Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maestro Edition Launched, Priced At Rs. 1.51 Crores
Still want that Rolls Royce?
Mercedes-Benz has launched the S-Class Maestro Edition with a price tag of Rs. 1.51 crores (ex-showroom, India).
The car’s launch was also accompanied by the launch of the latest edition of “Mercedes me connect” (Mmc) integrated with home automation and voice assistance.
Now, Mmc comes with 3 new exclusive features – Alexa Integration, Google Home Integration and Parking Solution POIs in Navigation – on all new cars. These features will be deployed OTA to all existing connected car owners as well.
The Parking Locations (POIs), for example, shows parking lots available across different parts of the cities, while Parking POIs (Points of interest) can be spotted using the vehicle’s navigation system or in the “Mercedes me” app maps section.
Moreover, using the Mercedes me app, customers can track the location of their vehicle, remotely lock or unlock it, open windows and sunroof, set speed alerts and access a plethora of other features.
Since it sports a mammoth asking price, the S-Class Maestro edition, which can also be had in new Anthracite Blue and Diamond White shades, comes with plentiful features.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Maestro Edition price gets customers a new high gloss brown eucalyptus wood trim inside, Magic Sky Control with panoramic sunroof, memory package for front seats and new Nut Brown leather upholstery.
There is more. The car also comes with Burmester surround sound system, chauffeur package with memory-function, electrically-adjustable rear seats with memory function, rear seat comfort package with reclining seats and massage function.
Furthermore, there is wireless charging (front and rear), rear seat entertainment system, sun protection package, and smartphone integration package with Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto, on offer as well.
Powered by a 2925cc in-line 6-cylinder diesel engine putting out 286 HP and 600 Nm, the S-Class Maestro, despite being a luxury saloon, can do the 0-100 km/hr sprint in 6 seconds.
Of course, modern cars cannot function without radar-based driving assistance features can they? Thus, the S-Class Maestro edition, over and above the multifold safety features that it has as standard, also comes with the tech.
This special edition is a stop-gap measure from Mercedes-Benz India until the seventh generation S-Class W223 arrives in the second half of this year.
