The highlights of the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is particularly suitable for chauffeured driving. A wheelbase that is 18 cm longer than that of the long variant of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is entirely to the benefit of the rear compartment. The focus is on the rear area. This is underlined by even more refined appointments. The massage function of the calf rests on the Executive seats is a new feature. The First-Class Rear has been extensively upgraded. Another comfort feature is neck/shoulder heating in the rear.
On request, the exclusive appearance of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class can be enhanced by a two-tone paint finish with dividing line. This is applied by hand according to the highest quality criteria. Distinguishing features at the front include the distinctive bonnet with a chromed fin and the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille with fine, vertical chrome pinstripes. The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class also differs from its sister models when viewed from the side: it features a fixed quarterlight in the C-pillar. Exclusivity is emphasised by the Maybach brand logo on the C-pillar.
On request, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class can be equipped with electrically operated comfort rear doors. With this feature, the doors open and close with no effort at all. Its integration into the infotainment and control system MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) and Active Blind Spot Assist ensures ease of use and additional safety. The rear doors can also be operated from the driver's seat – an important function when chauffeur-driven. In combination with the MBUX Interior Assistant in the rear, the comfort doors can be closed by a gesture of the hand, and stopped by extending an arm.
DIGITAL LIGHT technology had its world debut in small-series production of the preceding model, but is now in full series production with the new S-Class generation. This revolutionary headlamp technology (optional equipment) allows completely new functions, e.g. the projection of marking aids or warning symbols onto the road ahead. DIGITAL LIGHT has a light module with three extremely powerful LEDs in each headlamp, whose light is refracted and directed by 1.3 million micro-mirrors. The resolution is therefore more than 2.6 million pixels per vehicle.
The interior of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is based on the completely new interior design of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The large areas of trim on the front seats are a new feature in the Mercedes- Maybach. High-quality wood surrounds encase the rear of the front seat backrests, giving the impression of generous lounge seats. If the First-Class Rear is specified, a similarly striking area of trim is positioned between the two rear passengers.
With active road noise compensation, the interior of the already very quiet Mercedes-Maybach S-Class becomes even more hushed. In a similar way to headphones with noise suppression, the system reduces unwanted low-frequency noises using counter-phased sound waves. The sound is emitted via the bass speakers of the Burmester® high-end 4D surround sound system.
Mercedes-Benz's coupé and cabriolet customers have long appreciated the automatic seat belt extender. Rear passengers in the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class are now the first to benefit from this convenience in the rear of a saloon. The seat belt extender is an indirect invitation to fasten the belt, and also makes the process much easier. It is no longer necessary to move from an adopted, comfortable seating position to fasten the belt. The seat belt extender is integrated into the adjustable backrest of the Executive seat, and therefore always in the right position for the passenger.
Adaptive rear lighting is celebrating its premiere in the Mercedes-Maybach. This follows the wishes of the occupants in several respects: as well as the brightness, the size and position of the light spot can be adjusted, while the light colour (warm/cold) can also be selected. There is also a wide adjustment range between precise working light and relaxing lounge light.
The second generation of MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience), the intelligent infotainment and operating system first introduced in 2018, now makes its debut in the new S-Class. The unique feature of MBUX is its networking with a wide range of vehicle systems and sensor data. Brilliant displays on up to five large screens, in part with OLED technology, make it even easier to control vehicle and comfort functions. On request, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class can also be equipped with MBUX Interior Assist Rear.
During severe frontal collisions, the rear airbag included as standard can considerably reduce the loads acting on the heads and necks of seat belt wearing occupants on the outer rear seats. The frontal airbag for the rear seat deploys particularly gently thanks to its innovative construction using a tubular structure.
Thanks to rear-axle steering (optional equipment), the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is easy to manoeuvre, even in dense city traffic. The steering angle at the rear axle is up to ten degrees. It reduces the turning circle of the S-Class by up to two metres.
