Is Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV the Most Comfortable Vehicle Ever?

What is the most prestigious car you can get worldwide? Of course, a Maybach. Neither Rolls-Royce nor Bentley can achieve this level of prestige. Maybach has a presence in every country in the world. The Maybach models, chosen by the wealthy or politicians, strengthen the prestige perception with a wide range of personalization options, comfort, safety, and technology, making Maybach the world’s best-selling ultra-luxury brand. While you can get factory-armored Maybach models, Maybach does not offer as much customization as its English competitors. Nevertheless, Maybach has always been at the forefront of the class with its more advanced vehicles. So why is the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV so important?

We are now in the era of electric vehicles, and, in fact, electric cars emerge without many issues present in internal combustion engine vehicles. Fossil fuel engines in internal combustion vehicles generate high vibrations and noise while operating. These systems, with many moving parts, require frequent maintenance, leading to high maintenance costs. These vibrating engines are not directly connected to the chassis; instead, the vibrations are attempted to be dampened through engine mounts, for example. In luxury vehicles like Maybach, liquid-based dampers assisting adaptive damping are used. To reduce irregularities in the engine, structures such as counterweights and flywheels are employed. Insulation is also implemented in vehicles to overcome noise. In ultra-luxury cars, minimizing these noises and vibrations is crucial. Electric vehicles, on the other hand, have almost nonexistent vibrations and noise due to the linear operation of the electric motor. The electric motor, operating more smoothly, has fewer parts compared to internal combustion engines. Electric motors, being more trouble-free, also take up less space and transfer power to the wheels instantly and without delay. To create comfortable and prestigious vehicles, less work is required in electric cars. There are no heavy components like internal combustion engines and their associated parts, such as transmission and differential, which reduce comfort. Except for the motor directly connected to the wheels, there are very few moving parts.

Maybach, always known for being the best, had an easier job developing the EQS SUV since it doesn’t have an internal combustion engine, which reduces noise and vibrations. In addition to the battery pack placed in the floor space, the electric motors located at the front and rear ensure that the drivetrain components do not take up interior space compared to internal combustion Maybach models. This results in a return in terms of interior space. For example, for the first time, there is no driveshaft tunnel between the rear seats of a Maybach model. The low center of gravity due to the battery pack on the floor is also one of the structures that enhances comfort in the EQS SUV. Of course, a Maybach model should have an air suspension. Being both the quietest and least vibrating Maybach model, the EQS SUV represents the brand’s first electric model and the future of the brand.

The model, which is quite different from a regular Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV in terms of design, distinguishes itself with the option for a two-tone color scheme, its faux grille with vertical chrome strips, the Maybach wheel design with small spokes, and the Maybach logos added throughout. Among Mercedes’ electric vehicle designs, the Maybach EQS SUV can be considered the best-looking model to date, becoming even more attractive over time. The only criticism in the exterior design is that the rear windshield wiper is not hidden. Oh, and it would have been fantastic if the hood could open, and the space underneath could be utilized, wouldn’t it, Mercedes?

The combined power of the two electric motors, located at the front and rear, in the Maybach EQS SUV is 649 horsepower, accompanied by an impressive torque value of 950 Nm. The EQS SUV offers a maximum range of 600 kilometers, accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 4.4 seconds, and can reach a maximum speed of 210 kilometers per hour. With its 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system, the model boasts a low turning radius of only 11 meters, thanks to this feature.

Maybach EQS SUV, its interior features the Hyperscreen, and it comes equipped with the latest-generation MBUX interface, allowing users to perform many functions through voice assistant commands. However, there have been complaints about the Hyperscreen’s 3D navigation feature not working seamlessly, and the integration of shortcut keys into the touchscreen has been a common concern raised by users of other Mercedes-Benz models with the Hyperscreen. The fact that all buttons are touch-sensitive can be distracting, as it allows unintended touches while using the central screen. For instance, using the central screen may result in accidentally pressing unwanted buttons on the touchscreen panel in the middle console. The placement of that panel seems to be incorrect. Despite these issues, the model boasts the latest driving technologies, including support for autonomous driving. The luxurious interior, crafted with high-quality materials and precision craftsmanship, is designed for the owner, who is expected to occupy the rear seat.

We are talking about a vehicle with rear seats that are almost like a bed, equipped with heating, cooling, and massage functions, not only in the seat but also in the armrests and seat headrests. The EQS SUV, which provides massages for your calves, also features heated and cooled cup holders, a refrigerator, and screens for controlling various functions in the rear area. Unlike some eccentric approaches seen in competitors like BMW, which includes a touchscreen in the door handle and installs a massive 31-inch television inside the car, Maybach takes a more conservative approach to the interior. With features such as the Burmester 4D sound system, 64-color ambient lighting, and a HEPA-filtered ventilation system, Maybach elevates interior comfort to the highest level. The car achieves a 45-kilogram reduction in salt consumption per vehicle by tanning the leathers used in the interior with coffee bean husks. How do you find the Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV?
