Mercedes is positioning the Maybach S-Class as a sedan to be driven in. The emphasis on rear-seat comfort is aimed squarely at well-heeled buyers in China who look to longer wheelbase models for their chauffeured needs.
The Maybach’s wheelbase is seven inches longer than that of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, with the additional space geared toward the rear cabin. New comfort features, such as a calf-rest massage function and neck and shoulder heating, add to the passenger experience.
