2017 Mercedes-Maybach S550 4-Matic Review
While people have different tastes when it comes to automobiles, it can be argued that the 2017 Mercedes-Maybach has something to offer everyone. With a powerful drive, luxury, and comfort, this vehicle gives its money’s worth to the driver. Let’s take a deeper look and get to know all its features.
The 2017 Mercedes-Maybach can be described as the car that strikes a balance between old-school luxury and the current demands of drivers when it comes to cutting-edge technology. The roofline has been altered from the previous models to offer more headroom in the car’s rear. You’ll also notice chrome trim around the vehicle’s windows as well as on the B-pillars. The angular headlights, with a wide grille between, give the exterior of this car an appealing look. It’s all about power and style with this one.
The interior of the 2017 Mercedes-Maybach can be considered as modest with its use of black and tan hues. Some drivers might be expecting a bolder option. However, the interior does exude a sense of calmness which is supported by the comfort offered by this car, especially the rear seats. The control panel is easy to navigate and the steering wheel is comfortable to hold. The two front seats are also adequately spaced. There’s no ‘congested’ feeling when riding this vehicle.
The rear space in the 2017 Mercedes-Maybach is sure to be a treat for passengers. Two passengers can easily sit cross-legged if they want to. The overall noise is also decreased, which has led to the manufacturer boasting about this automobile featuring one of the quietest interiors. Furthermore, the rear-seat headrests also have fitted pillows. The rear seats are also positioned in such a way that the C-pillar hides the passenger’s presence, especially if they’re leaning back.
Both outboard rear seats also have leg rests, cooling and heating, as well as a massage function! An airbag is present in the seatbelts. The cabin is also kept odor-free due to the car’s exclusive integrated air freshener that smells like Agarwood. There is also a pair of screens in the back of the front seats along with standard headphones. The trunk space isn’t impressive, especially if you end up placing the throw pillows in there.
You’ll find all the latest safety and infotainment features that are also present in the S-Class automobiles from the manufacturer. You’ll get automatic braking, automatic parking, sensors, and more. It also features a 1540-watt 24-speaker Burmester High-End 3D Surround Sound stereo. You’ll also notice a speaker mounted between the two panoramic sunroofs if you go for the Magic Sky Control option.
