Mercedes-Maybach GLS Exterior
The Maybach GLS front features adaptive LED headlights, the Maybach radiator grille with vertical pinstripe chrome struts and lower chrome mesh-covered intakes. There is a chrome bumper protector under the intakes, which highlights the vehicle’s refined SUV character. There are two doors on either side of the car with chrome door trim emphasizing the A-pillar and a Maybach badge adorning the D-pillar.
The illuminated power side steps have an anodized Aluminum finish and rubber anti-slip strips. The rear also has matching metal detailing, a finishing strip at the hands-free tailgate base, and an improved standard Mercedes GLS’s metal bumper trim. There is a panoramic sunroof, and the rear windows have a privacy glass tint by default.
While you can order Maybach GLS in 11 single colors, Mercedes will also offer a factory two-tone finish option with eight color combinations, including:
- Lunar Blue/Iridium Silver
- Iridium Silver/Selenite Grey
- Obsidian Black/Rubellite Red
- Emerald Green/Mojave Silver
- Obsidian Black/Kalahari Gold
- Obsidian Black/Patagonia Red
- Designo Diamond White/ Iridium Silver

The standard GLS air suspension lowers the SUV’s body by an inch to improve access. The car comes with the Mercedes standard 22-inch cast Aluminum wheels with a high-sheen finish. Forged 23-inch alloy wheels are optional.
Mercedes-Maybach GLS Interior
You will find the interior design and build quality as luxurious as a six-star hotel room or a fancy first-class airline cabin. It features a spacious and sophisticated cabin with a four-zone executive climate system and Nappa leather trim on its seats, dashboard, and door panels. It is enhanced by 64-colour ambient lighting and real wood trim with a handsome pinstripe. Keyless entry and push-button start are standard features.
There are two rows of ventilated seats, both of which have heat and massage functions, and heated front and rear armrests. The two power-adjustable recliner rear seats offer abundant legroom. There are extending, folding tables and a refrigerator with room for champagne bottles and a custom silver champagne flutes set.
The Maybach GLS boasts the latest tech, including a dual 12.3-inch infotainment display using Mercedes’s latest MBUX software interface. There are two 11.6-inch screens for the rear-seat passengers that can control the sound system or play movies. The Burmester High-End 3D surround sound system has a total output of 1,590 watts. It boasts 27 high-performance speakers and 27 individual amplifier channels. Ceiling-mounted surround speakers and LED-illuminated tweeters enable the system to deliver cinema-quality audio.
The Mercedes Driver Assistance package comes with many features: head-up display, route-based speed adjustment, attention assist, traffic sign assist, active steering assist, lane change and lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, and many more. After a long day of being filthy rich, you can relax in a sensory sanctuary created by the fragrance diffuser.
Handling and Driving Impressions
The Maybach GLS is an all-wheel-drive SUV with excellent performance. However, it is not designed for family adventures such as camping expeditions in the desert or the Mountains. This extremely comfortable luxury SUV is meant to pamper you and three companions within the city and on long-distance trips.
Its air suspension smooths out most imperfections on the road, making it one of the most enjoyable cars you can drive. Wait until you rent a Mercedes GLS Maybach in Dubai and try Maybach drive mode if you thought it couldn’t be any smoother.
The ultra-luxurious driving mode is part of Mercedes’ clever E-Active Body Control technology, which uses camera and radar data to adjust each spring in advance of bumps and road irregularities. These modifications are made in a fraction of a second, thanks to its 48-volt electric system.
The ECU softens the throttle response, mutes the exhaust note, and softens the gear shifts and suspension. It’s principally concerned with ensuring that all rear-seat passengers’ body motions are as minimal as possible. The CURVE drive mode causes the GLS to lean into 3-degree bends to lessen lateral forces. Very few SUVs can match it in this mode.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The Maybach GLS is powered by the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 AMG M177 engine generating 558 horsepower (HP) and 538 lb-ft. It is paired with an EQ Boost function, which adds up to 22 HP and 184 lb-ft for short periods. The powertrain has the standard Mercedes’ 4MATIC variable all-wheel-drive system with 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.
Even with a curb weight of 6140 lb, this SUV can dash from 0 to 62-mph in 4.9 seconds and from 0 to 100 mph in 9.4 seconds. It is electronically limited to a top speed of 130 mph. The Maybach GLS also features selective cylinder deactivation, which means it can move with only four cylinders under moderate loads between 800 and 3200 rpm to enhance fuel economy.
You will enjoy the car most when driving at highway speeds when it is most at ease; it will easily pass by unsuspecting family sedans. The SUV’s EPA fuel economy ratings are 15 mpg city and 19 mpg highway driving. A 23.8-gallon fuel tank gives the car an estimated range of 381 miles.
The Maybach GLS is a high-dollar luxury SUV with a handsome, flashy exterior and super luxurious interior loaded with fancy features, including the latest tech. It makes most things standard, including Nappa leather upholstery, a semi-autonomous driving mode, and handsome exterior and interior trimmings.
You can rent a Mercedes GLS Maybach in Dubai. However, if you have a large family, don’t bring everybody with you. The Maybach GLS can only accommodate four passengers. Feel free to bring your diamond-encrusted Patek Philippe wristwatch, jeweled tiara, and a couple of Dom Pérignon bottles to chill in the wine fridge.