Exceptional ride comfort and agility, as well as innovative functions such as the raising of the vehicle body in the event of a side impact, are provided by the E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL active suspension, which is combined here with the standard AIRMATIC air suspension. It is able to control the spring and damper forces at each wheel individually. Together with ROAD SURFACE SCAN and the curve inclination function CURVE, E- ACTIVE BODY CONTROL makes for an extraordinary level of comfort.
It is expected that initially in Germany and from the second half of 2021, the Mercedes-Maybach will be able to drive in conditionally automated mode with the new DRIVE PILOT (optional equipment) in situations where traffic density is high or in tailbacks on suitable motorway sections. This takes the pressure off the driver, allowing them to do other things such as web browsing or attending to emails in the In-Car Office - a more effective use of time.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class (length/width/height: 5469/1921/1510 millimetres) is a classic three-box saloon. Distinguishing features at the front include the distinctive bonnet with a chromed fin and the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille. This is highly recognisable by its vertical, three-dimensional trim strips. The word mark MAYBACH is elegantly integrated into the chrome surround of the grille. it features a fixed quarterlight in the C-pillar. Exclusivity is emphasised by the Maybach brand logo on the C-pillar. On request, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class can be equipped with electrically operated comfort rear doors.
The exclusive appearance of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class can be enhanced by a two-tone paint finish with a dividing line which is applied by hand to the highest quality standards. This is available as optional equipment, as is the DIGITAL LIGHT headlamp technology. This allows new functions, e.g. the projection of guidelines or warning symbols onto the road ahead. DIGITAL LIGHT has a light module with three extremely powerful LEDs in each headlamp, whose light is refracted and directed by 1.3 million micro-mirrors.
The interior: generous space and supreme comfort in the rear
The interior of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is based on the completely new interior design of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The dashboard, centre console and armrests form a single sculptural unit that appears to float above an expansive interior landscape.
Up to five display screens are available. Included as standard is a 12.8-inch OLED central display as a high- tech control centre. A 12.3-inch 3D driver display with three-dimensional representation of other road users and pronounced depth and shade effects is available on request.
The distinctive look of the driver display in Exclusive display mode underlines the special status of the Mercedes-Maybach. The surrounds of the dial instruments are in the brand colour rosé gold.
This colour is also used for the active ambient lighting (optional equipment), i.e. the animated LED light band with intelligent comfort and safety functions. With rosé gold white and amethyst glow, the active ambient lighting now has two new colour themes. The "Welcome Rear" entry display welcomes passengers with a
special light show. Adaptive rear lighting is celebrating its premiere in the Mercedes-Maybach. This follows the wishes of the occupants in several respects: as well as the brightness, the size and position of the light spot can be adjusted, while the light colour (warm/cold) can also be selected. There is also a wide adjustment range between precise working light and relaxing lounge light.
There is plenty of classic luxury on board, too: new features include the large areas of trim on the front seats; and high-quality wood surrounds encase the rear of the front seat backrests. If the First-Class Rear is specified, a similarly striking area of trim is positioned between the two rear passengers.
A wheelbase that is 18 cm longer than that of the long variant of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is entirely to the benefit of the rear compartment.

World premiere of the all-new Toyota Land Cruiser (300 Series)
New model builds on Land Cruiser’s 70-year heritage and more than 10 million worldwide sales
Latest version of the Toyota that will “go anywhere and everywhere, and bring you back safe and well”
Reinforcing the Land Cruiser’s essence of “reliability, durability, and off-road performance’s
Completely new vehicle – new GA-F platform, new twin-turbo V6 engines, new 10-speed automatic transmission, new suspension system and new exterior and interior design
First new SW (station wagon) Land Cruiser since 200 Series’ introduction in 2007
New model to be introduced from summer 2021
The Toyota Land Cruiser’s status as an automotive legend is indisputable, with its heritage of achievement now spanning 70 years and more than 10 million sales across 170 countries and regions. Toyota’s proud claim is that Land Cruiser is a vehicle that will “go anywhere and everywhere, and bring you back safe and well.”
