Mercedes-Maybach SUV Interior Previewed in New Sketch
Mercedes-Benz has confirmed it will debut a Maybach SUV concept at the Beijing auto show later this month. A teaser sketch reveals the model will feature a simplified dashboard layout with a large screen and copper-colored accents.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury demonstrates “how the typical strengths of an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV can be combined,” the automaker said in a statement. A previous teaser Mercedes released before revealing the identity of the vehicle showed off quilted leather seats, floral decor, and plenty of headroom in the rear.

The Mercedes-Maybach SUV will sit on the same platform as the new GLS. According to Autocar, it will debut in production form at the Los Angeles auto show before going to market in 2019.

Also confirmed to debut in Beijing is the Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan. Like the hatch, it receives Mercedes’ new infotainment system that leverages artificial intelligence and augmented reality. The hatch also receives a head-up display, massaging seats, and other features that belie its status as an entry-level model, and the sedan could follow suit. It will likely also feature S-Class driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, steering assist, and lane change assist functions as well as autonomous emergency braking and evasive steering assist that can help a driver avoid pedestrians. The model that will debut in Beijing is for China, but our own version of the A-Class sedan will make its way to the U.S. later this year.
The Beijing auto show begins April 25.
