2021 Mercedes Maybach S Class (overview)

The Mercedes-Benz S-class is a luxury sedan for the well-to-do, which makes the 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-class a luxury sedan for people who are so wealthy that even their chauffeurs are well-to-do. Prepped to do battle against other ultra-luxury cars such as the Bentley Flying Spur and the Rolls-Royce Ghost, the Maybach S-class—dubbed S580—offers a stretched wheelbase, a sumptuously appointed cabin, and an effortlessly powerful twin-turbo V-8 powertrain. It shares its platform with the all-new S-class and offers much of the same infotainment and driver-assistance technologies. But the Maybach’s standard equipment list includes some of the most luxurious furnishings and equipment the brand has ever seen.

Under the hood of every S580 sedan is a 496-hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine which is augmented by a 48-volt hybrid system. All models will come with Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel drive system. The new powertrain makes 33 more horsepower than the old S560 from 2020, but we haven’t had a chance to test its new performance. So far, there’s no mention of a replacement for last year’s Maybach S650, which was powered by a silky-smooth twin-turbo V-12 engine. An air suspension and an active sound cancellation system are both standard in the new model, so we’re expecting a silky, ultra-quiet ride; the S580 also offers rear-wheel steering which should help with navigating this big sedan through tight city streets.

The Maybach S580 has a seven-inch longer wheelbase than the already-large Benz-branded S-class sedan, which provides even more stretch-out space inside its leather-lined cabin. So many luxury features are standard in the S580 we couldn’t possibly list them all here, but all models will come with exquisite leather on virtually every interior surface; a 64-color interior ambient lighting system; heated and ventilated front seats with massage and four-position memory settings; heated rear seats with power adjustments and massage; an air ionizing system with a signature fragrance; and a panoramic sunroof. For buyers who intend to be chauffeured, Maybach can add the optional Executive Rear Seat Plus package, which includes rear-seat folding tables, an extended center console, additional rear-seat wood trim, and temperature-controlled cup holders. Also optional are electrically-operated rear doors, a refrigerator, and Maybach-branded champagne flutes.

2021 Rolls-Royce Phantom (overview)

The 2021 Rolls-Royce Phantom is not just an ultimate status symbol, it’s the Holy Grail of handcrafted luxury automobiles. Its imposing design and decadent furnishings are derived from decades of building opulent motorcars for the world’s wealthiest clients. It utilizes a modern aluminum structure that rides atop an air suspension for euphoric comfort. The Phantom has few true rivals, as even the Mercedes-Maybach S650 and the Bentley Mulsanne fail to deliver the same levels of sybaritic luxury, and the Mercedes sports a price tag that’s $250,000 less. Want to show the world you’ve arrived? You need a Phantom.

Prodigious power is provided by a 563-hp twin-turbo V-12 paired with an eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive. Acceleration is brisk, but Rolls-Royce’s claimed 5.1-second zero-to-60-mph time isn’t anything you’d appreciate your chauffer trying to replicate; the Phantom is better suited for wafting along with smooth, steady inputs to throttle and steering.

An interior tailored for kings can be adorned with a custom-artwork dash. Acres of wood, real metal accents, and vast expanses of supple leather cover nearly every square inch of the cabin. Rolls-Royce offers both a standard- and long-wheelbase version of the Phantom, the latter being 8.6 inches longer, much of which is results as additional rear-seat legroom. Rear-hinged coach doors open to allow graceful ingress and egress to the rear seat where passengers can be treated to a myriad of luxuries such as deep-pile carpeted floor mats, power-adjustable seats with massage, a refrigerated console compartment, and remote controls for the car’s infotainment system.
