The Auto Expo 2018 is already the hottest topic of this season. Adding to the fuel, the German luxury automaker has launched the Mercedes-Maybach S650 at Rs. 2.73 crores. Slotting just below the S-Class series in India, it was first showcased at Shanghai Motor Show in April 2017. The car sets a new benchmark when it comes to interior quality standards. Adopting design cues from the latest E-Class with autonomous technologies, it is the most powerful Mercedes in India yet.

The three-spoke steering instead of two-spoke design, multi-colored LED ambient lighting and 12.3-inch high-resolution display adds to its interior appeal, while the touch buttons at the steering remind of a smartphone screen, allowing the driver to handle everything without any hustle. In order to make it look different from S-Class, it gets Maybach signature on the C-pillar and wheels.

Moreover, it gets Burmester 3D surround sound system, entertainment system at the rear seat, four-zone automatic climate control and ventilated front seats with massage function.
