2023 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Starting at $194,450 Highlights Hedonistic luxury, smooth-running turbocharged engines, unmatched ride quality. Low Understated styling isn’t as flashy as rivals, high-priced, gas-guzzling powertrains. Verdict Designed to please passengers in every possible way, the ultimate S-Class is a rolling niche of uncompromising comfort. What’s new for 2023? Little has changed for the 2023 S-Class, but Mercedes-Maybach will produce a limited-edition S680 by Virgil Abloh in tribute to the late fashion designer. It has collaborated with Mercedes-Maybach on concept vehicles in the past, but this production model – which will be limited to just 150 examples – is street-ready. The black and brown color scheme pays homage to the Project Maybach concept car with cool monobloc wheels presented in the same brown color. The two-tone theme continues in the car’s luxurious interior. Pricing and Who to Buy S580 4Matic: $194,450 S680 4Matic: $230,050 S680 by Virgil Abloh: $250,000 (estimated) If you’re going for a Maybach version of the S-Class, you can get the S680 and its powerful V-12 engine. Standard features, of course, are plentiful and include luxury items like soft-close doors, air suspension, a 30-speaker Burmester stereo and a rear-seat entertainment system with two 11.6-inch touchscreens, and much, much more. Engine, Transmission and Performance Under the hood of every S580 sedan is a 496-hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine. which is boosted by a 48-volt hybrid system. Going with the S680, you swap a 621-hp 6.0-liter V-12. All models will come with Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel drive system. The V-8 makes 33 more horsepower than the old 2020 S560, and it’s plenty powerful. During our tests, the S580 shot to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds. But that’s not really the most impressive thing about the Maybach S-class. During our time with the car, we were impressed with the ride quality and near-silent cabin – registering an extremely low 64 decibels inside the car while traveling at 70mph. The V-12’s output is the same as the 2020 S650 model, and it doesn’t benefit from a 48-volt hybrid system, but we haven’t had a chance to test the new one yet.
