Consumer reviews of Maybach vehicles are positive, with reviewers describing the vehicles as the best car ever made. Daimler announced in November 2014 that the company is manufacturing the Maybach as a luxury version of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
Edmunds.com lists the average price paid for a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Maybach S600 as $185,244, while the manufacturer's suggested retail price is $190,275 as of December 2015. Consumer reviews list a large trunk and a nearly airtight cabin that prevents outside odors from entering the vehicle as positive features, while the only negative review is for the vehicle's gas mileage. One reviewer also drove a Phantom and a Bentley, and prefers the Maybach over the other luxury vehicles.
