Mercedes-Maybach to add large SUV to its ranks, E-Class version ruled out

It appears an even-money bet that the ultra-luxury brand Mercedes-Maybach will add an SUV to its ranks in the future, but there won't be an E-Class Maybach variant despite persistent rumours. The only Mercedes-Maybach models currently on sale are the Mercedes-Maybach S600 and the even lengthier Pullman version, but with SUVs proving lucrative, the range is almost certain to expand to include a high-riding, long-wheelbase, ultra-luxury vehicle of that type...

Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maybach : surprise badge return for Rolls challenger

The Maybach name may have been axed as a brand after more than a decade of losses but it will be revived as a badge for a Mercedes-Benz S-Class designed to take on Bentley and Rolls-Royce.

Maybach Vs Rolls-Royce: No Comparison is Possible

Maybach knows exactly how it feels to be the second horse in a one-horse race. It’s a kind of ‘trying too hard’, ‘me too’ Rolls-Royce Phantom that declines to look elegant despite being expensively coiffed, and which has failed to live up to its masters’ sales expectations here and right around the world...