Today Toyota reveals an all-new Land Cruiser, presented in an online world premiere hosted in Dubai. The Land Cruiser (300 Series) is the first new Land Cruiser SW (station wagon) model since the release of the LC 200 in 2007 and takes its place as the new flagship of the SUV range. The changes it brings are unprecedented.
With new Land Cruiser 300, Toyota is further reinforcing its credentials for Quality, Durability and Reliability (QDR) together with improved off-road performance and on-road capability, to ensure drivers are at ease with any route they take.
The engines, transmission and platform are all brand-new and engineered to deliver a leap forward in performance both on-road and in the toughest off-road environments. Innovations and improvements – including world-first technologies – have been delivered without compromising any aspect of Land Cruiser’s ability, targeting performance that people can trust to carry them safely and securely, on and off-road.
With this objective in mind, Toyota has made first use of a new TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform, the first to be designed for a body-on-frame vehicle. The GA-F platform preserves exceptional off-road capability while bringing new benefits in terms of body rigidity, strength and dynamic balance and helping deliver improved on-road performance as well. It provides the basis for introducing new technologies, reducing weight, lowering the vehicle’s centre of gravity, improving safety and enabling new designs for the exterior and interior.
The frame itself was redesigned to save weight and improve its rigidity; overall the new Land Cruiser is 200 kg lighter than its predecessor. New suspension systems have also been introduced, while performance was tested to the limit by master drivers and drivers with experience of the gruelling Dakar Rally. The aim was to create an SUV that is not just highly capable, but is also easy for the driver to control, on and off-road.
Focus areas included tuning suspension performance to achieve optimum wheel articulation, keeping the tyres in contact with the ground on rough terrain, and improving road-holding with a world-first Electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (E-KDSS). The new Land Cruiser 300 is also the first Toyota to adopt a Multi-Terrain Monitor, which gives the driver a real-time view of the road surface beneath and immediately surrounding the vehicle and the position of the wheels. The Multi-Terrain Select system automatically judges the quality of the driving surface and adopts the most appropriate driving mode.
The advances in driving dynamics and handling are supported by new V6 twin-turbo engines – 3.5-litre petrol and 3.3-litre diesel – engineered for class-leading performance and driveability superior to a conventional V8. Both are available with a new 10-speed automatic transmission, a unit that contributes to a reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of around 10% compared to the current generation model.
The advances in engineering are matched by a new design that is faithful to the model’s heritage and status, while expressing a new concept of “functional beauty.” The Land Cruiser’s powerful, clean lines communicate the SUV’s great strength, together with greater sophistication and maturity. Inside, the cabin projects a higher level of sensory appeal in a space where the driver and passenger can feel comfortable and safe, regardless of how tough the driving environment is.
With the ability to place the vehicle precisely when driving off-road being a priority, the new Land Cruiser 300 preserves the dimensions of the current SW model, including overall length and width, the wheelbase and the departure and approach angles.
There are significant advances in safety, from the inherent robustness of the vehicle’s construction and its sophisticated systems for secure driving in challenging conditions, to additional and upgraded active safety and driver assistance systems provided by second generation Toyota Safety Sense. The ability of the Pre-Collision System to help avoid an accident has been increased so it is now able to detect pedestrians (day and night-time) and bicycle riders (daytime) in the car’s path. When turning at junctions, PCS can also recognise potential collision hazards with both oncoming traffic and pedestrians crossing the road into which the vehicle is heading. The new Land Cruiser 300 adopts a new Parking Support Brake, which recognises obstacles in front and behind the car when moving slowly in a car park and approaching vehicles and pedestrians when reversing out of a parking space.
Toyota will launch the new Land Cruiser from summer 2021.
We proud to announce that we'll offer soon to our customers a different armored versions of the all-new Toyota Land Cruiser 300 in CEN B4,B6 and B7 according to DIN EN 1052/1053 (FB) and 1063 (BR) and VR7 according to VPAM BRV2009 and ERV2010 directices in the second half of 2021.
