2024 Mercedes-Maybach GLS




The S-Class sedan is already the epitome of luxury, so what happens when you add some Maybach spice? The 2023 Mercedes-Maybach S comes with either a 496-horsepower V8 or a 621-hp V12 engine, with only the highest standard of luxury appointments and finishes. It’s naturally very expensive, and the $193k starting price of the Maybach S puts it in the esteemed company of the Bentley Flying Spur, though the S looks like a comparative steal next to the $340k Rolls-Royce Ghost. Is the Maybach worth $70k more than the equivalent S-Class or is it superfluous? Does the Maybach treatment turn the already posh car into a worthy alternative to a Rolls-Royce or Bentley?
