Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 India launch next week

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 will compete with the Rolls Royce Cullinan and Bentley Bentayga.

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that the Maybach GLS 600 luxury SUV will be launched in the Indian market next week.

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is the top-of-the-range luxury model of the GLS range. It gets a distinct exterior featuring the Maybach grille at the front and stylish 23-inch chrome wheels. More shiny bits on the front and rear bumpers and around the windows distinguish it from the standard GLS.

The Maybach GLS 600 comes in 4 and 5-seat configurations. The 4-seater version gets captain seats that have reclining and massage functions. The centre console houses a refrigerator to store champagne bottles. Other features include dual 12.3-inch screens, a panoramic sunroof and an optional AIR-BALANCE package.

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 engine producing 550 BHP and 730 Nm and is paired to a 9-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system. The car comes with a 48V mild-hybrid system that provides a boost of 21 BHP and 250 Nm.

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 will compete with the likes of the Rolls Royce Cullinan, Bentley Bentayga and the Range Rover Autobiography in the Indian market.
