Mercedes-Benz officially launched the Maybach GLS600 in India last week. During the launch event, Mercedes-Benz announced that all the 50 cars allotted to the Indian market are pre-booked and are already sold. The base variant of the Maybach GLS600 is priced at Rs 2.43 crore (ex-showroom, India). It is the first Maybach SUV to go on sale in the international markets and in India.
Based on the standard GLS, the Maybach version offers much more and is extremely luxurious. The dashboard of the Maybach GLS gets premium Nappa leather and there are unique trim inserts making it feel plush.
There are twin 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment system. The rear seats of the Maybach GLS get the most updates over the standard version. Maybach will offer both four and five-seat version of the GLS600 in India.
Since most GLS600 customers will be driven by a chauffeur, the rear seats are electronically controlled and there are calf rests too. The four-seater version also gets electrically adjustable seats. Mercedes-Benz claims that the sound insulation has improved compared to the standard version of the SUV.
On the outside, it gets the standard Maybach design including a massive grille that is dipped in chrome. There are a few other changes in the vehicle. The SUV gets chrome inserts on the B-Pillar and Maybach logo on the D-pillar too.
