Advanced performance comes from a high-output yet compact 4.0L biturbo V8. Exceptional output of 496 hp and 516 lb-ft of peak torque moves the Mercedes-Maybach with confidence, grace, and a sense of urgency evidenced by a 4.7-second 0-60 time. Racing-derived technology ranges from its turbocharger layout to its low-friction NANOSLIDE cylinder walls. And its high-pressure Direct Injection and rapid-multispark ignition can self-tune on the fly with millisecond speed and exceptional precision.
Electrifying the V8 biturbo gasoline engine is an innovative Integrated Starter-Generator. It teams with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery to supply power for formerly belt-driven components like the water pump and air-conditioning compressor. These advancements help reduce weight and enhance underhood packaging. In addition, the electric assist can generate additional, gas-free power and torque for immediate response.
A fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
A selector on the console lets you vary the vehicle's performance character to suit driver and passengers. DYNAMIC SELECT offers five preset modes: ECO, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and an exclusive Maybach mode. Each adapts the suspension, throttle response, shift points, and more. Maybach mode emphasizes comfort for the rear passengers by minimizing body motion and gearshifts, and making the throttle response more gentle. There's also an Individual mode you can personalize.
A network of LEDs let you create cabin ambience to suit your mood. Edge-lighting glows along the dash, console and door trim, and in the footwells. Along with 64 selectable colors and day/night brightness modes, numerous programs let you enjoy static or slowly changing multicolor motifs. Lighting in key locations can also welcome you into the cabin, confirm your climate-control adjustments and voice control interaction, or visually augment alerts from key driver-assistance systems.
Mercedes-Maybach logos illuminate in a soft white glow as you open any door, to welcome you into the cabin or ease your exit.
A leap in ease and efficiency pioneered by Mercedes-Benz, KEYLESS-GO® lets you unlock, start and drive away without removing the SmartKey from your pocket or purse. You can lock and unlock the doors with a touch of the exterior handles. Seamless door handles retract flush with the bodywork, yet can extend to greet your hand as you approach. The handles can automatically deploy in special situations, such as after an accident.
Intuitive, and artfully sculpted, seat-shaped controls help you and your front passenger find your ideal seating positions with 12-way power adjustment, including cushion length. A memory system for each front seat recalls three stored seat positions with the touch of a button. The driver-seat memory also includes the power steering column and side mirror positions. Standard heating with automatic timed step-down adds soothing, controlled comfort in cool weather.
The Remote Start feature lets you start your car's engine from the Mercedes me Mobile App on your smartphone. In extreme weather, it's a great way to pre-condition the cabin comfort by giving the climate control up to a 10-minute head-start on your arrival. It's included with your Mercedes me connect services.
The Air Balance system teams activated charcoal filtration with an ionizer that uses an electrical charge to create the same fresh-air sensation you experience after a summer storm. Airborne impurities and odors are virtually eliminated from the cabin to provide air quality that's more enjoyable and healthier, especially for those with asthma or allergies.
Even more convenient than the standard electronic trunk closer, HANDS-FREE ACCESS lets you open or close the trunk with a gentle "kick" of your foot under the rear bumper. It's a convenience you'll really appreciate when you've got an armful of packages.

An advanced system of 15 air bags offers 17-way occupant protection: There are dual two-stage front air bags, a driver’s knee air bag, front and outboard rear side-impact air bags, and side curtain air bags for both seating rows. In addition, each outboard rear seat is provided with an innovative frontal air bag, Beltbag® and Cushionbag®.
With technology to monitor ordinary road markings above a certain driving speed, Active Lane Keeping Assist can help detect unintended drifting off-course, and alert you by vibrating the steering wheel. If you continue to drift, it can selectively brake individual wheels to help guide the car back. Enhancements help it alert you to overtaking vehicles, vehicles you'd need to overtake if you change lanes, and even traffic in the adjacent lane or along the road edge for safer evasive moves.
Using the ultrasonic sensors of Active Parking Assist and multiple cameras, this system can help audibly and visually alert the driver to approaching cross-traffic or pedestrians when backing out of a parking space at low speed. Especially helpful if your view is obstructed by vehicles or structures, the system can also apply the brakes. The sensors can also help detect if the driver has engaged the wrong gear or pedal for exiting a confined space.
A Mercedes-Benz innovation, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® uses radar-based technology to adapt your cruise control speed in response to the flow of traffic. If the vehicle ahead slows to a stop, it can brake to a full halt. When traffic moves, you can resume with just a tap of the accelerator or resume button, or it can proceed automatically if the stop is under 60 seconds. Enhancements help it respond proactively to posted speed limits, and let you choose varying system dynamics via MBUX.
