Why Is This Mercedes-Benz S-Class Worth Over $200k

Mercedes-Benz as a car manufacturer is known for its luxury sedans and coupes, its sporty AMG cars, and its racing heritage. There is one name you’ve probably heard in reference to the highest models of luxury Mercedes-Benz has to offer, and its the Maybach. The 2020 Maybach Sedan, or rather the 2020 Maybach S 560 4MATIC, is the closest you can get to driving a miniature limousine every single day, and some owners even opt for their own personal driver so they can kick back and enjoy their almost $200k Mercedes-Benz Maybach.

Where luxury meets speeds

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach is the ultimate luxury sedan, but owners who chose to sit behind the wheel know that this car doesn’t sacrifice a great driving experience.

Under the long, modest hood of this sedan is a 4.0L V8 engine that produces a rather surprising 463hp, that’s more than some brand new sportscars. The engine pairs to a 9-speed automatic transmission with the AMG speedshift control for a smooth and effortless driving experience. The power produced is delivered to all four wheels, making it easy and enjoyable to handle in any weather or road condition.

The list of features that comes standard is impeccable, as you might expect from a car at this price point. If you’re not happy with the base options, of course, you can always order a Maybach customized to your personal taste. Some premium paint colors alone can be ordered for an added price, as much as $12,000 for the Selenite Gray Metallic.

The S-Class Maybach is ultra-luxury

When Consumer Reports tested the S-Class Maybach, their team raved about the car’s comfortable ride and driving experience. Customer reviews and owners have chimed in too, and the consensus is clear – the S-Class Maybach is the ultimate luxury sedan.

For such a heavy car that is designed to be luxury-first, the S-Class Maybach has reportedly excellent handling. Many owners have boasted about the cars surprisingly good turning radius, and it has the ability to navigate through traffic comfortably. The car is optimally insulated to cancel out almost all road noise, and the suspension is stiff enough to make driving the Maybach fun but soft enough to pass over even the roughest of streets unscathed.

The interior of the Maybach is unlike anything you’ve seen before. Somehow combining simple lines with exquisite detail, everything from the dashboard to the backseat is thoughtfully designed.

Many people recognize the S Class as one of the highest luxury sedans you can get from Mercedes-Benz, but the Maybach improves upon it in every way. It isn’t just luxury, it’s ultra-luxury, and it definitely doesn’t come cheap.
