Mercede's flagship all-electric SUV has actually been offered the Maybach treatment, and it has competitors like the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Bentley Bentayga in its sights! But is it the essential glamorous SUV? Let's take a closer look.
Starting with the style, there are a number of upgrades over the standard car to guarantee you do not blend the Maybach with the routine EQS SUV. There's a substantial chrome grille up front, combined with chrome trim around the sides and across the rear bumper. There are a number of Maybach badges to be discovered across the vehicle, too, consisting of a load of miniature badges covering the phony air vents in advance.
However naturally, the major updates are on the within! Choose the First Class upgrade, and you'll discover 2 different lounge seats in the rear of the automobile. These featured a load of convenience features, from multiple massage choices to the capability to retract the seats to be practically flat. In terms of technology, you'll also find 12" touchscreens mounted to the back of the front seats, quick charging for your smart device and HDMI ports that link to the screens. There's also a fridge, insulated cup holders and even a pair of champagne flutes!
It's not just the technology and comfort that are impressive. The Maybach EQS SUV is powered by double motors that can deliver 660hp and 950Nm of torque – that's 114hp more than the top-of-the-range Mercedes EQS SUV! The Maybach EQS SUV can also strike 60mph in just 4.4 seconds.
So it sounds excellent, however all of this luxury will not come inexpensive! We do not have an exact cost yet, but given the rate of the regular Maybach EQS, you can anticipate the SUV variation to come with a cost of around ₤ 200,000 – and that'll be prior to you include optional additionals!
However will it deserve it? Or is the Rolls-Royce Cullinan the must-have luxury SUV? Stick to Mat and see on your own!
