EXTERIOR OF MERCEDES BENZ S CLASS:
The new Mercedes Benz Maybach S600 Guard looks exactly the same like the existing S Class variants, but with some minor differences. Only a keen eye will be able to notice the exact difference.
As we can see, its external appearance is gracefully designed with splendid build quality down to the closest detail. It is pretty long, wide and reasonably low in height that expresses the royalty from all frames. Further adding to its appeal is the expressive lines that stretches from the front to the rear end through the door panels.
While its coupe and sedan versions look completely different from each other. The coupe trims are designed with two doors, and have sleek, bold and stylish body structure as compared to other trims.
However, its AMG version looks sportier than the regular variants, thanks to its exclusive package featuring bumpers, alloy wheels, a distinctly designed radiator grille and extensive black accents as well
To start with the front, it has a beautifully sculptured signature grille with thick chrome surround. It is accompanied by the company’s emblem positioned on top of the hood.
INTERIOR OF MERCEDES BENZ S CLASS:
The interiors exude a quality of abundance that few other vehicles could.As you make your way into the cabin, you’re to be greeted by fine leather dressing, rich inlays, chrome and many more elements that make the atmosphere as dynamic as possible.
At the front, a large wooden strip embraces the bottom of the dashboard, stretching from one end to the other. The circular air vents have a touch of chrome that makes a strong design statement.
At the focus of the dash, the large display hosts the multimedia and navigation systems.
At the base of the centre console, a large black inlay is sure to have your attention, while the steel gear knob goes along with the premium air.
PERFORMANCE AND PETROL OF MERCEDES BENZ S CLASS:
Armed within the vehicle is a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine with a displacement of 4663cc.The power-train consists of 6 cylinders, and is equipped with a turbocharger. We thought that the specs were better than any other model in the class, with 453bhp of power between 5250 to 5500rpm and a grinding torque of 700Nm at 1800-3500rpm.
A second engine, available for the sedan trims, is the 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8 engine that generates 585bhp of maximum power at 5500rpm and 900Nm of torque at 2250 to 3750rpm.
Lastly, for the ‘S Guard’ trim and Maybach S600 trims, there is 6.0-litre engine that comes with 530bhp of power at 4900rpm and 830Nm of torque at 1900rpm.
All of the engines are blended with a 7-speed automatic transmission gearbox that makes shifting a flawless affair. Overall, the driver is sure to have a pleasant affair, with a linear power delivery, well channelled torque and well controlled vibrations within the cabin.
SAFETY OF MERCEDES BENZ:
A broad airbag system shields the occupants, including dual front airbags, window bags, side airbags and window bags.Along with this, the company has incorporated a slew of other safety programs, such as an electric parking brake, night view assist plus, ESP curve dynamic assist, brake wear warning display, active parking assist, adaptive braking lights and many more.
