All models come equipped with an augmented reality navigation system that shows clear video directions on both the infotainment display and the vehicle's head-up display.

A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is also standard. Standard features include wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, six USB-C ports, a 30-speaker Burmester sound system, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a rear-seat entertainment system.

2022 Mercedes Benz S-Class Maybach: Engine and Performance

Every S580 sedan has a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine that produces 496 horsepower. It also has a 48-volt hybrid system. With the S680, a 6.0-liter V-12 with 621 horsepower is installed. The 4Matic all-wheel drive technology from Mercedes will be standard on all variants. Based on our quick test drive, the V-8 has 33 more horsepower than the previous S560 from 2020, and it has a lot of power.

The V-12 has the same amount of power as the 2020 S650 model and lacks a 48-volt hybrid technology. We haven't had an opportunity to evaluate the performance of either model, but when we do, we'll update this article with our findings and driving impressions.

A silky, ultra-quiet ride is made possible by the new model's standard air suspension and active noise reduction technology. The S-class also has rear-wheel steering, making it easier to maneuver this large sedan through congested city streets.

2022 Mercedes Benz S-Class Maybach: Pricing

The 2022 Mercedes S-Class Maybach is priced at $185,950 for the S580 4Matic and S680 4Matic is priced at $230,050.