World premier of the all-new Mercedes-Benz S680 V223 4Matic Guard in VR10 level protection
Mercedes-Benz GUARD: special protection version of the new S-Class V223, for the first time with all-wheel drive: Unique integrated concept meets highest protection level for civilian vehicles
"For what really counts": heads of state and business leaders can take this S-Class slogan literally when they entrust their lives to the new special protection version of the luxury model. For, with protection class VPAM VR10, the new S 680 GUARD 4MATIC (combined fuel consumption (WLTP): 19.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions (WLTP): 442 g/km)1 meets the highest ballistic test level for civilian vehicles and, moreover, is particularly resistant to explosive charges. The certification by Beschussamt Ulm (ballistic testing authority) was carried out for the first time using so-called biofidelic dummies. With bone and soft tissue-like constructions, these test dummies imitate the human body particularly realistically. The S 680 GUARD 4MATIC is the first GUARD saloon from Mercedes-Benz with all-wheel drive and is powered by the familiar V12 (M279) with 450 kW/612 hp. The basic price is € 457,1002 plus value added tax. The S 680 GUARD 4MATIC will celebrate its world premiere at the IAA in Munich.
"The S 680 GUARD 4MATIC is one of the most customer-oriented products from Mercedes-Benz. That is because this special protection model focuses on people and their safety," says Dirk Fetzer, Head of Product Management S-Class. "No other series-produced saloon fulfils the highest protection class for civilian vehicles quite as comprehensively. And at the same time quality and durability are at series standard, thanks to extensive development and testing activities. The new special protection version 'protects what matters'."
Mercedes-Benz has been building special protection vehicles since 1928 and thus for over 90 years. Customers of the new S 680 GUARD 4MATIC benefit from these many years of experience. The integrated protection system (iSS) reaches a new level: whereas the necessary protective materials were previously integrated into the standard bodyshell structure for the GUARD saloons, a GUARD-specific bodyshell of protective elements has now been developed. This self-supporting protective cell represents the core of the iSS. Ultimately, the (aluminium) outer skin serves as a design shell and ensures an inconspicuous appearance. In addition to the armouring, the iSS includes the adaptation of the suspension, engine and transmission to ensure handling that is virtually on a par with that of the series vehicle. Due to a parallel development process alongside the large-scale production models, the longevity of the GUARD vehicles also reaches series production level.
In addition to the unseen armouring elements, the transparent area of the windows is an integral and essential part of the protection concept. The material and thickness of the multi-layer glass 'sandwich' meet the high requirements of the VR10 safety classification. The inner surfaces of the glass are coated with polycarbonate for splinter protection. Despite their comprehensive protective effect, they offer excellent visibility. And they have been integrated in such a way that they are not noticeable at first glance - another significant advantage of the integrated protection system.
The interior space also benefits from the elaborate iSS concept, as the comfort dimensions largely correspond to those of the long S-Class. As with the production model, it was possible to keep the joins in the bodyshell to a minimum, so fulfilling the "Seamless" claim of the Sensual Purity design philosophy. And when it comes to comfort and appointments, the four- and five-seater versions can both hold their own with their sister models: more than 80 individualisation options are available for the S-Class, from active ambient lighting and a media display featuring OLED technology through to a First-Class rear suite and rear airbag. There are almost no restrictions on trim parts and colour combinations. However, optional extras that contradict the protective purpose, such as a sliding sunroof, are not available.
Certified: highest civilian protection class in terms of ballistics and first use of biofidelic dummies in blast tests
The new S 680 GUARD 4MATIC is certified according to directives of the VPAM3 (Association of test centres for attack-resistant materials and structures). Members of the VPAM are company-independent (neutral) inspection bodies and institutions.
The testing was carried out by the Beschussamt Ulm, the only testing and certification body for weapons, ammunition and safety technology in the German state of Baden-Württemberg and one of the most state-of-the-art institutes of its kind. The new S-Class GUARD meets the requirements of the highest civilian protection class VR10 according to the standard VPAM BRV version three (Bullet Resistant Vehicles). In this test the body and windows must withstand fire from an assault rifle using armour-piercing ammunition. The S 680 GUARD 4MATIC also meets the requirements of Germany's Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA).
