Luxury limousines brand Maybach laid off in, the year.
Concern Daimler suffered huge losses exceeded one billion dollars, and its cars have not been able to compete with the elite models from Bentley and the Rolls-Royce .
However, forgetting Maybach was short-lived, he was not allowed to die, and he revived.
However, this time in a slightly different form.
And at the very end of, in Russian dealerships 2018-2019 Mercedes company started receiving orders for a new luxury limousine called the 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach.
Almost simultaneously, the car was presented at two auto shows – in Guangzhou, China and the US, Los Angeles.
Visually afar German novelty is virtually no different from the usual elongated sedan version the S-the Class , on the basis of which the car is built.
Although near the differences become apparent.

The distance between the axes of the new items and more – 336.5 centimeters.
And, thirdly, despite the similar appearance of the two cars, the body 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach in 2016 was slightly retouched shape, making it possible to improve its aerodynamic performance.
For example, the aerodynamic drag coefficient of a limousine is just Cx of 0.26, which is a very respectable figure, sports car is not inferior to the BMW the i8 .
However, the main attraction of the 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach – is undoubtedly its interior with four-seater layout.
In front of the cabin is almost no different from the standard “C-class”, but the rear end is completely different.
It offers the highest comfort for the two passengers.

For example, the communication device from the front seat passenger, which allows not to raise his voice, built-in miniature bar, where there are two glasses, hand-made, small pull-out tables console business and so on.
However, luxury equipment – is just one of the advantages of a sedan 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach. Another plus in the treasury stock of the new items is free space in the back row of seats, and it, in comparison with a conventional “C-class”, it has become much more .
