The 18 cm longer wheelbase compared to the long variant of the Mercedes Benz S Class entirely benefits the rear. This is underlined by even more refined appointments. The massage function of the calfrests on the Executive seats is a new feature. On request, the exclusive appearance of the Mercedes Maybach S Class can be enhanced by a two tone paint finish with dividing line. This is applied by hand according to the highest quality criteria.

Distinguishing features at the front include the distinctive bonnet with a chromed fin and the Mercedes Maybach radiator grille with fine, vertical chrome pinstripes. The Mercedes Maybach S Class also differs from its brother models when viewed from the side: the rear doors are wider, and the C pillars feature a fixed quarterlight. A Maybach brand logo on the C pillar underlines the exclusivity. On request, the Mercedes Maybach S Class can be equipped with electrically operated comfort rear doors.

With this feature, the wide rear doors can be conveniently opened and closed with little force even on a gradient. Integration into the infotainment and control system MBUX and Blind Spot Assist ensures a high level of operating convenience and additional safety. The rear doors can also be operated from the driver's seat an important function when chauffeur driven. Digital light technology celebrated its world debut in small series production of the preceding model, but is now in full series production with the new S Class generation.

The interior of the Mercedes Maybach S Class is based on the completely new interior design of the new Mercedes‑Benz S Class. The large areas of trim on the front seats are a new feature in the Mercedes Maybach. High‑quality wood surrounds encase the rear of the front seat backrests, giving the impression of generous lounge seats. If the First Class Rear is specified, a similarly striking area of trim is positioned between the two rear passengers.