Protection against blast attacks is documented by compliance with the latest version of the VPAM ERV(Explosive Resistant Vehicles) standard, the test criteria for which are not freely available. The S 680 GUARD 4MATIC was not only the very first vehicle to complete the current tests, it also achieved the top scores in all three tests (roof, floor and side) with three out of three stars. Test result: "no damage" to dummies and indicators according to assessment scheme VPAM ERV.
For the first time, the VPAM ERV certification in this case included tests with so-called biofidelic dummies. Consideration was given to the damage to the dummies on all seats, which differ in design (depending on the test case). The Primus model used was developed by the company CTS together with the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin) and the Dresden University of Applied Sciences (HTW Dresden), incorporating findings from the Berlin Charité research-based teaching hospital. Primus is particularly well suited for this special use: bone density and structure are modelled on the human skeleton in every detail. Epoxy resin aluminium powder is used as a bone substitute, and webbing made of propylene is used as ligaments and tendons. The tissue and internal organs of this biofidelic dummy are made of silicone and acrylic. Thanks to the human-like structure, injuries are easily recognisable from the outside. The evaluation was based on the most severely affected dummy or seat.
Other technical refinements: new door actuators and hydraulically operated window lifters
The highest level of protection combined with the best possible comfort for passengers and staff, that is the GUARD philosophy. This can be illustrated with two examples. The S 680 GUARD 4MATIC, for example, features newly developed door actuators. Although the doors are very heavy due to their armouring, this electro-mechanical system means that only low operating forces are required when opening and closing. This applies not only on level ground, but also when the vehicle is on a slope. The stepless door arrest also proves its worth in this situation. The door's sensor technology detects when and how it is to be moved or stopped. Algorithms from human-supporting robotics (cobots) are used. The system facilitates the work of the bodyguards in particular, and at the same time they can keep one hand free.
There is also a lot of intelligence in the hydraulically (instead of electrically) operated window lifters. Even if the on-board power supply fails, emergency operation is possible, i.e. closing in the event of an attempted attack. In each door there is a corresponding unit consisting of a compressor and valve block together with a pressure accumulator.
Other special equipment designed specifically for the S 680 GUARD 4MATIC includes a fire extinguishing system with automatic triggering function and an emergency fresh air system that protects occupants from penetrating smoke or irritant gases and supplies them with fresh air. Other special GUARD options include an extensive range of equipment for official authorities, such as a siren, flashing lights and radios, as well as a panic alarm system.
The Michelin PAX run-flat tyres are a standard feature. Even with defective tyres, it is possible to move out of the danger zone up to a distance of 30 kilometres.
Powertrain: first GUARD saloon with 4MATIC
The V12 biturbo power unit has been extensively revised for its use in the new S-Class generation. The exhaust gas turbochargers, exhaust manifold and air ducting were all adapted. Also new is a closed-loop petrol-engine particulate filter. The V12 has an output of 450 kW/612 hp and a displacement of 5980 cc. The maximum torque is 830 Nm from 2000 rpm. The most important features of the engine include an all-aluminium crankcase, a one-piece chain drive, a forged crankshaft made of high-quality quenched and tempered steel, forged pistons and a multi-spark ignition system with twelve double ignition coils.
Features of the all-wheel-drive system, combined here for the first time with the twelve-cylinder engine, include a low system weight, optimum traction and driving safety, and the highest levels of ride comfort and driving dynamics. The standard torque distribution for this model is 31 percent to the front axle and 69 percent to the rear axle. Among other things, the all-wheel drive was adapted to the higher vehicle weight of the GUARD version with stronger side shafts.
The S-Class GUARD can still cover up to 30 kilometres after a puncture thanks to Michelin PAX run-flat tyres.
The S 680 GUARD 4MATIC is available in four- and five-seater versions. The basic price is € 457,1002 plus value added tax.
Mercedes-Benz has been building special protection vehicles for 93 years. The first model was the Nürburg 460.
For weight reasons, the top speed is electronically limited to 190 km/h.
After the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with short and long wheelbase and the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the GUARD is already the fourth body variant of the new generation.
